    Ultimately, with the Invincible Iron Man #1, Ellis has constructed a memorable, if not particularly spectacular, opening issue. The story is sure to please the loyal throngs of Iron Man fans as well as offer an ideal place for new readers to jump on. For a first issue it manages to accomplish a great deal indeed, giving insight into Stark and the origins of Iron Man as well as offering an intriguing sub plot. In this sense The Invincible Iron Man #1 is definitely worth the read, but with hundreds of thousands of dollars invested in the series, a featured film in the works, and exclusive contracts signed, one cant help but wonder what Spider Jerusalem would think.
