With the 50th anniversary of Iron Man coming around the bend, Marvel Comics and current “Iron Man” ongoing writer Kieron Gillen alongside incoming artist Dale Eaglesham plan to tell a Secret Origin for the Armored Avenger. While not much is known about the story so far, the publisher released a new teaser image that features The Stark Seven, part of a major secret in Tony Stark’s past. “Secret Origin” is a caper story that takes place in Las Vegas, involving Tony’s parents Howard and Maria Stark, as well as a team of operatives.
“I wanted to do a big story that harkened back to Iron Man’s very beginning,” Gillen said in February. “Basically, this is a question of Tony discovering something that lies in the past…and fits in with everything we know about the Marvel Universe.”
Check out the teaser and solicitation information below.
