Arno Stark takes up the armored mantle in the January launching Iron Man 2020 event series

The Iron Man of the future becomes the Iron Man of today as Iron Man 2020 joins the present day Marvel Universe next year

Way back in Machine Man #2 from 1984, a version of Arno Stark the Iron Man of 2020, Iron Man 2020, made his debut as distanct cousin of Tony Stark and a mercenary that engaged in corporate espionage. A vision of what the future might be.

Now it will actually be 2020 and the modern version of Arno Stark, Tony Stark’s brother, will become the Iron Man that will usher in our future. As announced by Marvel during New York Comic Con, current Tony Stark: Iron Man writers Dan Slott and Christos Gage will be joined by artist Pete Woods to launch a six-issue event miniseries Iron Man 2020 that features Arno taking up the mantle after Tony meets mysterious fate.

“Like the inexorable turning of pages on a calendar, we’ve been building up to the arrival of 2020 and the advent of Arno Stark as Iron Man ever since this latest run began,” says Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “Here, all of the larger themes we’ve been playing with will come to the fore in a big, sweeping, epic action movie that anyone can enjoy!”

Marvel plans to annouce tie-ins to this event later on. Check out the cover and first issue solicit below.
