Meh another updated origin

Posted by The Stegman

Probably something to do with his father.

Posted by sora_thekey

He has a twin brother! Wait... That's been done hasn't it?

I really have no idea what Secret Origin could be hidden behind the Iron Avenger.

Posted by Outside_85

He has a villain who has eyes on the sides of his or her head!

Posted by DDangelico

Shouldn't the big news be that perhaps Greg Land is off the book!?! :-)

Maybe I'll be picking this up soon!

best guess

Edited by Spideycap

He was actually visited by his future self as a child which helped sculpt him into becoming the genius/billionaire/playboy/philanthropist we all know and love.

Is this Iron Man and not a mini series? Does that mean Greg Land is off the book? Finally?

Posted by G-Man

@Mr. Kamikaze: Not necessarily. Just as David Marquez is doing three issues of ALL-NEW X-MEN because of the twice-a-month schedule.

I'll wait for reviews before I express my excitement

Posted by YourCounterpoint

Nothing. We'll learn nothing.

Iron Baby?

the silver age must have found a way out of that wormhole we put it in. (J/K)

He's actually a bioengineered machine implanted into a surrogate mothers womb. I mean have we ever really seen much of his mother? It's always about the father. :p

This made me laugh, baby Tony Stark.

Posted by haydenclaireheroes

I kind of want to read this story arc even though I already dropped this series from my pull list

Posted by Novemberx2

1) Get rid of Kieron gillen off all ironman books

2) Who needs an updated secret origins? again!

3) anyone notice gillen was using a re-hash extremis story for his first arc... now he's repeating another story we've all heard before

4) Please Marvel, don't let disney ruin iron man just so it suck more money out of dumb popcorn eating filming going audience

Posted by Gonzo33

No more Greg Land? And the whole Comic Vine community let out a collective sigh of relief. Haha

Posted by TDK_1997

This could be interesting.

Posted by GothamRed

Iron baby, he makes our dreams come true

Posted by Loki9876

@Gonzo33: he I din't notice high five

Posted by regrivett

His father programmed him as a baby. Tony Stark is truly a machine

Posted by alex6166

Does the secret origin involve a new artist. I know drawing comic books is very difficult, but you have to find the right artist... etc...

Posted by DJ1107

No more Greg Land?

HALLELUJA!!!!! I can finally enjoy Iron man again.

Posted by iLLituracy

It probably has something to do with Howard Stark and tie into Hickman's SHIELD, maybe?

Posted by LeaderVladimir

Baby! Let's get the Avengers to babysit Tony! Keep him away from the alcohol, I mean, milk.

Posted by Herx

ok, if this is the cover their going for I expect the first words to be "When a mommy and a Daddy love each other VEEEEERY much......" If not then it's truly a missed oppertunity :P

+ Baby super heroes just = cool (i mean just look at the DC silver age :P)

Posted by G_Money_Christmas

Baby Tony needs a diaper change

Posted by entee

This may be the greatest thing Greg Land's ever drawn

Posted by Inverno


Posted by AmazingWebHead

You don't say. This'll be interesting.

Posted by JamesKM716

Gillen's writing?

I'll pass.

Posted by Video_Martian

Aww, iron baby <3

Posted by Prodigy P

Sigh, I really hope this isn't one of those stories with false revelations eg. that Tony has secretly been Iron Man from childhood, or that his father was the first Iron Man or some similar rubbish.

Posted by Teerack

He's a clone of his dad!?!?!?!

Edited by kid Apollo

yah turns out Tony's dad is a time displaced version of HERBIE the robot and his mother is an alternate reality female version of RHINO. who knew?

btw does anyone else think the diaper looks a little... full at the back? IRON DOOKIE

Posted by tupiaz

I don't know iron Man that well, but how much of the relationship with his father and him starting Stark that are prestented in Iron Man 2 is from the comics? If there is not much here, maybe they could work on this topic. However that creates the hole problem Tony Stark making the suit in Vietnam (even though the time and place has probably been Retrocon).

Posted by tgoldberg

This sounds interesting. I'll wait for reviews before I plop down the cash for it, though.

Posted by ARMIV2

What else could you do with Tony Stark's origin?

Posted by Vincie_Pooh

Haha he is realted to Howard the Duck, or he has a brother like in the other universe... Or!? We are in the Matrix.

but what else can you do to him?
