One Flashback from Invincible Iron Man #1

invincibleironman01cover

"There was a lot of chaos going on that spring and summer, and I wrote down in my notebook something about it being like the modern version [of a superhero origin]. Whoever rises above this and becomes that special thing that people look at as inspiration you know is exciting. Who knows who that will be? I literally wrote, right now there’s an 8-year-old kid surrounded by this nonsense and they're going to pull themselves out of this and make something special out of it. What's more heroic than that? It just seemed to me like a classic Marvel origin in a completely modern original setting. No one can argue that this doesn't happen because it happens. And wouldn't it be nice if something cool came out of all of this. That's where RiRi comes from." - Brian Michael Bendis

Meet Riri Williams - Your New Iron Man

Time: What’s been the reception of the character so far (before this announcement)?

Brian Michael Bendis: Thankfully because of my involvement in the creation of Miles Morales and Jessica Jones and some other characters, it’s getting the benefit of the doubt from even the most surly fans. There are fans who say, “Show us the new stuff,” and then there are fans who say, “Don’t do anything different from when I was a kid.” So when you’re introducing new characters, you’re always going to have people getting paranoid about us ruining their childhood.

I’ve been down this road with Miles Morales, Jessica Jones, Maria Hill. I knew I was in good hands with Mike Deodato and other artists who are helping visualize Riri.





So with a brand new character just created this year by Brian Michael Bendis and now suddenly taking over the role of Iron Man in the upcoming seasonal relaunch, let's actually take a moment to look at her earlier appearances.

And suddenly, my mind is blown

By Matt Fraction's writing.

So remember when I said all this crazy stuff had better be some kind of lead up to an epic full-circle finale or else I'll mark it a clusterf*ck?

Well, it all seems to be coming together, and here we see why Fraction's been labeled a good writer and why Larroca is suddenly the perfect artist for this series.

(Invincible Iron Man 524)

A lot happened in this issue, but I'm just showing four pages. )

Three Surprises from Invincible Iron Man 522

In four pages.

1) Pepper's love life
2) Mandarin's story
3) Tony+Ezekiel

And for your reference, it has apparently been 6+ months since Tony was captured by the Mandarin.

This is a cut. It tastes just like raisins.  )

Invincible Iron Man 521 (4 pages)

Two for Stark, two for Resilient, and damn, I'm way too interested to put this down.

So in the last issue (stop hitting yourselfˆ) we saw Tony being put under Mandarin's control. And, along with the hundred other supers Mandarin's got under his power, Tony's basically been locked up with his worst enemies.

Which is fine, because everyone's too scared of Mandarin to do anything.

Meanwhile, at Resilient, things are going well. The team's back to being cheerful, and Carson's got a new line ala Apple Inc. with tech inspired by Tony.

I'm not locked up in here with you. You're locked up in here with me. )
