Former Avengers butler Edwin Jarvis learns of some disturbing news happening in New York City when his mother's TV breaks, so he leaves to find her a repairman. It appears every set in the city has broke, and so does the subway, whose passengers are calmly lead to safety by Jarvis: he's rightfully thanked by a Glory Garsen. Walking by the Daily Bugle, he saves two people from falling debris with a little help from some familiar lad. After watching 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit?' in a theater, he comes upon a rogue phone, which he subsequently uses to call some shadowed character for help, who has some problems of his own with the answering machine. Near Brooklyn Bridge, Jarvis awaits his contact when another emergency surfaces: after saving miss Garsen again, a giant robot appears and is about to crush Jarvis when, in the nick of time, his cloaked friend arrives to save the day.
