The Iron Man Library Site Updates Archive

Last two years of site updates for The Iron Man Library (created on December 29, 2009).

Note: Details on the LATEST site update is found on the Home page.

Continuing where we left off

November 6, 2017
Just old stuff again.

The Utopia crossover continues in UNCANNY X-MEN #513 where Emma Frost meets her new Dark X-Men and adds Sub-Mariner to the ranks, and DARK AVENGERS #7 where they go on their 1st mission.

And T Vernon continues Iron Man: Legacy of Doom with #3 where Shellhead fights Dr Doom who has the sword Excalibur in order to win the sword's mystic scabbard.



3 armoured warriors from the past

October 30, 2017
Just 2 old issues of Iron interest this week.

In DARK AVENGERS/UNCANNY X-MEN: UTOPIA Norman Osborn takes advantage of conflict between X-Men and anti-mutant protesters to declare martial law in San Francisco and as Iron Patriot bring in his Dark Avengers.

T Vernon does IRON MAN: LEGACY OF DOOM #2. Iron Man breaks out of Hell but Dr Doom gets Morgana Le Fey to mystically fuse Excalibur into his armour.



What's all this about legacy?

October 23, 2017
Our Marvel Legacy series begins with INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #593. The previous Invincible and Infamous titles live on in this 1 with artists Stefano Caselli and Alex Maleev handling the pages for their own characters. I wonder how long that can last? Will Ironheart and Iron Doom never meet? Meanwhile Tony Stark's body has gone and someone is putting on his armour.

T Vernon has just finished IM#249-250 which was the 2nd story in what has become known as the Camelot Trilogy. The 1st tale was in #149-150. Unfortunately the original Iron Man series never reached #349-350, but much later the IM: Legacy of Doom miniseries provided the 3rd leg. It's set back in this period of Tony Stark's life, so TV has decided to write it up now. Here's #1.

While T is doing that I'll be reporting on the Dark Avengers/X-Men: Utopia crossover event. Starting with DARK X-MEN: THE BEGINNING #1-3 - the miniseries which shows Norman Osborn recruiting his Dark X-Men. But it doesn't involve the word 'legacy'.



Back to the future

October 16, 2017
I've no new titles to report on this week, so it's back to the past.

In AVENGERS: INITIATIVE #28 Norman Osborn's grip on the Initiative starts to slip as the Nevada Heavy Hitters team quit, helped by Tigra's Avengers Resistance.

And T Vernon does IRON MAN (1968) #250 where Iron Man and Dr Doom have been taken to the future by Merlin to aid reincarnated King Arthur against an older Doom and an evil future Iron Man descendant of Tony Stark.



Everybody's leaving

October 9, 2017
The US Avengers start to break up in their #10. Sunspot resigns, Gen'l Maverick can't be Red Hulk anymore, Toni Ho's giving up being Iron Patriot, the Government want to deport Enigma, and nobody believes Squirrel Girl could really have done all the things in her comics. But at least Smasher turns up to say Cannonball's still alive.

In the historical section we finish off Atlantis Attacks. I've added comments to Seahammer's THOR ANNUAL #14 where Thor and Dr Strange kick the demon Set out of our dimension. And then everybody gangs together in FANTASTIC FOUR ANNUAL #22 to free the 7 Brides from Ghaur and Llyra, who also disappear.

Then Iron Man goes back to his own series in IRON MAN (1968) #249 to battle Dr Doom over a pair of mysterious artefacts, which ends with them transported to another time as they'll discover next issue. T Vernon's on the case.
