Iron Man 2020 Descends On The Marvel Universe

Recommended Posts

In 1984, the Iron Man of 2020 visited from the future in MACHINE MAN #2. Now, decades later, that future has arrived! Just announced at the Marvel Comics: Next Big Thing Panel at New York Comic-Con, IRON MAN 2020 kicks off in January and begins an event that will redefine one of Marvel’s most iconic heroes!

Recent teasers have hinted at the tragic fate of Tony Stark, and now readers will see his long-lost brother, Arno Stark, take over as Iron Man. How he tackles the responsibilities that come with being the armored Avenger will have monumental effects on the Marvel Universe. Dan Slott and Christos Gage, a superstar duo of longtime Marvel writers, have crafted an Iron Man saga for the ages, and with art by the incomparable Pete Woods, this is an event that was worth waiting decades for!

“Like the inexorable turning of pages on a calendar, we’ve been building up to the arrival of 2020 and the advent of Arno Stark as Iron Man ever since this latest run began,” says Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “Here, all of the larger themes we’ve been playing with will come to the fore in a big, sweeping, epic action movie that anyone can enjoy!”

This 6-issue series will also continue to raise thought-provoking questions about what it means to be an artificial intelligence. As the story unfolds, expect to see your favorite Marvel robotic characters from Vision and Jocasta to Albert and Elsie-Dee in what’s shaping up to be a true “Robot Revolution.” Also keep an eye out for upcoming announcements about the exciting tie-ins that will accompany this epic event featuring some of your favorite armored characters!

I like the design. At least it's not the same character.

I personally like it. Strong supporting cast (Machine Man is part of it since almost the beginning) and good use of rogues gallery. Plot elements are a bit wacky, like robot ethicism or a virtual reality inside where everything is pretty much magic, but it's the Marvel Universe, so it's not the weirdest thing ever. Tony's personality is also a bit cartoony, but ever since Bendis wrote him I just gave in to the fact that'd be Tony's default personality going forward. Main artist is Valerio Schiti so it's a treat for the eyes, too.

Not the same in 2020. This is tonya brother.  The original was from an alternate "future" and was tony cousin.

But yes machine man is in it as jocasta radical boyfriend

    • Right. I don't remember anyone having a problem with Bucky replacing Cap (don't get me started on how many Captain America's there were before the ridiculous Sam controversy- even the Red Skull bodysnatched Cap for a time), or the blonde Black Widow, the Crimson Dynamo, Union Jack, Red Hulks, need I go on. There's nothing in this announcement that says Jack Russell terrier is being wiped out in favor of this new guy. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if they end up having both werewolves cross paths.
    • Looking at that Crossbones figure, I think the head is sitting way too high on the neck peg. Once I get it, I'll just Dremel the hole in the head a bit deeper & that should fix the Giraffe issue. These are due to hit the pegs sometime in March?

    • When MARVELS SNAPSHOTS begins in March, fans will get to see Marvel's greatest characters from the Golden Age to today, in new legendary tales told through the eyes of ordinary people! As curator of this landmark series, Kurt Busiek has handpicked the creative teams for each standalone, double-sized issue and he’s put together an amazing assemblage of talent to tackle April’s issues focusing on Captain America and the X-Men. First up, Eisner nominated writer Mark Russell will revisit Jack Kirby’s classic Madbomb storyline from his 1970s run on CAPTAIN AMERICA. “Some people, when they call, you gotta pick up the phone. And Kurt Busiek is one of those people,” says Russell. “I was pretty instantly sold on the project once he started describing it to me— stories about the human cost of these famous conflicts in the Marvel Universe. I truly enjoyed working on this with him.” Known for his work on books like Second Coming and Wonder Twins, Russell says MARVELS SNAPSHOT: CAPTAIN AMERICA will focus on “the Madbomb's impact in the South Bronx, a community which had already been effectively abandoned by the rest of the nation, that community's struggle for survival, and of the search for heroes of its own.” He will be joined by acclaimed artist Ramón Pérez(ALL-NEW HAWKEYE). Next, in X-MEN: MARVELS SNAPSHOT, readers will see the rise of super heroes from the eyes of a young orphan named Scott Summers, the boy who would grow up to be Cyclops. The future X-Men leader couldn’t be in safer hands. Jay Edition, the co-host of the popular X-Men podcast, Jay and Miles X-Plain the X-Men, makes his Marvel Comics debut with a tale about one of his favorite characters. “This is a story that's pretty personal to me—because I'm me, and it's a Cyclops story; but even more because it's about the ways that superheroes and the stories around them can become lifelines. If I'm going to be really sappy about it (which I absolutely am), I get to give one of my favorite heroes the same kind of touchstone he's been to me over the years,” says Edidin. “I'd say it's a dream come true, but given that I'm the kind of uptight overachiever who overidentifies with Scott Summers in the first place, maybe also a bit of an anxiety dream come true. That said, it's been a blast to get to sit down and play in a sandbox I've spent years cataloguing and analyzing and explaining." Teaming up with Edidin will be artist Tom Reilly, a rising star artist known for his recent work on Immortal Hulk. Don’t miss this grand celebration of Marvel’s legacy that’s sure to be an instant favorite for True Believers old and new.
