Okay... Wheres Tony, please?

Posted by RedOwl_1

First Teen Titans and now Iron Man, Who else is going to wear Tron costumes?!? >:(

Posted by JPWolf5

Why is he fighting Somali pirates who somehow have a powered exoskeleton armor

Posted by SnakeEyes327

I still like the Bleeding Edge armor more, but the new suit, which from here-on-out will be called "Iron Tron" is pretty cool.

Posted by Primmaster64

On 2 months...Tony will be back.

Edited by poetixmind

Maybe Jarvis finally go full AI and mans a suit. Giving us the new Iron man, tony's Iron man and war machine

Some people here are stupid as heck with your "Tron" comments. Just because a costume has glowing lines doesn't mean it Tron. Tron was in a computer you imbeciles. I hope it's this Mainframe guy. BUT based on the armor designs it appears to be Havok with upgrades & a mask.

Sir, yes sir. But people should post logical comment instead of trying to be "cute" or make "cookie cutter" remarks just because everyone is else is doing it. If someone jumped off a bridge & said "hey come jump off this bridge with me" would you? I wouldn't do it. LOL but anyways they should provide logical answers. I actually took time out to accurately make a educated guess based on the evidence provide.

If it weren't for the face plate, you wouldn't even know it was Iron Man.

I bet you its vision

The artwork is disgusting; severely lacking in detail. Aesthetically, this looks almost identical to Tony's "Bleeding Edge" armor, but with a different color scheme.

Posted by BritishMonkey

it's still tony, he's just fucking with the mandarin and the government

Posted by X9

Hum, not sure if I like that... I simply don't see anyone else being as Iron Man as Tony :P

And it's not like, for example, when Batman's mantle was taken by Dick, which was a transition that didn't surprise readers that much. I mean, Bruce trained and raised all Robins, it'd perfectly acceptable if any of them turned into Batman.

Anyway, let's see hjow it goes.

Posted by TheReaper111

tony will be gone for a couple of months at most before they bring him back

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Tony'll be back, mark my words. In the meantime...anyone's guess is as good as mine. Pepper maybe? lol

Posted by etamogrey77

pepper or mainframe seem most likely but maybe rhodey will be iron man again that said it would be cool if it was havoc or ghost

Posted by ThePilot

Huh... I was going to make a joke about him looking like a tron character, but it looks like everyone else already has. Neat look though and I'll probably pick it up.

Posted by Yung ANcient One

Is his costume going to be like that? all TRON-ish? (+)

Posted by ssejllenrad

I'm getting sick of these Tron lines Marvel is quite fond of.

Posted by ahgunsillyo

So you're telling me that this storyline is about Tony Stark dealing with the aftermath of getting drunk and choosing to stop being Iron Man?

And you're telling me that James Rhodes has some awesome prototype Stark Resilient LifeVest or something or other?

Personally, my money's on Mrs. Arbogast being the new Iron Man. Clearly, that's the only logical outcome.

Posted by t_buzz

That suit is just, so, bleh. It may grow on me, but I really hope not.

Y'know, I'm pretty sure calling people stupid and imbeciles doesn't help your case. Plus saying it's "Tron" is a very good way to describe it. It's not that the glowing lines can only be tron, but it's something that we all easily recognize. It's like when everyone saw "The Spider". Everyone said "Spider-man" cause it's recognizable. Now go away.

I like the new suit.

 Who ever writes ironman must be stopped.

Iron man somehow managed to go into the tronverse acquire some of their tech!

Smh, this is why Larroca needs to head on over BACK to the X-titles, this Ironman crap isn't worthy enough for his art.

It's going to be Stane.

I'll put money on it.

No I won't, I don't actually care.

Posted by DoctorTrips

I think the main problem is the suit is trying to be modern and flashy without having any real substance. It's tweaked just enough to look like an Iron Man from a really boring future where everything is monochrome and glowing. A tweenager's view of cool. I think that if the character was going to actually last as Iron Man they might have put a little extra thought into the design. But let's be honest this new "secret" Iron Man will be probably be someone who everybody knows and take off the new suit once Tony can get back to doing whatever Tony does.

Posted by The_Peter_Cosmic

When does Iron Man 3 come out? Because that's when the new Iron Man "dies" and Tony comes back in a shocking twist.

Posted by Bitchgurl

Have lost interest in this title, and this does nothing to bring it back, TBH. I agree with the Tron comments by others as well. It looks really uninspired. This really the best Marvel can do?

Posted by awesomeoclock

The design looks really impractical /: I'm not sure I like the direction Fraction's been going on a lot of his series.

Posted by lorex

The design is different I will give them that. Thats about it though. I agree with previous posters that having a hero up an quit and be replaced is an old idea and has been used by Marvel for Tony Stark before. I wish they would try something new because we all know Tony will be back in the armoe sooner than later. As for the identity of the pilot well I hope they throw a twist and make it and alternate reality Tony or Tony's child from the future or something like that instead of Stark stepping down and someone else wearing his armor.

Posted by VictorGrey

The armor looks funny, unless if it's a stealth armor, it's impractical.

Didn't anybody read the last issue. Rhodey is pretending he's dead. It's Rhodey.

I don't even follow the book anymore and that was my guess. Based on what my friends told me about last issue. He's certainly prepared for it. And I don't see Fraction pulling a new character out of the aether.

@SuperKnightAL: If he throws ANY kind of returnable energy Disc..then oooo Yeah, TRON can fly!

So the Ravagers are Tron? Lol that's so retarded of a explanation. Tron had to do with computer programs. How come they just can't be costume with glowing neon lights? Are people so ignorant that sometime everyone looks even remotely similar to something they go "look it such & such". You going to tell me Luke Cage looks like Trayvon Martin now since they both wear hoodies or Moon Knight looks a racist or ghost costume since they wear white hoods. Maybe Black Panther looks like Batman or Deadpool looks like Deathstroke lol simpletons.

I really do like that armor design. I've been meaning to get back into Iron Man after I ditched it during Fear Itself.

i ditched iron man before fear just because i was tired of the same old same old but this probably a great reborn for the series/character. and also a really great design

Posted by frogjitsu

That new Iron Man looks sweet. It's a nice departure from the classic red and gold, but is it just me, or does this suit look oddly familiar to some of Salvador's earlier work?

Oh Snap! Havok is the new Iron Man!

Posted by KidSupreme

Nice artwork
