Here’s the solicitation details and cover for Invincible Iron Man #5 by Brian Bendis and Stefano Caselli, out today.
The world now knows about Riri Williams and what she can do. So other heroes come to court her for their super-teams and villains come looking for revenge on Iron Man.
• Welcome to the Marvel Universe, Riri Williams! (Oh, and Deadpool.)
The cover fits the solicited story perfectly. Except that’s not actually the story in the comic book at all. None of the people on the cover are in the comic, aside from Ironheart.
Maybe someone in editorial noticed that they weren’t putting out the same comic that they sold in – and was concerned about the people who were buying it just because Deadpool was in it. And what they would do if he wasn’t…
Well, looks like Stefano Caselli had Brian Bendis’ back.
Look! There he is after all! Now the comic book is no longer returnable…
