Earth's Mightiest Histories: Iron Man
One of the founding Avengers, Iron Man has long served amongst Earth's Mightiest Heroes in many of their incarnations. While his first stint with the team would only last from AVENGERS Vol. 1 #1-16, in those issues he and the Avengers first faced many of their greatest threats, including Kang and the Masters of Evil.
After the West Coast Avengers disbanded, Iron Man helped form Force Works, a more proactive team that would take the fight to the villains. When the group eventually disbanded, Iron Man returned to the Avengers and served almost continuously with the group from AVENGERS Vol. 3 #1 until he found himself on the run from Norman Osborn following the events of Secret Invasion.
Today, Iron Man joins Thor and the new Captain America, Bucky, as well as Steve Rogers on the lineup of Brian Bendis and John Romita, Jr.'s ongoing AVENGERS series, with issue #5 hitting shelves today, September 22!
