Excerpt from Marvel.com:

"Tony Stark is equal parts James Bond and Chuck Yeager--a pioneer, a test pilot, an engineer, an adrenaline junkie visionary," explains Fraction. "Iron Man is the ultimate achievement in what we, as humans, can become. He's not the product of cosmic rays or a radioactive spider. He is the triumph of human ingenuity over the frailty of the human form."

THE INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #1

Written by MATT FRACTION

Pencils & 50/50 Cover by SALVADOR LARROCA

50/50 Cover by JOE QUESADA

A bold new ongoing series for the biggest hero of 2008!

IRON MAN! You know you love him! And as the summer's most anticipated movie boot-jets its way into theaters, here's the perfect jumping-on point for new readers and Iron Man fans alike!

Tony Stark – Iron Man, billionaire industrialist and director of S.H.I.E.L.D. – faces the most overwhelming challenge of his life. Ezekiel Stane, the son of Tony's late business rival and archenemy Obadiah, has set his sights, his genius and his considerable fortune on the task of destroying Tony Stark and Iron Man. What's worse, he's got Iron Man tech, and he's every bit Iron Man's equal and opposite…except younger, faster, smarter…and immeasurably evil.

Matt Fraction! Not only is his name cool, but Immortal Iron Fist is great.

Oh yeah, pictures:

And...Marvel is having "Invincible Iron Man" week and there's an interview with Matt is coming up.

Enough with the relaunches. The current Iron Man hasn't even reached #30 yet. IMO there's no need for a relaunch if there isn't any major changes.

Or do as they do in some european countries and start each new year with a new #1.

It's a second monthly series, not a relaunch.

That's how it started but it looks like it became Iron Man: Director of SHIELD.

All these name changes, how annoying. But I will check out this first issue at least.

I can't wait. Larroca is one of my favorite artists, and Matt Fraction seems to have a great handle on the character. I also like that this series will focus more on Iron Man as a superhero while the other title will continue the espionage/spy thriller angle with Stark as Director of SHIELD.

Anyone think The Order might play some role (however minor) in this? Pepper looks like she still has on her gear.

Larocca has lost his finishing edge in comparison to his earlier stuff.

There's gotta be someone that read this issue.. Diamond comics sold out of this issue. But yeah, I'm liking it so far. For some reason I don't see him as a douche anymore... maybe the movie brainwashed me or something but still a good issue so far.

I was thinking the same thing about the douche factor, I van't believe it, but I think I actually respect him now.

As for the comic, I read it, and I thought it was alright, I don't think the order will have much to do with it. I believe they will play more of a big role as the new class for Avengers: Initiative. As for Pep with her Order gear, I figure that it was just convenient for Stark to have his assistant connected to the world similar to the way he is to streamline things. I have a feeling Pep is off of the order.

I really liked the issue. Seems like it's coming right out of both the Order and the movie by having Ezekiel Stane (really though? Zebediah? Obadiah? Ezekiel?) carry over his attacks on Stark into this book. And like the Armor Wars, they've given Stark a threat that's specifically his (on a couple levels) and also manages to be pretty cool/scary. Also, the SHIELD suit, I want one.

What I meant was, I don't think she's going to follow them to Camp Hammond.
