So Happy finally learns the truth. It's about time, but more than that, it's a very nice move, and it finally gives Happy the chance of doing something heroic. He stops that snooty countess, gets the magical USB-Stick from her back and even runs onto the battlefield to give it to Iron Man, getting blasted in the process. Now Iron Man is at full power, Titanium Man recharged himself as well, and Happy is near death...this is going to be a big showdown!

As for Cap, well...I'm a bit baffled at the end. If they already have these missiles ready and aimed at Downing Street...why didn't they fire them before? They want a good propaganda-victory? I think killing Churchill in the heart of London would be a gigantic one! Also, by tying Cap onto the rocket, you might be able to kill him, but as long as he's conscious, he can alter the route of the rocket. In fact, he even does it while being unconscious, seeing his weight and not aerodynamic body destroying every prediction about the flightpath.

Well, my reservations about the cartoony ending aside, the story itself is also not as good. We have the classic formula: A male person, working for the bad guys either because of a girl, or, in this case, for his own selfish reasons, and a female person, begging him to stop. The guy doesn't hold her back, because she will see the light/will like the result/is just a silly female, and the girl can't really do anything besides telling the heroes something or throwing herself into the line of fire. The guy sees the girl wounded or killed and has a change of heart, somewhat redeeming himself. Been there, done that, and it's boring and predictable as heck.

A solid issue, mostly for the great changes with Iron Man.
