As the two titans clash, the Titanium Man unleashing his various powers against Iron Man, the world watches the entire event on live television. As Happy Hogan and Pepper Potts watch the fight, Countess Stephannie De La Spirosa is searching for Tony Stark to watch the fight with (not knowing that Stark is really Iron Man), she breaks into Stark's hotel room and finds the experimental new transistor that he is working on in order to entice Stark to look for her.
While back in the battle field, Iron Man manages to fight off Titanium Man's attacks, but is slowly sustaining damage and is being over powered, however Iron Man manages to make it to the end of the round when a brief intermission is called. Returning to his room to get the new transistor in order to be a match the Titanium Man, Iron Man finds it missing and comes across the Countesses' handkerchief, he then sends Happy Hogan to find her and bring the device to him.
Making quick repairs, Iron Man returns for round two of their battle. As the battle rages on, Happy manages to find the Countess and convince her to give him the device. Arriving on the battle field, Happy attempts to bring it to Iron Man, but finds himself struck down by a deflected blast from the Titanium Man's weapons, critically injuring him. Just before Happy apparently dies, he reveals that he knows Iron Man is his boss, Tony Stark.
