Christopher Cantwell Shares His Blueprint for Iron Man's Heroic New Era

Tony Stark reignites his engine next month, when Eisner-nominated writer Christopher Cantwell (Doctor Doom) ushers in a new age for the armored Avenger in Iron Man #1. Joined by top artists CAFU and Frank D’Armata, Cantwell promises to take Tony Stark back to basics, putting aside his high-tech toys and high-profile image so he can get his hands dirty as a Super Hero again. Suited up in brand-new armor designed by the legendary Alex Ross, Tony will struggle to keep his Stark-sized ego in check when a deadly threat emerges from his past. Check out the video above to watch an exclusive video interview with writer Christopher Cantwell, packed with never-before-seen interior artwork from the debut issue!

“He’s a man who thinks he’s a god and a god who wants to be a man. That to me boils down the conflict of the character. Tony’s ego has always been a major problem for him in his life,” Cantwell told Marvel.com Host Angélique Roché. “The book really starts with Tony taking a look at himself: ‘Who am I really? Who is Iron Man? I want to be a hero again, what does that mean?’”

Discover the inner workings of Tony Stark as he soars into the future when Iron Man #1 (JUL200595) goes on sale September 16th at your local comic shop!

BIG IRON!
Tony Stark is looking to restart his engine. He decides he's going back to basics, putting away his high-tech toys and high-profile image so he can get his hands dirty again. It's time to dig into the guts of real machines, put on some old-fashioned metal and fly.
But can he really lay that Stark-sized ego down? Life isn't that simple, something that old friends and frustrating foes are quick to point out. If you strip down a billionaire to his bolts, does he run solid or just overheat?
Tony's going to find out once a threat to the entire universe rears its head from the past. As he suits up again, Tony remains sure of one thing: he's still IRON MAN down to his flesh and blood core.
