2557new_storyimage2827313_thumb Marvel announced that an all new ongoing comic series titled Invincible Iron Man will launch latter in the month of May. I wish they would have green-lighted this project for an animated series either for TV or direct to DVD.  This will follow the May 2nd premier of the Iron Man Movie and although it will benefit from the movie hype and excitement if they had done it as a series they could have really launched something to fill the void left behind by the writer's strike.

The picture is the Cover by Joe Quesada which is planned for the first issue cover.  The cover graphics are exciting and compelling and hope that the rest of the artwork matches.

The Invincible Iron Man will be written by Matt Fraction and penciled & cover by Salvador Larroca & Joe Quesada.

Tony Stark – Iron Man, billionaire industrialist and director of S.H.I.E.L.D. – faces the most overwhelming challenge of his life. Ezekiel Stane, the son of Tony's late business rival and archenemy Obadiah, has set his sights, his genius and his considerable fortune on the task of destroying Tony Stark and Iron Man. What's worse, he's got Iron Man tech, and he's every bit Iron Man's equal and opposite…except younger, faster, smarter…and immeasurably evil.


I really like Iron man but question his opponent in this series and how tight of a story it will make. But "Have faith true believer" and I do look forward to more info.
