    Personally I'm ok with it. Stark is a mainstay with Marvel. Not really had anyine else hold the moniker of IRON Man and that means something with the change.


    I wonder if they will have a Batman Beyond like relationship. Shouldn't be a permanent thing, we really ought to see this character come into her own and shape the Iron Man ethics and moral compass to her own. Maybe like the 1930 technocrats

    It's not like they're fucking with other religions' deities this time *coughThorcough*


    Then again some people practically worship Marvel, so...

    So...

    "I think what's most important is that the character is created in an organic setting. We never had a meeting saying, 'We need to create this character.' It's inspired by the world around me and not seeing that represented enough in popular culture."


    That last sentence almost contradicts the second. In essence, "We don't decide that it needs to happen, but I think that it's not happening enough -- which means I think it needs to happen."


    This is a topic that I mentioned in my journal yesterday before this episode. Strange coincidence.

    Not really much point giving a spoiler warning in your video when the spoiler is in the title...

    "There are fans who say 'Show us the new stuff' and fans who say 'don't do anything different than when I was a kid." Seems like you've found a way to piss off both groups Bendis. Yet again using the facade of diversity to cover the fact that they have no new ideas when its so readily obvious that you can make successful new characters. The MCU got people to love a character next to nobody knew in a giant talking tree that says 3-5 words. But nope, they've just gotta slap a new face on old characters and then claim that anyone who thinks that's just lazy is a bigot. Way to go Marvel. Bring on the hate, I know it's coming, just putting in my two cents.

    I wonder if others share my opinion on comic book hero diversity

    iron man is an idea represented by a suit, so are captain america & spiderman, if a new character takes on the mantle organically it makes perfect sense regardless of race/gender/etc

    i just hate changes that don't make sense. a new hulk, who has the same characteristics as the old hulk (big, muscly, green) but just a different face, is stupid

    also jane foster is mildly stupid. she's not thor, she has the power of thor...thor was his name, not just a costume he put on when he picked up the hammer. don't get me wrong, jane foster is a good choice for being worthy of the power but don't have her use his name

      I think it might depend on how iconic the person in the suit is. They've had at least 4 Green Lanterns and 4 Robins, but they can't really change Superman without doing something really major to reality. Granted, I'm using DC not Marvel as references.

    Seems kinda weird to just suddenly completely change a character like that. Is this common for comics?

    God the YouTube comments are just cancer. Glad to see people are generally okay with the change here. I'm fine with it but will always be a Stark fan. But let's also be realistic here, this is a comic book so just give it a few months before Stark dons the suit again and the title for the comic will be "Return of the King" or something like that. Good change though, not too happy she's 15 but eh we'll see where it goes.

      So you're applauding a publicity stunt that you yourself just admitted won't have any lasting effects on the character?

      @RyanSmith5 Yes I am, mostly because I have the foresight to know that in terms of lasting effect, won't change much in terms of Tony Stark in terms of his survivals as a living character, but I'm glad they finding different avenues to bring on new storylines to further match a community of people that's growing more diverse day by day. Some people say "Just make a new hero," which could've happened, but in terms of that working out in the long run is very slim if you were to just throw one out in the wild, whereas this might boost sales. When Kamala Khan became Ms. Marvel, there was apparently a big uptake in sales, same goes for Jane Foster ascending to Thor.


      Ashley and Gray in the video even go over some instances where the two can co-exist, like Miles Morales Spidey and Peter Parker. Same goes for Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson with Captain America. If anything this might just be a lead up to Riri Williams has her own spin-off comic (if successful) or fizzles out (if sales tank). I think this type of move works really well because in my own case, when the "Superior Spider-Man" was first brought up I was upset because of the dramatic change, but found myself reading it more and more because I was both wondering where it was going to change back, and the big effects it would have. I was not disappointed.


      And we also don't know if Stark will be alive during this change (which I'm betting he lives and acts as sort of intel officer for Riri as a pseudo-Jarvis). You say it might not have any lasting effects on the character but who knows it might. With some people in Tony Stark's life absent, the introduction of Riri might give him a new friend or just someone to overall give him a mentor-like status to him.

      It also might be permanent. People thought Wolverines death and replacement with X23 was temporary, but as far as I know it's still the case.

      @DarkTempler7 That is correct! But because of comic book rules, X-23 exists as "Wolverine" whereas an existing Logan"exists in his own separate series called "Old Man Logan" where he's just an old badass without the yellow spandex

      True. And I did forget that she had an actually relationship with him prier that event. She is a clone of him and was treated as his daughter, so it did make a kind of sense that she'd take up his mantle if he were to die and stay dead for any span of time. I don't really read comics, but is this person majorly connected to Tony Stark at this time?

    • RyanSmith5 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      My point was that Tony Stark is Iron Man. There are certainly other people who've taken up the mantle but they're all forgotten. Why? Because Tony Stark is Iron Man. This is a publicity stunt to rile up the fanbase and to pander. Plain and simple. God forbid people take umbrage when they feel patronized or think that a company is being patronizing.

    I love this idea, maybe keep Stark around but as a full time designer or something. He could even become like Old Bruce from the Batman Beyond series.

    I'm fine with everything but the age. I feel like Iron Man should be an older character, not a child.

      i don't know we know marvel has a routine when it comes to younger characters if they seem to perfect at first they will pt a large scar on them soon. just as an example uncle ben dying and spidey breaking gwen,s back while trying to save her

      I think the general idea is, and this might sound weird, so that they age more realistically. When we first met most of the heroes we have today they were 20-30 on average...back in the 1960's. They're only slightly older today. Maybe this will allow them to buff out a bit of that uncanny valley of age comics have been hanging in for so long.
