90's Alert: Teen Tony Returns to Iron Man

90's Alert: Teen Tony Returns to Iron Man

One more vestige of the 90s is returning to comics.



Source: Marvel Press Release

Over the last few years, we've seen relics of the 90s such as gatefold covers, Rob Liefeld, holofoil, Scott Lobdell, polybags, diecut covers and Bob Harras reappear in the comic book industry, all of which have been met with some level of scorn from those of us who remember how the 1990s destroyed the industry.  Now, another piece of 90s trash is returning to comics: Teen Tony.

Actually, it's not all that bad.  Marvel has announced that Keiron Gillen and artist Dale Eaglesham will be writing a "Secret Origin" arc of Iron Man.  A piece of promotional art showng a baby Iron Man indicates that the arc will focus on Stark's younger years, which probably means that we'll see a teenage version of Tony Stark.

On the plus side, Greg Land is off Iron Man, at least for a little while.  Yay, no Greg Land! 

Here's the teaser:

Kurt Busiek explained it all away in the garbage cleaning event that was Avengers Forever I think.

If Marvel can promise me that Greg Land will stay far, far away from this arc, I will sample Gillen's Iron Man. While Gillen's perception of Tony in interviews doesn't really jive with mine, I miss reading an Iron Man comic regularly and am perfectly willing to give it a shot.

I'd hate to see the porn that Greg Land would have to trace for a teen Tony arc. :shock:

That teen tony arc in the 90s was something everybody wanted to forget storywise-as well as War Machine's symbiote armor.

Franklin Richards created/ended the whole Heroes Reborn thing based on his mental idea of who the heroes were. So when he brought Tony back from the Heroes Reborn world, in his mind, he pictured adult Tony, so voila, adult Tony was back.

Stupid fix for a stupid problem.

Uncle Rich had some interesting speculation about this:

http://www.bleedingcool.com/2013/02/06/speculation-over-that-new-iron-man-origin/

Okay, so this is my guess. And purely that.

The transformation of Tony Stark, being kidnapped by an enemy, being tortured, being used to manufacture weapons, and from that event creating a prototype of the Iron Man suit, escaping from capture and then using that suit as a new type of superhero.

If everything you know is wrong (and note the old grey helmet on the teaser image)…

What if it was a setup? Something artifically arranged to get Tony Stark to invent.. something. And that something ended up as the Iron Man Suit.

I asked and was told “You’re on the right track…”


I haven't been keeping up with IM, but do they ever talk about Howard Stark in the book these days?
