I.R.O.N., the International Robotic Operations Network, was a corporation founded by Garrison Kreiger. While a seemingly legitimate business on the surface, I.R.O.N. is used as a front for its founder's sinister machinations.

However, Kreiger was still alive, using I.R.O.N.'s resources in secret. While still at the British Secret Intelligence Service, Mercy Gale had the Talisman moved to an S.I.S.-run I.R.O.N. facility in the country of Schleteva.

Several groups responded to Blackrock's actions: S.I.S. deployed Action Man Programme personnel Ian Noble and Kup to defend the facility; Baron Ironblood sent Major Bludd and the Oktober Guard to retrieve the Talisman; a G.I.
