Interesting enough, and certainly as a long-time fan I wondered how Marvel would solve the problem of one of their heroes becoming a mind-controlling villain.
But the pay off...
As you might expect this all leads to a major confrontation with Tony, and we see him become more and more of mustache-twirling villain. The back up copy is defeated, which is nice since 'back up copy' is how Marvel solved things last time Tony became irredeemable. And the time before that too... But it ends with evil Tony just flying off as Pepper vows to use the media to destroy him.
Meanwhile an editor's note tells us to check out Secret Wars and the next page starts a reprint of a 30 year old story.
A quick trip to Wikipedia tells me that evil Tony was squashed by a falling helicarrier in Secret Wars and then reality was rebooted. And this story line was never spoken of again.
So, yeah. How did Marvel get out of this corner? They waved it away. And if you were interested in the situation, the characters, the plot... oh well.
So skip both books. Please.
Pepper Potts has had enough! As Tony Stark's wealth and influence increase across the globe, he prepares to unveil a new Stark world. Pepper alone knows the extent of his "superiority," and she's determined to prevent him from slipping even further. But she'll need help. As Tony is left reeling by shocking revelations, doubt begins to creep in, and his future looks uncertain. Who or what lurks in Tony's old armor - and can Pepper trust it? Iron Man clashes with Iron Man in an epic battle that could mean the death of the Tony Stark we know and love. The Superior Iron Man is dead -long live the Superior Iron Woman? Plus, Tony struggles with sobriety in a seminal story from his classic years!
