Tony isn’t the only one in armor in Armor Wars #1, the newest tie-in for Secret Wars… actually, everybody in the city has some.
This June, suit up and strap in as the Secret Wars bring you to a tecno-utopia, with a dark and sinister secret! Today, Marvel is pleased to present your new look at ARMOR WARS #1 – a brand new Secret Wars series from Eisner-award winning writer James Robinson and artist Marcio Takara! Deep in the heart of Battleworld lies Technopolis. A shining beacon of progress for all Battleworld to see. Full of science and wonder created by the two genius brothers – Tony and Arno Stark. Yet shadows fall over this armored paradise. A unique disease that forces EVERYONE to wear armor just to live and breathe! And when an unexpected murder strikes his domain, Baron Tony Stark must race against the clock to identify the culprit. But is he too late to stop more bodies from showing up? The mechanical murder mystery that will have readers guessing to the very last page kicks off this June inARMOR WARS #1!
Interesting twist on the classic crossover event isn’t it? This isn’t your daddy’s Armor Wars, not by a long shot and that’s just one of the changes to the story for Secret Wars as we get a look at this alternate history version of the Marvel Universe. One thing about these tie-in books though, they kind of make you want to know more about the universes that these stories came from since we’ve never seen most of them before.
Actually, Marvel could just spin a weekly anthology book out of Secret Wars if they wanted to, when the whole thing is said and done. Maybe feature a different ‘universe’ every week. Might be kind of awesome. While that’s just an idea that I’m tossing out there though, Armor Wars is most definitely a reality and will be heading to the racks from James Robinson and Marcio Takara on May 27th.
