Iron Man #114
Issue(s): Iron Man #114
The revelations about Arsenal's origin are arguably more significant, especially in light of later revelations about Tony Stark's father, but that isn't yet touched on in this issue.
Iron Man has brought the Unicorn to Avengers Mansion so that they can help with the Unicorn, who is dying.
The Unicorn wakes up, gets free, and goes on a rampage...
...still directed by who we know to be the Titanium Man.
During the fight, the Unicorn winds up in a basement underneath the Mansion, and activates Arsenal.
Arsenal knocks out the Unicorn and then attacks the Avengers itself.
Eventually Arsenal disappears, and none of the Avengers are aware of where it came from. Stark says that the Unicorn will be taken back to Stark International and put on life support.
The Spymaster continues to creep around at Stark.
A friend of mine, a big fan of Keith Giffen's later DC work, was looking over my shoulder while i was reading this, and pointed out this sequence as being representative of Giffen's layouting style (this is just Madame Masque arriving at one of Stark's penthouse apartments).
I liked these panels.
