Happy has returned to Stark's factory. Pepper is very pleased to see him but Happy doubts her sincerity. Stark's philandering cousin, Morgan, envious of Tony's success, agrees to help Count Nefaria in his scheme to discredit Stark. This involves Tony witnessing and reporting a (fake) alien invasion. Believing Stark to be delusional, Senator Byrd is ready to pull the plug on his contracts. When some real aliens turn up they are chased off by Iron Man. Morgan is compelled to verify Tony's version of events. Tony's good name is restored. Morgan must explain himself to a displeased Nefaria.
