Emperor Ape, in a another bid for world domination, attacked the labs of Veridian Dynamics, in the center of the city. With him, he brought other members of the Crime Syndicate, the monstrous Behemoth, deadly assassin Killshot, the mind scrambler Eggsterminator, the mighty MANtis, and his simian super weapon ChimPANZER.
The Emperor and his ChimPANZER
Emperor Ape was trying to steal the final component he needed for his dreaded Monkeyfier, a ray that would turn the world's population into simians under his control.
Only the Gallant Guardians could stop him. Arriving on the scene were the mammoth Doc Titan, aging government weapon, A.J.A.X., the tiny Mexican wrestler turn hero Flea, galactic heroine Galaxina, Cyclops and that tasty perveyor of Justice, Hero Sandwich.
Things started off badly for our heroes when A.J.A.X was brought down almost immediately by a mind scramble from Eggsterminator. MANtis managed to break into the labs while his evil cohorts kept the heroes at bay.
Cyclops managed to blast Behemoth right through a wall of the local comic shop with one of his gazer-laser. But, Behemoth answered by hurling a taxi at the one-eyed hero and taking him out of the fight.

Meanwhile, Flea bounced up the building for a roofstop scrap with Killshot and Eggsterminator, The miniscule mite held his own for a awhile.
Down in the lobby of the building Doc Titan battled Emperor Ape. Titan got the upper hand, but soon, the missing piece was discovered and the Emperor and his larcenous crew escaped. How soon before we're all turned to monkeys?
