Synopsis for “The Menace of the Monster-Master!!”
At a Japanese conference, after Iron Man demonstrates electro-magnetic power uses, he is approached by Prof. Goro Watanabe, his daughter Fujiko, and his assistant Toru Tarakato, who ask if he’d like to accompany them on a trip to a nearby island that’s emitting strange energy readings. When they arrive, they’re attacked by Zoga, a beast of myth. The beast is too powerful for Iron Man so everyone flees; afterwards Zoga lands and is greeted by a Chinese general and his soldiers. Revealed as a robot, Zoga’s cockpit opens up and the Monster-Master emerges, and discusses taking over Japan. Stark and Prof. Watanabe’s attempts to warn the Japanese Defense Council about Zoga are dismissed, so they prepare their own plans. Soon after, the Monster-Master attacks Japan with Zoga, but Iron Man defeats the robot by reflecting its eye-lasers back at it, destroying it. Iron Man pulls the Monster-Master out of the wreck, revealing him to be Toru.
