While out selling one of his newer weapons models, Tony Stark and his envoy is attacked, and he's taken prisoner where he has to design and build weapons for a terrorist organization, only being able to be freed with the help of a fellow scientist that forces Tony to change, and see the damage that his weapons have done on people. From there he builds a suit of armor that acts as a defense, and a weapon itself.
