COMICS: Tony Stark Becomes A "Godkiller" In Next February's IRON MAN #6

Bridging the gap between Kieron Gillen's first arc on his Marvel NOW! Iron Man series and the beginning of Brian Michael Bendis' Guardians of the Galaxy (in which Tony Stark will be a member), the "Godkiller" arc has been unveiled by Marvel. Hit the jump for details and artwork!

By Josh Wilding - 11/12/2012
The second arc of Kieron Gillen and Greg Land's Iron Man will take the Armoured Avenger into outer space. It will explore how Tony Stark's confrontation with the Phoenix in Avengers Vs. X-Men changed his beliefs and leads directly into how the hero becomes a member of Brian Michael Bendis and Steve McNiven's Guardians of the Galaxy. "The second you put Tony in space, it makes sense for all sorts of reasons," Gillen revealed earlier today in an interview with various press outlets. "In terms of going forward, my current conception is, much like the opening line of Hawkeye — Tony Stark is a member of Guardians of the Galaxy, [the solo Iron Man series] is what he does when he’s not with the Guardians of the Galaxy." Asked whether or not we'll see Uncanny X-Men's Unit appear in the arc, the writer remained coy, but did tease another notable appearance. "Death’s Head is my Boba Fett." Are you guys excited for this arc?

Marqy47 - 11/12/2012, 3:28 PM
Yeah .. I agree with you. The suit looks crappy .. reminds me of the Power Rangers or something like that
REMIMARKS - 11/12/2012, 3:28 PM
The hell? Not feeling the armor
jimoakley666 - 11/12/2012, 3:29 PM
The suit looks fine but the helmet is crap.
ZombieOverEasy - 11/12/2012, 3:31 PM
I like everything about the armor, except the helmet.
jimpinto24 - 11/12/2012, 3:37 PM
Yes!
marvel72 - 11/12/2012, 3:38 PM

TheSnuggler - 11/12/2012, 3:38 PM
Stupid
marvel72 - 11/12/2012, 3:40 PM

IronManny819 - 11/12/2012, 3:44 PM
@ Alex. ...Yeah...me too.
TerminatorMode - 11/12/2012, 3:45 PM
not that i think the armor's great but the blank background really doesn't help
TragicBronson - 11/12/2012, 3:49 PM
I'm kind of digging the different style of this armor...including the helmet.
Deadpool101 - 11/12/2012, 3:51 PM
[frick] the haters !!! YES something New!!! hope this is great
MarvelEPIC - 11/12/2012, 4:04 PM
@mctrinket the pheonix
SageMode - 11/12/2012, 4:18 PM
The armor looks pretty badass. Sounds interesting. I'll give this some attention
Space - 11/12/2012, 4:51 PM
cooolllll

RAWRG - 11/12/2012, 4:58 PM
can't wait to pick this up! armor looks sick!!!
DaCottDamnBatman - 11/12/2012, 5:10 PM
I HEARD IRONMAN WAS GOING TO ALSO BE IN THE GOTG MOVIE. I SEE WHAT YOUR DOING MARVEL. THROWING IRONMAN IN THE GOTG MOVIE AND NEW COMIC JUST SO PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT COMIC FANS CAN GO SEE THE MOVIE. I DON'T MIND IRONMAN BEING IN SPACE OR EVEN HELPING THEM OUT FROM TIME TO TIME BUT I THINK THE ONLY TEAM IRONMAN NEED TO BE APART OF IS THE AVENGERS. I DON'T LIKE TO BE FORCE FEED MARVEL.... LIKE THE NEW SUIT THOU
DaCottDamnBatman - 11/12/2012, 5:12 PM

marvel72 - 11/12/2012, 5:12 PM
@ MARVELPSYCHO79

the storyline i've got featuring death's head is mys-tech wars.
MarvelEPIC - 11/12/2012, 5:23 PM
Can't wait, hope they do another armor wars or something like with these armors.
MrAgamotto - 11/12/2012, 5:25 PM
Ugh, Greg Land...
DaCottDamnBatman - 11/12/2012, 7:43 PM
IT SEEMS LIKE IRONMAN MIGHT HAVE SOME OF THE PHOENIX FORCE IN HIM...
BIGBMH - 11/12/2012, 8:14 PM
The face just doesn't have a very Iron Man feel imo.
WruceBayne - 11/12/2012, 8:25 PM
If Ironman is going to be in the GOTG movie I think he's going to be in the after credits scene. I don't think he's going to be in the main cast.
DaCottDamnBatman - 11/12/2012, 8:57 PM
WITH HIM BEING APART OF THE TEAM IN THE NEW COMIC I DO. THINK ABOUT IT IRON MAN 3 MIGHT BE THE LAST IRONMAN MOVIE. OUTSIDE OF. FAN BOYS NOBODY REALLY KNOW WHO GOTG ARE. THIS MIGHT JUST BE A WAY TO GET PEOPLE AREN'T FANBOYS INTERESTED. HELL MY BET IS THAT GOTG MIGHT SHOW UP AT THE END CREDIT OF IM 3. THAT WAY PEOPLE WILL WANT TO WONDER WHATS GOING ON AND BY THE TIME THEY START SHOWING GOTG PREVIEWS PEOPLE WILL BE INTERESTED. KIND OF LIKE HOW IRON MAN CONNECTED THE OTHER MARVEL MOVIES WITH THE END CREDIT THAT LEAD TO THE AVENGERS
DaCottDamnBatman - 11/12/2012, 9:07 PM
BETTER YET IM GOING TO CALL IT RIGHT NOW. I BET THE GOTG WILL SHOW UP AT THE END CREDIT FOR IM 3 WITH SOME HUGE CRISES AND THEY NEED HIS HELP. AND THERE YOU HAVE IT A PERFECT SET UP FOR THE GOTG MOVIE AND YOU STILL GET IRON MAN FOR 3 MORE MOVIES (IN THIS ORDER): AVENGERS 2, GOTG, AND AVENGERS 3. THERE WON'T BE A NEED FOR ANOTHER SOLO IM MOVIE FOR A WHILE
Jollem - 11/12/2012, 9:33 PM
i was aware of the synergy comics share with the movies from the start, but marvel using their comics as a marketing strategy for their movies and to build up hype...?

that's a bastardization of comic books, marvel

don't use them as a tool
Lewisfall - 11/13/2012, 3:05 AM
It's Iron-Flash!
Shadowelfz - 11/13/2012, 5:27 AM
Wait so first he tried blowing up the Phoneix Force with a bomb and now he's 'killing gods?' Iron Man is slowly becoming Marvel's new Superman. Lets see what crazy shit he's going to do this week.

I'm okay with the GotG thing, though. Kinda makes sense for him. And minus the helmet the suit looks fine.
malschla - 11/13/2012, 5:29 AM
Another "god killer"? Isn't that the plot to the new Thor series?
Rothwilder - 11/13/2012, 6:08 AM
@DaCottDamnBatman

We already have one member that uses caps all the time. Hit the "Caps Lock" key on your keyboard and don't type like an 8 year old boy.
DaCottDamnBatman - 11/13/2012, 7:45 AM
@ROTHWILDER

I REALLY DON'T CARE WHO ELSE TYPES IN CAPS AND WHO DOESN'T. I'VE ALWAYS TYPED IN CAPS AND WILL CONTINUE TO. UNLESS I'M WRITING AN OFFICIAL LETTER OR SOME SORT OF DOCUMENT I REALLY DON'T THINK IT MATTERS. BUT I'LL TELL YOU ONE THING I'VE REALLY GROWN TO LOVE THE WAY IT PISSES OFF. IM PRETTY SURE YOU HAVE MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO WORRY ABOUT

DaCottDamnBatman - 11/13/2012, 7:47 AM
*PISSES PEOPLE OFF*
DaCottDamnBatman - 11/13/2012, 7:53 AM
@SHADOWELFZ

IM NOT WITH IT CAUSE IT JUST SEEMS FORCED. JUST LIKE MARVEL IS FORCING THE AVENGER INTO ALMOST EVERY MARVEL SERIES BECAUSE OF THE MOVIE ITS SEEMS IRONMAN IS BEING FORCED INTO GOTG JUST TO ENSURE PEOPLE GO SEE THE MOVIE. IT WASN'T A CRESTIVE DECISION ON THE BEHALF OF MARVEL IT WAS A MONEY HUNGRY MARKETING DECISION
KrazyForKomix - 11/13/2012, 12:24 PM
I just can't wait for Spider-Man and Wolverine to join the GOTG! Then we'll have team that people will HAVE to notice.

. . .

. . . .. .

Thank Abnett & Lanning. You gave us a great run.
Soon - NOT YET - but soon, it'll be the Avengers/Shield Space Watch Intergalactic Protection Earth Strikeforce!
