Synopsis for "Judas Is a Woman"

A group of muggers oame across Tony Stark who is still drinking from the last issue. The muggers beat him up only to be stopped by a couple of guys. These guys take Tony, get him dressed in a tux, and drop him off Stane International where Obadiah Stane shows off the new 'Stane' sign to him and the other workers. Stane privately offers Iron Man a chance for Tony to be sober by rescuing Indries Moomji. Since she drove him to becoming an alcoholic, she could help reverse it. Stane orders everyone, especially Stark off his property.

Depressed, Tony starts to walk away when Rhodey catches up to him and carries him to his mother's place in Philadelphia.

After that, Rhodey flies off and fights the Sisters of Istar and gets Moomji. It is then revealed that she was not a prisoner but she had escaped Stane's clutches. She had also not cast any spells on Tony to make him an alcoholic but he had become one on his own. Much to his regret, Rhodey lets her go on her own.

After telling Stane that he had finally lost, Rhodey calls his Mother only to find out that Tony had left the house after drinking some cooking wine and disappeared.
