Me also. Not that that I mind him being in space. It's just him being on the team that bothers me. It will be worse if he leads it.

Wasnt this announced last month? Or was it only on the Iron Man Liveblog?

That helmet is fugly.

Also from the preview it looks like a set up for a Star Wars crossover. I wouldnt be surprised since Disney went on a nice spending spree.

I have been liking so far Gillen's run but this direction isn't catching me.

It's even worse that the GotG are going to be an Earth based team now because Bendis thinks "space is  unrelatable" that's like totally against what the Guardians stand for.

I think the helmet makes him look like a transformer. So I agree with you.

I'm interested in the direction they're taking him in though.

Gillen's run on Iron Man so far has done absolutely nothing for me...which is a shame, cause I loved Fraction's run before him. I'm hoping the new arc or something in the close future clicks for me and makes me enjoy it more...but as of right now, bored to tears with Iron Man.

I totally agree. They were not about one corner of the universe it was the larger universe. It's dumb to say it wasn't relatable because you still basically deal with the same things. Love, betrayal, fighting the bad guy, wars, death. Nothing that was done in the past was so far out you couldn't relate to it in some way. What they are doing is taking an aspect away from the book which is how the universe is so much bigger and how it doesn't revolve around Earth. Earth is just a small speck in the universe.

Exactly. the GotG would protect Earth just as much as they would Halla or Xandar or even one of the Skrull homeworlds and if just the idea of "space" is unrelatible then why are all the past cosmic stuff so popular?

Oh I cry your pardon gunslinger. No Iron Man wont be leading, Bendis says Star Lord is the "Captain Kirk" of the Marvel Universe. It's a shame he wan't be using his mask anymore as well.

agreed he looked much cooler in his old uniform

The art is actually good

Posted by Lt_Cmdr_Kicker

wouldn't it have made more sense for them to give him the black & gold colour scheme for his space suit rather than his mainstream one? this is beginning to piss me off

@Jonny_Anonymous: Man Bendis said that? For years I've always hated when people say that Marvel is better than DC because Marvel characters are "relateable" and i would always think about how stupid that argument is because if something is written well enough then it will be relateable. And now Bendis pulls this crap line? Hey your a high ranking member of a company nicknamed the "House of Ideas" If you can't space "relateable" quit and hire someone who can.

Tony looks like the Flash now...

Too bad Greg Land is still s***.

"Many fans of the character have been enjoying Tony Stark in Marvel NOW!'s Iron Man series"

Really? I was under the impression that Iron Man is the worst Marvel NOW! title out there. I haven't read it personally though, so I wouldn't know.

@Jonny_Anonymous said:

Same...he just doesn't fit with the rest of the team. I'm willing to give it a chance though. It also serves to connect newcomers of the Guardians of the Galaxy to the more mainstream, recognizable characters of the Marvel Universe. Also, knowing Marvel, it's probably a way to create more synergy between the comics and the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film and their likely appearance in Avengers 2.

Hmmm, something about that art is just off to me ::shrugs:: Nice direction to head for space but if the art continues like this, I think the spectacle behind it will be lost!

Go, Go Iron Ranger!!!!

I LOVE Gillen's work. Iron Man is my favorite character.

I can't stand this book. A new direction might be what this book needs. Or maybe this whole Guardians of the Galaxy thing will completely destroy him.

WHAT IS HAPPENING TO MY STARKY STARK!

@JakeN7: GotG aren't newcomers they'v been about for years and they don't need to connect with the more mainstream books, the point was to say "hay it's not just earth that has superheroes, come and check the rest of the universe"
Posted by BritishMonkey

So Thor has "The God Butcher", Stark has "God-Killer"...

Is Cap going to get "God Slayer"? Captain Marvel with "God Hunter"?

What I meant when I said "It also serves to connect newcomers of the Guardians of the Galaxy" was that it will help people that are new to the Guardians of the Galaxy or haven't ever read any of their comics. Not that the team was new themselves.

Besides, the reboot of the team has only been around for four years. Ever since Annihilation: Conquest in 2008. It's my understanding that the original incarnation of the team from 1969 has nothing to do with the current re-booted team, and didn't even take place in the main Marvel Universe.

Ironman space armor is the LAMEST thing i've ever seen!....FAIL!!!

Posted by Azrael66

Getting ready to inject Iron Man into Guardians of the Galaxy in preparation for the movie!

Marvel loves their movie-based comics these days!

Posted by Barubal10

Been reading since the first issue, hopefully things start to pick up and stop being boring with this issue.

So, when is Land leaving the series? :)

Posted by Mrfuzzynutz

Holy S@*!! That WAS Iron man in the Guardian of the Galaxy Promos?!

Posted by Teerack

I think this will be cool, but i'm worried to see how earth will handle a world with no Tony Stark.

Posted by DH69

Lets see in the last 3 issues theres been a cult of chicks wearin nothin but toga's, a party with topless sunbathers...at night, and tons of traces and reused model...yep that seems like greg land to me, gotta love marvels golden boy *eye roll*

I'm really digging this series so far because of the writing, but seeing the art is just disappointing every single time. If he goes to space, then that might limit the number of humans he interacts with, and that can only be a plus in the art category. Maybe he will find a race of clones who have developed odd facial habits, Greg Land can do that, write to the artist's strengths Kieron!

Posted by Jtrinidad

NICE!

Posted by haydenclaireheroes

I am still probably going to skip on this series. It needs a lot of improvements

Posted by Kyle_Dornez

Iron Man + GotG? That's... incredibly weird... And I thought that spontaneously resurrected Star-Lord was going to rip-off Tony's armor...

When I was younger their was a cartoon series where when Optimus Prime wasn't fighting his front mouth protector piece wouldn't be on his face and his face kind of looked like Iron-man's face here. But its just my opinion.
