What is Extremis, who has unleashed it, and what does its emergence portend for the world? Collects Iron Man (2004) #1-6.
Pretty darn good!
Having just seen the movie, I wanted to go back and read the story that inspired it. While certain technology elements betray the time it was written (Stark's super cell phone is very 2004), the plot is very stripped down and carries the story forward well, with relatively little Iron Man back story needed to dive in and understand the characters or their motivations. The art work is good, although I'm not a huge fan of this look. Too bad some of the elements didn't make it into the film, it would have been interesting to have Stark go through the Extremis process to really become Iron Man "inside and out".
