The Invincible Iron Man #27 [2010] by Matt Fraction

THE INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #27
THIS IS WHAT WE DO
Tony Stark is rebuilding his empire after the events of Secret Invasion and Dark Reign. A new company rose from the ashes of Stark Industries: Stark Resilent. The new company will license the intellectual properties from the former Stark Industries. Now the US military needs to go elsewhere for its armory supplies. Waiting in the wings is Hammer Industries led by Justin Hammer’s daughter and granddaughter. The Hammer girls presented their new toy to the US Military: Detroit Steel. However the Hammer girls are also supplying rogue countries with old SHIELD hardware, which means Stark Industries weapons. Therefore ruining Tony Stark’s name and reputation and solidifying Hammer Industries position in the defense sector.

Tony continues to rebuild and rehire for Stark Resilient. Pepper talks Tony back into giving her the means to become Rescue again. A terrorist attack is launched in Tokyo however the Hammer girls are prepared with their Detroit Steel mecha. After the showcasing of Detroit Steel in Toyko the US Military decides that they are getting into business with Hammer Industries. Finally Iron Man and War Machine investigate what is happening in Tokyo and showcase their armors.

Quiet issue with no signs of Spymaster who is planning on sabotaging Stark Resilient expect in the introduction of this issue. Nothing major happens expect for long dialogues followed by pictures with no dialogue. This issue seems to set up a showdown between Detroit Steel and Iron Man next issue.
