Iron Man #177
Issue(s): Iron Man #177
...and taking a job protecting a man named Regis Fuskey, who has to travel to South America.
Turns out that Fuskey's job is to find out if a group of rebels have any outside contacts. And he's attacked by the Flying Tiger, who Iron Man is able to repel (after a tough fight complicated by the fact that the Tiger initially takes Rhodes' suitcase with his armor in it).
And the Tiger is working for General Coy, the uncle of the New Mutant Karma...
...which proves that the rebels do indeed have outside support. Iron Man gets $20,000 for the job...
...enough to start the business with the Erwins. But he starts getting the headaches that will plague him throughout his time as Iron Man.
Meanwhile, Tony Stark is brought into the hospital and detoxed. The doctor says it's up to him whether or not he goes back to drinking, and then kicks him out.
Not exactly demonstrating a good understanding of alcoholism there, doc.
