Synopsis for "Night of the Walking Bomb!"

Happy is hospitalized: his life in danger. Iron Man flies the Enervator to the hospital, knowing that it has turned Happy into the Freak in the past but hopes that by exposing Happy to its effects, he will heal. Dr. Ritter performs the operation, but the Enervator turns Happy into the Freak again.

Meanwhile, Detective O'Brien talks to an officer involved in the investigation into his brother's death, but is unconvinced when told Stark and Iron Man aren't responsible.

Back at the hospital, Iron Man and Dr. Ritter search for the Freak, finding him in the hospital's cobalt storage room. Having absorbed the cobalt radiation, the Freak has become a walking bomb. While Dr. Ritter evacuates the hospital, Iron Man fights the Freak. The battle spills outside where the Freak uses a wrecking ball and crane as weapons before destroying a police helicopter. He then grabs Iron Man, his radiation fusing the Golden Avenger's circuits.
