Each week we highlight a classic storyline told in full inside Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited, the greatest collection of Marvel comics available online! This week we look back at the conflict that altered the life and powers of Iron Man forever, when he first encountered "Extremis"!
Written by the critically-acclaimed Warren Ellis with art by the one and only Adi Granov—the same Adi Granov who helped design Iron Man's big screen duds—"Extremis" packs a one-two punch of killer visuals and gripping storytelling to open up the fourth volume of IRON MAN with a six-part epic.
After squaring off against a new foe who can move faster than he can command his armor, Tony Stark
faces one of his greatest fears when he fails to stop a severe ravaging at the hands of this bloodthirsty enemy: becoming obsolete.
Redefining Iron Man for the 21st Century, "Extremis" takes the events that pushed Tony to don that crude iron armor in the first place, and repeats them in dramatic fashion, as the only way Stark can save his life lies in building a not just a new suit of armor, but also by rebuilding his very physiology. .
