Bendis: "The world knows what riri can so, so immediately she becomes the most important thing in the universe with ALL hero teams coming to make her a member of their teams already. Memo to myself: Tell cover artist to make cover with every hero imaginable, that's all that matters. It must scream look at me. Totally main marvel universe." *Bendis wipes his ass with the original appearreance of the x-men flushes it down and leaves the toilet stand to do some actual work or rather check out the marvel tv and movie schedule so he knows what titles to take over from more competent writers a year before the release, that will turn the books into sure sellers he doesn't have to put any work in.*

*enters with a pile of spider-man comics from before his time on the book and sits down on the toilet* Slott: "Yeah, this is gonna be number two. That will buy me the ten minutes I need for an ASM-script."

This is Iron Man? No wonder Marvel is the butt of all these jokes.

NO! Mary Jane belongs to Spider Man. GET HER OUT of there. LEAVE her in limbo cause I'd rather she do nothing than be in Iron Man or in Slott's devil may care hands.

Was she in this? Isn't that Pepper?

While the sales numbers for this title continue to look high on the comiccron report, the number of copies sitting on the 3 LCS I visit on the regular is deep.

That's the problem with Comiccron, it only reflects what the retailers order, not what sells. You have to wonder if the titles were switched and Doom headlined Invincible while Riri headlined Infamous if the numbers for both titles wouldn't be exactly the same...

Doesn't matter, Marvel has been doing me a favor by swapping out my favorite characters for replacements. I'm not worried about the "gap" in my Hulk collection until that terrible book (I really tried to like it, its just so hard to like Cho in this role...) gets reset and the gap in my Iron Man collection is only helping (Thanks for re-numbering every new series! No more gotta catch em all drive!") my new DC buying surge.

Man, Superman and Nightwing are just the shizz... right now. Every Batman title is great. Flash is great. Deathstroke is great. Teen Titans is great. Twice a month with great writing and consistent art? Take my money WB!

Don't know if you're speaking in general, but the redhead there is Pepper, not MJ.

You misunderstand, MJ is inside the armor. Unless the girl below me is not MJ which looks like her considering the hairstyle.

@ursaber: I see, but um still... Last issue MJ was clearly shown not being in the armor (Also I doubt that would be revealed in the preview like that). And the suit just got absorbed there, they would've shown MJ falling (Plus she wouldn't be shown from that "inside the armor" perspective). lol

That is the villain inside the other armor (the gigantic one who just absorbed Tony's old armor), Tomoe. Check the dialogue. She says "The great Tony Stark returns", then in your scan she realizes "it's not Tony" but instead a virus, then her armor gets 'infected'.

Yeah. That's Tomoe. From the previous Invincible Iron-Man run with Bendis. She's a villain that Tony Stark and James Rhodes fought.

MJ is a pretty boss character who stands up in any book. I actually don't mind her in Iron Man cause it reminds me of before Civil War back when Spider-Man was good.

Yeah, MJ is a boss, or used to be before devil deals became common. It also reminds me that she's working for the guy who betrayed the superhero community and initiated a manhunt for her and her husband.

True. The preview alone gives away the entire story.

I have lost all respect for Woman and Iron Man. Comics in Marvel anyway.

Well i dont know why but nearly all of the new marvel Heroines are based from Ripley and characters from Scandal, How to get away with Murder and Grey's Anatomy.

I feel bad they left other female characters behind. like Madame Web(Julia Carpenter) i mean that's a big deal character and role.
