Captain America's USO Shows
Steve Rogers was chosen as the new public hero of World War II due to his heroic persecution of Heinz Kruger in the streets of New York City. The event became a front page in the newspapers, and Senator Brandt realized he had potential as a public symbol to boost the morale of the nation, and promote the purchasing of War Bonds.
Rogers joined the USO and began touring the nation in a colorful costume as "Captain America", accompanied by a chorus named the Star Spangled Singers, Philadelphia being one of the many cities visited.
Rogers' shows included Rogers' speech about the role of the common citizen during the war, a dancing show by the Star Spangled Singers, feats showing Rogers' strength, a climatic moment when Captain America punched another actor portraying Adolf Hitler and the possibility of getting an autograph or a photo with Captain America.
Chase of Grant Ward
Melinda May coordinated the chase of Grant Ward, having positioned many agents, including Bobbi Morse, Lance Hunter and Antoine Triplett, in all the known hotboxes that Ward had in locations near the place he escaped federal custody.
Morse updated the status of the agents she was coordinating, and asked the reason a nationwide manhunt had not been established, given Ward actually escaped from federal custody, but his older brother, Senator Christian Ward, covered the incident to avoid political repercussions, so S.H.I.E.L.D. had to locate the fugitive without further assistance.
Triplett, stationed in a bus depot that served as Ward's hotbox in Philadelphia, witnessed how Ward entered a bus station and went to retrieve one of his boxes. Triplett asked for permission to kill Ward, but May warned him to stand by and wait for orders.
Director Phil Coulson informed them that Senator Ward wanted his brother alive, but Coulson ordered them to bring Ward by any means necessary. However, Ward knew he was being watched, and outfitted himself with an explosive vest filled of C-4, warning Triplett from a distance that he would detonate the explosives if he engaged.
Coulson ordered Triplett not to engage, letting Ward board a bus to Atlanta, and gave further orders to May, wanting her to continue coordinating the whole mission from the Quinjet and position Lance Hunter and Bobbi Morse in Atlanta.
