Banner of War June Solicits: Of Course Iron Man Screws Things Up

Has Tony Stark getting involved ever made any situation better? We all remember the atrocity that was Marvel's Avengers vs. X-Men super-mega-crossover event. The story went like this: The Avengers, upon learning that the Phoenix Force was headed toward Earth to choose a new host, decided that the host would probably be Hope Summer and invaded the sovereign nation of Utopia to demand Hope be handed over into custody so she could be imprisoned on the moon for crimes she might commit in the future while under the influence of a bird-themed cosmic death god. The X-Men fought back, so Tony Stark took things into his own hands and created a device to shoot the Phoenix Force with. Instead of stopping it, the device split the Phoenix Force into five versions which each chose a different X-Men as host. All of that was Tony Stark's fault, but that didn't stop The Avengers from being totes jealous of the X-Men for using that power to make the world a better place and waging war on them. Now, another war is happening, and once again Tony Stark wants to get involved. And once again, according to the solicit for Thor #26, the penultimate issue of Banner of War, his "interference causes more harm than good." Sounds about right.

Check out the full solicits, which we previously got a little glimpse of, below:

About Jude Terror

A prophecy claims that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events. Unfortunately, nobody can tell when the comics industry has reached its "darkest days" because it somehow keeps finding new lows to sink to. No matter! Jude Terror stands vigilant, bringing the snarkiest of comic book and pro wrestling clickbait to the undeserving readers of Bleeding Cool.
