Format: Hardcover
19 issues in a nice hardcover. There's basically two story arcs here. The first seven issues take place before Secret Invasion where Stark's tech gets out into the hands of terrorists. It's about his fears that the Iron Man tech gets used for evil and the sacrifices he makes to stop it. It reminds me a bit of an early Authority story.

The next 12 issues are post-SI, with Stark being kicked out of S.H.I.E.L.D. (S.H.I.E.L.D. itself becoming H.A.M.M.E.R.) and being replaced by Osborn. Stark has all the important security info stored in his brain, which he has to erase so Osborn doesn't get his hands on it. It's a story about the world's richest man on the run, going from hideout to hideout and scavenging tech, all the while slowly losing his mind, his memories, and his abilities to function. There's a cool parallel with Stark's devolving mind and him using progressively more simple Iron Man suits, eventually completely loosing his mind as he makes his way to the original gray Iron Man mk I suit. I liked this second arc better.

There's also two stories going on at the same time. One is of Pepper Potts learning to use Rescue, a defensive only Iron Man suit. The other is a spy story featuring Maria Hill as she tries to get some info to Capt. America and that eventually involves Black Widow.

The only thing I don't like about this volume is the coloring. It looks airbrushed and, especially early on, gives everything an unnatural sheen. It gets mellowed out by the end.

Matt Fraction creates an Invincible Iron Man. This 'Omnibus' contains the first 19 comics/volumes 1-3 of the books. I've read a handful of other Iron Man stories, but I think I enjoyed this most of all. This book contains three stories. The first story is about Tony Stark and his function as Iron Man and the director S.H.I.E.L.D.. A low-yield nuclear bomb goes off in Africa, only come to find evidence the bomb was made by stark industries. Tony takes on his nightmares by fighting a stronger, faster, and more advanced Ezekial Stane. The outcome of all evil also changes the life of Pepper Potts forever! The rest of the book contains The Worlds Most Wanted series, parts 1&2. After the Skrull invasion, Tony finds himself literally picking up the pieces of what used to be Stark Industries. After being cast out of S.H.I.E.L.D., Tony is now a fugitive, being hunted down by Norman Osborn, Commander of H.A.M.M.E.R.. Tony knows what information Osborn wants. Although the only place this information exists is in a secret stark file which is being delivered to Captain America by Black Widow, and the rest is steadily being erased from the back of Tony's mind, personally! Thankfully both Tony and Iron Man have friends in high places! This series is near perfection, in both aspects of storyline and illustration. A great buy and plan to continue the series with the second 'omnibus'. I give Invincible Iron Man 4.8/5 stars.

Title: Invincible Iron Man Omnibus Volume 1
Publisher: Marvel
Writer: Matt Fraction
Artists: Salvador Larroca (pencils, inks) Frank D'Armata & Stephane Peru (colors), Salvador Larroca (covers)
Collects: Invincible Iron Man #1-19
Price: $39.99

At the time of this writing, it's been almost two years since this book has been published. I've read it through a couple of times and lent it to a couple of friends. My friends and I all enjoyed it very much. With the Secret Invasion event coming to a close and a new Iron Man movie coming up on the horizon, Marvel felt it was a good time to launch a new on-going Iron Man book, making this the second Iron Man book on the bookshelves at the time of its original publication. The timing was good for this release, and they were able to secure a great creative team for the book in the trio of writer Matt Fraction, Spanish comic artist Salvador Larroca, and colorist Frank D'Armata . At the time the original series debuted, I was already familiar with all of these creative talents. I had been reading Fraction's work in the The Immortal Iron Fist, Vol. 1: The Last Iron Fist Story series, had the pleasure of viewing Frank's outstanding coloring work in Annihilation: Conquest Book 1 (Bk. 1), and had fond memories of Larocca's great artwork during his tenure illustrating the X-Treme X-Men, Vol. 1: Destiny (Xtreme) series. Thus, I had a lot of faith that this series would turn out to be worth my while and above average.

No one likes a high and mighty know-it-all. Even Classius Clay didn't become the people's champion until he lost his first fight. In the Marvel universe Tony Stark, the world's foremost futurist, is probably the most smug smart guy around. He wasn't ever my favorite costumed crimefighter, but then the live action movie came along and made me like him and then I picked up Matt Fraction's run and he made me like him even more. Drat.

This is the INVINCIBLE IRON MAN Omnibus and it collects the first 19 issues of the new series, and it's unputdownable enough that it won the Eisner award for Best New Series. If, like me, you're not caught up with everything that Tony Stark has been up to, well, it's fine, because Matt Fraction catches you up enough with the requisite backstory.

This first arc here covers Tony Stark's end stint as Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. as he tangles with global terrorism and with Ezekiel Stane, the homicidal genius son of Obadiah Stane (who had been Stark's nemesis). Young and insane Ezekiel Stane is converting men into walking repulsor bombs, and the kicker is that the technology used is clearly lifted from Tony Stark's design. It's only one element of Ezekiel's murderous vendetta against our favorite superhero industrialist.

The second arc is epic and it comprises the bulk of this collection, and it takes us past the events of the Skrull invasion, and it finds Tony Stark discredited and ousted as Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. on grounds of royally bollocksing stuff up during the invasion. And maybe, just maybe, part of it too is repercussion from his sanctimonious deeds in the Civil War. S.H.I.E.L.D. is shut down, H.A.M.M.E.R. established in its place, with Norman Osborn now running things.
