Book Description

Jan. 18 2012 Invincible Iron Man (Book 2)
He's outrun Norman Osborn, and kept the database of superhuman secret identities safe and secure. But in doing so, Tony Stark has lost just about everything: his armor, his power - even his very mind. Now, at his absolute lowest point, it will take Tony's last reservoir of will - and a band of brothers including Thor, Captain America, War Machine and Black Widow - to keep from losing it all and sow the seeds for a brighter tomorrow. Stark Industries' arms-manufacturing days are over: Tony's new company, Stark Resilient, is bringing modern tech to the masses without bringing innocent people to their knees. But there's a competitor on the scene, a mother/daughter team with a very familiar name ready to pick up the slack with an armor called Detroit Steel. They've started a deadly game of international intrigue that will bring one of Iron Man's deadliest foes back into the fray - but for the Hammer girls, that was merely the opening salvo. With War Machine grounded by the Pentagon, Pepper missing the RT-charged heart that made her Rescue and Tony's Resilient team struggling to put their clean-energy tech into production, they're about to up the ante. Now, Iron Man's going to find out just what "resilient" really means. Collecting INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #20-33.

3.0 out of 5 stars Invincible Iron Fan Jan. 23 2012
By Axel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This review is written specifically for persons who haven't bought the single issues contained in this volume but who bought the previous collection and or people who bought the individual issues and don't yet own another collection of them in any other form. Is this collection worth it? Definitely. The volume contains high quality paper, solid binding, over-sized pages and a beautiful dust jacket and provides real value for money. Easily superseding the quality of DC's Legion of Superheroes Deluxe editions or Invincible Ultimate Collection HCs for example, Marvel also paid attention to detail and took the admirable step of trying to make this volume fairly identical in feel and quality to the previous volume so that there's some consistency between the two, right down to using red as the color for the inner Boards and pages. Presentation-wise therefore, this gets five stars and is a real steal for the price.

Unfortunately, it's the contents that don't fully manage to keep up. Containing issues 20-33 (14 as opposed to the 19 issues in the first volume), this collection contains basically two stories; Stark Disassembled and Stark Resilient. Disassembled is a likeable and fairly entertaining story in which Tony Stark is in a persistent vegetative state after the events of the first volume and needs to be "rebooted" by his most trusted friends and allies, including Thor and Captain America. It's a story that perfectly highlights Tony's hubris, brilliance, vulnerability and narcissism all at once, and moves along at a reasonably good pace, so that, despite the fact that Tony doesn't do a whole lot, there's enough going on around him that the story never fails.

Resilient on the other hand is a fairly plodding story representing a more expansive and maturer rehash of an oft told Iron Man tale, in which Tony is forced to rebuild his company and fortune from the ground up, only to be challenged at every turn by Justine and Sasha Hammer, the daughter and grand daughter respectively, of old late Iron Man foe Justin Hammer. It's a story that's been told many times before, as Iron Man is forced to "rebuild" his company from the ground up almost every other year since he was first published, but Fraction's take distinguishes itself from previous versions by highlighting Tony's vulnerability and giving greater insight into his mental and emotional state. One of Fraction's strengths is that he truly does get Tony's "voice" quite well, and indeed far more so than he understands Thor's or that world. Fraction manages to make Tony deeply flawed, but heroic, if also somewhat loquacious and venal. The major problem with Resilient though is that it's a story in which very little happens until the end, although there are one or two small highlights when it eventually comes. Other little niggling problems are that the story is focused on Tony exploiting his IM technology to bring cheap energy to the world using cars in an arc coming after one in which Fraction was at pains to tell us that one of Tony's 5 greatest nightmares is that his technology would fall into the wrong hands and after Fraction also focuses on the tragedy that can spring from its weaponization. Another niggling problem purely from a fan standpoint is that with all these Iron people in the book and all this IM tech running around, Tony as superhero loses some of his uniqueness and novelty, even while Tony as futurist becomes more compelling. In whichever case, Resilient is at least interesting for highlighting the supporting cast of Iron Man which remains one of the more interesting in comics, for having a particular world view and for broadening the scope of Tony's world. It just takes a long time to do it.

What really makes this volume sing though is the incredibly consistent and entertaining art by Salvador Larocca, who draws all the issues here and has not missed a single issue since no. 1. I won't say more about that as that alone should be enough to earn your respect for Larocca.

Is the volume worth it? Absolutely. One of the advantages of reading collected editions of serialized stories is that, even the most meandering stories when published on the monthly cycle can coalesce into a reasonably entertaining yarn when read at one sitting, and with both Disassembled and Resilient on the plate, with a unified writing and artistic vision for every chapter, it's hard to leave this collection totally unsatisfied. Couple that with the loveliness of the volume in your hands, the extras in the back covering alternate covers, etc, and it's a must have - for a fan of Larocca's IM run.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fraction Continues to be Invincible Jan. 20 2012
By N. Bylander - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
It seemed like this title would never be released, but its finally here and it is fantastic, amazing, incredible, uncanny and all of those other words Marvel likes to attach to their super-heroes! I'm not much for writing reviews, so I'll just tell you that I couldn't set this one down. I usually can't set graphic novels down anyways, but I REALLY couldn't set this one down.

Matt Fraction's writing is the type of high quality entertainment that Marvel should be working harder to keep in their Hollywood films. The art, as with Vol. 1, is also incredible. I was hooked from beginning to end. And now I'll have to wait again for a Vol. 3. Shoot!

If you enjoyed Invincible Iron Man Omnibus, Vol. 1, then I personally guarantee you will love this as well!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fraction Delivers! March 12 2012
By Ben - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you have the first book you must get this second one! It collects issues #20-33 and it's epic. It slows down a bit about halfway through but it is great storytelling and great art. Great buy for its price!
4.0 out of 5 stars Not as much action, but still a great read. March 26 2014

I enjoyed reading the book. Getting a sense of the intelligent and calculating business side of Tony Stark and seeing him kick butt as Iron Man is entertaining on both sides for me. The book was worth every penny, in my opinion.
