The Foundry Haunter was a ghost that haunted a UR Steel mill.

HistoryEdit

Upon attempting to capture the haunter at a UR Steel mill, Egon Spengler accidentally knocked him into a vat of molten steel and his energy readings quickly faded away, leaving Egon to assume he disintegrated. [1] [2] In actuality, the ion streams from the Particle Throwers electrolyzed the ghost and fused it to the molten steel. [3] The interference from the rigid molecular structure of steel put off negative readings when the P.K.E. Meter was used. [4]

The molten steel was then formed into workable material, and shipped out to be used in everyday life. They soon came to life in various shapes and sizes: a refrigerator at a Dears department store, a repairman's cable line, nails at a hardware store, can food at a super market, a new sculpture at an art museum, construction site girders, and even a new pole for the Firehouse. Each item with the haunted steel responded to a natural tendency to reunite and traveled on the New Jersey Turnpike to a Noble's Salvage junkyard in New Jersey. [5] The possessed steel chose to form together and try to re-create the haunter. Instead, it formed into a much larger, more threatening monster which was impervious to the Proton Streams.

Even using the car crusher in the scrap yard didn't stop the haunter's metallic form, because the compacted cube was able to fold out and regroup into a second form. By accident, Peter activated a crane's large magnet, trapping the metal pieces, and preventing it from reforming. Using the Ecto- 1 to tow the crane, they brought the steel back to the U.R. Steel mill where they melted the metal and freed the Haunter. Peter and Winston Zeddemore confined him and Egon trapped him.
