Following Marvel Comics’ reveal of Esad Ribic’s cover for “Thor: God of Thunder” #2 in anticipation of September’s Marvel NOW! relaunch, the publisher has rolled out a second #2 cover — this time for “Iron Man” #2 by Kieron Gillen with art by Greg Land. Land’s cover sees Tony Stark in front of the Iron Man armor as he attempts to stop the mysterious technological brotherhood of mech-knights known as The Circle.
Gillen and Land were confirmed as the new “Iron Man” creative team last week, and Gillen gave an overview of Tony when the new story arc begins.
“[H]e’s a morally complex guy,” Gillen said at the announcement. “Just the fact that he found himself put in, inarguably, the position of the bad guy for a while, and that he defended it. He crushes it, actually, and there’s a lovely bit in ‘Avengers Vs. X-Men’ where he goes to Cap, ‘You know, you’re actually arguing what I was arguing [in Civil War],’ which I loved.”
Check out Land’s cover and the solicitation info below and stay tuned for more on “Iron Man” and Marvel NOW!
