Title: Superior Iron Man
Post by: Perry on September 02, 2014, 07:27:23 PM
So after the AXIS event, it looks like Tony will go the Superior route as well. Now I am not sure if Tony will just be more of an ass or if there will be another person inside of Tony (IE: Doc Oc in Peter for Superior Spider-Man), but with the idea of AXIS being, from what I garner, the evil guys switching bodies with the non-evil guys, I am assuming (we all know what that can get ya) that it will be an evil guy 'inside the suit', as it were.

Soooo, who is the guy in the mask for Superior Iron Man?

Red Skull? Kinda the main evil guy here in Remender's AXIS and Uncanny Avengers
Mandarin? Tony's most recognizable baddie
Madam Masque? Always a good time when the two masked lovers get together, so what better way to get together?  :D
Blizzard? Living Laser? Whiplash? Spymaster? Tony himself and the bad guy switch is not the thing?

What say you guys. Who will be Tony?

Edit - Not that I am going to buy this. I have no interest in Iron Man anymore. Fraction was perfection during his run, however. Everyone should read that !!!!

Fraction's Iron Man: A "Perry Recommended Comic" or PRC if you will
:D

It would have to be someone smart enough to keep the suits running.  Bruce Banner?

Well, from the interviews read, something during Axis causes Tony to 'unlearn what he has learned' is the gist I got out of it. So, he'll become a bit of the playboy egomaniac without the heart of gold that he was before the original bomb put shrapnel in his chest.

And besides; Tony is his own worst villain.  8)

I'm...curious about this. Tom Taylor (Earth-2) is writing this, so maybe? As long as it's not Kieron Gillen. Reading his stuff online, and I don't fall under the 'Impressed' category with it.

what Jimmy said...it is Tony (no mind or body switch) returned to his Ego driven roots.  its got to be better than Gillen which has been lack luster and a bit convoluted for no particular reason.  He also missed a great chance to tie his Recorder story into a past storyline which would have added additional validity to his outlandish story.  There was a run in IM in the late 70s early 80s where a Recorder was hanging with tony (and Jack of Hearts) for an extended time...could have easily linked those stories with a slight mention just to prove the depth of this Recorders ambitions and tracking/manipulating of Tony's activities.

I'm a complete IM sucker as he is one of the 1st characters i followed not a fan of the Tony bashing and deconstruction that he's been subjected to since Civil War (he was right :) ).  I prefer my Tony as a good guy, not the root of all evil or a scapegoat for bad storytelling decisions.

I go along with "Tony is his own worst enemy" line of thinking.

However, going along with this body switching stuff for fun...

Maybe Howard Stark's "real" son?  Is that still a thing they're sticking to?  I'm only going by what little I've heard about this current IM story, I haven't read it so I might be way off.

Last time we saw Justin Hammer he was "dead."  Frozen in a block of ice somewhere in space.  Before being frozen he was dying from some fatal disease.  Perhaps Hammer Industries saved his mind to place in Stark's body.
