New Invincible Iron Man Series Celebrates 60th Anniversary


Every Marvel fan can’t help but love Tony Stark’s Iron Man. Whether in the comics or the MCU, Iron Man is one of the most iconic superheroes to ever exist. This year is the character’s 60th birthday and Marvel is going all out, giving him the birthday he deserves. Marvel will release a relaunch of Invincible Iron Man in December. So let’s break down all the information we have about it.

Invincible Iron Man

Invincible Iron Man

Writer Gerry Duggan and artist Juan Frigeri bring Invincible Iron Man back and usher him into a new era. Invincible Iron Man will supposedly put Tony Stark down and fight his way out. He will face a crushing defeat from a well-known villain. Here is its synopsis.

“Everything ends here? Tony Stark, the genius-billionaire-playboy-philanthropist, has lost everything: his wealth… his fame… his friends. But Stark doesn’t realize he still has a lot more to lose, especially when a mysterious villain strikes him down! Every assassin in the Marvel Universe has come out of the shadows for Tony – and he has no idea who hired them! Will this cavalcade of killers close the book on Iron Man? It’s the beginning of the end, as the Golden Avenger must fight for his life and find out what it really means to hit rock bottom.

The current Iron Man storyline created by Christopher Cantwell saw Iron Man do it all. From confronting Korvac to entering rehab, he faced some very tough challenges. However, this next fight might just be the toughest of his life and he is bound to lose. It seems only fitting that such an epic character would receive a reboot of such epic proportions.

Remembering its origins

Thrillers 39

Iron Man was created through the combined efforts of four legendary artists: editor and storyteller Stan Lee, screenwriter Larry Lieber, storyteller Don Heck, and cover artist and character designer Jack Kirby. Stan Lee wanted to create a man who supposedly had it all, the wealth, the charm, the ladies but was still broken inside. He wanted to create a man who was easy to hate, the epitome of war and capitalism, and always try to endear and encourage the public. To say he succeeded would be an understatement.

Iron Man first appeared in 1963 in tales of suspense nope. 39. This followed Tony Stark as he displayed his latest creations which were micro-transistors capable of powering things such as magnets; turning them into powerful weapons. The villain was the evil red tyrant Wong-Chu who was determined to bring Vietnam under his control. The rest as we know it involves Tony Stark creating the rescue suit and also saving the day.

Some highlights of his successful career as a superhero

Iron Man vs. Magneto

Wolverine’s Adamantium and Black Panther’s Vibranium are known to be two of the most powerful and long-lasting substances on the planet. They can cut through anything and shield you from anything. But Iron Man achieves the impossible. When Cardiac took some Stark scientists and held them captive, Iron Man managed to break through the Adamantium and Vibranium Sphere and help them breathe. He did it by propelling himself like a missile. Although it seriously injured his arm, the feat is still a great show of strength and intellect.

She-Hulk has made several appearances with the Avengers. In one of them, she was manipulated and controlled by none other than Scarlet Witch and turned into a stupid and angry weapon. She was so powerful that she tore Vision in half. Crazy right? And then there was Iron Man. He knocked her out with a single punch.

He created a suit known as the Phoenix-Buster that took the Phoenix Force Entity and fractured it, causing it to burst. His Thor-Buster armor faced Thor. He once shot Captain Marvel, someone who is considered the most powerful of the Avengers. He of course faced the Hulk with his Hulk-Buster armor. He even defeated Magneto by creating a suit without any metal and using Jupiter’s magnetic field to power him. This man is the perfect combination of strength and intelligence. After all, even without his suit, he’s still a genius, a billionaire, a playboy, a philanthropist. He is IRON MAN.
