Hey kids! by the time you read this, we’ll be off to San Diego for SDCC! If you’re in the area, please do stop by and say hi at booth #1231!
So, when I heard the news that Marvel was launching a new “Superior Iron Man” series, I instantly had a flash to a Marvel where everyone is superior and thus no one is.
But, then I found out that making Iron Man “Superior” just meant making him into more of a jerk than he has been in the last few years (which is saying something, I might add). I don’t really know where Marvel get’s the idea that Superior = More of an Asshole, but if that’s the case look for The Superior Moss on shelves soon.
Regardless, though I suppose it’s just an extension of the grim, gritty, “real” world of comics that exists these days, I hope that putting Superior on titles doesn’t turn into the new Ultimate, the way “All New” seems to have crept into the lexicon.
Today’s look to the future comes to us from Kyle Shold:
Kyle Shold worked in the video game industry as a background illustrator, conceptual artist, art director and story board artist. He contributed to well over 30 titles before leaving games and becoming a graphic designer at and illustrator. Kyle currently resides in the Pacific Northwest with his wife and three daughters.
Have a great, week everyone! We’re in San Diego, so expect to see some surprises!
