I think Tony Stark will die at the end of Avengers vs. X-Men.
The cover for #12 seems to show him leading the charge against the Phoenix Force, and as conversation between he and the Panther shows he is not only willing to, but is almost hoping to, die to stop the Phoenix.
I see the new armor Iron Man is supposed to be sporting in Marvel NOW! and I couldn't help but notice the color.
Does anyone else remember a certain armored avenger of the MC2 Universe that went by Mainframe?
Could Tony Stark die at the end of AvX and be replaced by an armor that he programmed with his brain patterns?
