Synopsis for "The Challenge"
Iron Man tests his armor to ensure that it won't be compromised again as it was by Justin Hammer. Tony takes Bethany out to the Playboy club, not noticing that a vagrant is spying on his movements. The Titanium Man attacks the local Lions Club, where Iron Man was set to appear until the members got Rodney Dangerfield instead. He heads to Times Square where, with Tony and Bethany in the crowd, he announces his intent to destroy Manhattan.
