THE SCOOP: A new era begins for the Golden Avenger as Mike Grell (Green Arrow: Longbow Hunters) and Michael Ryan (CABLE) climb on board as the new creative team! ? THE STORY: Years ago, Tony Stark was a builder of weapons ? but when he became aware of the cost in lives, he mended his ways. But now, a cache of those long-forgotten weapons has resurfaced, in a hot-spot nation torn by internal strife! How far must Stark go to prevent anyone else from being slaughtered by the fruits of his genius ? especially when the power of Iron Man is denied him?! It's a double-sized kick-off to a brand-new chapter in the life of the Armored Avenger! ? THE WRITER SPEAKS: "The approach that I'm taking is to focus on the man inside Iron Man," Grell told Newsarama. "The character, as he stands right now with the amount of super-tech and weaponry that he packs in his suit of armor, is as close to as invulnerable as you can get. He can do just about anything, and always has a gadget handy that helps him deal with any physical obstacle that would come along. But what about the emotional obstacles? What about the human part of him?" ? THE EDITOR SPEAKS: "If you look at everything Mike has done, his work has all the components of what makes up good Iron Man stories," explained Tom Brevoort. "He does great adult characters, has a good handle on technology, understands politics, and knows about the world of high finance ? all in all, he has a good handle on characters. Every character he writes has some real 'meat' to it." ? THE FORMAT: 48 pages, with ads. 7-59606-04457-5-05011 (MarvelPG) 2.99 Cover price $3.50.
