(Captain America I#446 (fb)) – Learning of the Kubekult and curious about its agenda, S.H.I.E.L.D. sent agent Sharon Carter deep undercover as "Fraulein Rogers" to investigate the cult.
(Captain America I#446 (fb) – BTS) - Soon after, the Kubekult stole an incomplete Cosmic Cube containing the mind of the Adolf Hitler clone, the Hate-Monger, from the Red Skull.
(Captain America I#446 (fb)) - Sharon and the Skull’s paths eventually crossed and the two began working together to bring down the Kubekult.
(Captain America I#446 (fb) – BTS) - The Kubekult began using A.I.M. technology to spike the Cosmic Cube with energy for brief periods, allowing it flashes of full potency.
(Captain America I#445 – BTS) – Having restored Captain America to his prime, Sharon Carter led Captain America to a meeting with the Red Skull outside of the Kubekult’s headquarters.
(Captain America I#446) – Red Skull explained the Kubekult’s recent attempts to activate the Cosmic Cube containing the Hate-Monger’s mind. Venturing into the Kubekult’s headquarters, the Red Skull continued to explain about the Kubekult while Captain America and Sharon watched the Kubekult praising Hitler. Despite his misgivings and distrust of the Red Skull, Captain America knew the dangers posed by the Cube and leapt into battle against the Kubekult. During the fight, the Red Skull attempted to take the Cosmic Cube for himself but Cap knocked it from his hands and into Sharon’s, but she was knocked out by one of the Kubekult members. One of the Kubekult then tossed a grenade to cover their escape. Sharon Carter soon came to and began interrogating one of the Kubekult who was left behind, revealing that she had been undercover within the Kubekult as “Fraulein Rogers.” The trio then pursued the Kubekult to a military facility where a fight broke out between the soldiers and Captain America, whom they thought was working with the Red Skull to invade the base. Fighting his way inside after knocking out General Chapman, Captain America found the Kubekult inside, having connected the Cosmic Cube to an energy generator. Activating the Cube, the Kubekult transformed the American soldiers within the military base into Kubekult soldiers with advanced weaponry. Knowing he had to get to the Cosmic Cube, Captain America was shocked to find it and Sharon Carter were missing.
(Captain America I#447) – Captain America and the Red Skull dove for cover from the transformed American soldiers now serving the Kubekult. While Cap battled the heavily armored Kubekult members, the Red Skull escaped in another attempt to get the Cosmic Cube for himself. He was stopped by Kubekult members wielding an energy whip and was about to be killed by them until Cap arrived and rescued him. Using a bazooka, more Kubekult members blasted their way in, separating Cap and the Red Skull once more and giving Cap a chance to escape and find Sharon. Locating her on some rafters not far away, Cap found Sharon preparing to use the Cosmic Cube herself to defeat the Kubekult. Knowing how tempting the Cube could be, Captain America talked Sharon out of using it, but she instead gave it to Captain America to use. Using it, Captain America knocked the arriving Red Skull away from the Cosmic Cube then ordered the Cube to self-destruct. He then dropped the Cube and the Red Skull rushed and picked it up, using its last energy to place Captain America within it.
(Captain America I#448) – Sharon then revealed to the Red Skull that she had figured out his plan to place Captain America within the Cosmic Cube so that he could kill the Hate-Monger inside it. Trapping Cap in a world within the Cube that reflected World War II, the Red Skull was ordered to drop the Cube by arriving Kubekult members but when the Red Skull prepared to use the Cube against them, it would not respond to his commands. Sharon and the Skull retreated while Cap lived in a fantasy world within the Cosmic Cube. The Kubekult soon caught up with Sharon Carter and the Red Skull, but he created a plastic explosive that allowed them to escape into the military base’s inner room, buying time for Cap to defeat “Hitler” within the Cube. Eventually realizing he was living in a fantasy world, Captain America emerged from the Cosmic Cube through sheer force of will. Captain America and the Red Skull then fought over the Cosmic Cube until it exploded, seemingly taking the Red Skull with it. With the Cube apparently destroyed, the American soldiers that had been transformed into Kubekult members returned to normal. Captain America and Sharon then rounded up the true Kubekult members for the soldiers to take into custody, then left for S.H.I.E.L.D. to learn why they had kept Sharon’s undercover status a secret from Cap for so many years.
