  1. Ugh. Iron Man, of all the superheroes, has a great, simple, and contained origin. There is absolutely no need to talk about him as a baby. The Ultimate Universe tried something like this and it was terrible.

    Marvel, too often, can’t leave well enough alone.

  2. What’s so secret about it? Mr. Stark and Mrs. Stark made the beast with two backs, and the better part of 9 months later, little Tony came along. So what?

  3. Didn’t we already rehash all this mommy/daddy stuff while Tony’s mind was “rebooting” during Siege? And if we’ve already seen Iron Man’s origin about 100 times (some of us are old enough to actually remember stories with the full golden armor, if not all the way back to the grey armor) why is it “Secret”? Thus far I’m extremely disappointed at the opening salvo of “Marvel Now”. I can follow the Green Lantern Corps “3rd Army” storyline better than I can some of the stuff they’re doing and promoting.

  4. Can NOT get my hand down my throat enough to GAG may self back into reality!
    What is with all this “cute baby” covers stuff?
    And artwork.
    GROW UP!
    Babies are like bulldogs.
    They are cute until they bite you!
    (Or, you have to clean up all the POOP!)
