Stark meets old friend Joey Cosmatos, who is being harassed by thugs. When Stark tries to help him, he'll find several surprises.
Joey Cosmatos is a struggling comedian and former college buddy of Tony, and now he needs help. His daughter has been kidnapped by some gang who also stole away a version of the Iron Monger armor that Joey built. He needs a million dollars for his daughter's ransom, but when he hands over the money the crooks decide that he can't be left alive. Tony tries to save the day with another suit case full of money, but when that doesn't work he has to don his other business suit and go toe to toe with this version of Iron Monger. Once it is all over Tony offers Joey a job, but he decides that he has a new show to take on the road, starring him and his daughter, Nicole.
