But all that’s about to change when the Superior Iron Man calls up Scott with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! This is his chance to turn it all around. New city. New outlook. New Scott.

He will make you smarter. He will make you beautiful. He will make you healthy. All this could be yours with the new EXTREMIS 3.0. And the Superior Iron Man is ready to give them to you – for the right price!

Today Marvel is proud to present your first look inside SUPERIOR IRON MAN #1, the brand new ongoing series launching as part of Avengers NOW! The new creative team of critically acclaimed writer Tom Taylor (Earth 2, Injustice: Gods Among Us) and fan-favorite artist Y?ld?ray Ç?nar (Supergirl) make their Marvel debuts for a Tony Stark like you’ve never seen him before!

“This is a Tony we haven’t seen since before that fateful heart injury that turned him into one of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes,” says Senior Editor Mark Paniccia. “The smug, over-confident quintessential capitalist is back…and readers are going to get a real kick out of it. Even the most loyal IRON MAN fans will find this a guilty pleasure.”

Spinning directly out of the events of the blockbuster Avengers & X-Men: AXIS, the Tony Stark of old is back! More stylish, more confident, more cunning and more ruthless than ever before. And he’s ready to lead the world into the future – starting with San Francisco! How far would you go for beauty? Power? Immortality? Tony Stark will give it to you, for a terrible cost. Extremis 3.0 has been unleashed upon San Francisco, transforming the City by the Bay into a gleaming metropolis with the “perfect” society.

Only not all is golden this side of the Golden Gate. Daredevil isn’t down with Stark’s new vision of the future, and he’s going to stop at nothing to end this new threat to the city he calls home.

Small Hero. Big Heroics. ANT-MAN #1 – a New Ongoing Series!

This January, the Marvel Universe’s smallest super hero is ready for the big time in ANT-MAN #1, the new ongoing series launching as part of Avengers NOW! Announced this weekend at NYCC, critically acclaimed creators Nick Spencer (Superior Foes of Spider-Man, Avengers World) and Ramon Rosanas (Night of the Living Deadpool) take Scott Lang to new heights!

Scott Lang has never been the world’s best super hero. Heck, most people don’t even think he’s been the best Ant-Man – and the last guy created Ultron and joined the Masters of Evil, so that’s really saying something. But all that’s about to change when the Superior Iron Man calls up Scott with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

“For Scott, being Ant-Man is kind of his one big thing,” says writer Nick Spencer, in an interview with Marvel.com. “No matter how much trouble it’s caused him, or how much it’s cost him, it’s still the thing that plucked him out of criminal obscurity and gave him a chance to be something. And when we open, he’s trying to spin it into something new. He sees an opportunity.”

This is Scott Lang’s chance to turn it all around and be the hero he’s always wanted to be. Sure he’s been to prison! Sure he’s been through a messy divorce! Sure he’s been, um…dead. But this time it’s going to be different. New city. New outlook. New Scott. This time, nothing is going to stop the astonishing Ant-Man! And he’s coming to comic shops and digital devices this January for the all-new ANT-MAN #1!

Comic-Con on Staying; ‘We Will See’

Comic-Con International has responded to the news that the planned $500 million expansion of the San Diego Convention Center appears to be dead, by noting the many factors that go into its planning for the event in San Diego, and hedging when asked what the organization will do with Comic-Con when its agreement with San Diego runs out.

“With regard to the convention center expansion, I can say that any decision to remain in San Diego has always been dependent upon a number of factors, and no one issue could really trump the others,” David Glanzer, Director of Marketing and Public Relations for Comic-Con International told ICv2.  “As an example, we knew when we agreed to stay in San Diego until 2016 that an expanded convention center wouldn’t be complete.  However working with the mayor, city officials, hoteliers and convention center staff allowed us to utilize space outside the convention center facility and mitigate some of those concerns. We now use more ballroom space at area hotels than I think we ever have.  And we are still working on other issues that include space, hotel rates and other logistical factors that need to be addressed if we are to remain in San Diego.  And I am happy to say we continue to have dialogue with those entities and we will see what the future holds.”

That statement certainly makes it seem like Comic-Con could stay in San Diego without a Convention Center expansion, depending on other factors.  As we observed when the news came out, it’s unlikely that any decisions will come quickly.
