You know what I mean "let's trash and replace the original with a newer, edgier or sjw, or allegedly superior version"

How many times had Tony gone thru this?

1. Denny o'Neils alcoholiam arc where rhodey suits up

2. Crossing Teen Tony Iron Boy

3. Heroes Reborn until the original is restored by Heroes Return

4. Dark Avengers/Iron Patriot

5. Superior Iron Man gave a corrupted original who is killed off in the Convergence/crisis/Secret Bore then restored after the big reboot

6. Civil Bore 2/Ironheart

7. Ah yes...Tony dies and is on ice until his techno nervous system is reprogrammed, Rhodey takes over with the new War Machine suit

8. now this 2020 sales gimmick

It's because they are not capable of original writing anymore. Sure this gimmick can work once in a while a few months or issues at a time every 10-20 years. But they are overplaying it.

You can add in Eddie March and Whoever the Guardsman guy was. From the under 100's. Maybe even the teenage daughter of Yinsen and more I am sure. There was also the LMD in the pre-issue 20's I think...so they have done the rogue AI thing taking his place a few times as well. Yeah...just done with it.
