    Isn’t it iro….nic?

    So yeah Ironman.
    Not popular enough in the Marvel U to be a regular Avenger anymore? Not a problem become a Secret Avenger. Now you can call yourself an Avenger…Even if no one else is.

      Ummm…Iron Man was mentioned a week back as part of the standard U. Avengers team…you fail at keeping yourself up to date sir.

      See here:

      War Machine seems like the most logical choice seeing as he has a new body and would obviously stay away from wielding turrets on his shoulders for the time being.

      You know, adapting and moulding with tanks and fighters would king of make you want to reduce your payload. Heh.

    It _does_ seem to be an armored person, dunnit? Hmmmm… Iron Patriot (with a new pilot) is the wildest guess I got. Besides that, my money is on the favorites — War Mac. & Iron Tony.

    Looks like Noh-Varr in his new costume to me, looking at the arm specifically.

        Possibly…but the lower body doesn’t match Noh-Varr’s.

        Anyone notice that Noh-Varr’s new suit looks like The Kraken’s from The Umbrella Academy??

    Clearly, it’s that guy who played Spiderman on TV in the 70’s.

    Wow Riddler…. that artist does not compliment that costume. But I am leaning toward Noh-Var as well.

    He seems to be flying and doesn’t wear a cape. My guess is someone in a suit (ie Iron Man, War Machine, etc) or Wonder Man. I can’t think of a lot of other flying Marvel heroes that don’t wear capes (though quite a few flying heroines out there).
