Even with the reveal that a major villain had used her facility, Sunset Bain explained to her board that it was actually a great way to show off the site's capabilities! By TONY STARK: IRON MAN #15 Arno had figured out to copy his father's engram, digitally encoded personality, and memory files that Tony had integrated into eScape. In that same issue, Jocasta approached Arno about helping her enhance her humanity. The actual operation got interrupted in issue #16, though, when Ultron Pym busted in and kidnapped Jocasta. That gave him enough time and experience to bring Howard and Maria Stark back to life based on their engrams.
In the wake of "The Ultron Agenda" (in issues #16-19), Baintronics schemed its way into taking over Stark Unlimited, which was made all the easier by Tony Stark running off to parts unknown, having convinced himself that he wasn't the real deal! With both companies behind him, Arno dedicated all those resources to recreating his brother's God-Killer Armor, referring to it as the Iron Man of 2020.
On New Year's Eve, Arno donned the armor and flew off into the sky dedicating himself to saving all life on Earth leading directly in to IRON MAN 2020 and many of it's tie-ins! Now he finds himself dealing with threats like the A.I. Army led by Machine Man.
Tony Stark, now considering himself an A.I., joined the A.I. Army as Mark One, wearing a version of his original suit. To cover his tracks even further, Mark made it seem as though Tony Stark had started drinking again, which understandably worried his friends. Mark One and Arno finally met at the end of IRON MAN 2020 #2, but the actual battle will take place in ish #3!
