He has a twin brother! Wait... That's been done hasn't it?

I really have no idea what Secret Origin could be hidden behind the Iron Avenger.

He was actually visited by his future self as a child which helped sculpt him into becoming the genius/billionaire/playboy/philanthropist we all know and love.

Is this Iron Man and not a mini series? Does that mean Greg Land is off the book? Finally?

@Mr. Kamikaze: Not necessarily. Just as David Marquez is doing three issues of ALL-NEW X-MEN because of the twice-a-month schedule.

He's actually a bioengineered machine implanted into a surrogate mothers womb. I mean have we ever really seen much of his mother? It's always about the father. :p

1) Get rid of Kieron gillen off all ironman books

2) Who needs an updated secret origins? again!

3) anyone notice gillen was using a re-hash extremis story for his first arc... now he's repeating another story we've all heard before

4) Please Marvel, don't let disney ruin iron man just so it suck more money out of dumb popcorn eating filming going audience

His father programmed him as a baby. Tony Stark is truly a machine

Does the secret origin involve a new artist. I know drawing comic books is very difficult, but you have to find the right artist... etc...

It probably has something to do with Howard Stark and tie into Hickman's SHIELD, maybe?

Sigh, I really hope this isn't one of those stories with false revelations eg. that Tony has secretly been Iron Man from childhood, or that his father was the first Iron Man or some similar rubbish.

yah turns out Tony's dad is a time displaced version of HERBIE the robot and his mother is an alternate reality female version of RHINO. who knew?

btw does anyone else think the diaper looks a little... full at the back? IRON DOOKIE

I don't know iron Man that well, but how much of the relationship with his father and him starting Stark that are prestented in Iron Man 2 is from the comics? If there is not much here, maybe they could work on this topic. However that creates the hole problem Tony Stark making the suit in Vietnam (even though the time and place has probably been Retrocon).

This sounds interesting. I'll wait for reviews before I plop down the cash for it, though.
