Ever wondered whatever the heck "Extremis" was? (Pt 1)

One of the things I love about comics is the science. The stuff that makes no sense but looks beautiful (Jack Kirby!) to the stuff that makes a perfect amount of sense by people who have thought it through and taken ideas and concepts from now and projected them toward the future (Warren Ellis!).

A great example of this is the Extremis process from Ellis' relaunch of Iron Man from a few years back.

Here's a page from Iron Man v4 #3 explaining how Extremis works.

And obviously (because this is comics!) when Tony Stark gets his hands on it, the whats and whys and hows of Extremis change immensely and again it's just so. Damn. Cool. You can probably guess I'm having ultimate fun combing through back issues right now.

I'll hopefully be following up with what Tony does to Extremis later on in the series later this week, if you're interested?
