Synopsis for "Casino Fatale"Edit
While Iron Man is flying over Manhattan he suddenly loses control of one boot jet and crashes through Marvel Comics office building (and an editorial meeting) and only narrowly comes to a safe halt. He returns to Stark International to test the armor against its recent malfunctions but everything seems to be in perfect order. Tony takes Bethany out to Atlantic City for a day and they wind up in the casino when Blizzard, Melter and Whiplash arrive to rob the premises. While sneaking off to become Iron Man, Tony upsets Uranus Bliss at a slot machine. Iron Man is able to fend off each of the criminals but when the trio combine their attacks simultaneously hitting him with heat and freezing cold, his armor starts to weaken and Whiplash prepares to crack it open with his whip.
