The Rise of Stark Sentinels is key to The Fall of X

Stark Industries is pursuing a new venture—the extermination of mutants!

New mutant-hunting sentinels upgraded with Stark technology will emerge and make their first moves against mutantkind in the pages of Gerry Duggan and Juan Frigeri’s current run of Invincible Iron Man! The debut issue saw Tony Stark hitting rock bottom after losing everything—including his own company. Feilong, the mutant-hating industrialist from Duggan’s X-Men, is now in control of Stark Unlimited’s incredible resources and plans to use them in Orchis’ vicious war against mutants. In the months ahead, this will cause the trajectory of Iron Man’s super hero career to change radically and in the process, he’ll evolve into one of mutantkind’s staunchest allies. The X-Men will need his genius intellect more than ever as Krakoa braces itself for The Fall of X! The upcoming story arc is set to upend mutantkind’s current status quo, and Invincible Iron Man will play a key role…

Fans can witness the impending might of the STARK SENTINELS in this year’s Free Comic Book Day 2023: Avengers/X-Men #1 on May 6. In the meantime, check out Juan Frigeri’s design sheet below and stay tuned for more new about Invincible Iron Man

Review: Invincible Iron Man #1

Invincible Iron Man #1

When life gives you lemons, what does one do? When you have hit rock bottom, how much lower can you go? These are the questions that one hopes they never have to answer. This is when we all wonder how much more can life throw at us, and if we can keep standing.

I think most of us feel like we get have been there, but someohow some way, fate has different plans. This is why our will to fight is important especially when things don’t go our way. It is that will that tries us  time and time again and allows us to rise to the occasion. In Invincible Iron Man #1, we find Tony Stark in the fight of his life.

As Invincible Iron Man #1 opens, we find Tony Stark at his lowest. He has lost his company, his fortune, and has become a shadow of his former self.  Then one day everything gets even worse, as an explosion of his apartment building , levels it and kills and injures innocent individuals that just so happen to be Tony’s neighbors. This just puts more pressure on Tony as the little fortune he still has sees more strain in the aftermath. Who blew up the building? Was it a mistake he made or is someone out to get him? The issue builds the paranoia well keeping readers guessing until the last third when things are teased as to what’s going to come. But, even that leaves Tony with more questions than answers.

Overall, Invincible Iron Man #1 is a fun debut issue which gives a fresh remix to this very familiar character. The story by Duggan is exhilarating. The art by the creative team is remarkable. Altogether, a story that will have readers find their excitement for this character renewed.

Review: Invincible Iron Man #1

Invincible Iron Man #1

With a new volume, I thought I’d dive in and see where Tony Stark was in his life/crisis. I read a bit of the last volume but fell off, not because of quality but mostly the amount of comics to keep up with. So, going into Invincible Iron Man #1 I was mostly unaware of where things are in Tony’s life. Thankfully, the comic does a solid job of catching readers up as it rockets into a new direction and adventure.

Written by Gerry Duggan, Tony’s at a low point in his life. Told through a narrative as he works on his autobiography, we’re given the quick recap of where things stand. He no longer has his fortune or his companies. He’s living in a brownstone in New York City. He’s down to a couple of suits of armor. He’s on fumes is the general sense of where things are at. But, he still has his mind and can invent things, so he’s not completely down and out. Unfortunately, someone’s trying to kill him.

When Tony can’t get lower, he does exactly that losing the last bit of things he has to hold on to and convinced someone’s trying to kill him. Well, he’s right there and that opens up the mystery to come as a villain, either a new one or one from his past, is making his life a further living hell.

The art by Juan Frigeri is solid. With color by Bryan Valenza and lettering by Joe Caramagna, the comic looks good and delivers its punches well. What really works is the balance of how the story’s told and the art. For the most part it’s a voice over with Tony recounting his life as he dictates his autobiography. The visuals act as almost a montage of where things are with a slight picture frame delivery of the art. The comic is also able to balance delivering the punches of an explosion and battle with the dour moments of Tony as he slips out of control. It’s a superhero comic but one with a bit of gloom hanging over it. The art captures the sadness.

Invincible Iron Man #1 is a great start that does an excellent job of balancing what has been going on with what’s to come. It should continue to hook and excite long time readers while acting as a perfecting starting point for new ones as well.
