Armor up for an Iron Man epic like no other in Iron Man: Fatal Frontier—the latest game-changing Infinite Comic hitting digital devices this October! Following Wolverine: Japan’s Most Wanted, Iron Man: Fatal Frontier is designed specifically for mobile devices and fully embraces the technological opportunities. Representing the latest form of comic book storytelling using tablets and smartphones as a new canvas, each new Marvel Infinite Comic continues to take advantage of modern technology while staying true to medium’s greatest strengths!

Blockbuster writer Kieron Gillen (Iron Man) & red hot writer Al Ewing (Avengers Assemble) team with fan favorite artist Lan Medina (Venom) to launch Tony Stark into the cold depths of space for a star-spanning adventure that only an Infinite Comic could contain! When an powerful new element is discovered beneath the moon’s surface, a cosmic gold rush breaks out between the Marvel Universe’s greatest factions and foes—including the Master of Evil himself, Doctor Doom. As chaos erupts, Iron Man must race to the moon—yes, THE MOON—for a knockdown, drag-out war with the Lord of Latveria.

This ties into the continuity of the monthly Iron Man book and you’ll see characters from Kieron’s run playing crucial roles in this story,” explained Marvel Senior Editor Mark Paniccia. “But…something big is going to happen in Iron Man: Fatal Frontier that will impact Tony in moving forward and Tony may never be the same.”

Fueled by the overnight success of Infinite Comics, and combined with the demand from fans and creators who saw a world of infinite potential in this new format, these stories are designed specifically for mobile devices and fully embracing the technological opportunities.

“When it comes to technology, Iron Man is always three steps ahead of world,” said David Gabriel SVP of Publishing, Print & Digital Sales. “With all the technological innovations that the Infinite Comics hold, Tony will feel right at home in a comic that’s light years ahead of anything else.”

With this strange element up for grabs, who will claim what might be the greatest power source in the Marvel Universe? Can Iron Man quell the lunar grudge-match and the might of Doom without attracting the entire galaxy’s attention? Find out in Iron Man: Fatal Frontier this October!

Available right at your fingertips, these new Infinite Comics will be available for purchase this October on the Marvel Comics app (for iPhone®, iPad®, iPod Touch® & AndroidTM devices) and online in the Marvel Digital Comics Shop![/quote]

Voici un extrait du premier épisode de Iron Man: Fatal Frontier esquissé par Carmine Di Giandomenico, et dessiné par Lan Medina:

[quote=« Al Ewing »]That’s our new bad guy, or misunderstood-guy. Udarnik, which translates to English as Shockworker, which is a great name. He’s been on the moon since the early '70s, waiting for people to come back, and nobody ever did. (Apart from the superheroes, but that was largely on the dark side, and they never ran into each other.) Recently, he’s discovered a power source that’s finally allowing him to take decades of loneliness out on the people of Earth, and Tony’s going to have to go up there and do something about it – which is where our story proper begins.

Then there are the other bad guys – a couple of whom are imported from Kieron’s « Iron Man » run, and one brand new co-creation that should hopefully stand the test of time and will also be featuring in « Mighty Avengers. » [/quote]

Cette histoire d’Iron Man shérif du far west sur la nouvelle colonie lunaire suite à une ruée vers l’or me rappelle un vieux Picsou de Carl Barks.
Aussi, lorsque Bill Mantlo écrivait Iron Man il avait écrit une histoire spatiale (mode Star Wars) avec un subplot jamais résolu, celui d’un oeuf sur la Lune.
Quelle que soit l’inspiration de Gillen, cette histoire est assez ennuyeuse.
