Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Michael Jung
When billionaire industrialist Tony Stark dons his high-tech armored suit, he becomes Iron Man, a state-of-the-art superhero with advanced weaponry and extraordinary abilities. But on a business trip to New Mexico, Tony meets Samuel Smithers, a brilliant botanist whose work with stem cells and plant DNA has granted him the ability to transform plants into anything he desires—including a biological suit of armor that rivals Iron Man's! Fearing that Tony will steal his work, Smithers kidnaps Tony's assistant and becomes the evil Plantman. Now, Iron Man must outsmart Plantman's deadly spores and acidic enzymes before the villain distributes his mutant seeds around the world and starts a new era of plant domination. Part of Marvel Comics' Marvel Age imprint of comics for younger readers, this Iron Man series offers sophisticated artwork by Ronan Cliquet and Amilton Santos. The script, by award-winning writer Fred Van Lente, is easy to follow and intelligent enough to hold the attention of an older reader. Librarians should know that Iron Man's Marvel Age comics fall into a separate continuity from his mainstream book The Invincible Iron Man, which can feature more mature plots. Reviewer: Michael Jung
