Synopsis for "Retribution"
Samurai Steel's design is complete and he goes on a test flight, buzzing North Korea and blasting several jets from the sky. Tony Stark arrives at Asano robotics for a business deal, but Samurai Steel is indignant because Tony's father served on the Manhattan Project. Asano finally goes mad and attacks his own facility; Tony becomes Iron Man to combat Samurai Steel. Asano accidentally fires a particle beam into his own power plant. To save his people, Samurai Steel carries the reactor core into Earth's orbit where it explodes, killing him.
