Nightmare Fuel: Fear Itself
The fate of Paris. Grey Gargoyle, one of Iron Man's old foes, is upgraded into Mokk, Breaker of Faith. He uses his supercharged powers to turn essentially everyone in Paris into stone... and then starts crushing them. When he fights Iron Man, the fight keeps shattering more and more people. Keep in mind that Gargoyle's powers have proven to be reversible, so Stark feels the pressure to defeat Mokk quickly, but... It's enough to cause Iron Man to start drinking again.
