EXCLUSIVE: "The Invincible Iron Man" #1 variant cover by Billy Tan
Marvel Comics has provided CBR News with an exclusive first look at the "Invincible Iron Man" #1 variant cover by Billy Tan. On sale May 7, the new Tony Stark series written by Matt Fraction ("The Immortal Iron First") and illustrated by Salvador Larroca ("Newuniversal") will run concurrently with the existing intrigue title, "Iron Man: Director of S.H.I.E.L.D.," and is touted as providing readers new and old with a more action-packed depiction of the classic superhero.

"Tony Stark is equal parts James Bond and Chuck Yeager--a pioneer, a test pilot, an engineer, an adrenaline junkie visionary," said Fraction in a statement from Marvel. "Iron Man is the ultimate achievement in what we, as humans, can become. He's not the product of cosmic rays or a radioactive spider. He is the triumph of human ingenuity over the frailty of the human form."

A bold new ONGOING TITLE for the biggest hero of 2008!

IRON MAN! You know you love him! And as the summer’s most anticipated movie boot-jets its way into theaters, here’s the perfect jumping-on point for new readers and Iron Man fans alike! Tony Stark -- Iron Man, billionaire industrialist and director of S.H.I.E.L.D. -- faces the most overwhelming challenge of his life. Ezekiel Stane, the son of Tony’s late business rival and archenemy Obadiah, has set his sights, his genius and his considerable fortune on the task of destroying Tony Stark and Iron Man. What’s worse, he’s got Iron Man tech, and he’s every bit Iron Man’s equal and opposite…except younger, faster, smarter…and immeasurably evil. Rising star writer Matt Fraction (IMMORTAL IRON FIST) and superstar artist Salvador Larroca (UNCANNY X-MEN) join forces to repulsor-ray your comic books to a cinder!
