The Nightmares of Iron Man

Dr Alex Tang

 
 

There have been numerous comic stories about Iron Man since the phenomenon success of the Iron Man movie. Previous Iron Man stories are good such as The Armour Wars and Demon in a Bottle. However the newer stories are better. Unlike other superheroes, Iron Man is a highly sophisticated suit. These means than anyone may steal, duplicate or improve on its technologies. The man inside the suit is also important These leads to the 5 nightmares Tony Stark has:

#1:That he get drunk.Tony Stark is a recovered alcoholic. These means that he is always in danger of becoming one again. The stress of being Iron Man and being the Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. may yet drive him off the edge.

#2: That Iron Man technology become cheaper and easily duplicable. This means that anyone may have their own Iron Man suit.

#3: That someone other than Tony Stark and Rhodes (Warmachine) start piloting Iron Man. A powerful weapon like that in the wrong hands may be castrotrophic.

#4: That Iron Man becomes disposable. Cheap and replaceable like a cell phone.

#5: That someone who is smarter than Stark will come along and make better Iron Man armours.

In this graphic novel which collects Invincible Iron Man #1-7 shows how Tony Stark's nightmares came true - in the form of Ezekiel Stane, the son of Obadiah Stane. As all true blue Iron Man movie goer will know, Obadiah Stane was Tony's former partner and enemy who was killed in the movie. Ezekiel is younger and smarter than Tony Stark. This story was written by Matt Fraction and illustrated by Salvador Larocca.

A truly enjoyable read and beautiful illustrations.

'Nuff said!
