A heart attack during an intense race leaves Tony Stark a prisoner in the wreckage of his own vehicle and far too weak to pull himself to safety. Only the bravery of ex-Boxer Happy Hogan, who pulls Tony out before the car explodes, spares the playboy a grim fate. Out of gratitude, Tony gives Hogan a job as his personal driver, and later introduces him to his secretary, Pepper, whom Hogan falls for immediately, but Pepper makes it clear she only has eyes for Tony.
Returning to his factory, Tony dons the Iron Man armor and thwarts an attempt to pilfer his vault of secret projects. Tony is lenient and lets the man go, but lives to regret it as the would-be thief returns as Jack Frost, a super-villain with the power to freeze anything -- or anyone -- instantly.
