Quote:I wonder if that means MJ is staying on in the book? Dan's teased in the past that he 'ships her and Tony...
Quote:I don't care too much about MJ staying. She was special to me because she loved Peter Parker and he loved her. Put her somewhere else and she isn't really that interesting.
Quote:Meanwhile, from the article:
Quote:"What makes Tony an interesting character to you?
Reed Richards explores the universe. He wants to know everything and go everywhere. Tony Stark builds the future. It’s not that he’s not out to discover the next big thing. But he’s gonna take his own two hands and he’s gonna build where he wants to go, or what he wants to do. He looks at a challenge and goes, “How do I machine my way out of this?” When you’re a kid reading comics, there’s a feeling like, if you really wanted to, you could be Batman. You could dedicate your life, you could train and train and train, and you could be Batman. And you read Marvel books and there’s a feeling like, “If you did get superpowers, you would be Spider-Man. You’d be that guy, you’d be Peter Parker. Peter Parker is the guy like you.” Tony Stark is somewhere in between, in that we are not all that kind of … How often is there that level of genius in any person? But more than any character in the Marvel universe, he is the self-made man. You take him out of that suit? He’s a normal man. He makes himself the superhero. He makes himself into the thing he wants. There will be a very unique cast in this book of characters: Iron Man characters you love and Marvel characters that you haven’t seen folded into the Iron Man cast. So, at the end of the day, there’s Captain America with super-soldier serum, and there’s a god of thunder, there’s all these characters around him with these amazing abilities. But his abilities came from his own two hands. He made it, and he stands amongst the gods because of what he can imagine and what he can make. That’s exciting."
Quote:To which I say:
Quote:I think Dan will be good for this book. I hope I'm right.
Quote:The good news is. we already had the "Superior Tony" story, so we don't have to worry about Dan giving us that. Not that I think he would, any way. He doesn't strike me as someone who wants to do the same thing twice.
Quote:I think he will do things that aggravate us - if we make the faulty assumption that he plans to make these scenarios permanent. I would say it's clear that he doesn't plan to make any bizarre stuff permanent. He will put the toys back in the box.
Quote:My biggest hope is that he creates some new villains, and I think we can rest assured he will. It's something he does.
Quote:I also think we will get something very close to movie Stark. It's obviously movie Stark that Dan cares about. Maybe we'll get the humor. Maybe we'll get the nutty professor. Maybe we'll get the presumptuous guy who created Ultron. We don't know where Tony is or what's happening to him. Maybe he's undergoing some sort of experience that will lighten him up (humor, nutty professor) and galvanize him in questionable ways (Ultron guy). We'll see.
Quote:I think this much is a foregone conclusion: We won't be bored.
Well, let's wait and see. Slott said the same things that Fraction and Bendis said when they were about to take over the book and we all saw the amount of damage to the character these runs caused.
On the other hand, Slott has written Spider-Man as an Iron Man light in recent years. Even using Iron Man villains in those stories. And they were good stories.
The question is whether he will have to deal with the mess that Bendis has left, or whether he will start with the house already cleaned.
I had hoped that Marvel would give the book to Christos Gage, Fred Van Lente, or Al Ewing, who are writers who understand and like Iron Man.
