Synopsis for "The Mask in the Iron Man - Part One: A Boy And His Toys"

At a technology convention, Tony uses the Iron Man armor to demonstrate the new SKIN nanotechnology. Later, Tony's jealousy over Rumiko's flirtations gets the best of him and causes Rumiko to angrily blurt out she's in love with him. He says nothing and she runs off, embarrassed. Donning the armor to forget his troubles, Stark's alone-time is interrupted by Whiplash. During the fight, Whiplash cracks Tony's armor and the lightning from the surrounding storm strikes one of the whips and sends them both falling to the ground. Tony wakes up in the hospital surrounded by his friends when Rumiko bursts in angrily. She shows him the cover of the newspaper with a photo of his face exposed in the armor.
