Title: There's An Ape For That!

In the New York mansion of Tony Stark, a holographic butler asks Mr. Stark for his classical musical preference of the morning. Later, Tony enjoys his breakfast while reading the news on a floating digital monitor. Further into the day, Tony Stark suits up as Iron Man when he receives a Priority One Emergency Call.

In the college dorm room of Richard Rider, an oinking pig-shaped alarm clock tells Mr. Rider to wake up. Later, Rich eats his cold cereal breakfast while watching the news on an older television set. Further into the day, Richard Rider suits up as Nova when he receives a Priority One Emergency Call.

Minutes later, Iron Man joins Nova at a containment zoo for superpowered animals. They meet Kate McMillan, the zoo's director. The armored Avenger informs Ms. McMillan that the super-villain known as the Red Ghost has escaped from his stasis cell and they are certain he will come to the zoo to free his Super-Apes.

The Avengers fear that if the Red Ghost (with his intangibility powers) teams up with the powerful apes, they will be unstoppable. Despite the fact that Reed Richards of the Fantastic Four design the zoo's defenses, Iron Man has brought along a stasis field generator to trap the Red Ghost.

Director McMillan takes the two heroes to the area where the Super-Apes are contained. She introduces them to Mikhlo (a gorilla with super strength and invulnerability), Peotr (an orangutan with magnetic/gravitational power) and Igor (a baboon who is a shape-shifter that loves candy). Kate has discovered that the apes all possess low-level human intelligence with Igor most likely to adapt to his new life.

Suddenly, a cylinder shaped device enters the cell and a hologram of the Red Ghost appears to the apes. He instructs the superpowered simians to break free of their confinement and join him at Location M-22. Iron Man admits that they hadn't considered that scenario as Mikhlo pushes through the glass! Nova confronts the gorilla and gets knocked backwards into a wall.

Iron Man comes to Nova's aid by blasting Mikhlo who turns and throws the armored Avenger through the window. Rich prepares to rejoin the battle when he comes face-to-face with Peotr. The orangutan uses his mental powers to send the human rocket out the same window to join his teammate. The Super-Apes take the opportunity to escape the zoo.

Tony Stark begins making emergency repairs to his armor while Nova puts his helmet back on his head. Director McMillan informs Iron Man that the rest of the zoo was undamaged. Richard Rider begins to notice that his helmet is making him sweat and that it feels warm to the touch. Kate ponders the situation for a moment and then pulls out a piece of candy. Nova's helmet suddenly morphs into the shape of a baboon's arm! Rich quickly takes off his helmet to find that it has changed back into the shape-shifting Igor. Kate McMillan believes that the baboon has changed sides to join the heroes.

Igor takes the form of a flying monkey and begins to lead the Avengers to the Red Ghost's hideout. As they get closer, Igor shifts into the shape of a stoplight signalling the heroes to stop in mid-air.

As Iron Man and Nova search for their foes, the baboon simply points down to a nearby rooftop where the Red Ghost and the remaining Super-Apes are standing. The two Avengers attack but Rich flies straight through the intangible leader and Tony is thrown into a brick wall by Mikhlo as he was preparing the Stasis Field Generator! The damaged bricks are hurled from the top of the building down towards the unsuspecting public below! Suddenly, the shape-shifting baboon turns into Spider-Man and catches the bricks in a web.

Nova realizes that Mikhlo can't use his strength if he's not on the ground for leverage. Rich grabs the gorilla and flies his towards a pond in Central Park. The young hero also figures out that the powerful ape can't fight without air. Activating his uniform's internal support systems, the human rocket takes Mikhlo into the pond until he's unconscious.

Meanwhile, Iron Man and Igor face the Red Ghost and Peotr. Tony Stark is confident that the intangible Ghost will be easy to capture once the stasis field generator finishes charging. He is more concerned with stopping the orangutan. Nova thows the helpless Mikhlo into Peotr who shrugs off the gorilla's body. Igor suddenly turns into the shape of a tuning fork and begins generating a frequency in the air. Iron Man realizes that the particular wavelength is cancelling out Peotr's powers! Nova takes advantage of the situation and knocks the orangutan out cold!

Tony turns to face the Red Ghost with his fully charged generator. However, the Super-Apes' leader pulls out a weapon and disintegrates the stasis field generator before it can be used!

Without warning, a pigeon that has been near the Red Ghost begins to glow. An energy bubble forms around the super-villain and he is unable to get free! Iron Man reveals that he had created a second stasis field generator disguised as a pigeon as a backup plan.

The heroes look around trying to find Igor in order to thank him for his help. Tony admits that he has grown to like the shape-shifting baboon until Igor appears in the shape of Iron Man. The armored Avenger then decides he doesn't like the super ape very much anymore.
