Tales Of Suspense #88-90 (Captain America)
Issue(s): Tales Of Suspense #88, Tales Of Suspense #89, Tales Of Suspense #90 (Captain America stories only)
Meanwhile the Swordsman and Power Man are also being brought to the island by means of a floating bubble. They are given orders to fight Cap, and they do.
Cap beats them and then the mystery mastermind tells him about the power of the floating bubble technology and how only he knows the secret of Bucky. The next issue reveals the mastermind to be the Red Skull.
The Red Skull makes Cap fight a robot, and then a Bucky robot.
Then he does the closing walls deathtrap thing, but Cap escapes. Cap catches up with the Red Skull after the Skull has used his bubble technology to lift up the heart of Manhattan into the sky. This is, i believe, the biggest scheme executed by a super-villain in Marvel History so far.
Cap agrees to work for the Red Skull for 24 hours in order to prevent him from destroying Manhattan. You'd think the Red Skull wouldn't be willing to try that again considering what happened the last time, but he probably enjoyed getting Cap to go on television to announce his new allegiance.

i always loved an episode of the old spiderman cartoon where the villain makes the isle of manhatten float in the air. and spidey webswings underneath the floating island to get to him. and that cartoon was probably produced about the same time as this issue.
