Iron Man Books, Trade Paperbacks, and Must-Haves

Last update: February 14th, 2006

A listing of Iron Man novels, trade paperbacks, and must-have issues.

To Special Features


In the late Nineties, several novels featuring Shellhead were published. Yes, there was a run of novels featuring Marvel heroes in the Seventies and Eighties (Our favorite Avenger starred in Iron Man: And Call My Killer....Modok written by William Rotsler, 1979, Pocket Books. Good luck in finding it!!) but Marvel's made a broad committment to develop a text-only revenue stream. It didn't last that long, but it might be back as trends always seem to repeat themselves.

Available Iron Man novels:

The Armor Trap by Greg Cox

Iron Man: Operation A.I.M. by Greg Cox

Spider-Man and Iron Man: Sabotage by Pierce Askegran & Danny Fingeroth. (This book is the continuation of a series of Spidey team-ups, this one guest-starring Tony Stark and Iron Man, of course.

And in the Young Adult genre:

Iron Man Super Thriller: Steel Terror by Dean Wesley Smith
