The Mandarin has Iron Man all figured, and is ready to expose him to the world! But can the Iron Playboy convince the mandarin that things aren't what they seem? Find out in this thrilling issue, when the Invincible Iron Man is unmasked!
Having deduced that somebody has discovered his identity, Iron Man has tricked the Mandarin into thinking that somebody else is Iron Man. For when the Mandarin has Iron Man at his mercy he unmasks him to find a different man under the armor (actually Stark wearing a mask) while an LMD of Stark has called the press to one of his cabins.
Hoping to destroy "Stark" the Mandarin binds Iron Man to go after his foe, however the real Stark breaks free of the trap and chases after his arch-nemesis and saves his LMD "self" from the Mandarin. While battling the Mandarin, the press who have gathered listen intently while the Mandarin boasts about his plot to frame Stark for treason (Clearing Stark's name in the process.)
Hoping to escape, Mandarin captures Janice Cord and tries to escape in his ship. Iron Man boards and tries to stop him, however it's not until Mei Ling realizes how evil the Mandarin is and that he can never love her, that Stark manages to save Janice when Mei Ling tries to stop her lover. Her interference costs Mei Ling her life, however Iron Man and Janice manage to escape while the Mandarin's ship crashes into the side of a mountain, seemingly killing his foe.
