As if one surprising new character becoming Iron Man wasn’t enough for a single week, Marvel Comics has got another one for you. A new comic called Infamous Iron Man will feature Victor Von Doom in Tony Stark’s red and yellow armor.
Yes, that Victor Von Doom. Better known as Dr. Doom.
Comic Book Resources broke the news of the character crossover, which will be shepherded by the team of Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev. Infamous Iron Man will take over for that team’s International Iron Man when it’s published this fall.
According to CBR, “This move is an extension of storylines in the current Bendis-written Invincible Iron Man series, which has seen Von Doom seek rehabilitation, following his physical transformation at the end of the 2015 Secret Wars event series.” Here’s the full cover.
There’s also a good chance the Infamous Iron Man will cross paths with the Invincible Iron Man, 15-year-old Riri Williams. That should be interesting.
