Iron Man goes up against one of Thor’s biggest villains as Malekith looks to grab all ten of the Mandarin’s rings for his own.
This March, Iron Man battles for his life against supernatural forces unlike anything he’s ever faces when the blockbuster new story arc “Rings of the Mandarins” kicks off in IRON MAN #23.NOW! From blockbuster writer Kieron Gillen and red-hot artist Luke Ross comes an Iron Man epic that will be remembered for the ages!
The powerful Mandarin Rings have surfaced, seeking new hosts. For months, Tony has clashed against new enemies possessing the destructive powers of one of Iron Man’s greatest foes. But while the rings search for new hosts – a deadly foe seeks to claim all ten for his own!
Malekith the Accursed seeks their power, and with an army of Dark Elves at his back he may just have the power to do it! When a single ring possesses the power to level cities, how can Tony face off against all ten? Thankfully, he’ll find help in the most unlikely of places. But even the help of Marvel UK’s Dark Angel and his brother Arno may not be enough to stop the cataclysmic power of Malekith!
It’s the world’s most cutting edge science versus the most arcane science known to man when Iron Man squares off against Malekith and his armies this Marhc! Don’t miss the start of the brand new arc that will have everyone talking when Rings of the Mandarins kicks off in IRON MAN 23.NOW!
Marvel has a pretty cool little mash-up going here with Malekith and Iron Man. Not just a simple crossover either, this one’s got the Dark Elf king seeking to take over Mandarin’s spot as the wielder of the ten rings. That’s just cool and something that you really don’t see too often when you go outside of a hero’s more usual rogues gallery.
It’s also pretty cool to see Dark Angel popping up and, of course, the Arno ‘thing’ continues here too. There’s a lot going on in Iron Man #23.NOW, so if you blink on this one, you’re going to miss a ton. Catch it when the issue hits stands on March 19th from Kieron Gillen and Luke Ross.
