As Tony Stark heads back to the big screen for "Iron Man 2," he brings with him a host of new problems and big enemies. One particularly painful thorn in his side will bethe armor-clad, energy whip-wielding villain known as Whiplash. To get you up to speed on all things Whiplash, Marvel's kicking off a four-issue IRON MAN VS. WHIPLASH limited series beginning in November.
"Before he flays the metal off of Tony Stark's hide in 'Iron Man 2,' this is every True Believer's chance to crawl inside the twisted head of the wicked Whiplash," boasts Editor Bill Rosemann. "If it's jet-setting, globe-trotting, eye-popping action you crave, IRON MAN VS. WHIPLASH will make you believe that Tony Stark is indeed a cool exec with a heart of steel...and Whiplash is the fiend that will break it!”
