 The Spy Who Killed Me! 
From a rooftop across the street from Tony Stark's penthouse, the Spymaster fires a sniper rifle. The bullet smashes through the office window striking Tony Stark in the back of the head. Content with a job well-done, the Spymaster runs off. What he doesn't yet realize, is that the man he "killed" was actually an artificial Life Model Decoy designed to resemble Tony Stark. The real Tony Stark, garbed in his Iron Man armor, steps out from behind a concealed wall panel. After examining the remains of the destroyed LMD, he flies out the window after Spymaster. He catches up to Spymaster's getaway hover jet, but the vehicle is on automatic pilot. The real Spymaster is miles away.

Tony reflects on the previous evening. He recalls attending a high society party where he met a woman named Bethany Cabe. At the time, he had no idea that he was being secretly watched by a disguised Spymaster. Iron Man has no idea what brought Spymaster back into his life.

Iron Man flies to Stark International where he discovers evidence of Spymaster's actions. He encounters him in the computer center and Spymaster keeps him at arms length with an odd array of hi-tech weaponry. Iron Man continues to pursue him, but Spymaster knocks him off guard by slamming into him with a Monorail car.

While Tony's distracted, Spymaster leaves the plant. Iron Man gives chase and Spymaster launches a missile at him designed to interfere with the armor's cybernetic circuitry. Upon impact, the missile also sets off an incendiary charge, and Iron Man's armor bursts into flames. Iron Man dissipates the flames with his built-in foam ducts and flies towards Spymaster. Spymaster tries to deflect Iron Man's attack with his electrified nunchakus, but the Avenger is ready for him this time. He catches up to the villain, grabs him and hurls him across the facility onto the S.I. airfield. The impact knocks Spymaster unconscious. Iron Man recovers what Spymaster had stolen from the computer center - the file records of Stark International's stockholders.

Meanwhile, Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D. presides over a joint conference with NATO. Their goal is to muscle Tony Stark into relinquishing the rights to his weapons technology.
