With the launch of Marvel NOW! it seems that Mr. Tony Stark is getting more than his fair share of the limelight. The iron-cladded hero is starring in three of the major team books currently, and yet to be, released. Specifically, Avengers, New Avengers, and Guardians of the Galaxy. Now, I've never been a stickler for continuity but being on three teams, one that takes place on Earth, one in the other galaxies, and one dealing with both Earth and outer space... it seems a bit much for Iron Man, no? I don't know, maybe it's because I'm not such a huge fan of the character, but I don't know how I feel about him taking up a spot on every roster.

Maybe it's Robert Downey, Jr. or maybe it was Matt Fraction's run but Iron Man is starting to become so popular that soon he'll be able to rival Wolverine in appearances. How do you guys feel about this? Do you like more iron in your comic books?

I think Iron Man shouldn't take ALL the spotlight! There won't be enough left for WAR MACHINE to do! Seriously! Jim Rhodes needs some love too!
