Synopsis for "Crash"

Against the wishes of Nick Fury and SHIELD, an aged Tony Stark is about to sell some of his most prized inventions to a Japanese competitor.

Unfortunately, the bad guys' contingency plan results in the robotic armor gaining sentience, and Stark has no choice but to let it be free (DH 11-26-2001)
