However, Stark decided to solve the situation himself in order to save human lives, where a group of insurgents attacked an air base killing several members United Nations peacekeeping troops.
Flying at supersonic speed to arrive before any official military response, Iron Man engaged the insurgents, being able to withstand their attacks thanks to his armor and retaliating with his own weapons to kill every terrorist. Stark then checked the status of a news crew whose work in the area warned Stark of the situation, as the journalists already knew Stark's M.O. to act in this kind of situation. The footage of Iron Man's intervention was sent to Stark Industries PR department.
Within the United States Navy SEALs, Erik Stevens was eventually recruited to the Joint Special Operations Command ghost unit. The unit had several missions in Iraq where Stevens managed to eliminate multiple enemies.

However, the four ended up killing innocent civilians in public, with footage of the killings being recorded and uploaded to YouTube.
