Meanwhile in A.I.M.'s base, a man named Mordius who has aspirations to lead A.I.M. manages to duplicate the Iron Man armor and Tony has to fight three Iron Men. Luckily the duplications aren't perfect and the men inside aren't as experienced with their armor, which shifts the odds in Stark's favor. Seeing this, Mordius orders for the heavy weapons, specifically the the Rocket Cannon.
