Re: The villain(s) of IM4 thread
If Iron Man fought the Living Laser, they could also have Bethany Cabe in there as Tony's girlfriend if Gwyneth Paltrow doesn't come back. They can conflate the whole Bethany Cabe story where she goes looking for her husband which leads her to her capture in Germany. Tony can follow, using his stealth armour (the first time it was used in the comics) and later gets captured too, where he awakens to find the Living Laser holding him captive and does battle with him.
If they wanted to bring Rhodey in there too, they can always combine that story with Iron Man #211 where the Living Laser fights BOTH Iron Men and they end up flying at him from both sides and sealing him in this giant spherical mirror.
