This second volume collects Invaders stories from Invaders #10-#21 and Annual #1.

Issue 10 has a brief recap of the battle with Baron Blood that ended the previous book and left the elderly Union Jack unable to continue. However, that's only a framing story for a reprint of a golden age Captain America story from Captain America #24 which was pretty entertaining but also not what the book was about.
