  • Iron Man to be renumbered to Issue 500 of Invincible Iron Man in Jan 2011
  • New Series IRON MAN 2.0 by Nick Spencer. Starring James Rhodes! The future of war, and the future of private corporation will be explored!
  • Onslaught Unleashed: Coming in Feb 2011 by Sean McKeever, Onslaught in the 90s was the major threat, he has been in the negative zone, and time there has moved a lot more quickly and thus he has been waiting a long long time to get his revenge

Lots and Lots of stuff there! I’m most excited about the Trial of Captain America! my prediction is that Steve Rogers will be Captain America by the end of it (or at least in time for the Movie)
