Episode Guide

  • The Wedding of Iron Man
    A big day has surprisingly arrived – Tony and Julia are getting married. Everything seems fine on the surface, but big problems go on behind-the-scenes. Nine days earlier, Tony watches footage of the Watchman incident and stumbles upon a horrible truth – the Mandarin has been spying on Force Works for some time. Footage of old battles further corroborates this – leading to concerns of what their foes know. Meanwhile, the Mandarin and company discover that Force Works is onto them, so they make use of their own footage. The truth then becomes clear to the Mandarin – Tony Stark and Iron Man are the same person. It looks like Tony and Julia's nuptials won't last long.moreless
  • Origin of Iron Man (2)
    Following a cave-in, Tony continues viewing his memories. While in the clutches of the Mandarin, he meets a fellow captive – Doctor Yinsen. Both men agree to develop a suit of armor together for their captor, but they really intend to escape their enemies. Keeping their work a secret and escaping are not as easy as the construction, however. Meanwhile, back in the present, both Force Works and the Mandarin's team are zeroing in on Tony's location. Also, Fing Fang Foom collects on the debt that the Mandarin owes him. Which side will find Tony first, and will the Iron Man armor be repaired in time?moreless
  • Origin of Iron Man (1)
    An early warning system claims a volcano will erupt near one of Stark Enterprise's microchip factories – forcing Iron Man to investigate. However, it is a trap, as a massive robot attacks him there. Even worse, Fing Fang Foom nearly finishes the job – sending a severely damaged Iron Man crashing. Hidden inside a glacier, he finds that it will take about six hours for his armor to repair itself. Only the armor's memory module can keep Tony going in the cold for that long. The most pivotal moments of his life are shown – from his reckless youth all the way up to the Mandarin capturing him after his heart injury. Meanwhile, Force Works searches for their missing leader, but they will have to beat all of the Mandarin's forces to the punch.moreless
  • Iron Man to the Second Power (2)
    The Dark Water Fever has been released by the Iron Man copy on a small scale and time is running out before it's released worldwide. The rest of Force Works simply believe their teammate is under the Mandarin's control and set out to find him. Spider-Woman and the Scarlet Witch find the real Iron Man at work deep underwater, but so does the Living Laser – who now works for the Mandarin and is spoiling for a fight. Meanwhile, War Machine, Hawkeye and Century find the Iron Man copy in a city with a spray tank full of the Dark Water Fever. Can the real Iron Man and Force Works prevent a global epidemic, or is the copy too much for even the genuine article?moreless
  • Iron Man to the Second Power (1)
    M.O.D.O.K. has nearly completed the Mandarin's latest demand – a robotic copy of Iron Man. To finish, though, the real Iron Man needs to be thoroughly scanned – meaning luring him into a fight. Unfortunately, a Stark Enterprises factory is destroyed in the process – threatening to put many out of work and ruin their progress. Iron Man leaves to find a way to keep the factory running, which the Mandarin has anticipated. The completed Iron Man copy "steals" the Dark Water Fever antidote from Justin Hammer, while the Mandarin's other forces enslave Peruvian farmers to create the fungus that causes the disease. The copy "demands" a ransom for not releasing the virus – endangering many lives and leaving the real Iron Man with the blame.moreless

Both sides notice that Hawkeye was nowhere to be found during the action – prompting certain suspicions. Hawkeye refuses to explain why he was absent and works to avoid being followed. He is not a traitor, but this situation still gives the Mandarin an idea. He and his forces conspire to make it appear that Hawkeye has betrayed Force Works – leaving them free to attack in the confusion. Will this ploy work? Also, why is Hawkeye being so secretive and going to Hammer Hills all of a sudden?moreless

Meanwhile, after the black box is opened up, Spider-Woman, Scarlet Witch and Century get more than they bargained for.

Surprisingly, M.O.D.O.K. goes to warn Force Works about this and even offers to defect. M.O.D.O.K.'s stake in this situation is simple – he is married to Alana. To gain Iron Man's trust, M.O.D.O.K. reveals the details of his tragic origin – his involvement with the Red Ghost, how he met Alana and why he serves the Mandarin.moreless
