Check out the synopsis for Infamous Iron Man #1:
There is a new Iron Man in town and his name is VICTOR VON DOOM. The greatest villain of the Marvel Universe will try something new. Where Tony Stark failed, Doom will succeed. What is Doom's Master Plan?
It’s unclear as of yet what will happen to Tony Stark at the end of Civil War II, but he’s apparently absent from the post-Civil War solicitations. His International Iron Man series will end -- to be replaced by Infamous Iron Man -- while his Invincible Iron Man title will see 15-year-old Riri Williams suit up instead of everyone's favorite genius billionaire playboy philanthropist.
I'm crossing my fingers Tony will get to retire in style instead of being killed off like Bruce Banner was in last week's shocking issue of Civil War II.
What do you think of Victor Von Doom’s Iron Man-like suit?
