Marvel Legacy’s Invincible Iron Man #593 begins the road to Tony Stark’s return

Invincible Iron Man 593 Featured

When it returns to it’s classic numbering this fall during the Marvel Legacy initiative, Invincible Iron Man will take part of that initiative name literally as the series deals with the legacy of Tony Stark.

Left near death in a coma following 2016’s Civil War II, Stark’s armor and heroic legacy fell into the hands of Riri Williams and Victor Von Doom, the cured former Doctor Doom. According to IGN, writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Stefano Caselli will remain on Invincible Iron Man this fall when it changes over to #593 and deals with what happens next with Riri, Doom and Stark.

“Well, the theme of Legacy was already very strongly in the forefront story of the Iron Man series,” Bendis said. “Not only has Tony’s mantle been passed on as he lays in a coma, but it’s been picked up by Riri Williams, a newcomer and relative stranger, and Victor Von Doom… who is one of the great villains of all time anywhere. On top of this, Tony had JUST discovered the identity of his birth mother and was just getting to figure some stuff out about himself and his legacy when the events of Civil War 2 came crashing down on him. So we have Tony’s legacy, Riri discovering her place in it, and Victor trying to reinvent his… and that’s just the stuff I’m willing to say.”

While Bendis would not say if there is one true Iron Man to come after Riri and Doom vie to fill Tony’s armor, he did say there would be stories ahead for all of them.

“I promise as unique an Iron Man story as has ever been told,” Bendis said. “All of these characters are in a unique and delicate place and what will come out of it is new and surprising stories for all.”

When asked about a return for Stark, Bendis confirmed that he will return but maybe not fully the way that we know him.

“Yes. But in what shape? Or size? Or armor?” Bendis said.
