Ever since I started reading comics, Iron Man has been my favorite Marvel character. Unfortunately, since the 1980s, good Iron Man stories have been few and far between. Joe Quesada's Iron Man: The Mask in the Iron Man tale was the last Iron Man storyline that I really enjoyed, and that one is already several years gone.

Enter Warren Ellis, Adi Granov, and Extremis - the volume you're checking out right now. Extremis is the best Iron Man story to come along in ages. Essentially, this story was as close to a big budget Iron Man movie as I ever thought we'd see (before the excellent Iron Man (Single-Disc Edition) movie with Robert Downey Jr. of course). It's absolutely breathtaking.

Warren Ellis, whose work on Stormwatch, the Authority, and Planetary I credit with changing the way I look at comic books, delivers the perfect Iron Man story. Marvel continuity has not been kind to Iron Man, so Ellis takes this opportunity to reintroduce the character and start almost from scratch. We're introduced to a Tony Stark who is haunted by the harm his military inventions have caused and is trying to make amends in the only way he knows how - by donning the Iron Man suit. There's a nice recap of his origin, adapted slightly to modernize the character, an interesting look at Tony's fellow "mad scientists", and confrontation with an extremely powerful villain who forces Tony to make a drastic decision. I won't give it away here, but it had major implications for the character in future storylines. Ellis was firing on all cylinders here. The plot, characters, dialogue, and pacing are all flawless.

My first Kindle-format graphic novel. Incredibly well-done; easy to turn the pages, easy to "pop out" each panel which enlarges it so it is easy to read the text and admire the art. Loved the art, loved the story-line. It helped fill in some comic canon that I didn't know, since I've approached the Marvel universe as an adult from the movie side and want to understand the comics' backstory. A fantastic companion to "Iron Man 3"; if you loved the movie, you'll probably enjoy the graphic novel. Need to repeat just how impressed I was by how well this was formatted for a Kindle reader (I used my reader app on my iPad 2)--I think I got a lot more out of it than I do a regular, paper-bound graphic novel.

One of my favorite characters in the Marvel Comics universe is Iron Man. Even before the recent films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as it's called, were released, I really liked the character from the cartoons I watched in the '90's when I was younger. Since I have recently decided to read more Marvel Comics stories, I chose to give Iron Man a try.

I chose The Invincible Iron Man: Extremis as the one to read due to the fact that it is a basis for the third Iron Man film, which is a loose adaptation of the comic. Very loose in some areas, of course. It is, after all, a completely different universe from the main continuity in Marvel, called the 616-Universe, so some differences are to be expected.

Anyways, to summarize the story: a rogue scientist sold a sample of a super-human serum to some domestic terrorist, who is now on a super-powered rampage. When one of the developers of the serum, Maya Hansen, calls in Tony for help from his Iron Man "bodyguard" (the cover story at this time in the comics), he of course obliges to help a colleague and old flame.

What occurs next is a battle where the bad guy absolutely crushes Tony and very nearly kills him. This necessitate Tony to make a big gamble to try to beat him. The risks of his plan are high, and the result will be Iron Man winning and saving the day, or Tony Stark dying.

I said before that the third Iron Man film was a loose adaptation of this story, but arguably all three eponymous films so far, and some of the scenes in The Avengers adapt this story. Back in 2005 when this was released, it included references to past events and to Tony's origin as Iron Man. In other words, it was a subtle reboot of Iron Man for the current age.

As others have said, this is definitely one of the better Iron Man stories, and it certainly won't disappoint fans new or old. My one complaint is that it seemed to move a little fast. Obviously that's the nature of comics, but I could have stood for a little slower pace. Maybe that's just me.

Overall I enjoyed this book. I'm not really an Iron Man fan but upon reading other reviews about this item I decided to check it out (plus it was on sale). It's worth a read in my opinion and also the artwork was good.

This book is especially wonderful for everybody who loves the Iron Man films since some of the events from this book were used as inspirations for the first movie.

The quality of Adi Granovs drawings that he himself also colored is outstanding.

On top of that the story is also very well written.

So this book reads good: writing wise, and art wise.
A must have for all Iron Man fans!
