Synopsis for "The Crimson Dynamo Strikes Again!"Edit

Vanko toils unsuccessfully to construct a laser ray gun safe to use. In Moscow Khrushchev orders two agents, the Black Widow and Boris to dispose of Vanko and Stark, and if necessary Iron Man. The two travel to America in a submarine. Presenting herself as "Madame Natasha" the Black Widow has no problems convincing Tony Stark to show her around his munitions plant. With Stark occupied Boris neutralizes Vanko with the Jet Paralyzer and brings his captive to the submarine,

Boris returns to the factory, dons the Crimson Dynamo suit and starts wrecking the factory. Iron Man, thinking the ensuing fire to be a mere accident, is caught unaware and paralyzed by Boris in the Crimson Dynamo suit. Iron Man is also brought to the submarine. There he manages to recharge his suit, rescue Vanko and return to the factory. Iron Man fights the new Crimson Dynamo, but is distracted by the Black Widow at the critical moment. Vanko fires his experimental laser light pistol at Boris. This causes an explosion and both are killed. The Black Widow escapes.
