Iron Man's armor is critically injured. To stay alive Tony relives the events that lead to him become a superhero.
- In this episode, it is stated that Justin Hammer caused Walter Stark's death. However, in "Not Far From the Tree", it is stated that A.I.M. caused it. It is possible, though unstated and unlikely, that Hammer worked with A.I.M. to do it.
