There is much talk of a second series of Iron Man, who could make his debut in the fall. It will be written by Brian Michael Bendis. A recent statement by Axel Alonso has ignited the debate: Brian and David [Marquez] are playing the long game with Invincible Iron Man, Alonso told CBR. When Brian pitched us, he said there was an idea for a sister-title that would spin out of the first germinating in his brain. Many commentators wonder why Marvel would launch a second series of Iron Man in a time when the comics market is in crisis. To give the push would be the film industry? Here is the answer of Alonso: I can't say much, but I will say this: The reveal on the last page of Invincible Iron Man #1 is big enough that it might need an entire series just to deal with. Many retailers plan accordingly. From these words it seems that the idea of creating a second series was born from necessity narrative. Readers love to read good stories. But with Bendis at the helm will be tough. Bendis comes from fierce disputes about the Iceman's outing. And then there seems to us the ideal person for this new series of Iron Man. The risk that the series can be seen sensational developments is high. Marvel agreed to risk after what happened after All-New X-Men #. 40?
The timing is delicate because it is emerging a new Marvel universe. Invincible Iron Man #1 goes on sale October 7 and Bendis has said he'll be delving into the recently introduced facet to Tony Stark's life that he is adopted son. Could Alonso's phrasing of a sister-title be subtlely inferring to a female Iron Man series, perhaps one even related to Tony Stark? It is not the first time that Marvel is launching two series of Iron Man. Already successful in 2007 and then the series was given to Matt Fraction. From what we are seeing it does not appear that this new Marvel Universe is very much All-New All-Different. Kristoffer Barmen.
