Iron Man Does Secret Empire in Tomorrow’s Marvel Action Avengers #2

Secret Empire was a polarizing super-mega-crossover event comic book which revealed that Captain America was secretly a Nazi, made him the leader of Hydra, and pitted him against the other heroes of the Marvel Universe. It was, perhaps, the culmination of more than a decade of Marvel turning its heroes into villains in super-mega-crossover events rather than finding a way to make villains interesting. Sales were down from past super-mega-crossover events, with even a minor Flash/Batman crossover defeating Secret Empire in sales charts. It was a bad idea.

Marvel Action is a new line of comics, published by IDW, and geared at appealing to new and younger readers, perhaps returning a modicum of joy and wonder to the grim and gritty world of mainstream superhero comics. So, what’s going on over in Marvel Action Avengers #2?

Well, it looks like Iron Man is now a member of A.I.M.:

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
