Synopsis for "Ashes to Ashes"
Rhodes scatters what he thinks are Tony's ashes. At a reception following the event Kathy Dare tries to apologize to him, but he angrily blames her for Tony's death and drives her away. Spymaster, Beetle, Blizzard and Blacklash sneak into Stark Enterprises using a news helicopter, then remotely crash it into the reception as a distraction, before attacking the facility in order to tap into Stark's computers to steal company secret files. Rhodes becomes Iron Man and battles the four villains, swiftly defeating them. However, four of the Avengers arrive on the scene and immediately assume that he is behind the attacks, as they are aware he cannot be Tony inside the armor.
