This battle pits Iron Man’s repulsor ray against Mandarin’s impact beam. The goal is to push the beam back toward Mandarin by hitting ramps and orbits, and you have a limited amount of time to get the job done. If time runs out, you’re out of luck and the process must be completed again. But if you succeed, Iron Man’s beam hits Mandarin, causing an explosion that knocks the villain out! Mission complete! When you manage to defeat both Whiplash and Mandarin, Ultimo rises from the center of the table and unleashes serious fury. We don’t want any spoilers here, you’ll have to find out for yourself how to defeat him.
