The World According To Iron Man

"Tony Stark makes you feel 
He’s a cool exec with a heart of steel. 
As Iron Man, all jets ablaze, 
He’s fighting and smiting with repulsor rays! 
Amazing armor! That’s Iron Man! 
A blazing power! That’s Iron Man!"

If it weren't for the success of the Marvel Comics' Iron Man movie series there would be no "Marvel Universe" series of movies.  Iron Man set the standards by which all other Marvel movies must meet.

Of all the Marvel superheroes Iron Man is the only one without super powers.  In fact, in his original origin story Tony Stark (Iron Man) had a heart condition (caused by an explosion in Vietnam) that forced him to use the life-giving powers of the Iron Man chest armor.

Iron Man's origin has been 'tweaked' over the years, but it pretty much has remained consistent.
Insight Editions proudly presents 'The World According To Iron Man' written by Larry Hama and Marc Sumerak and beautifully illustrated by Marco Pierfederici.

Iron Man takes center stage on this hardbound book.  Placed against a character background, Iron Man pops off the cover courtesy of a high gloss varnish effect.

Inside Readers catch a glimpse of the life and times of Tony Stark starting with his young genius years and moving right up to his current status as the founder and member of The Avengers.

Discover who his friends and allies are, his enemies, business associates, loves and little known personal facts.

Chapters are dedicated to his pioneering engineering work, Avengers status, corporate dealings and sprinkled throughout are facsimiles of important documents such as blueprints, diplomas, membership documents, business and family photos and papers and even an autographed photo!

The book is packed with amazing special features.  Pick up a copy today.  Tell 'em, "Tony sent ya!"
