Tony Stark is known throughout the world as many things: billionaire, inventor, Avenger. But mainly for being the invincible Iron Man.
Just when Tony is about to add his pizzazz to an international ecosummit in Ireland, someone close to him forces him to question his role in making the world a more dangerous place with his high-tech weaponry. But Stark doesn't have much time to reflect before an old enemy presents him with an even greater challenge: the assassination of all the ecoministers...and Iron Man himself. Just how invincible Iron Man is when he is stripped of everything remains to be seen in this breathless adventure by the best-selling author of Artemis Fowl.
This book had equally excellent performance and storyline. My boys put this in their top 10 reads of the year which say a lot.
Any additional comments?
This was a great Iron Man story, especially considering how short it was. As others have said, it's the story that the third Iron Man movie should have been. It's also pleasantly distinct from various other Marvel book productions which try to pass off a young adult novel as a superhero story. This book does have a teen sidekick, but she does not get disproportionate focus or upstage Tony Stark.
As someone previously said, this would have been a much better storyline for Ironman 3. The movie made The Mandarin into a weenie.
They should have brought in War Machine into the fight at the end.
take note Shane Black. this is how an iron man story is told. this should have been the story we got for iron-man 3.
