While traveling in the field to service his newly invented battle armor, billionaire genius Tony Stark was gravely injured by shrapnel from a claymore mine.
Captured by the warlord Wong-Chu, Stark was pressed into service to create a new advanced armor based upon his battle armor, in exchange for a crucial chest operation to save his life when the work was complete.
Provided with a laboratory and equipment he was teamed with fellow prisoner-of-war Dr. Ho Yinsen, one of the worlds leading physicist. They created an armor that would not only allow Stark to escape, but save his life by keeping his injured heart beating, despite the shrapnel injury.
The world was led to believe Iron Man was Stark's personal bodyguard. In his dual role, Stark faces corporate intrigue and super-powered menaces. A modern day knight fighting injustice wherever it rears its head as the Invincible Iron Man.
