Synopsis for "Extremis (Part IV of VI)"
Iron Man fires his chest laser blasting Mallen backwards. He then uses the last of his power reserves to catch the car that Mallen was prepared to smash on top of him. Mallen flees, and races off across the desert at 300 miles per hour. Tony contacts Maya and has her contacts airlift him to FuturePharm.
Inside of a special medical bay, Maya begins slowly removing Iron Man's armor so that she can treat his internal injuries. Naturally, she learns that Iron Man is actually Tony Stark. Tony's injuries are severe. He realizes that the only way for him to survive is if Maya injects him with the Extremis serum. Maya is reluctant to do so, as she is afraid of what side effects may develop. Tony has little choice however. He requires the genetic rewriting that Extremis can provide or else he will die. Maya injects him with the serum and Tony begins going into convulsions. After several minutes, his body stops moving. Tony appears to be dead!
