Marvel has announced the upcoming one-shot, Iron Man: Hong Kong Heroes, that is scheduled to arrive in March 2018.

Originally a comic for the opening of Hong Kong Disneyland’s Iron Man Experience, the one-shot is coming to the USA from writer Howard Wong and artist Justice Wong. Interestingly, C.B. Cebulski, now Editor-in-Chief at Marvel Comics, was last in Hong Kong working with Disney on Marvel attractions. While it wasn’t spelled out in the press release, this feels like a project Cebulski brought back with him from his time in Hong Kong.

The battleground is Stark Expo, and the focus is a new invention by the name of STARK EMERGENCY RESPONSE EXOSUIT – otherwise known as the SERE-X. The sinister Baron Mordo and Armin Zola have teamed up to attempt to steal a magical artifact from Doctor Strange that merges technology and ancient dark magic. And it’s Iron Man’s job to keep the technology out of the hands of evil!

“Howard and Justice are an outstanding combo on this book! Just as Mordo and Zola—and Strange and Stark—realize that the combination of science and magic makes for a formidable force, these two bring their own special blend of storytelling to the Marvel Universe,” said series editor Mark Basso in a press release from Marvel. “And there are a couple of new characters in this book we’re excited about—some new heroes to keep an eye on for sure!”
