Get set for Superior Iron Man and a shift in locale
Tony Stark is already a pretty cocky guy. Think back to his response in The Avengers when Captain America asked him what he was without the suit of armor: “Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist.” What if Stark got even more self-assured, and went on a mission to make people see things his way?
Welcome to the premise of Superior Iron Man, a new book that will see Ol’ Shellhead don a new hybrid-tech suit, move to the City by the Bay and try to convince the general population that they need a little Extremis in their lives. This will happen in the aftermath of the current AXIS storyline, which spun out from the Avengers/X-Men tentpole book.
Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso sets it up thusly: “Superior Iron Man is a Tony Stark who’s seen both his worst and best impulses all let loose. It is Tony, but he’s going to be in a zone now where he’s never been. He’s more ambitious, cunning, egotistical. He has a vision for the world. I like to think his position is defensible — controversial, but defensible.” Watch for #1 in October to see if you agree with Alonso, and don’t be surprised if Iron Man tangles with San Francisco’s other new resident – Daredevil – in future issues as well!
