The golden Avenger, Iron Man (also known as Tony Stark) is one of the oldest and most important Marvel Comics characters. With all the recent attention with the hyper-successful movie franchise, we thought it would be a good time to review the history of Iron Man through some of our favorite stories.
Iron Man: the Character
Iron Man first appeared in the pages of Tales of Suspense #39 in 1963, created by Stan Lee, Larry Lieber, Jack Kirby and Don Heck, he's the wealthy industrialist Tony Stark A founding member of the Avengers, Iron Man has become one of the biggest players in the Marvel Universe, especially in the past 5 years after the outcome of Civil War.
Iron Man: Demon In a Bottle
The classic story of Tony Stark's battle against alcoholism, Demon In a Bottle. Published in 1978 with art by John Romita Jr. and Bob Layton, Demon in a Bottle tells the tale of Iron Man, his double life as playboy Tony Stark and the dangers of alcohol and provides for some very amusing Bronze Age comics fun.
Iron Man: Armor Wars
One of the stories that influenced the movie, Iron Man 2, is Iron Man: Armor Wars. Told in the mid-1980s, Tony Stark deals with the fact that his technology has been stolen and armored villains are popping up everywhere, forcing Tony back into the lab to forge a NEW Iron Man suit.
Invincible Iron Man
More recently, after the first Iron Man movie was released, Matt Fraction and Salvador Larocca's run on Invincible Iron Man has defined Tony Stark in the 21st century. Collected in one omnibus edition, it's the perfect book for a new Iron Man reader
Iron Man, the Movies
Directed by Jon Favreau and starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwenyth Paltrow, Samuel L. Jackson, and now Don Cheadle, Iron Man has jumped from the comic book to the movie screen to become one of the biggest movies of all time.
