ULTIMATE ARMOR WARS #1 (November, 2009)
By Warren Ellis & Steve Kurth

APPEARANCES:
Iron Man, Happy Hogan (voice only), Justine Hammer, Ghost

SYNOPSIS:
Iron Man wanders through a decimated New York City (it happened in Ultimatum!). When he arrives at his offices looking for an artifact, he finds Justine Hammer already there looking for nanotech. She explains she’s dying from upgrades her father gave her. They’re attacked by the Ghost, who steals the artifact Stark was looking for. Ghost escapes and Iron Man takes Justine to another location where he fixes her. She offers to help him get his stuff back from the Ghost, and tells him that others in addition to the Ghost have pilfered his technology.

ULTIMATE ARMOR WARS #2 (December, 2009)
By Warren Ellis & Steve Kurth

APPEARANCES:
Iron Man, Justine Hammer, Dr. Faustus (Johann Fennhoff), Bram Velsing

SYNOPSIS:
Tony and Justine travel to Europe and find Dr. Fautus, who bought the Iron Man schematics. They find out from him that they were then sold to Bram Velsing. Iron Man flies to Velsing home, the restored Castle Frankenstein, where the armored Velsing attacks Iron Man.

ULTIMATE ARMOR WARS #3 (January, 2010)
By Warren Ellis & Steve Kurth

APPEARANCES:
Iron Man, Bram Velsing, Justine Hammer, Ghost

SYNOPSIS:
Iron Man quickly defeats Iron Monger and learns he sold Iron Man technology to the British. On the way to London, Stark learns that his technology is being used in riot gear. Sending Justine on a side mission, Iron Man attacks the armored SWAT (basically) team, but they’re too much for his suit, which was damaged in battle against Iron Monger. Ghost also attacks him and Iron Man crashes into the river.

ULTIMATE ARMOR WARS #4 (April, 2010)
By Warren Ellis & Steve Kurth

APPEARANCES:
Iron Man, Justine Hammer, Ghost, Iron Monger (Howard Stark Sr.)

SYNOPSIS:
Iron Man is rescued by the armored riot squad because they’re received new orders. Justine arrives and says she convinced the government that their new armor technology was stolen from Stark and they’ve agreed to let him destroy it. They’re attacked by Arsenal units (robots, basically) and brought to the Ghost’s boss, Iron Monger, Stark’s grandfather, Howard Stark Sr. Iron Monger wants Tony’s help because his robot parts are old and need upgrades, and demands to know what’s in the artifact that Ghost stole earlier. Tony opens it, and an alternate reality Tony Stark’s decapitated head is inside. This alternate Tony Stark is from a universe where everything is on fire, and all the technology in the room is destroyed. Since Stark previously shielded himself from these effects he’s the only one that survives.
