** He appears too (alongside War Machine once again) in an episode of the then-latest ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibleHulk'' cartoon. The Hulk himself appears in an episode of this show as he teams up with Iron Man to stop The Leader from going back to the past to take Bruce Banner's place in the gamma bomb explosion that created the Hulk.

The episode in question is something of a SequelEpisode to "Hulkbuster", with Tony and Bruce Banner already being friends and being a SecretKeeper for the other.

* BittersweetEnding: Several Season 2 episodes.
** "The Beast Within": The Mandarin's team is arrested and the dragons' plan is foiled, but Tony's actions cause half of Force Works and the remaining members to still give him grief. Also, viewers learn that the Mandarin is NotQuiteDead.
** "Fire and Rain": Firebrand is arrested, but Rhodey is left shaken and gives up being War Machine.
** "Cell of Iron": Arthur Dearborn sacrifices his life and dream to save millions of people.
** "Not Far From the Tree": AIM's plot to take over Stark Enterprises fails, but the clone of Walter Stark escapes and intends to revisit his "son" when he's feeling most vulnerable.
** "Beauty Knows No Pain": Madame Masque is stopped, but Tony and Julia are left feeling sorry for her, as well as reflecting on Tony's own lonely life.



* DisproportionateRetribution: The Hacker used Ultimo to attack Stark Enterprises because they turned down his job applications, saying such things as "Please re-apply after college."



* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: In the "Armor Wars" two-parter, Tony starts out by simply attacking villains using armor--stopping them in the middle of crimes and demonstrating that they were using technology stolen from him. However, he quickly becomes more obsessive and starts going after good guys that wear armor, such as Stingray and even War Machine. All the while, Iron Man is condemned as a menace, while Julia and Rhodey denounce him, Nearly getting killed by Justin Hammer's new weapon, though, knocks some sense into him and causes him to clean up his act.



* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: During "Iron Man, on the Inside," Hawkeye suffers a paralyzing, most likely fatal injury while fighting Ultimo. Iron Man (possibly feeling guilty over their falling out) is particularly hard on himself, but Julia insists that it was an accident.

to:

* MomentKiller: In "Distant Boundaries," H.O.M.E.R. and later Rhodey do this to Tony and Julia.
-->'''H.O.M.E.R.:''' Are we doing facial inspections?\\
'''Tony:''' ''[beat]'' That's right.

* OnlySaneMan: Among the Mandarin's usual lackeys, Hypnotia consistently came across as the only one that wasn't an idiot. She also proved to be quite powerful with her hypnotic abilities in various occasions, from hypnotizing an entire village for 24 hours to using delayed-action hypnotism in a video recording.

* WeWillMeetAgain: The Crimson Dynamo promises this to Iron Man in "Not Far From the Tree." They meet again in the first part of "Armor Wars," and it's a complete disaster.

* InNameOnly: The Scarlet Witch seen here bares no similarities with the comic book character except having the first name Wanda (in the cartoon she's Wanda ''Frank'' rather than Maximoff), and having a vaguely Eastern European accent. Personality-wise, she's quick to anger, mancrazy, [[CloudCuckooLander more than a little weird]], has the hots for Tony, and sees Jessica as her romantic rival for his affections. In the comics she's level-headed ([[ComicBook/HouseOfM normally]]) and has led the Avengers before, and she counts Tony and Jessica among her closest friends. Power-wise, instead of [[WindsOfDestinyChange probability manipulation]], her abilities are vaguely-defined but seem to be explicitly magical, including tarot-reading, shapeshifting, and altering matter. Even her costume is based on a very brief period in the comics where she experimented with short hair, rather her more recognizable long hair and tiara. And zero references are made to her [[ComicBook/{{Magneto}} father]] or [[ComicBook/{{Quicksilver}} twin brother]].

* AngerBornOfWorry: Twice in Season 2. In "The Beast Within", Iron Man fakes his death by the Mandarin's hands, leading the rest of the team without their leader and do battle with Fing Fang Foom and the other dragons without him. Just as they seem to be losing, Iron Man appears out of the sky, and teams up with the Mandarin to stop the dragons. The scene has War Machine sound overjoyed at his best friend's survival, but in literally the scene, Rhodey knocks Tony to the ground and chews him out for not having enough trust in the team to let them know he's alive. This is actually what led to Force Works disbanding.
** During the "Armor Wars" two-parter, After Stark discovers that his designs that been stolen, he goes on a crusade to disable the armored heroes and villains using his technology to keep them falling into the wrong hands. It gets to the point that he "fires" Iron Man as Stark Industries can't associate with a CorporateSamurai gone rogue, and acts more rashly - while shutting out his friends and allies, even attacking one of them. Julia goes out her way to call him out on the crap he's pulled over the years - not just recently, and when he fakes his death again but lets Julia and Rhodey know he's alive, the former goes through the emotional ringer - first in grief to Tony'ss "death", then elation, and later takes Tony to task again for his recklessness and selfish actions, and makes it very clear to him that he hurt both Rhodey and herself in his paranoia over the stolen Stark tech, even if he hadn't set out to do so.

*TheGentlemanOrTheScoundrel: The Dreadknight (Gentleman) and Blacklash (Scoundrel) compete for Hypnotia's affections



* GrandFinale: Season two's "Hands of the Mandarin" two-parter, where Mandarin--having finally collected all of his Ten Rings--launches a scheme to make all of the planet's technology useless, which would make his arch-enemy Iron Man ineffective against him. As Mandarin reforms his team of super villains, Iron Man reforms his superhero team and develops new armor to negate Mandarin's anti-technology, and a final confrontation between the two ends in [[spoiler:Mandarin's death]].
