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.

The once and future Tony Stark

September 18, 2017
In GENERATIONS: IRON MAN & IRONHEART Ironheart gets sent to the future not the past, and meets Tony Stark Sorcerer Supreme not Iron Man.

Peter Silvestro *really* concludes Secret Empire with SE: OMEGA as good Captain America visits bad Cap in prison and we get some clues about upcoming developments.

As SE is wrapped up I've completed and reorganised my tie-in comments in SE#0-8. (SE#9&10 don't have any tie-in issues.)

In Dark Reign's AVENGERS: INITIATIVE #26 we meet some of Norman Osborn's new Initiative teams, and the Avengers Resistance go into action.

And in IRON MAN (1968) #246 T Vernon brings us the start of a 3 (or 4) part arc featuring a war between AIM, Hydra and the Maggia.



Atlanteans keep attacking

September 11, 2017
It's a quiet week now Secret Empire is over, so I've only got old issues to give you.

In Dark Reign's DARK AVENGERS #5-6 Norman Osborn gives a TV interview, Marvel Boy quits after he discovers that his teammates aren't the good guys, and Sub-Mariner quits the Cabal when Sentry/Void kills some Atlantean terrorists who have invaded Los Angeles.

Even further back T Vernon synopsises IRON MAN (1968) ANNUAL #10, the 2nd part of the Atlantis Attacks crossover event. Iron Man and Namor team-up against Attuma's Atlantean invaders in Panama, and Subby appears to get killed.



Everything comes in 2's

September 4, 2017
Peter Silvestro concludes Secret Empire with SE#10 as good Captain America fights bad Cap and Kobik puts nearly everything right. Except it seems that Black Widow and Rick Jones are still dead.

INFAMOUS IRON MAN #11 reveals that Mephisto is behind the return of Doom's mother, and his motives aren't good.

In T Vernon's IRON MAN (1968) #245 we get the return of Madame Masque - or do we because another Madame Masque is found dead?

And then Mephisto is in AVENGERS WEST COAST #50-52 as well as it turns out that Scarlet Witch's 2 children were really just fragments of the demon. Oh, and Iron Man returns to the team.



Replacements galore

August 28, 2017
Peter Silvestro is here again with SECRET EMPIRE #9. The good guys continue to win, including deconstructing the Hydra Avengers. Kobik seems to have the good Steve Rogers ready to bring him back. But his replacement Hydra-Cap gains a god-like power.

US AVENGERS #9 is an SE tie-in where the split team also win their fights against Hydra. But is Tony Ho going to change from Iron Patriot to another super-id?

Dark Reign's NEW AVENGERS (2005) #51-54 has Brother Voodoo replacing Dr Strange as Sorcerer Supreme. Oh, and the team fight demon-Hood and Madame Masque. Only #54 shows up in this Library, but by the magic of the new issue display system you can get to see the others too.

There's yet another replacement Iron Man, but it doesn't take long for crippled Tony Stark to get back in the armour in IRON MAN (1968) #244, brought to us as usual by T Vernon.



The Queen abdicates

August 21, 2017
In INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #10 Ironheart resigns as Queen of Latveria but not before making everything OK.

I've added more comments on Secret Empire tie-ins in SE #1,2,8.

In MIGHTY AVENGERS (2007) #24 the team go on a world tour of super-problem outbreaks, much to the annoyance of Norman Osborn.

And in IRON MAN (1968) #243 T Vernon shows us the effects of Tony Stark getting shot.
