Click to viewJust in time for the DVD version of Iron Man's origins hitting stores, Marvel Comics are planning to show you how Tony Stark's crime-fighting career concludes with the November-released Iron Man: The End by fan-favorite IM creators Bob Layton and David Michelinie. Find out how long Stark plans to use his repulsor rays before rusting, and see some more preview art from the comic, under the jump.
Co-writer and inker Layton (Michelinie scripts the comic, and Bernard Chang pencils) explained the idea behind the comic on his website:
Decades in the future, a 70+ Tony Stark is overseeing his ultimate project of his lauded career-the completion of Earth's first commercial space elevator, whose inauguration will change the world's economy and the future of space exploration forever. However, not everyone is looking forward to this project's launch with the same enthusiasm as the head of Stark Universal. Sinister forces are at work, behind-the-scenes, to insure that Stark's pinnacle scientific achievement ends in disaster.
Damn, Tony looks good for someone over 70.
