Black Cat’s luck never runs out! After penning back-to-back series for Marvel’s iconic heroine, writer Jed MacKay will return with another Felicia Hardy adventure in IRON CAT, a new limited series with artist Pere Pérez. Announced this morning at ComicsPro, IRON CAT will see Black Cat team up with Iron Man to investigate the re-emergence of the extraordinary Iron Cat armor. First appearing in BLACK CAT #11, the armor stole the hearts of fans with its sleek design by artist CF Villa. But after a thrilling showdown, Felicia returned the suit to Stark, so who controls the suit this time…?
Black Cat and Iron Man thought they had seen the last IRON CAT armor. And if Felicia is surprised to see the armor again, you can imagine how furious Tony is. There’s someone new in the Iron Cat armor, and they’ve got a plan that will put them in the crosshairs of every hero in the Marvel Universe. The secrets and mistakes of Iron Man and Black Cat will come back to haunt them, and it’s going to get RAW!
“Curiosity may have killed the cat, but as always, satisfaction brings it back. It was with heavy hearts that we said goodbye to the ongoing BLACK CAT series last year, but now what would have was the next arc of this series lives on in its own right – IRON CAT!” MacKay said. “The fan-favorite Iron Cat armor is back…but who’s in it this time? It’s definitely not Felicia Hardy, because the Iron Cat is shooting at her from the get-go. It’s a pleasure Rare to get a second chance to pick up a story you thought was lost, and I’m so excited for people to join Father and I on another Black Cat adventure!”
“I’ve been reading Jed’s BLACK CAT series for a while now, and it’s been great to be a part of that story,” Pérez said. “I mean, there’s heists, chases, fights, Iron Man… You can’t go wrong with that. We’ll also see how parts of Felicia’s past come back to haunt her. Felicia and Tony’s worlds are pretty much opposites, so you can imagine how crazy things can get if you make them work together. I can’t wait to show everyone what we cook.
