Synopsis:
Iron Man is a prisoner of the Mandarin, held fast to a giant wheel by concentrated titanium bonds, Mandarin proceeds to relate his origin. The Mandarin then declares his intentions to conquer the world and to "spin" Iron Man to death. The Mandarin leaves, not realizing that the spinning wheel is recharging Iron Man's armor, like a bicycle wheel recharges a small generator. Iron Man then thwarts Mandarin's world-domination plan by disrupting a Chinese missile launch and then redirecting the missile back to China. They fight until the Chinese turn up, branding Mandarin a traitor. Mandarin flees.
