industries more successful than ever.
The Mandarin later kidnapped Tony Stark. The Mandarin demanded he build him an invincible suit of armour so he can conquer
the world. Tony suffered serious injuries to his spine whilst The Mandarin held him hostage. Once Stark, along with Yin
Seng, had finished inventing the armour, he used it to escape from The Mandarin he then used it to fight evil and used
his engineering skills to put his fathers memory to rest.

again, and attempting to take his life. After attacking Hammer on his own property, Iron Man injured his chest after
taking a direct hit from a missile. He upgraded his armour in order to attempt to heal his chest. In an attempt to
end Justinís threat on his life, Tony faked his own death, to trick Hammer. It worked, but at a dear price.
