IRON MAN II #1
The untold origin of Ultimate Marvel's most eccentric billionaire playboy continues in ULTIMATE IRON MAN II #1! International best-selling author Orson Scott Card returns to Ultimate Universe to reveal how Tony Stark developed his taste for wine, women, and war machines. Card is joined by fan-favorite artist Pasqual Ferry (ULTIMATE FANTASTIC FOUR) and special guest cover artist Gabriele Dell'Otto!
When last we saw him, young Tony Stark was nearly blown to bits by his initial Iron Man trial run. How much of him survived -- and where does the young genius go from here? Three words: Ultimate War Machine! Plus, Tony fights to exonerate his father from a murder rap, and reveals his ultimate plan for the perfect fighting machine to Jim Rhodes. If you were shocked by the first series, you ain't seen nothing yet!
"Tony is still on that path to becoming a hero," said series editor Bill Rosemann. "He took the first steps in the first mini, but the road to glory is a long and painful journey. From James Rhodes to Howard Stark to Obadiah Stane, both longtime and new Shell-Head fans will find many intriguing characters impacting the still-developing hero that one day will lead the Ultimates."
With a clandestine group targeting the young hero and Tony forced to battle his own demons, how can he possibly survive these torturous times in his life? And when he does, who will pay the price for Iron Man's existence? One thing's for sure—you can't miss ULTIMATE IRON MAN II #1, written by World Fantasy Award, two-time Nebula Award and Four-time Hugo Award-winning author Orson Scott Card (Ender's Game) and featuring jaw dropping interiors by Pasqual Ferry!
