MarvelNOW! teases Iron Man: Secret Origin

February 6th, 2013 by Marc Comments

What is the secret origin of Tony Stark? Stay tuned to for more news behind the biggest Iron Man story no fan can miss!

It looks like the folks at Marvel are looking to freshen up Tony Stark’s origin with Secret Origin coming in May. This could be an interesting move, but it’s worth noting that DC has already ran with the Secret Origin moniker for Green Lantern and Superman, both written by Geoff Johns. I don’t know what they can or will change, but I can say that Johns’ approach with the DC character was a refreshing take on the well known origins of Green Lantern and Supes. Maybe Marvel will look to do the same with Iron Man.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
