Synopsis for "Meltdown!"Edit

Rhodes holds his first board meeting then has dinner with Rae. After spending the night together he wonders how she feels about dating a black man. Rae has no problem with it. Morgan Stark seeks Marcie out and makes her a job offer. Tony continues to retrace his life's activities while in cryogenic sleep. The Atom Smasher attacks a Stane nuclear plant and Rhodes decides to intervene as Iron Man but cannot reason with him.
