This is the 12th episode of Iron Man: Armored Adventures. Written by Christopher Yost.
Rhodey becomes concerned over Tony's plans to increasingly weaponize the Iron Man Armor using reverse-engineered supervillain tech. Obadiah Stane offers to bail out Project Pegasus in return for the Crimson Dynamo Armor which is upgraded to capture Iron Man, resulting in a pitched battle in the middle of the city that leaves Stane furious at the reckless endangerment of innocent lives. Having lost the battle and fallen unconscious, Iron Man is brought to Project Pegasus. Harchov and Stane then begin to analyze the armor. With the help of Rhodey and Pepper, Tony manages to escape, only to return in the Dynamo Buster Armor. He then uses a virus called Technovore to destroy Pegasus's advanced AI Delphi, both to defeat the Dynamo and prevent Stane from acquiring detailed technical data on Iron Man. Tony is excited that he finally defeated one of his enemies, saying that what they need to win is better weapons, better tech, and to stay ahead. Rhodey, on the other hand, reminds Tony that there is a line between good and evil, and that he just came close to crossing it. Though successful, there is an unexpected consequence, back at Project Pegasus, having consumed all available data, the Technovore is close to burning itself out just as Tony planned. But unknown to Tony, one of Pegasus' projects were computer-controlled nanobots. Using the connection, Technovore takes control of the nanobots, abandoning the computer. It forms a body and says one word, "Consume".
