Marvel just confirmed the new IRON MAN series from writer Christopher Cantwell and artist CAFU last week with an amazing wrap-around cover by Alex Ross. The wrap-around cover indicates a look that seems to be bringing Iron Man back to his roots. Currently, Tony is leading a synthetic life form/ Artificial Intelligence Revolution with Cantwell’s IRON MAN #1 spinning out of the aftermath of Dan Slott’s event.
In a press release from Cantwell, he states “I’m over the moon about getting a shot at writing the Golden Avenger. Since Bob Layton’s art in the 1980s captured my imagination as a kid, I’ve been fascinated by Iron Man, and in this new story run, I’m aiming to explore the question: who should Iron Man be today? An angel? A god? Or just a humble man?” Cantwell continues noting, ”Tony’s going to try and strip the idea of Iron Man all the way down to its metal core, something that will constantly be at odds with his giant ego. We’ll see if he can truly keep his arrogant self-image in check, even as others with god complexes set their sights on the entire universe.”
I don’t know about all of you but I for one am also ”over the moon” excited for a new creative team and a new direction. Christopher Cantwell and CAFU will offer the perfect change of pace that this book has needed for over a year now.
