Tony Stark, aka Iron Man is a member of a select club of superheroes that includes Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and Spider-Man: heroes who have been consistently published in their own book since their creation. In Tony's case, this is his 46th year of continuous publication through four different volumes. Not bad, really; the character has usually occupied a middle-to-low position on the sales charts, but consistency outstrips flashes in the pan. However, some have commented that, for all his history, there aren't a great many 'essential' Iron Man stories. Several of those stories that are generally agreed upon, however, come from the two periods when David Michelinie and Bob Layton were handling his comic, the first run in the late 70s/early 80s, and the second in the late 80s. This collection, released to coincide with the "Iron Man" feature film, has stories from both eras, which form the first two parts of what would eventually become a trilogy of stories pitting Iron Man against Doctor Doom (the third leg, "Legacy of Doom", is being released as we speak as a four-part miniseries, nearly 30 years after the original).

Doctor Doom is frequently held up as being Marvel's greatest villain (I myself favour Magneto, but perhaps Doom is a superior pure villain), and these stories pit him against Iron Man in a battle of the men wearing suits of powered armour. The first story, a two-parter featured in issues 149-150, see Iron Man and Doctor Doom sent back in time to the days of Camelot by one of Doom's opportunistic minions. There they form alliances with King Arthur and his evil sister Morgan le Fay, respectively; Doom planned the trip in order to enlist Morgan's aide in freeing his mother's soul from Hell.

What I like about Dr. Doom is that he's one of the few villains in comics who can fight any hero, and it never feels out of place, unlike, for example, the Joker, who rarely ventures outside of Gotham City. Anyway, here Doom acquires equipment from Stark International he plans to use on a time machine that will send him back to the days of King Arthur, so that Morgana La Fay can aid Doom in his annual attempts to free his mother's soul from Hell. Long story short, Iron Man (Tony Stark) travels to Latveria to take back his equipment, and in the ensuing fight, they both get sent back to Camelot, with no way of returning. Doom agrees to aid Morgana La Fay in her quest to kill King Arthur in exchange for her tutelage in the ways of magic, and Iron Man agrees to help Arthur defeat Doom and La Fay. The overall story, taking place in Iron Man #149-150, is relatively short, but exciting, and filled with lots of great character moments for both Doom and Iron Man.

Reading this, I'm surprised Iron Man hasn't fought Dr. Doom more often. They are natural arch-enemies. I'll even go as far as to say Doom makes a better opponent for Iron Man than he does Reed Richards.

Iron Man and Doom's conflict is only briefly in the present day. The first story (Iron Man #149-150) puts them in the time of Camelot, where Iron Man joins with King Arthur while Doom joins forces with Morgan Le Fey. The second story (Iron Man #249-250) is a sequel that sends them to the future, to help a reborn King Arthur.

What's especially nice is each story is told in only two issues. If told today, they would each be six-issue "events".

My only disappointment in this collection is the lack of extras. Given that this collects only four issues, I was expecting a few pages of extras, sketches, etc. The only extra is the cover of the TPB edition from 10 years ago.
