Synopsis: Billionaire weapons manufacturer and socialite Anthony Edward 'Tony' Stark takes a business trip to Vietnam in order to assist the war effort by unveiling new technologies to the U.S. Forces. Unfortunately, an explosion leaves Stark fatally injured and in the hands of the tyrant Wong-Chu, who forces Tony to spend his last days building weapons for his enemy.
While in captivity the dying Tony meets famed Chinese Dr. Ho Yinsen, and the two begin working on an iron suit that will not only extend Tony's life, but also perform amazing feats of power. Thus, Tony is reborn as the Iron Man, the near-invincible hero with one key weakness -- his failing heart.

Review: This a somewhat challenging review to write the main reason being is that its hard to find faults with this comic i guess one small fault i could give is that at times the art is quite dull and it could be brightened up a bit. Now we've got that out the way we can move onto the good stuff the writing in this comic is unusual yet superb the writer describes Tony Stark how Times magazine would describe their billionaire of the year which i thought was a really nice touch and rarely seen in a comic. This is the first time i have ever read this comic so i was surprised to find how true to the comic that the film is even with the look of the mark 1 suit, although the suit we know today is a much much different suit, the original suits greatest ability was the ultra high tech suction pads on his hands to be able to grab the ceiling and hide from his villains . While this isn't the most action packed nor the longest its still a great read a manages to mix intelligent humour with a serious plot, A great read definitely one to pick up.
