Iron Man 2: Forewarned is Four-Armed! is a comic that was part of a magazine which came with a Saturday edition of Daily Mirror.


At one of Stark's warehouses, Doctor Octopus is trying to steal the Gamma Flux Detector. But he gets caught by Iron Man who tries to stop him. While fighting Dr. Octopus, Iron Man gets a call from a clearly upset Tiffany because of a picture of Tony Stark and Halle Berry in a Variety magazine. Trying to free himself from Dr. Octopus's claws, Iron Man explains that Berry is just a friend. He then receives another call from Dan Reynolds, who is in a meeting with Mr. Mottomo about the water purification plants in his country. With Stark's absence at the meeting, Mr. Mottomo is losing patients.

Iron Man tries to calms thing down with Mr. Mottomo and Tiffany but is attacked by a swarm of Octo-Drones. This results in a system failure and he is forced to the ground. Using a magnetic repulsion field, he is able to get the drones of his suit and his systems reboot. However he is still not able to take Dr. Octopus down, due to a force field that stops Iron Man's energy beams. Back on the phone with Tiffany, Iron Man gets the idea to freeze Dr. Octopus, using the cooling system of the warehouse. The force field doesn't protect Dr. Octopus from the cold and Iron Man is able to defeat him. He calls Mr. Mottomo back and offers to reduce the construction prizes with 50%. Surprised by this generous offer, Mr. Mottomo accepts.

Not seeing how they are able to afford this, Reynolds objects at first but Stark states that he will cut construction time in half while looking at one of Dr. Octopus's claws. Iron Man then flies off, pulling a defeated Dr. Octopus with him and arranges a date with Tiffany.
