Communist camp commander Boris Bullski wants to take on Iron Man and releases some of his prisoners to construct an armor, making him Titanium Man. Senator Byrd wants Iron Man to take up the challenge. Tony, worried about his heart, upgrades his armor and flies to Alberia along with Pepper and Happy. At the hotel, the Countess de la Spiroza flirts with Tony, making Pepper jealous. Iron Man battles Titanium Man but stumbles into a secretly-prepared minefield and is caught up in the resulting explosion. Happy wonders why Tony hasn't come to watch the battle.
