Tony Stark vs. Norman Osborn

Although it doesn’t say it on the cover (shockingly), this is a Dark Reign tie-in.

This showdown is a long time coming, stretching back to the Civil War crossover, where Stark brainwashed/drugged/manipulated Osborn and had him go on a killing spree dressed as the Green Goblin. It wasn’t one of Stark’s finer moments.

Fast forward past the Skrull Invasion crossover: Osborn is in as head of SHIELD HAMMER and Stark is out.

“Tony, how about those super-secret superhero i

The American public can be so unforgiving. Poor Tony Stark just had one little alien Secret Invasion happen on his watch as SHIELD’s director, and he gets fired. Then Norman Osborn takes over as head of keeping the super humans in line because you might as well put a ‘reformed’ super villain in charge. It worked so well with Dick Cheney after all.

So Tony is out of SHIELD, his company is imploding thanks to the failures of Stark tech due to a computer virus during the invasion, and half the super

I've never read Dark Reign so some info I had to work through. Some of this volume was fun. Some boring.

So, I guess Maria Hill is officially brunette now. Guess it only took the Dark Reign to figure that out. Surprise, this intro’s like, “Skrulls invaded.” Wait, what, when the hell did that happen?

Also, Osborn kicked Stark out of S.H.I.E.L.D. directorship and now has a man-hunt on for Iron Man because Tony has the superhuman registry database that Osborn wants access to... for nothing good, rest assured. Meanwhile, Pepper becomes a real girl with her own suit (Rescue doesn’t have any offensive we

I have never been a big Tony Stark fan. Some good stuff has been done. Some interesting stuff has come and gone. Yet Tony has been part of some great stories.

This story line following the Civil War stuff has been fun.
Pepper Potts is one of the better side-characters in the Marvel Universe.
Pepper in an Iron Man suit is perfect.

What do you do at the end of Secret Invasion when Norman Osborn (formerly the Green Goblin and still a total psychopath) gets control of the defense of the United States of America? If you're Tony Stark, you run like hell (because Normal wants your head on a platter), and if you're Pepper Potts and Maria Hill, you get pulled into helping.

Fraction continues his stellar run on Invincible Iron Man with the "World's Most Wanted" arc. WMW is tied as my favorite comic arc of all time, the other choice

"Well. No turning back now."

An intense journey through dark terrain, The Invincible Iron Man, Volume 2: World's Most Wanted, Book 1 shows the real brilliance of Tony Stark and his world.

There was never a moment when I was not on the edge of my seat. I was flipping through the pages faster than I even realized, completely engrossed. The artwork is stunning, the dialogue is sharp, the charact

Yes. Just, yes. This 2nd volume takes place after Zeke Stane's attack on Stark, and right after the Secret Invasion, which places Norman Osborn in charge of SHIELD and Tony out of power and public enemy #1. Pepper Potts is in for a whole new life, Maria Hill is on the run as well, and even War Machine can't help Tony. But Tony may have a crazy idea that could just save the day...but it won't happen overnight. Also featuring a Namor appearance...

I pretty much stopped reading the big Marvel events after Civil War (mostly as I couldn't afford to keep up), so Secret Invasion and Dark Reign mostly passed me by (which is odd given how Norman Osborn centric Dark Reign is - there was very little knock on effect in the Spider-Man books from what I recall). Anyway, the second volume of Matt Fraction's run assumes you know what occurred in Secret Invasion (thankfully there's a handy primer at the start to bring you up to speed) and kicks straight ...more

This was weak on so many grounds. For one thing, I did not appreciate the opening, which recaps events of volume 1 but adds, "and by the way, aliens happened and SHIELD was basically dissolved and now Tony Stark's ruined." I realise all that must have happened in a different series, but come on, comics...

That aside, I didn't find much else to enjoy in this volume. The plot lurches along a slow central thread, with staccato events like Maria Hill's discovery inside FuturePharm. That felt like an

"How he got started in comics: In 1983, when Fraction was 7 years old and growing up in Kansas City, Mo., he became fascinated by the U.S. invasion of Grenada and created his own newspaper to explain the event. "I've always been story-driven, telling stories with pictures and words," he said.

Education and first job: Fraction never graduated from college. He stopped half a semester short of an art
