What if Tony Stark was born in the Paleolithic or Middle Ages? The newest slew of Iron Man By Design variant covers re-imagine the hero as a crusader, a cowboy, and a cro-magnon.

In the first batch of Marvel's Iron Man By Design variant covers, Tony was a centurion and ancient Egyptian falconer. These purdy new illustrations shanghai ol' shellhead all across space and time. Also as a bonus, check out the new, strangely detailed Iron Man 2 Big Gulps cups. I guess there's an alternate dimension in which Tony Stark is a Slurpee. Earth-711 perhaps?
