Too many glowy Tron bits on this armour. And the gauntlet's aren't needed. They cheapen the look of it. Make it look a bit too 90's. There's only one Iron Man and that's Tony Stark.

I await the flow of hateful comments about how there can only be one IronMan just like with the bigoted Miles Morales article...but I won't hold my breath.

Apparently whine is the only language fanboys speak.
NightWingNut - 5/10/2012, 7:09 AM
I'm thinking the new Iron Man miiiight be Bethany Cabe, though there's clearly no ta-tas like Pepper's Rescue armor has. Hmmm....
calin88 - 5/10/2012, 7:16 AM

ralfinader - 5/10/2012, 7:17 AM
ITRON-Man

what is this, iron man 2.0?
goofball shit
hoodedjester - 5/10/2012, 7:29 AM
not liking the whole Tron look to so much stuff in Marvel lately
MassExecutions - 5/10/2012, 7:36 AM
Iron Man is the easiest identity to transfer to other people, since its based on the armor. A big difference from Spider-man.

Kind a looks like he got the Captain Universe powers.
ThaMessenger07 - 5/10/2012, 7:37 AM
Havok?
SamHell - 5/10/2012, 7:40 AM
Hey Kid, I read the whole Miles Morales thing and didnt see one racist comment(except for the nimrods playing that card)Cant people hate the character just because they love Parker better? Cheese & rice people need to grow a backbone & stop being so godamn offended by the littlest things.

Tony Stark FTW!
Tevii - 5/10/2012, 7:42 AM
@kiddynamo - Im not sure what Miles Morales article you are talking about, but being concerned with a stupid new trend does not make one a bigot. Society's effort to diversify by eliminating white characters and replacing them with black characters is simply diverting the racism. Why does Spiderman have to be black, he could be Spiderboy, Archnid, the Arach-kid whatever. It is just as easy to simply create new AWESOME black characters (Batwing is the shit) so why add the confusion? Especially since it would not tolerated to change a black character to white (Spawn being one exception, but the original creator still directs the direction of that character) Im sure there may have been some ignorant racist comments, but simply disagreeing with this new trend does not make one a bigot. Im all for diversity but not at the expense of the characters we already love.

Jeff Bridges is back! But this time he has linked his Stark based armor to his Tron track suit to fight for the greater good!!! Thank you, Dude!
marvel72 - 5/10/2012, 7:46 AM
not to bad,it'll be alright as long as they keep the regular iron man suit.
GUNSMITH - 5/10/2012, 7:48 AM
HE MIGHT BE A FAD. HE'LL DO A RUN HE'LL EVOLVE INTO HIS OWN CHARACTER IRON MAN TONY STARK WILL COME BACK, THE NEW GUY WILL CHANGE A BIT AND BE CALLED BY A NEW NAME.
Chelshirecat - 5/10/2012, 7:56 AM
Joanna Newsom.



The classifieds are CLEARLY gratuitous DAT ASS shots of her in the armor.
Tevii - 5/10/2012, 7:56 AM
@gunsmith - exactly

I always thought Jeff Bridges was a better hero than Tony Stark anyways. Marvel is on the right track with this one.
Chelshirecat - 5/10/2012, 7:59 AM
This is just like Power Rangers.

original rangers cant get the job done,
So a mysterious NEW ranger shows up to save the day!


Huzzah!
ThaMessenger07 - 5/10/2012, 8:07 AM
lol I know it's not Havok.

Hope it's a Puerto Rican guy, so everyone can flip there shit. And also would explain the stolen suit...

OH! No He Didnt!
tomasocelot - 5/10/2012, 8:08 AM
kind of looks like shreik from batman beyond.
FightAs0ne - 5/10/2012, 8:10 AM
Iron man looks bad ass
GUNSMITH - 5/10/2012, 8:13 AM
I THINK HE MIGHT BE J.A.R.V.I.S
GUNSMITH - 5/10/2012, 8:13 AM
HIM OR AUTO-MAN
GUNSMITH - 5/10/2012, 8:15 AM
GUNSMITH - 5/10/2012, 8:22 AM
J.A.R.V.I.S COULD BE LIKE VISION ONLY HE'S CREATED BY STARK..TO ME IT WOULD MAKE SENSE THOUGH TO DO "I CAN'T DO STUFF BECAUSE EVERYTIME I'M IN A PREDICAMENT THEY USE THIS INHIBITOR TO SHUT ME DOWN, SO I'LL STILL DO MY STUFF BUT THROUGH A COMPUTER SYSTEM I CREATED AND COMMAND IN A ROBOTIC ASSISTED IRON MAN ARMOR...NYAH NYAH NYA NYAH NYAHH."
Sortis - 5/10/2012, 8:29 AM
This could be interesting...but I doubt it.
SuperSomething616 - 5/10/2012, 8:32 AM
What...the...fcuk!!!
KidDynamo0 - 5/10/2012, 8:46 AM
@Tevii Go read the thread about whether Miles will die in the new Spider-Men comic and then you will see my point. I'm not going to go back and forth about it here because I find that most people don't know how to use systemic logic. Anyway, replacing all white characters with black character is not the point. The utter hatred for Miles is the point. I don't give a shit that one iteration of Spider-Man is black because its not as if Peter Parker isn't in the comics anymore. The argument of what if Blade were made white is ludicrous because there are so few prominent non-white heroes. We can all name a few, but its still a few. Name 15 prominent black heroes, 15 latino ones, 15 asian heroes...so one and so forth. When these characters were created in the 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s white culture was the dominate culture in America. This is really up for debate. However, nowadays with a closer to a minority majority country and the culture is and has been shifting. Does that mean Superman has be latino? No, of course not. However, it doesn't mean that an alternative universe can't have a black/latino Spider-Man. I am black and it was really awesome reading the first Miles TPB. I gave it to my nephew and he loved it. He is 11 and a huge Spider-Man fan. Seeing another Spider-Man (he doesn't see him as a replacement, he sees him as just another Spider-Man) that looks like him is pretty great. If you are white and grew up in America you never had to think about heroes who didn't look like you. You don't have to think about wanting to dress up like a hero who is a different color than you for Halloween. Those thoughts don't occur. For black kids, for example, its a nice thing to be included. Is it a marketing thing, sure. They are trying to reach larger audiences...why is that horrible? If they killed off Parker in the 616 universe and make him black then that would suck. However, they aren't. If Tony Stark was suddenly replaced permanantly by Rhodes that would suck, and I wouldn't support it but having black, latino, Asian folks included in comics in a prominent role is not only socially a good thing, but from a marketing perspective it makes since. Things change and until all the classic heroes are brown and all the white characters are dead I think we can just relax.
ThaMessenger07 - 5/10/2012, 8:52 AM
lol Patient you me and every other comic reader knows this shit won't last.

And how can you not like Classic Iron-Man. Nothing like Ballet Tights say Technologically advanced Super Weapon Armor!
ThaMessenger07 - 5/10/2012, 9:00 AM
Lol Mickey's Nose is begging to be Photoshopped! lol
OdinsBeard - 5/10/2012, 9:10 AM
i dont get it... if they want to sell more action figures make him a bad guy while keeping tony stark around.
Lizardking310 - 5/10/2012, 10:07 AM
I hate Matt fractions ironman it started so well but damn after stark resiliente story arc it's just been down hill
Brady1138 - 5/10/2012, 12:24 PM
Somebody's a Tron fan.
mikesinuman - 5/10/2012, 12:36 PM
that's agent coulson.
thatcoldblackcloud - 5/10/2012, 3:59 PM
It's the New iron man: TRONy Stark
FriendlyNeighborhoodSpidey - 5/10/2012, 5:57 PM
Tony Stark is Iron Man.
gaikinger - 5/10/2012, 6:35 PM
This is only a temporary storyline people so lighten up. I think it may be the return of Happy Hogan from the grave.
Superville8 - 5/11/2012, 11:30 AM
The new Iron Man I think is the Kree "Protector". The colors match his current costume and recently I think it was AVX #1 he said that he wanted his advanced Kree tech but Noh-Varr wouldn't give it to him and Cap says that he never will and Tony says that he just has to make the right offer.
