Sneak Peek: Invincible Iron Man #25

Published on January 8th, 2010

Iron Man fans might be pleased, shocked, surprised or overjoyed to hear that their favourite character is going to be getting a new look this April, according to an announcement at Marvel.com. Comic Impact’s own Dana and Simon will be pleased to know that Eisner-Award winner, writer Matt Fraction, has been working alongside Ryan Meinerding (the designer on the ‘Iron Man’ and ‘Thor’ films) to create a new look for Mr Stark’s new armor.

The armor is set to debut in ‘Invincible Iron Man’ #25, due for release in April this year.

Matt Fraction has said the following, about his plans and ideas behind the new look for Iron Man.

“The inspiration for the new design came from thinking about a sleeker, leaner, tougher Iron Man. If technology is increasingly getting smaller and lighter it seems like the Iron Man should do the same: ergonomic and aerodynamic.

We were looking for something that felt as sleek and glossy as a sports car Tony Stark would covet. I love what we’ve come up with. It feels like the next evolutionary step in the Iron Man’s design.”

What do you think about Iron Man’s new look? Too 21st Century perhaps? Un-cool? Unnecessary even? Leave your comments as to what you think.
