Marvel Launches New Iron Man #1 by Christopher Cantwell and CAFU

After the conclusion of the 2020 event, we will be getting a new Iron Man #1 in September from Marvel Comics. And the new series suggests how 2020 may end. Currently Tony Stark is an artificial intelligence copy of his former self, uploaded into a cloned body of Tony Stark. As Arron Stark, his adoptive brother has taken the role, Tony Stark has become Mark One. But all that appears to be reversed by the news – as he is to be a proper man again.

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, TV's 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. Don't miss your first look at the series in the Iron Man #1 Trailer!

"I'm over the moon about getting a shot at writing the Golden Avenger. Since Bob Layton's art in the 1980s captured my imagination as a kid, I've been fascinated by Iron Man, and in this new story run I'm aiming to explore the question: who should Iron Man be today? An angel? A god? Or just a humble man?" said Cantwell. "Tony's 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. We'll 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."

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 isn't 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 solid…or just overheat?

Iron Man #1 will be published in September.
