Amazing Mystery Funnies v. 2 #8 - pt. 2
Should this be a giant robot, or is this too big for giant? Is this a gargantuan robot instead? Also note that Gargantuan robots have a chance of being armed with magnetic ray beams.
Gigantopithecus, an actual prehistoric ape that was 9 1/2' tall and weighed around 1,100 lbs. It would be a 6 HD ape .
The ape can wreck things, at least as well as a 2nd level superhero.
Perhaps more curiously, the police at the world's fair seem remarkably well-equipped, with gas masks, sleep gas bombs, and (on this page), anti-aircraft guns.
Once The Fantom gets the ape in a choke hold, the ape's low saves keep him from reversing the hold, and it can't use wrecking things to break the hold because The Fantom is a higher level superhero. The grappling attack renders the ape unconscious first, which is how it is able to take lethal damage from the fall (normally falling damage only makes you unconscious).
