Millionaire industrialist Tony Stark is an inventive genius who has dedicated all of his enormous financial and intellectual resources to a single guiding principle: the creation of technology for the betterment of humanity. Stark’s greatest creation is a modern-day miracle: a suit of form-fitting, strength-enhancing, steel-mesh armor he dons to become the living symbol of his ideals, the Invincible Iron Man! But when Stark discovers that the same technology he used to create the Iron Man armor – technology so secret he didn’t even dare patent it – is now in the hands of several deadly super-villains, he feels responsible for the evil they have done with the high-tech tools he unwittingly provided. In the face of objections from his government, friends, colleagues and fellow super heroes, Stark swears to use the power of Iron Man to bring the evil to an end – and to take back what's his. The Beatle, Stilt Man, the Controller, Stingray, the Mandroids, the Guardsmen and Firepower don’t know it yet, but they’ve got a problem. The world’s most powerful force for good isn’t playing by the rules anymore. And he’s coming for them. Collecting IRON MAN #225-232.

It’s a twelve-pack of Captain America classics as only the Marvel Masterworks can bring them to you! Draped in the red, white and blue, there’s no character in all of comics who represents America like Cap, and within these pages two of Marvel’s greatest creators set him on a path through the tumultuous ’70s that bears a character’s, and a nation’s, soul.

The excitement reaches fever pitch when the long, lost Bucky Barnes returns! Free from the guilt of his partner’s death, Cap’s slate is wiped clean, however, anything but a normal life is ahead—because Baron Strucker, Dr. Doom and M.O.D.O.K. are tied up in Bucky’s return. Before the story’s done you’ll witness Cap vs. Bucky, the origin of M.O.D.O.K. and the beginning of the Captain America/Falcon team!

Two exciting Ares series in one action packed collection. First, after thousands of years living as a man and fighting in man’s bloody, petty conflicts, Ares joined the ranks of Earth’s mightiest heroes – the Avengers. Now Norman Osborn – the new head of the corrupted Dark Avengers and director of the paramilitary intelligence agency H.A.M.M.E.R. – wants the finest fighting force the God of War can provide. He charges Ares with hand-picking an elite squad of soldiers and beating them into the hardest, sharpest warriors ever to wield an M-60 in each hand. And that’s exactly what Ares will need, when the goddess Hera provides him with a fighting chance to regain his standing in the pantheon’s eyes. And Ares is taking his men with him into the battle of their lives. Plus, Ares turns his back on Olympus and journeys to Earth to raise his child. But what happens when Olympus, under siege and in danger of falling, calls on its most violent son to come to its rescue? And what happens if Ares refuses? Will Zeus destroy his son...and his grandson...to save his city? This story brings together heroes new and old, uniting Hercules and the Greek Pantheon with the Marvel Universe. May the gods help anyone who stands in Ares’ way! Collecting DARK AVENGERS: ARES #1-3 and ARES #1-5.

As they attempt to make merry despite their melancholy, the Runaways are struck by yet another catastrophe. A mysterious aircraft flying over their Malibu home is somehow lured to it, resulting in a fiery crash. As the team frantically digs through the rubble, they find that their home wasn’t the only casualty: Yet another member of the team has fallen.
