Synopsis for "The Return of the Hero"Edit

The Titanium Man begins to rampage in Times Sq., Tony leaves Bethany and becomes Iron Man. He is upset when he sees that the crowd fears him as much as the titanium man thanks to his apparent murder of Serge Kotznin. Iron Man and Titanium Man engage in a destructive battle across Manhattan during which Iron Man recalls the martial arts tips he learned from Capt. America and uses them to his advantage. The fight culminates in Rockefeller Center, where Iron Man manages to tear off the Titanium Man's helmet and pummel him unconscious. The crowds are ecstatic at Iron Man's victory and he seems to have finally regained his popularity. Tony takes Bethany back to her apartment in the evening.
