Brilliant Novel

It would seem that there are a lot of people who have critiqued this book who are hardly worthy to call themselves iron man fans at all. As a man who has been with the Iron Man saga from the late 70's, I must say that Greg Cox did an excellent job with this book. Perhaps if the other people who did reviews were smart enough to understand the technicalities and "jargon", they wouldn't make hopelessly stupid comments about it and realise how important and intriguing the technical knowledge is with these stories. Iron Man is my favorite comic charecter by far, and it is Iron Man's legacy beyond the suit, the man, and his enemies...his very ability to overcome situations and beat the odds, that make this an absolute winner. Many of the ideas put forth for Iron Man came from very real backgrounds of science and mathematics that a lot of people seem to have trouble grasping when they write reviews. So before you listen to the cretons who rated this book poorly, buy it and read it for yourself optimistically. It's a good read, and Greg Cox did an excellent job with the detail as well as with the assignment of charecter to friends and foes.

A fun read for ANY comic book fan...

I'll admit that Iron Man is not my favorite character, but this is still a darn good book. It does a great job of covering all aspects of Tony Stark/Iron Man's career/life including his origin, friends, enemies, and also personal tragedies (i.e. Tony' alcholism, health problems, etc.). It does have a little too much techno-gobleddygook talk for MY TASTES, but that's just me. Also, it tends too focus more on War Machine than on Tony/Iron Man, but War Machine IS cool, I'd just rather have seen him gotten his own book. Anyways, this is good one, enjoy!

Good book that focuses on WM as well as IM.

I must compliment Greg Cox on his outstanding work in "The Armor Trap". I greatly enjoyed the battle scenes that focused on War Machine, the pages went by in a blur. However, (I'll try not to spoil the plot! ) near the end when Tony was "surfing" cyberspace in his brain, I got extremely confused with all the jargon and sentences that (to me) made almost no sense to me. Could be because I'm not that computer-savvy, or maybe that I'm only 15. But, hey, I stuck with it and it turned out to be a wild ride, so I'm sure you can, too! Thanks again, Mr. Cox!

Excellent book

Can't believe I'm the first to review this book. Anyway...excellent novel. Love the way Greg describes the working of the Iron man/War Machine armor. it was good to see the "first" War Machine armor design (don't like the "alien" armor). It was also nice to see a "flashback" of the reasoning behind the origin of Tony's armor. Guess i'll have to read the next book...when i get a chance to pick it up
