Marvel Officially Announces the Superior Iron Man

Marvel has announced the release of Superior Iron Man #1 by series writer Tom Taylor and artist Yildiray Çinar. Beginning in November 2014, Tony Stark will give into his ego and return to his billionaire playboy roots of self-obsession and superficiality.

In a release Taylor explained

He’s self-obsessed. Cunning. Superficial. Superior. He has given Extremis to the people. Extremis can now be downloaded as a mobile app through any smart device in San Francisco and this creates Tony’s idea of a Utopia, which he is very happy to be at the heart of. But not everyone is buying Tony’s Paradise.

Superior Iron Man will also feature recent “City by the Bay” transplant – Daredevil!

Taylor continued in the release:

Daredevil may be blind but he can see the cracks in Stark’s Brave New World. In a way this is all an allegory for the technology that now rules our lives. The corruption that comes from this technology and the dependence we each have on it.

Superior Iron Man #1 will be available this November.

Preview: Malekith Strikes in a First Look at Iron Man #23.NOW!

This March, Iron Man battles for his life against supernatural forces unlike anything he’s ever faces when the blockbuster new story arc Rings of the Mandarins kicks off in Iron Man #23.NOW! From writer Kieron Gillen and artist Luke Ross comes an Iron Man epic that will be remembered for the ages!

The powerful Mandarin Rings have surfaced, seeking new hosts. For months, Tony has clashed against new enemies possessing the destructive powers of one of Iron Man’s greatest foes. But while the rings search for new hosts – a deadly foe seeks to claim all ten for his own!

Malekith the Accursed seeks their power, and with an army of Dark Elves at his back he may just have the power to do it! When a single ring possesses the power to level cities, how can Tony face off against all ten? Thankfully, he’ll find help in the most unlikely of places. But even the help of Marvel UK’s Dark Angel and his brother Arno may not be enough to stop the cataclysmic power of Malekith!

It’s the world’s most cutting edge science versus the most arcane science known to man when Iron Man squares off against Malekith and his armies this Marhc!

Poplitico: President Obama Announces an Iron Man Project

Each week for Poplitico we look at a “political” moment in comics or a “geeky” moment in politics. During a White House manufacturing innovation event, President Obama joked that it was really an announcement that we’re building Iron Man. Again, the President in Geek shows off his nerd cred. It’s a pretty funny moment and worth the watch.

Facebook Fandom Spotlight: Comic Based Movies

It’s Monday and that means a brand new Facebook Fandom spotlight where I look at the statistic of Facebook users when it comes to some part of geek fandom. With so much buzz recently about comic book movies and casting, I thought it might be interesting to look at various comic-based movies and how they did individually and as a series when it comes to gender.

The first thing that stands out to me is that both Catwoman and Elektra have women as the majority of their “likes.” Men in Black as a franchise does well, but though it shows women as a majority, they are most likely just under 50% due to Facebook’s returning fuzzy results with large numbers such as this.

But, what also stands out is Superman Returns being split exactly 50/50 when it comes to men and women. Director Bryan Singer has spoken about how he wanted a movie that would appeal to women as well as men, and it looks like he achieved that according to these numbers.

Many movies on this list came out well before Facebook existed, but overall the results are interesting to me.

Constantine which will soon be a television series does shockingly well when it comes to gender, with 45% women, and the recently rumored Fantastic Four casting had me interested in those results, which was some of the worst when it came to women with 16.67% for the franchise.
