He's perhaps the most misunderstood figure in the whole of CIVIL WAR! But now, get inside the mind of Tony Stark, and learn why he feels that superhuman registration is necessary, and why he's taken it upon himself to lead the charge for its implementation! Big changes are in store for IRON MAN in the post-CIVIL WAR landscape, and the build-up begins here!
Stark multitasks, recording a Registration Act Public Service Announcement while relite controlling his armor to battle a Dreadnought alongside Spider-Man, She-Hulk, and Doc Samson. Afterwards, Stark is picked up by Jack Kooning, who offers Stark command of SHIELD. Stark turns Kooning down, and Kooning reminds him that if the government hadn't covered up Stark's destruction of a civilian airliner and the 200 plus deaths that caused, it would be Iron Man, not Speedball, being used as the example why Registration is needed. In Sweden, Najeeb is being interviewed when he receives a call from his enforcer who says he's found "the second of ten", and that he has a lead on "the man". They agree to hire Spymaster to assist their quest. At Sal's place, Stark, Sal and Maya discuss the Registration Act. Informed by Sal that Stark is fallinf into a funk, Mrs. Rennie sends Happy to cheer him up. Tony explains to Happy that he feels Registration was inevitable, and he is only taking change of it to prevent it falling under bureaucratic control, something he feels the other heroes can't see. Heppy tells Stark that he feels his employer is the only hero who is both "one of us and one of them", and thus the only person who can see both sides of the Act. Happy heads back to the airport, but at his jet's hangar he is attacked by Spymaster, who intends to use him as bait to ambush Iron Man. Happy fights back, and their fight ends when both men fall from a hight gantry. As Happy lies bleeding, an oblivious Pepper waits for him to join her to celebrate their anniversary.
