Appearing in "Of Beasts and Men!"
Synopsis for "Of Beasts and Men!"
Fury and Jones learn of the Unicorn's attack and investigate the nearby explosion to find scraps of Iron Man's armor. With their equipment damaged in the explosion, Iron Man and Unicorn team up to follow the Red Ghost to S.H.I.E.L.D.'s African science station, which the Red Ghost has penetrated in fog form, then subdued using an ape army gathered by Alpha, now possessing cosmic-ray enhanced strength, and Beta, who has mental control abilities. As the Ghost completes his boosted Ultra Cosmic Ray Intensifier, Iron Man and Unicorn attack, but are overpowered. However, when the Red Ghost tries to activate his device to empower his primate army, Beta mentally stops him, telepathically revealing his enhanced intellect rejecting the Ghost's plans for power. Beta orders Alpha to destroy the Intensifier, and the apes return to the jungle. Unicorn abducts the Red Ghost, leaving Iron Man behind to repair his armor.
(Mislabeled as IRON MAN #116:) The most unexpected team-up of all — Shellhead and the uncanny UNICORN — against the rampaging RED GHOST! And wait'll you learn how ol' Ghosty plans to conquer the world!
