Marvel’s Iron Man 2020 event will see the return of series and characters like Force Works, Machine Man, Ironheart, Rescue, andWeapon.EXE, as Bleeding Cool informed you previously. But it looks like the event will also feature the return of Tom DeFalco, who joins Christos Gage as co-writer of 2020 Machine Man. The creative teams were revealed in Marvel’s February solicitations.
In addition, we also now know what Matthew Rosenberg was teasing earlier this week when he tweeted that he would be writing Daisy Johnson in an as-yet-unannounced series. That wasn’t quite true, as we did know that 2020 Force Works was coming, but now we know that Quake will be joining the team and that Rosenberg will be writing along with artist Juanan Ramirez.
Check out the solicits for all of the Iron Man 2020 comics coming in February below, and see Marvel’s full February solicitations here.
