Iron Man Goes Back To Basics With New Title From Christopher Cantwell, CAFU And Alex Ross


Jay Cochran - June 12, 2020
This September, Tony Stark will be going back to basics and putting the MAN back in Iron Man! Acclaimed writer and producer Christopher Cantwell (Doctor Doom, TVís Halt and Catch Fire) and international superstar artist CAFU (Jane Foster: Valkyrie) will be bringing Marvel readers a new age of iron, including an all-new suit of armor designed by legendary Marvel painter Alex Ross. Donít miss your first look at the series in the Iron Man #1 Trailer!



ďIím over the moon about getting a shot at writing the Golden Avenger. Since Bob Laytonís art in the 1980s captured my imagination as a kid, Iíve been fascinated by Iron Man, and in this new story run Iím aiming to explore the question: who should Iron Man be today? An angel? A god? Or just a humble man?Ē said Cantwell. ďTonyís going to try and strip the idea of Iron Man all the way down to its metal core, something that will constantly be at odds with his giant ego. Weíll see if he can truly keep his arrogant self-image in check, even as others with god complexes set their sights on the entire universe.Ē

Tony is putting away his high-tech toys and high-profile image so he can get his hands dirty again. But can he really lay that Stark-sized ego down? Life isnít always that simple, something that old friends and frustrating foes are quick to point out. If you strip a billionaire down to his bolts, does he run solidÖor just overheat?

For answers to these questions, along with a thrilling new era of rock-solid super-heroic action and adventure, do not miss IRON MAN #1 when it soars into comic shops this September!

Scourge didn't kill Trapster.

Also it should be noted thatGruenwald did later regret killing off all those lame villains, believing he should have tried to revamp them rather than just getting rid of them.

No, but he killed The Melter. I think that's what @Atlantis was talking about.

HA! You know it. Still,Mark Gruenwaldwas onto something back in the 80s when he created Scourge, who basically was wiping out useless, poorly made villains like Melter and Paste Pot.Too bad that nobody working at Marvel has the sense to let dead characters stay dead.

Yeah buddy! Say what you will, but the man could certainly come up with cheap publicity stunt stories to cover his inability to write anything substantial.

Lol! Well, this is the man that brought you "Paste Pot Pete". And really, his name is nowhere near as offensive as his costume! Still, a huge want for me, action figure-wise. It'd be cool to see him or a successor to the name back in the comics as well.

On the "weak bench" Melter comes to mind, who actually gave Iron Man a pretty hard time, all thing considered. But that name.....MELTER....wow, Stan. That's what you came up with? Lot of thought went into that one eh? Not to mention those idiotic costumes he had. Wonder his real name wasn't Milt Melton, who lived on Molten Ave., and stuffed his face with tuna melts,plotting his evilschemes, all the while ranting to his pet goldfish Melty.Jeez.

I'd rather get the Marco Scarlotti version of Blacklash instead of his 1st app version of Whiplash. much more formidable opponent for IM and cooler look.

You always have the option to not buy any if you don't like the "outdated corny costumes " from the 70s & 80s. Many of us IM fans of those eras do.

One thing that is highlighted is the relatively weak bench of villains the early Iron Man actually has (to be fair, one could say that about any superhero though). Whiplash, for instance, shouldn't be anything other than a minor annoyance to him. I remember an issue where Spymaster tore the crap out of his armor with powered nunchuks. These are guys who really shouldn't be able to get within 10ft of shellhead before theyre blasted thru a concrete wall by his repulsors.

At the same time, if Hasbro were to make these guys into figures, I would expect them to look like they do in the comics. Cant wait for heavy hitters like Crimson Dynamo and Titanium Man to show up, but in the meantime if you wanna do Unicorn or Bros Grimm, then by all means, do it right.
