Synopsis for "Enter: Dr. Spectrum"
Iron Man saves Roxanne Gilbert from debris knocked loose during a storm in Detroit. Tony Stark then meets with Roxanne at her apartment to try and convince her that his company is no longer in war profiteering. Tony returns to his Detroit offices to comfort Pepper as she deals with the break-up with Happy. In Long Island, Happy tries to find Tony and Pepper, only to learn they are in Detroit. Happy and old friend Eddie March are present as Dr. Obatu visits the Long Island plant. When Obatu is attacked by a band of costumed men, Eddie helps him and Obatu offers him a bodyguard job. Eddie agrees to go with Obatu to Detroit to see Tony. While Tony is working on a construction site in Detroit, Dr. Spectrum of the Squadron Sinister attacks. Iron Man battles him, but the fight is inconclusive and Spectrum escapes. Later, Tony meets with Pepper who expresses her frustration with Happy for denying her a career and suddenly engages Tony in a kiss; just then, Happy enters the office.
