Ra and murder those who were near the ruby.
He sold it to the wealthy Mr. Bates, and at a party hosted by Bates told the party goers of his woe and how he was glad to be rid of a "accursed" ruby. Among those in attendance at the party was government agent Betsy Ross, and unaware to all the party was being staked out by Captain America and Bucky.
Pretending to retire for the night, Sanders changed into his Ra costume and confronted Mr. Bates, calling himself "Ra, the Avenger" and choked Mr. Bates to death. Captain America and Bucky attempted to stop "Ra", but he managed to escape and change his costume and arrived on the murder scene with the other party guests in order to shake suspicion. Later, Sanders killed the electricity in the house to steal the ruby from Bates' safe, however Captain America and Bucky beat him to the punch and recovered the ruby, and decided to hold onto it until "Ra" was captured.
Later that night, Henry -- as Ra once again -- murdered Bates partner Parker before fleeing when Captain America and Bucky arrived. Before he could get away, Ra ran into Betsy Ross who shot at him forcing him to flee. When Sanders appeared shortly after, frightened that he could be killed next, Ross became suspicious and called the FBI to do a background check on Sanders. When the FBI confirmed her suspicions she was attacked by Ra. However, before Sanders could murder her as well, Betsy was rescued by Captain America and Bucky who beat Ra into submission. Unmasking the villain, they revealed his true identity confirming Betsy's suspicions. The Ruby of the Nile was turned over to Mr. Bates' daughter Marina and Sanders was turned over to the authorities.
Henry Sanders was a professional explorer and expert on ancient Egypt and Egyptian mythology, he was able to read hieroglyphics.
When operating as "Ra, the Avenger" he wore a mask fashioned after the Egyptian god Ammon Ra in his humanoid bird form. He also utilized some form of smoke projection to fill a room with choking smoke to disorientate his victims.
