By Squirr-El HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on 6 July 2014
Format: Paperback
The four-issue mini-series of Ultimate Iron Man: Armor Wars from 2009 is collected as Ultimate Comics Iron Man: Armor Wars (Ultimate Comics Iron Man (Quality Paper)). It continues on from Ultimatum, as Iron Man walks through devastated Manhattan to recover an artefact from a Stark Industries building. He discovers Justine Hammer in his office looking for the plans of his nanotech to help her recover from her father’s genetic experimentation. He also discovers a character called the Ghost stealing the artefact he was there himself to recover. Cue long chase across Europe to find out who has been black-marketing Stark technology, with stop offs in Prague to fight a mad scientist and London to fight the Metropolitan Police, both of who are equipped with Iron Man technology. Finally it is off to Colorado or Nebraska, or someplace, to find the secret base of the mastermind behind the criminal operation, and have the showdown and reveal the secret within the artefact.

This is a relatively slight story, but well-written and excellently illustrated, which makes up for much.

As I have stated before, currently the Ultimate Marvelverse is one of the few places of solus with regards to sanity (mostly anyways) and post-Ultimatum, the universe seems to be restoring to its pre-Ultimatum level of quality. Being the massive fan of Ultimate Iron Man that I am, when I heard he'd got his own series (and not as a teenager) I leapt at the chance to see my favourite Ultimate character in his own miniseries. I was not disappointed.

Warren Ellis is no stranger when it comes to Iron Man, having penned the best Iron Man story of the 20th century and possibly the best Iron Man story EVER in the form of "Extremis." However, he's also written the heavily underwhelming "Ultimate Human" which was originally "Ultimate Iron Man vs Hulk" until the appearance of Ultimate Leader meant that all awesome punchfests were put on hold for about 3 issues of boring origin for a character who is promptly killed off in the last issue. I digress, anyway, with this, Ellis has proved he's still capable of penning an engaging and entertaining Iron Man story, even without the gorgeous art of Adi Granov.

"Ultimate Armour Wars" is set almost immediately post-Ultimatum with Iron Man surveying the ruined cityscape of Manhattan. No sooner than he's begun narrating an iTunes podcast (seriously) he receives intel that the Stark Manhattan Office has been broken into and his tech stolen. This break-in is only part of a bigger picture as Stark finds his tech being copied and exploited for legions of battlesuits and armour in a re-tread of the classic armour wars arc in the classic Marvelverse (recently adapted in part for "Iron Man 2").

The world has been devastated by war and economic collapse and Tony Stark is down to his last $100 million! Going back to his NY offices he sees a thief wearing Iron Man tech break into his offices and disappear! Then a mysterious girl with Iron Man type tech shows up to help and the race is on for Stark to stop his tech from falling into the wrong hands!

As you might tell from the title "Armour Wars" has a lotta guys wearing Iron Man suits, all in different colours and slightly modified in design. They're all cool to look at and while the action might at times seem a bit Manga (think Guyver or Patlabor) it's nonetheless exciting to see on the page. Full credit to the artist Steve Kurth for doing a fantastic job.

And Warren Ellis writes a great Tony Stark. If you're as big a fan of Ellis as I am you'll notice that Stark speaks like a few of Ellis' characters like Spider Jerusalem or Midnighter, that is filthy and drunken and articulate. It's a potent mix.

A great script, even better artwork, and lotsa Iron Man action make for a great lil comic book (and it is lil unfortunately at 4 issues) and hopefully these two will team up for a longer piece another time. Meanwhile we've got "Armour Wars" and it's great fun to read!
