On the eve of the character’s 60th anniversary, Iron Man will begin a new era this December. Writer Gerry Duggan (X-Men) and artist Juan Frigeri (Avengers) will kick off a new run of IRON MAN’s solo title that will bring Tony Stark to his darkest depths only to rise greater than ever before! INVINCIBLE IRON MAN will follow Christopher Cantwell’s thought-provoking run on the title that concludes in November’s IRON MAN #750, the upcoming milestone issue that will give fans their first glimpse of what’s to come in this new chapter. The ongoing series will begin with Tony reflecting on the highs and lows of his 60 years of history, including digging up some classic armors and confronting old wounds, to overcome a devastating defeat at the hands of a Marvel villain who’s been making big waves throughout the Marvel Universe recently.

It all ends here? Tony Stark, the genius-billionaire-playboy-philanthropist, has lost it all: his wealth…his fame…his friends. But Stark doesn’t realize he still has so much more to lose, especially when a mystery villain puts out a hit on him! Every assassin around the Marvel Universe has come out of the shadows for Tony — and he has no idea who hired them! Will this cavalcade of killers close the book on Iron Man? It’s the beginning of the end, as the Golden Avenger must fight for his life and find out what it really means to hit rock bottom.

“It's my privilege to try and follow Christopher Cantwell and his collaborators' stellar run on IRON MAN heading into an anniversary year,” Duggan said. “Juan and I are going to introduce a new menace that is gunning for Tony Stark and his greatest creation. We have an epic tale for Stark and plans for old foes, including flashbacks to some of his classic armors. How about a little Silver Centurion for his diamond anniversary? Armor up, you're gonna need it.

Check out the cover by Kael Ngu and stay tuned for more news about the title and the other ways Marvel Comics will be honoring Iron Man’s 60th anniversary next year.

It would be nice if this were one of those stories (ala Demon in a Bottle) that actually changes a characters status quo for years to come and people talk about for years.

thats putting quite a bit of faith in these creators but who knows, maybe this will be a diamond in the rough

That sadly will probably never happen again. Marvel has this thing where they will shake up the status quo then reset it with a new #1 for "profit"

As a long time comic fan this saddens me but I fear you are correct

Tony is broke again! He's supposed to be a futurist so his stories should be moving forward not backwards.

Honestly, one of the things I'm hoping to out of this run is that Marvel finally gets this idea of making Tony low-tech and low-profile out of their system. Then we can get the return of the Tony Stark who used to build satellite research stations and utopic cities and fully-immersive VR landscapes.

Like seriosuly, what's the recent trend of making Billionaire's broke, they have done it with both Tony and Batman

Not at all new; the comic companies have done it a number of times with both of them (the other trope they use is putting guys like Batman (Wayne) in jail). Thing is, they think its dramatic and high stakes, but really it just undermines the character. Stark is supposed to be this-off-the-charts, genius inventor businessman, and has over 20 subsidiary companies in addition to SI/SE. He's lost his company/fortune before, so a man with his intellect, connections, business acumen, etc. should have fool proofed himself from that ever happening again. 

So not only have we seen this before, we know he'll get it all back eventually. 

I don't know if these story lines that are written to make him low-tech are supposed to make the readers cheer him on, as he clashes with foes using a sling shot instead of Repulsors, but I realy can't see them as necessary or entertaining.

Exactly, it is the opposite of Tony's character. He's about looking forward not backwards and he was designed to be a character readers wouldn't initially root for
