His name is Tony, and he's an alcoholic. Iron Man saw a city turned to stone and witnessed a war among gods. And when he thought the world was ending, he got drunk.

Bloodied but not beaten in the wake of Fear Itself, he's a hero with a humble goal: to make things right, in both his business and his life.

But the Mandarin and Ezekiel Stane have other plans, publicizing Tony's struggle to stay sober while assembling a super-villain army to close in for the kill.

And Sasha and Justine Hammer are continuing to tighten the screws on the only man who stands in their way on the road to worldwide technological dominance.

Can Iron Man withstand this all-out assault, or will he again succumb to his demon?

Plus, Learn the shocking Origin of Iron Man's Arch Nemesis, The Mandarin!

By Matt Fraction & Matt Wilson.  
"Mandarin: The Story of My Life"  The Secret Origin of The Mandarin
The Mandarin is a collection of lies, stories, myths, and legends. But two things are true: He wears, upon each finger, an alien weapon of unimaginable power…and he's going to kill Tony Stark. Is he a violent street crook born in a brothel? The scion of an aristocratic dynasty? Was his father was a petty criminal or an ambassador? Was his mother a British noblewoman, or maybe a dragon-chasing wastrel lost in the underbelly of the world? He's a murderer, a businessman, an artist, a terrorist, a hero. And this is the story of his life.
