  This was a nice idea, IM & Unicorn teaming up.

  Why is it that teamed up villains can do just about anything, but non-team heroes can't team up worth a damn at this point?

  Why couldn't they just let the red ghost die off or something?

  I should have known this would be a dumb issue after seeing monkeys on the cover.

  Super apes are a guilty pleasure.

  As silly as he is, Red Ghost actually made a potent plan and carried it through.

  3 stars more for the Unicorn than the Red Ghost!

Threads - Egad, the Red Ghost's new costume is horrible!!! His old jumpsuit was actually better!!

De Plane - I think someone is taking the term gunship way too far!!! (p9,p1)

Monkey Business - I don't like these new apes, and actually miss the original three!!!

Red Mist - Interesting twist to the Red Ghosts power!!

'Nuff Said - "I was to fight Iron Man...not some miserable monkeys!"-Unicorn

  I don't know why but I kind of like the Unicorn. Maybe because he's just the right level of crazy. I mean, the guy is called the Unicorn and seems really proud of it.

  The Red Ghost! I haven't seen him since.....errr, wait a minute; I didn't miss this guy at all.

Typical plan: he gets an underling, secures his allegiance with a mortal hold, underling attempts specific crime in his name and then gets betrayed after success. But who knew the Unicorn would actually come through, of all people?

I do wonder what happened to the original baboons the Red Ghost had before. Is there an untold story here? Maybe at some point we'll see old monkeys vs. new.

3 stars.

  I wish Lisa Frank drew all the comics that Unicorn appears in

@Russ the Red Ghost says they were liquidated for being uncontrollable

  Russ, the Red Ghost says his apes were liquidated in one of these issues (I can't remember which).

So does this device collect cosmic rays from the atmosphere or do you need to bombard the machine with them to make it work? Can it store them up like a battery? I don't understand the process. Can we get some technical schematics, please? Because everyone loved when those appeared in comics.

  Unicorn is growing on me. I despised him in his first appearance, and disliked him in his second. By now, I'm feeling neutral to positive about him.

  Man, that Red Ghost is going to be something on the Disco floor and it's only 1969!

Would I watch this story on a Saturday morning TV show?

Yes I would!

Three well earned stars.
