Nor is he a lion, even if he's growing the mane to match in Iron Man Legacy #6.

He's got a reason for not shaving, though: Obadiah Stane's taken his company, Namor's convinced his fellow Illuminati to let Tony go it alone, and all he's got to his name is a set of golf clubs.

the Iron Legion of 2020 AD? subtle, Van Lente, subtle.

(like to know what a Ganglaxus does; something to your neural networks, no doubt.)

Tony Stark, nihilist!

But when his new friend is menaced by a Hangman working the day shift, Tony armors up in one of his older models (that golf bag is like his suitcase, you know), bemoaning its lack of resource efficiency in the process:

Tony Stark, learning planning the hard way!

He discovers that the intelligent designer there has a home, and a sister; skating over to drop him off in Imperio, he even finds some unfortunate parallels between the two of them.

Oh, and then two roughs try to boost his bag, except they're not your average roughs:

Oh no, they don't work for your average crime boss.

Indeed, as Tony crashes seemingly dead into a Yinsen hallucination, we see who they report to:

Now who do you think could supply toughs with weaponry like that, have such control over neighborhoods on the West Coast, and number among themselves someone surnamed Stein?

Yup, those guys!

And yes, they're bringing Seth Voelker and friends into play.

(Love how #7's solicit gives him seperate billing, so that it's ' SIDEWINDER and the SERPENT SOCIETY ')

The next few issues should be fun: Tony'll try to rebuild a neighborhood, the Pride and the Society will try to bring him down, and Jim Rhodes'll have his two cents to say.

Wait, isn't The Pride made up of the Runaways' parents?

Do you think the kids are gonna make a cameo? I'd like to see how Molly would react with Tony.

Well since this seems to take place well before Runaways they won't know about their parents being supervillians and probably wouldn't be very old.

Neat! Is this set in the past or some alternate timeline? I've not been following.

Neat, I love these 'fuck current continuity just tell a good story' Marvel books. I'll try and pick it up.

Yes, Tony is now destitute, but apparently isn't constantly drunk. It's been a while since I read those issues, but it seemed Tony was drunk constantly from IRON MAN #165 to #183. From #184-#200, Tony then had this whole "If I become Iron Man again, will I start drinking again?" problem.

The Pride, yea!

This should be cool, we never really saw them in action, just that they kept the lid on things in LA.

Is this a mini though? Or a flashback. How are they justifying telling a story this old?

Ongoing about Tony Stark's history for new Iron Man fans. Marvel is offering it for subscription so it has to last at least two years or be replaced by another Iron Man title.

Yeah, Van Lente's hit or miss for me but the riff on Spidey's "I bet x never has to worry about y!" refrain is hilarious.

I think it also points out that Spidey is in many ways "outside" the regular superhero business. With very few exceptions people don't know a lot about him, even his friends.

I am always amused by scenes in which average citizens or fellow heroes speculate that he must be independently wealthy with a Spider-Cave and millions of dollars' worth of equipment and a butler because it's the only possible way he could do as much as he does.

I love Van Lente, I love Iron Man, I don't know why I'm not buying this. Oh, wait, I know. It's because I'm poor. :(
