Iron Man - Written by Robin Laws, art by Michael Ryan. The adventures of billionaire industrialist and publicly known superhero Tony Stark.
The Hell?!?!?When did Tony reveil he was Iron Man?And please tell me they didn't do it in some stupid way.
Unfortunately, I can't.
While I don't mind the way in which it happened, many Iron Man fans have complained about the way it was done.
I wasn't reading the book myself at the time, so not certain on all of the details, but here's what I seem to recall from the quick browse I gave it:
After an underwater adventure, Stark is left on a fishing boat in armor, with the mask open.
After he recovers, he realizes his identity is going to be blown, if not now, eventually.
So he decides he's going to reveal it himself, and calls a press conference, without telling anyone what it's about.
Before he has a chance to make his announcement, though, he sees a dog about to get hit by a car (or truck, not important... moving vehicle), and jumps off a balcony to rescue it, revealing in the process his armour.
After the rescue, he talks to the press.
Since then, his identity has been public knowledge, both in his own title, and in Avengers.
Personally, however it was done, I feel it was a good move. I'm not an anti-secret identity guy, but there are some secret identities that I have long felt could or should be disposed of, and the Stark/Iron Man secret was one of them.
It always struck me as odd, and was even pointed out in a pre-Mini Marvels Bullpin Bits strip (short three-panel comic strips that ran on the old Soap Box pages before they got dumped, written and illustrated by Chris Giarusso), that the man with the most high profile bodyguard on the planet was almost never seen in the presence of said bodyguard, and that the bodyguard would yet somehow arrive almost everytime Stark was threatened, at the same time as Stark somehow disappeared from the scene, and NOBODY EVER CAUGHT ON!
It's not like Peter Parker/Spider-Man: Peter has some low-level fame in terms of name recognition in the Marvel universe, as the guy who took all those Spidey pics, but he's not a public figure.
Everywhere Stark goes, pretty much, the press is going to be watching. So would his competitors. It was inevitable that someone would catch on to the secret.
And why did it need to be a secret in the first place? Iron Man's foes still knew to attack Stark and Stark's friends, because that's who Iron Man was supposed to protect, so again, it's not the Peter Parker thing of protecting the innocent family and friends.
Nor does the secret allow him to relax into a normal life: if he's not known as Iron Man, he's still known as the scientific genius and billionaire celebrity figure who hangs around with an Avenger, and finances the rest of them.
It allows him to ditch any pretense of not understanding science and other subjects as he frequently did before, in order to cover the secret, as the fictional hireling inside the suit wouldn't be expected to know that stuff.
A few of the characters whose identities are either publicly known, or at the very least no longer secret (as in, maybe not everybody has heard, but anybody who was interested could find out easily).
Bishop (sort of)
Daredevil (sort of: has been outed, but continues to publicly deny)
Human Torch II
Presumably several other X-Men's identities can easily be found out, now that the Xavier Institute's connection to the group is publicly known.
Several supervillians' names are public record, as well.
