Letters Column: Avengers Assemble!
A stone version of the Black Knight enters Avengers Mansion. He vows revenge against the Avengers for abandoning him. First he defeats Iron Man, Beast, and Yellow Jacket. Then he defeats Captain America and the Wasp. Then he defeats Wonder Man and the Scarlet Witch. The Vision appears and defeats the stone Black Knight imitation, while telling him that he is not Dane Whitman, but a "ghost of stone", created by someone unknown, for revenge against the Avengers. The stone creature flies into a rage upon hearing this, and destroys himself.
