History: (Fantastic Four I#13) - When the Red Ghost first fought the Fantastic Four in the Blue City on the moon, he managed to discover and bring an ancient disintegrator weapon under his control. He had the device rigged up behind a wall of stone, and intended to blast the Human Torch with it when he burned through the wall to catch him. However, the Invisible Girl had secretly witnessed the Red Ghost hatch his plot, and she warned her brother off just in time. She showed the disintegrator to the Torch, as it could not detect her, and the Torch melted it into slag.

Comments: Created by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko.

This weapon may be similiar in design to the energy cannon that killed the Phoenix in X-Men I#137.
