Synopsis for “The MODOK Machine!”
Iron Man leaves Avengers Mansion to use his new training room at Stark International. In Vietnam, Colonel Sin-Li places Crimson Dynamo, Titanium Man, and Radioactive Man under house arrest. At AIM headquarters, Black Lama invites MODOK to the battle for the Golden Globe. Previously briefed by his agents, MODOK immediately accepts, killing an agent for questioning his decision. At his hidden domain, Black Lama suffers hallucinations. A vision of Marianne Rodgers informs the Mad Thinker that a meteorite will strike the prison he is in, allowing him to escape. Firebrand escapes too. As the Thinker enters his nearby hideout. Firebrand visits his sister Roxanne, who calls Tony Stark to inform him. The Thinker takes control of Iron Man’s armor steering him to fight MODOK, who dons a giant battle suit. Learning that the Thinker, not the Lama, sent Iron Man, MODOK grabs his foe, traces the armor control and brings the fight to the Thinker’s hideout.
