Monocle is a German mercenary/spy, who was hired to disrupt a UN Summit and later by The Enclave to set up Security College.

Monocle was hired to start World War III by plotting an assassination at the UN Summit in New York. The Fantastic Four were hired as protection for the summit. Posing as a member of the Foreign Press Agency, the Monocle is discovered by Reed Richards. Monocle unsuccessfully shot Invisible Woman, the Thing and Reed with his Neutrak Ray blaster. The shocked Monocle was told by Reed that he had discovered Neutrak rays sometime ago and took precautionary countermeasures. Monocle was captured and turned over to the police.[1]

Monocle was later hired by the Enclave to set up a private college for children of the wealthy and powerful known as Security College[2]. Convinced by Monocle's envoys, Human Torch (Jonathan Storm) enrolled in the college, thinking it was a legitimate school.[3] The Enclave wanted to use the children to influence and gain access to the secrets of their parents. Under his control, the Monocle would send the students out to spy on their parents and bring back information. The Enclave chose to end the program, but Monocle disagred and continued to operate against their orders. Meanwhile, Peter Parker took an undercover job, taking candid photographs inside Security College. Posing as a new student, Parker bluffed his way past the guards and immediately runs into Johnny. Spider-Man (Peter Parker), with the help of Johnny, unravel the plan. However, after discovering Monocle's insubordination, the Enclave detonated the aircraft the Monocle was riding in.[4]
