Out of his armor - but never out of options! Tony Stark's day begins when he and the Avengers take on the Mandarin's Dragon of Heaven in Russia. Then, he joins the Fantastic Four to fight Kree crusader Ronan the Accuser on the moon. When he learns that if his enemies don't kill him, his armor will, he does his Golden Avenging via remote control - but someone else is waiting to control him and the armor both! Villain after villain strike in a wave of warfare, and a secret-identity crisis threatens to fracture one of Marveldom's oldest friendships! Guest starring Captain America, the Black Widow, Warbird and once-and-future War Machine James Rhodes!
