Tony Stark and Patsy Walker Go to Hell and Back in “Iron Man/Hellcat Annual” #1


Writer Christopher Cantwell put the blossoming romance of Iron Man and Hellcat through the ringtone in the pages of his acclaimed run on IRON MAN. And in June, he’ll team up with incredible artist Ruairí Coleman to deliver a major twist for the duo in a story that also dives deep into Hellcat’s compelling history. IRON MAN/HELLCAT ANNUAL #1 will be a giant-sized epic showing why Tony and Patsy could be Marvel’s next big superhero romance.

After Tony’s shocking marriage proposal in IRON MAN #20, Hellcat travels to San Francisco to get his house in order…only that house is an aging Victorian mansion his mother Dorothy left him. The house and its secrets will reunite Patsy with old friends like Hedy Wolfe – as well as others she hoped would be left dead and buried. When a supernatural crisis strikes, will Hellcat and Iron Man combined be enough to fend off the flames of Hell itself? !

Of his reinvigorated take on the character, Cantwell says, “Hellcat has one of the most unique – and sometimes inscrutable – origin stories in Marvel Comics, but also one of my favorites. I love that Patsy got her start in teen romance comics in the 1940s and is still able to ride the wave of the rise of superheroes, becoming Hellcat. With an epic, twisted backstory that now spans over 75 years, I had a blast exploring the rich tapestry that is Patsy – first in IRON MAN, and now in even greater depth. in this annual.

“In this tale, we focus on Hellcat’s special relationship with Hell itself…after all, she spent time there, and she once endured a tumultuous marriage to Daimon Hellstrom, Satan’s son. Patsy started out as one of America’s first friends and then became a hero, but she’s felt a darkness pull her in for years. It’s deep, twisted, personal and ugly… and maybe … a little alluring? Her relationship with Iron Man was a welcome counterbalance to that – a light that dissipated a bit of the shadows within her. But this story explores Patsy’s connection to a more spooky realm. Yes , she can be charming, bubbly and sweet, but is there a power in these hellfires that could illuminate a deeper truth?
