Iron Man [Tony Stark]; Sub-Mariner [Namor] (cameo); Warlord Krang; Lady Dorma
On returning from the Orient, Tony Stark finds his money has been impounded, his factories shut down, and there's a warrant out for his arrest--all for failing to appear before Senator Byrd's Congressional committee! Weak and low on power, he goes to Pepper's apartment--but she's not home. In a stairwell, he dons his suit of armor and does an emergency charge. After having no better luck at Avengers HQ or Happy's apartment, he strolls down to the waterfront to think. But from the waters rises Warlord Krang's flagship! On the run with Lady Dorma, he sees a chance to impress her, and attacks! As she tries to stop him, Iron Man strikes back, sending his ship fleeing. Desperate, Iron Man flies to his factory and crashes in thru a skylight. But he barely gets to his feet when he's suddenly confronted with--Sub-Mariner!
