Iron Man [Tony Stark]; Machine Man; Jim "Rhodey" Rhodes; Bambina "Bambi" Arbogast; Vic Martinelli; Morley Erwin (intro)
Thinking that Iron Man is a robot, Machine Man comes looking for him to see if Iron Man has any answers to problems that Machine Man hasn't been able to solve. Stark, drunk from an alcohol bender, thinks Machine Man has been sent by Obadiah Stane and confronts him. Machine Man defeats Iron Man and learns that there is a human inside the armor and hastily leaves. Rhodey is able to defeat two of Stane's men and flies Stark's jet back to the United States. Stark slips deeper into the bottle.
