Synopsis A criminal with large sensitive hands that can hear words spoken through walls is captured by Cap and Bucky when he strangles the girlfriend of one of his gunmen after she accidentally cuts one of his fingers during a manicure. Sensitivo shoots the man, but he wants revenge, so he tells Cap that Sensitivo only pulls jobs during daylight hours because he is unable to differentiate between objects with his hands in the dark.
