In the late 1990s, the Iron Man cartoon is what made me a comic fan, a fan of heroes in general. It was a series that, while for kids, was about invention, about using your mind and your knowledge to fix a problem and save the world. It is why I have been a die-hard Iron Man fan for the entirety of my nerdy little existence.

I am infinitely pleased to say that THIS is the kind of Iron Man comic I’ve been waiting for since Ellis left the book all those years back. Fraction and Larroca have put together a book about the future, about technology, about the very things Tony Stark needs to be in the modern world.

This entire Fraction/Larroca run has been excellent, but I almost felt like Stark Disassembled was a step backwards into the past, while Stark Resilient has, in this double-sized issue, established itself as a blast forwards into the future. Great guest appearances by Marvel heavies helped tie in the implications of Disassembled and Siege together while moving towards something sleeker and cleaner, just like the fantastic new armor debuted here.

Can’t recommend it enough. Loved every page.
