Iron Man (2008 series) #25-33 [SET] — Volume 05: Stark Resiliant; The Complete Saga


Tony Stark is back in business with a new enterprise: Stark Resilient.

And there's a group of generals who are very happy to see him!

Though as the masters of war are about to learn, just because they're lined up to buy the latest in Stark weapons tech doesn't mean Stark is going to sell!

Stark Industries' arms-manufacturing days are over; Stark Resilient is bringing modern tech to the masses without bringing innocent people to their knees with the destruction of war.

But what Stark doesn't know is that there's a competitor on the scene, a mother / daughter team (with very familiar name) ready to pick up the slack with an armor called Detroit Steel.

And they've started a deadly game of international intrigue that will bring one of Iron Man's deadliest foes back into the fray!

Then, when Justine and Sasha Hammer said they were going to take on Iron Man and the nascent Stark Resilient, they weren't bluffing.

Their implementation of Detroit Steel led to worldwide embarrassment for Tony Stark.

The whispers of his irrelevance in the tech industry added insult to injury.

But for the Hammer girls, that was merely the opening salvo.

With War Machine grounded by the Pentagon, Pepper missing the RT-charged heart that made her Rescue, and Tony's Resilient team struggling to put their clean-energy tech into production, they're about to up the ante.

Now, Iron Man's going to find out just what "resilient" really means.
