Synopsis for "The New Iron Age"
We open on Peter Parker riding on the subway in Queens. Tony Stark, as of late, has been trying to remember some of the more dangerous things that his recent brain reboot has caused him to forget, and enlists Peter to help. They track down a dangerous weapon in the hands of Stilt-Man Extremists and we follow the seeds of that technology into the future, where the Mandarin has used it to basically murder the whole planet.
GIANT-SIZED ANNIVERSARY ISSUE! Three generations of Starks face their ultimate foe, seventy-some years in the future while, in the present, Spider-Man joins Iron Man as he tries to fill in the blanks of his missing memory. What if amnesia was a weapon? What if the smartest man in the land had ten nightmares that all came true? Who is the son of Tony Stark? What's inside of the rings? The future starts now, for the Marvel Universe's favorite futurist. The Eisner-award-winning series makes a four-hundred-something-issue leap and raises a glass of non-alcoholic champale in salute to Ol' Shell-head!
