Marvel comics announces Superior Iron Man

The Avengers shake up continues with Superior Iron Man, which gives fans the same man in the suit, but with a whole new (old) attitude.

Marvel is proud to announce the release of Superior Iron Man #1 by series writer Tom Taylor (Injustice: Gods Among Us) and series artist Yildiray Çinar (Supergirl). Beginning in November 2014, Tony Stark will give into his ego and return to his billionaire playboy roots of self-obsession and superficiality.

Senior Editor Mark “Panic” Paniccia says, “What’s fun about Superior Iron Man is we get to see Tony Stark in a different mode. He’s very much like he was before Iron Man’s origin, before Tony became a Super Hero…a narcissistic, selfish profiteer. And Tom Taylor is having a blast with this personality, giving us an Iron Man that is bound to ruffle some fans’ feathers but will secretly—I think—find to be a guilty pleasure.”

“He’s self-obsessed. Cunning. Superficial. Superior,” explains writer Tom Taylor. “He has given Extremis to the people. Extremis can now be downloaded as a mobile app through any smart device in San Francisco and this creates Tony’s idea of a Utopia, which he is very happy to be at the heart of. But not everyone is buying Tony’s Paradise.

Superior Iron Man will also feature recent “City by the Bay” transplant – Daredevil!

“Daredevil may be blind but he can see the cracks in Stark’s Brave New World,” says Taylor. “In a way this is all an allegory for the technology that now rules our lives. The corruption that comes from this technology and the dependence we each have on it.”

Superior Iron Man #1 will be available this November in all local comic book retailers and available in the Marvel Digital Comics Store.

Well at least it’s still Tony in the Iron Man suit. Seriously though, if you know me, then you probably know that I’m not really a fan of the recent Avengers alterations that Marvel Comics has been making. The new Thor and Captain America are interesting, but I’m a fan of these iconic heroes as they’ve been- the way that made them into the instantly recognizable figures that they are.

So with that, I’m not totally upset by this as (lets face it) Tony always has been something of a ego-maniac hasn’t he? I mean, it does sound like Marvel is taking his biggest personality flaw to the extreme here in Superior, but it’s still Stark through and through. I don’t really like the sound of him being an almost-villain though, but we’ll see how that shakes out in the long run and just how involved Daredevil will be in the series. Also, what does all this mean for Iron Man’s status as an Avenger? And why the sudden shift in personality? That could be interesting too.

See what happens when Superior Iron Man #1 hits the racks this November.
