As much as I love Gillen's writing, The Secret Origin of Tony Stark has just been completely uninteresting. I'm really hoping it gets better when he gets back to earth, but holy heck, I just do not care that Tony was chosen by a centuries old robot to save the human race. It makes the character just a little bit more bull schlock. Why can't there be a genius in the Marvel universe who designs armor of his own design? Why make it necessary that he had implants in the womb? I just do not care for it at all and hopefully it gets written out sometime down the road.



I feel the same way. Tony Stark did not need some "secret destiny". He's just a genius inventor who became a superhero. I don't think this "secret origin" will be remembered past this run, which honestly hasn't been great.

Yeah, putting new, unnecessary spins into characters origin's is annoying, the writing is good, but the concept isn't, especially since it was done to SO many characters..

Tony Stark, long believed to be the biological son of Howard and Maria Stark, was adopted. The Starks' biological son -- the boy who got all the genetic enhancements from 451 in order to be the Godkiller's pilot -- is actually Arno Stark, who has been laid up in a hospital bed since his birth.

Iron man #18 had a really weird ending


Spoiler: show
A woman was basically inducted into the Mandarin corps. :facepalm:

Basically, a ring flew to her and asked her if she wanted to save the world. she said yes, so the ring said

"You possess the neccesary will".

Then it latched on to her, made her go kind of phoenix like (firey hair and flying) and said

"You are Mandarin Seven, save the world from Tony Stark".

I don't know were this is going, but there is definately GL similarities, and it seems pretty stupid.

surprised there hasn't been much talk of this past issue #18. I got caught up on Secret Origin of Tony Stark and then read up through all but the latest issue of Iron Metropolitan. Yes, the GL similarities were quite overt and cheesy, but otherwise I've found it to be a really good storyline. I'm awaiting to see where all of this goes... and does Arno fulfill becoming Iron Man 2020? Hints at it? Really interesting stuff...

just thought I'd bump this up and get other people's thoughts.

The writer kind of screwed up this arc in his interviews by giving you the end of it before it had even started.

I quite like the GL nod, it reminds me of times when Marvel and DC used to do that stuff all the time. Anybody ever wonder why the Squadron Supreme used to bear an uncanny similarity to the Justice League :-) All good fun.
