Synopsis for "Said the Unicorn to the Ghost...!"

Luring the Unicorn to his lab, the Red Ghost fixes his equipment and restores his powers. Claiming the Unicorn needs injections that stop the hyper-activator's deadly effect, the Ghost blackmails the Unicorn into stealing Tony Stark's new Cosmic Ray Intensifier, secretly needing it to restore his own faded powers. Later, Tony Stark and Janice Cord attend Cord Manufacturing's reopening party. Jasper Sitwell reminds Stark that they're due at SHIELD'S Nevada testing ground in the morning and they leave before Janice can introduce new head scientist Alex Niven. As Stark and Sitwell rocket to the test site the Unicorn attacks, blowing a hole in the aircraft's side.

After pushing a parachuted Stark out, Sitwell fights the Unicorn. Changing into Iron Man, Stark watches the craft crash. As he flies towards the Unicorn's energy signature, two apes attack him. Meanwhile, the Red Ghost uses the intensifier on himself. When Iron Man crashes in with the apes, the Red Ghost empowers them as well, then turns into mist, the unpredictable cosmic rays having given him slightly different abilities from before. Before escaping, the Red Ghost reveals his plan to create a super-ape army and detonates his lab with Iron Man and the Unicorn still inside.


  • The Red Ghost's Apes in this issue shouldn't be confused with the Super Apes, who were intelligent mutants. The apes in this issue are merely trained apes.
  • This issue contains a letters page, "Sock It To Shell-Head". Letters are published from: Robert M. Leen, Charles Ottsoen, Max M. Hicks, Bob Krotts, Bob Moore, Jon O. Brunson, Larry (Mark) Ball, and Ronald D. Fryer.
  • Both Red Ghost and Unicorn appear next issue.
