In the year 2011, Tony Stark is the Iron Man. But Tony was not always this way and neither was the Iron Man. This is their story.
The Outstanding is a Universe made up by a host of talented writers, where characters from the regular Marvel universe are creatively reshaped and re-interpreted. New stories are told, traditional stories are re-told for a modern audience all with one purpose: to entertain you. I continue this tradition with the Outstanding Iron Man!
Billionaire industrialist Tony Stark was one of the smartest men on the planet. Whe he donned state-of-the-art high-tech armour of his own design, he became one of the world's most powerful super heroes ... The Outstanding Iron Man! But as the world finds itself gripped in the horrific grasp of war, Anthony Stark finds himself embroiled in a plot that reaches far beyond his wildest imagingings. Across three generations the Stark Legacy has been upheld in the most desperate times of war: Tony means to change that with his one greatest invention of all time ... the Iron Man!
HeroxMatt, the writer of other Outstanding fan fics such as Yellowjacket and Wasp, Tales of Asgard and Guardians of the Galaxy - along with up-and-coming artist Ibraim Roberson, artist of Generation Hope, bring you the origins of not only the latest in a long line of Starks, but also brings you the origins of the very Stark Legacy. Interweaving past and present through the most harrowing crises America has ever faced, a Stark has stood tall and powerful to provide the country the defence it needed. But at what cost? And what is the true, dreadful legacy left behind in the Stark name?
Prepare to witness... the Outstanding!
