In this audio adaptation of the graphic novel by Ellis and Granov, Tony Stark, the man behind Iron Man, seeks balance in his chaotic world. He wants to get away from his work running an international arms manufacturer but is unsure of the effects this move will have on him, his corporation, and Iron Man. When an old friend reveals that a potent new virus is in the hands of a terrorist, Stark—and Iron Man—must fight a man who is programmed to quickly evolve in response to threats. The audio edition delivers an aurally charged adventure that listeners will thoroughly enjoy. Richard Rohan, who directed the production, leads the narration with a strong and deep voice that demands attention and provides the right pitch and momentum as the battle scenes are executed, but Richard Cutting steals the show with his performance of Stark. His tone, timing, and execution have all the swagger, style, and charisma of the many portrayals of the character in other media. Fans of Iron Man comics and movies should not overlook this production. A Marvel hardcover. (June)
