It's the middle decades of the 21st century. After a lifetime fighting crime, corporate evil and super-powered villainy as Iron Man, industrialist and inventor Tony Stark faces his biggest challenge ever: building the legacy he will leave humankind after he's gone. But when his world-changing project comes under attack, Tony must fight espionage and super-villainy once more, perhaps for the final time. The legendary Iron Man creative team of David Michelinie and Bob Layton teams with penciler Bernard Chang to tell the final story of Iron Man's life! And in Requiem, take a trip back with this special presentation of Tony Stark's early adventures as the Golden Avenger. In TALES OF SUSPENSE #39, see how a billionaire playboy is transformed into a super hero after he's injured in combat and has to invent a life-sustaining suit of armor. Then in INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #144, discover the truth behind Tony Stark's first adventure in Vietnam! All this plus a framing sequence by Matt Fraction and Kano!
Collecting IRON MAN: THE END, IRON MAN: REQUIEM (which has reprints of Tales of Suspense #39: Iron Man is Born and Invincible Iron Man #144: Apocalypse Then) and IRON MAN #116 & #244.
