Synopsis for "Steel Secrets"
Iron Man arrives, and the two banter about Tony's political position as Baron, before talk turns to Jim's gut feeling over the reasoning behind the duel. Tony suspects Kingpin, but Jim is unsure. They then discuss vigilantes in Technopolis including Spyder-Man and Radar Devil. Iron Man suggests they should be arrested, but informs War Machine that he's off to meet with Spyder-Man anyway.
Meanwhile, Iron Man's brother, Arno, meets with Wilson Fisk at Stark Tower and assesses the valuable data compiled by having paid Titanium Man to fight War Machine. The Kingpin assures Arno that Titanium Man's silence has been bought and that fail-safes are in place.
Elsewhere in the city, Spyder-Man is late for work as he heads to his planned meeting with Iron Man. He reveals himself to be Peter Urich and plans to tell Tony that he's uncovered the truth about that which ails Technopolis, forcing her citizens to wear armor just to survive.
