Before 2008, Iron Man comic books weren't all that popular, or at least Iron Man was not a stand out. Well, after RDJ got his hands on him that changed in a big way. There are a ton of great Iron Man storylines, some of which have been realized on the big screen, like Extremis and Iron Monger, but some of the best Iron Man story arcs can only be found in the books.

If you find yourself Iron Man-curious, but don't know where to jump in, you're not alone. It can be very overwhelming to try to figure out where to begin with 50+ years of history, and who wants to start at the very beginning? That's a lot of work.

Fortunately for you, what follows is a list of the 20 best Iron Man stories, a number of which are good starting points, as Tony, like all characters has had no shortage of reboots.
