In 1996, the hottest creators of the day teamed up to reimagine and reinvigorate Marvel's greatest heroes. The Avengers and Fantastic Four were reborn with bold new looks on a brave new world, their origins re-envisioned with a raw vitality and contemporary sensibility! Industrialist Tony Stark has donned experimental armor, becoming the heroic Iron Man — but he wasn't the first. Haunted by memories of his friend Rebel O'Reilly, killed during testing of the armor, can Tony handle the threat of the Hulk? When Doctor Doom targets Iron Man, painful ghosts of the past re-emerge. And Tony will need to channel every ounce of inventiveness he has if he hopes to stop Galactus!
