Iron Man is contacted telepathically by Drax the Destroyer, warning him of the Blood Brothers coming to Earth! Unfortunately, the warning comes too late and Iron Man is captured. Returning him to Titan, Iron Man's armor allows for Drax to be freed from his prison cell. Learning about the history of Titan and Thanos, Iron Man and Drax are confronted by a robotic duplicate of Thanos who activates a self-destruct mechanism on Thanos' fortress! Can Drax and Iron Man escape in time?
