Tony Stark has all but bankrupted himself buying up every dangerous piece of tech he’s chased down on the black market network, dismantling it from the inside. As he and Rhodey lock it all up and plan their next steps, Tony and Riri Williams argue over what to do with the most powerful weapon they’ve recovered…the Mandarin’s rings.
Earlier this year, IDWPublishing revealed it was building an expansive, accessible Star Trekuniverse of comic book continuity, debuting with a brand-new ongoing series simply titled Star Trek due for release later this month. Now, IDW proudly forecasts the first expansion of that initiative with the March 2023 launch of Star Trek: Defiant, an ongoing series that sees the fan-favorite Worf assembling a hand-picked crew to face a galaxy-spanning threat.
Described as The Dirty Dozen meets Star Trek, the dark and edgy Defiant series is helmed by two creators with significant comic book clout: Chris Cantwell, writer of such blockbuster projects as Iron Man, Namor, and Star Wars: Obi-Wan; and Ángel Unzueta, artist on Iron Man, Star Wars: Poe Dameron, and The Flash.
In Defiant, someone is killing the gods…but while Benjamin Sisko and the U.S.S. Theseus have been facing the threats in the higher cosmos, very real casualties are growing on lower ground. The true enemy is a man, not a god, and Worf of House Martok has put together his own crew aboard the U.S.S. Defiant in the hopes of defeating the dangerous messiah behind a genocidal cult. Pulling from all eras of Star Trek canon to create something wholly unique and unexpected, Star Trek: Defiant unites some of the strongest personalities in the franchise—including Spock, B’Elanna, Lore, and more—on a mission with very little guarantee of success!
Star Trek: Defiant #1 will be available in March with several variant covers for fans and retailers to enjoy, including covers by series artist Ángel Unzueta, Malachi Ward, Declan Shalvey, David Aja, and Daniel Warren Johnson.

Operating in stealth mode with Jim Rhodes, Iron Man has landed in Macau and immersed himself in SOURCE CONTROL – the worst black market of stolen and illegal technology – all in order to organize a backroom buy of THE MANDARIN’S RINGS. It’s going to require Tony Stark-level capital and strategy, but SPYMASTER may have a different buyer – and a wicked double cross – at the ready in order to pull the rug out from under Iron Man’s boots. It seems someone else is willing to pay top dollar for those rings and is ready to pull them out of Iron Man’s dead hands if they have to… THE COBALT MAN.

Tony Stark has worked hard to pull himself up by his iron bootstraps, and after a few detours, he finally tracks down his old friend and employee Vic Martinelli…only to find he’s arrived too late and Vic’s been murdered. Before a guilt-ridden Tony can get a bead on why, he’s attacked by Vic’s assailant…THE TITANIUM MAN. In the battle, he learns the sinister plot goes deeper. The Titanium Man is working for those even more mysterious, and Vic was killed because he’d gotten possession of THE MANDARIN’S RINGS. Tony flies overseas to Asia and headlong into a cloak of conspiracy, hell-bent on tracking down the rings of his most fearsome adversary, desperate to stop them from falling into the wrong hands. But at what cost? What is Tony Stark willing to sacrifice in order to stop the Mandarin’s power returning, wielded by the hands of a new – and possibly unsuspecting – acolyte? Iron Man is about to go hard. He’s about to buddy up with criminals. And he’s about to go…stealth.
