Who Does Tony Stark Kill in Incredible Iron Man #1?

At the end of Iron Man #25, we noted some teases for what the new Gerry Duggan & Juan Frigeri will be bringing to the character with their new Invincible Iron Man series beginning this month.

She Hulk To Defend Tony Stark For Murdere, In New Invincible Iron Man? (Spoilers)

We had someone trying to kill Tony Stark, but also he is being defended against something in court by Jennifer Walters, the She-Hulk. Both Amazing Spider-Man and Fantastic Four have featured stories in which the lead characters have done something very bad, that others cannot forgive them for, but the nature of what it is, has been kept hidden from the reader. And it looked like Tony Stark was going to join them…

Suspected of being a murderer, according to that graffiti, with the sins of the father, and the return of the Armor Wars suit of the Stark/Stane battles, just ahead of the upcoming Armor Wars TV show.

As well as an X-Men crossover with… Hope?

Iron Man


Comic Book has now run a preview of that first issue out next week and are suggesting that it will all be about Tony Stark's death. "Instead of occupying a fancy mansion or Avengers Tower, Tony Stark is regulated to a workshop in the basement of his brownstone. The working quarters aren't the best, but Tony is still tinkering with a lone Iron Man armor (The Mark 70). In the background is an arc reactor that begins buzzing…"

"…and when Tony takes a look back at it, an explosion takes out the entire brownstone. Amid the rubble are broken family photos from the other residents, a dismantled piece of Iron Man faceplate, and a motionless hand sticking out of the rubble with blood dripping from it…"

Iron Man

"…We're supposed to believe that hand belongs to Tony Stark, but since it has a watch on its wrist – and Tony was never shown to be wearing a hand – it probably belongs to one of his neighbors, who is now dead."

Indeed, especially since a) he has to go to trial and b) is in all the following solicitations. But is blowing up a building the thing Tony did that gets him in the courts and vilified as a murderer? Who in that building died? Are we going to get a storyline looking at corporate responsibility with Tony Stark targeted for running such dangerous experiments with weapons of mass destruction in a residential area?
