Slott Moves From Webhead To Shellhead

Will turn Iron man into best Cyberman comic book ever

While the citizens of Munchkinland may have cheered writer Dan Slott's announced depature from the Amazing Spider-Man book, the writer is not done with Marvel yet. In an interview on his tenure on Spider-Man and deciding to leave the book (2014), he revealed what book he'll next be working on: Iron Man.

Yes, Dan Slott will be filling the shoes that writer Brian Bendis  left from. As Slott said, he is "going from the flagship character of the Marvel Comics of my youth to the gem of the Marvel Cinematic Universe". Ironically, Slott says that if he had known Bendis was leaving earlier, he may have stuck with Spidey until he reached his next, more faraway "benchmark":

"Eight-oh-one is special for me, and I wanted to get to there. There was only one benchmark left that I could hit and it felt forever away, and that was more issues of any Spider-Man comic than anyone. That was the one benchmark that was very much dangling out of reach like Tantalus. The reason why was Brian Michael Bendis. [Editor's note: Bendis currently holds the record for most issues written of any Spider-Man comic, thanks to his runs on Ultimate Spider-Man and Spider-Man.] He kept writing, so it was a moving benchmark, and I just assumed he was never leaving. If I had known, if I had only known that Brian was gonna jump to DC I would've stayed on. [Laughs.] I bet you I would have stayed on."


While no real specifics were given (though we guess we see Tony Stark) regarding his upcoming run on Iron Man (eg. title, when this will start, etc), Slott did provide an idea of how he may approach the character:

"Reed Richards explores the universe. He wants to know everything and go everywhere. Tony Stark builds the future. It's not that he's not out to discover the next big thing. But he's gonna take his own two hands and he's gonna build where he wants to go, or what he wants to do. He looks at a challenge and goes, "How do I machine my way out of this?"

But more than any character in the Marvel universe, he is the self-made man. You take him out of that suit? He's a normal man. He makes himself the superhero. He makes himself into the thing he wants. There will be a very unique cast in this book of characters: Iron Man characters you love and Marvel characters that you haven't seen folded into the Iron Man cast."


We'll bring you more info when it comes out.
