powers to mystically remove the bullet from Brian’s brain, releasing him
from Phillip’s control.

Iron Man attempts to fight Kraken, but his men torture Krissy and
Abe, forcing him to back down. Kraken takes Iron Man on a tour of his
hideout, showing off his collection of captured seamen and military
weapons retrieved from their ships. He forces Iron Man to remove his
armor and change into a spare set of clothes, revealing that he’s
actually Tony Stark. Kraken threatens to start World War III with the
weapons he’s stolen, unless Stark uses his factories to build more
weapons for Kraken. Before he can refuse, Stark is tranquilized and
dumped in Golant, England, where he asks around to see if anyone knows
about the nearby sea caves. He’s eventually sent to shopkeeper Martin
Maroon who points out the distinctive mud on the boots Stark is wearing.
Trekking to the cave Martin says the mud is from, Stark finds Kraken’s
hideout. He makes his way inside and retrieves his armor. After
recharging he attacks and defeats Kraken, but the hideout is damaged in
the fight and fills with water. Iron Man gets the captives outside but
leaves Kraken to his fate. Later, Stark, Abe, and Krissy have drinks in
Golant, not noticing the bartender looks alarmingly like Kraken.
