Even though the suit looks hilarious, you can’t deny that Greg Land’s artwork looks incredible. While Iron Man has been the surprise hit for the Marvel Now! relaunch, it doesn’t look good when you gotta throw Iron Man in space to take on what appears to be the Shi’ar. People are fed up with everything Phoenix related so the best thing Marvel could do at this point is just end it. Let the Phoenix blowing up into millions of little pieces be the end of it. It was a great resource for story lines but after the White Hot Room enough was enough. Here is the official press release:
Tony Stark Takes Marvel NOW! Into Space With IRON MAN #6!
This February, Tony Stark soars into space in your first look at Iron Man #6, kicking off the all-new arc “God-Killer” by the blockbuster creative team of writer Kieron Gillen and artist Greg Land! Suit up for an all-new, all-different direction for the Armored Avenger as he’s branded guilty for a crime he didn’t know he committed! Just when he thought the events of Avengers VS.

As part of Marvel NOW!, Iron Man continues to be a part of a line of titles that are taking the Marvel Universe in an exciting all-new direction, as the industry’s top creators join the top Super Heroes to deliver all-new ongoing series, great for new and lapsed readers alike!
