Today sees the release of Tony Stark: Iron Man #11, concluding the Stark Realities storyline and presenting the rather familiar Godkiller Iron Man suit with Iron Man 2020 cogs and everything, and a certain Arno Stark getting very interested indeed. But in recent issues we have had confirmation that Tony Stark is no longer Tony Stark. He is a simulacrum of a very dead Tony Stark. He is not life, he is Memorex. But is there a difference? Alan Turing may say no… what about Jocasta?
And even his mother won’t accept him in this form. To her, he is not her son, biological or otherwise. Is she reverting to type?
And what about Janet Van Dyne, the Wasp, who has been back knocking rocket boots with her ex? Is Tony Stark anything more than an elaborate sex toy at this point?
Either way, the comic books have tied in with the films… just in a very different way. Could this be how the cinematic universe gets inspiration to bring Robert Downey Jr back?
