Synopsis for "Ultimate Devastation"

Ultimo makes his way across Washington towards Sapper's ship near Spokane. Iron Man tries to take him down like he did before, but discovers Ultimo is able to learn and adapt. With the Avengers overseas and unlikely to make it back on time to help, it's up to just Stark, Golden-Blade and Sapper to stop Ultimo. Stark gets an idea when Pepper mentions Mandarin's control of Ultimo and asks for the codes Stark-Fujikawa used on Ultimo. Warbird, having checked herself out of the hospital, wanders into a Seattle pub and sees the fight on TV. She realizes why Iron Man ditched her and goes to help. Stark has her retrieve a system tap and uses it to penetrate into the core of Ultimo's programming. He manages to gain control and stop the robot's progress. As S.H.I.E.L.D. disassembles Ultimo, Sapper and Blade take off in Sapper's ship and Tony gets Warbird to go into Alcoholics Anonymous.
