Ultimate Iron Man, Vol. 2 book. I really enjoyed Ultimate Iron Man I. But I was really disappointed by this volume. Pasqual Ferry's energetic art in books like Adam Strange is completely static here thanks to unimaginative grids and layouts. And the story isn't really all that interesting. Pasqual Ferry's digital art is occasionally quite engaging - but mostly disposable.

Ultimate Iron Man Ii has been added to your Cart. All told, it's a ten-issue story that reimagines Tony Stark in modern times. While it is set in the Ultimate Universe (what a great set of stories), this Iron Man is a bit different than the Mark Millar Iron Man of the Ultimates, but no big matter. Card's re-imagining of the Iron Man character is as far from the spirit and intent of the original as it would have been if Bendis had made Flash Thompson the Ultimate Spider Man instead of Peter Parker. BUT, if you treat this as a story completely unrelated Iron Man, it's actually outstanding.

This book gets a lot of mixed reviews, and rightfully so. It's an off-color origin tale for everyone's favorite eccentric billionaire, Tony Stark that features heavy sci-fi elements and completely re-imagines Iron Man's abilities. The fact that it later gets placed out of Ultimate Universe continuity is a drag, and may be a problem for some, but I rated the book on it's own merits.

I think the problem some people have with this origin is that it's wildly different from the ones that most fans are used to. As we all know, major changes in comics are like kryptonite for hardcore fans. I didn't mind most of the changes. I didn't even have a problem with Tony literally being blue during his early years.

However, the Bio-Armor, introduced early in the story, is interesting but ends up becoming a plot-crutch that allows for reckless story-telling. There's really no sense of danger for Tony throughout the story because of it, which really brings the story down in my eyes.

The pacing is up-and-down. At different times, it feels slow, fast and just right. The story remains coherent and well-written in spite of this, but it can be a little disorienting at times.

The characters are very well written. It's interesting to get a good look at Tony Stark's father, who has never been written about in this detail to my knowledge. Obadiah Stane is a great character and absolutely stole the show at times. You cannot help but despise him. Tony is solid here but perhaps a bit understated compared to your typical Iron Man. The only character I had a problem with was Loni Stark. Without trying to spoil anything, I had a hard time buying her as a mastermind villain from her early appearances in this book.

The artwork is very modern and very good. It's consistent from panel to panel and is very detailed.

It's an entertaining story with artwork we've come to expect from modern comics, but the fact that it's later retconned from continuity makes it less appealing for collectors. However, if you're just looking for an entertaining story featuring a teenage Iron Man, I totally recommend this.
You will enjoy this book a WHOLE LOT more if you just realize it's not an Iron Man story and treat it as if it were an entirely new character, called maybe "Neuro-Mutant-Armored-Guy" instead of Iron Man. Card's re-imagining of the Iron Man character is as far from the spirit and intent of the original as it would have been if Bendis had made Flash Thompson the Ultimate Spider Man instead of Peter Parker.

BUT, if you treat this as a story completely unrelated Iron Man, it's actually outstanding. If it were presented as a new hero and not labeled Iron Man I would rate this book 5 stars. It's the fact that it is a non-Iron Man story shoehorned into the Iron Man mythos that brings it down to 3 stars for me.

By comparison, plotting, pace, development are all better done than Ultimate Iron Man, Volume 1, but still a far cry from the much superior Ultimate Spiderman and Ultimate Fantastic Four series.
[...] I really looked forward to this storyline, hoping that it would have the same kind of emotional pull and realism (as real as comics can be anyway) of other Ultimate lines such as The Ultimates and Ultimate Spider-Man. While I'm not disappointed in the Iron Man storyline, I'm not exactly thrilled either. I agree - the story moves WAY too fast. That's my biggest gripe - granted its a comic book, but exposition and character development does count for something. Spend a page or two developing these characters more - it can't hurt. I learned more about Iron Man and Tony Stark by reading the one page dossier at the end of the book than I did by reading the comics!

What I did like about the book was the explanation behind the development of the armor in the first place. I can only imagine how tough the premise has to be - why would a billionaire playboy develop a suit of killer armor? I'm ok with the explanation and rationale here. Its a little freaky, but it works. I also like the fact that Rhodey is introduced so early and that he's not just a gung-ho, "T.C." type of character, a la the original Iron Man series. He's a smart kid with a lot of potential but seems to have a bit of a temper problem. That's a good mix! But again, more development would be nice.

Overall, not bad - but not the best either. I'm sure things will develop nicely as time goes by, so I'm not too worried about IM. I'm just glad the armor ends up looking like it does with the Ulitimates and not at the end of this book. Looks too much like the "Iron Giant".

Excelsior!
I was looking for complete Ultimate Iron Man sets. So when I searched for them this was one of the only links I received at the time. The other sites were clearly marked, clearly stating that they did not have sets but only issues, this link stated a complete set first but in the fine print that it was only the first issue. In the end I kept the issue, since I needed a going away gift for someone, but expected a full set. I was disappointed because one one hand I read the heading too quickly but on the other hand it seems like it was written to confuse people looking for complete sets into buying one expensive issue.
