The Invincible Iron Man Debuts In May...


...And Marvel.Com Has Your First Look

Oh look, another new Iron Man comic.  It's been sooo hard for me to read Iron Man.  I just have not been all that interested in his comics.  Extremis, return of Mandarin, I'm not even sure what's going on.  I don't think it has anything to do with his jerkiness or being responsible for the Death of Steve Rogers.  They just seem boring.  I find him more interesting in Mighty Avengers and even Captain America.  It's like all his other comic appearances are more interesting.  I just can't put my finger on it.  I used to really enjoy the comic.  I'm tallking 80s and 90s.  I am looking forward to the movie and hopefully this will redeem my opinion of him.  I do really really like Matt Fraction's writing.  And who doesn't like Salvador Larocca?  So this Iron Man series at least has that going for it.


On May 2nd, fans around the world will experience the summer’s most anticipated film of the year—Iron Man—but that’s not the only big news for fans of the armored avenger as THE INVINCIBLE IRON MAN debuts!
