Marvel's hammer-pounding event Fear Itself continues spilling throughout the big heroes' titles, and Iron Man is no exception – especially since Fear Itself scribe Matt Fraction is also on duty with Shellhead.
The Serpent, aka the God of Fear, aka Odin's archnemesis, aka Old Nastyman, has inducted Paul Pierre Duval into his hammer-wielding hardass club known as The Worthy. That may not sound like much until you realize that Ol' Pierre goes by the nom de guerre The Grey Gargoyle, with the power of turning everything he touches to stone, including the citizens of Paris. He's now a hardass who can make your ass hard. And it's up to Tony Stark to find a way to stop his reign of terror through "La Ville-Lumière."
