I've got an Iron Man figure from Hot Toys on my shelf. It's 1:6 scale, and is worth a couple hundred bucks. This one is 1:1 scale, and costs almost $US8000 ($10,562).
Every issue of Unbeatable Squirrel Girl opens with a credits page that is also a look into Doreen Green's social media life, as she chats with friends and fellow superheroes about her adventures. But those social media accounts don't just exist in the pages of comics, but on actual Twitter too, and guys, they're pretty dang good.
Iron Man's replacement in Marvel's current comics, Riri Williams, was an MIT student before she started flying high as the Invincible Ironheart. So it's pretty damn awesome that a group of her real-life alumni have made their own fan film about the young hero and her life at the university.
There might be Team Tony and Team Carol, and there might even have been distractions like Hawkeye vs Bruce Banner, but we've known from the get go that Civil War II would all boil down to one almighty clash: Iron Man vs Captain Marvel. That major scrap might already be over though, if the latest issue is anything to go by.
Tony Stark's future in the Marvel Universe has been thrown into doubt ever since the start of Civil War II — and made even more doubtful when we learned that he would be replaced as Iron Man by not one, but two different characters. One of those Iron Men debuted today in Infamous Iron Man, giving us a major hint about Tony's fate.
Whose side is Justin Trudeau on in Civil War II? Is the Prime Minister of Canada, making his comic book debut today in Civil War II: Choosing Sides #5, Team Tony or Team Carol? Turns out, he's neither. He's Team Justin Trudeau Doesn't Give a Shit About Your Superhero Infighting Nonsense.
Civil War II has already been about making some pretty bad choices. But when it comes to a close, the leaders of either side of the conflict are going to make an even worse choice than the ones that lead to Civil War II in the first place: Trusting the not-so-trustworthy-at-the-moment Steve Rogers.
Doctor Doom is one of the two new people taking on the role of Iron Man in this spring's "Marvel Now!" lineup, and to do so, he's getting his own suit of Iron Man armour. In true Doom style, it's been remade in his own image — and it's a pretty awesome mash-up of Doctor Doom and Iron Man's designs that really, really works.
Yesterday, Marvel announced that Tony Stark would be walking away from his latest suit of power armour. His replacement is going to be Riri Williams, a genius MIT student who isn't old enough to drink yet. (So no "Demon in a Bottle" storyline for her, I guess.)
It looked like Riri Williams was going to be the next War Machine, taking the spot of the recently deceased James Rhodes. But it turns out that the subplot involving the teenage genius will be going somewhere else entirely. Marvel says that Riri will be wearing red-and-gold power armour soon and becoming an Iron Person.
Earlier last week we posted part of Evan's chat with Brian Michael Bendis, a five-time Eisner award winner and a long-standing writer for Marvel Comics. In the full interview, Bendis talks about his early career, the difference between the Powers TV show and the comics, Jessica Jones, the second Civil War, story grenades and much, much more.
