Marvel.com has revealed the new look of Iron Man, which Billionaire playboy Tony Stark will wear and ride into "Siege". With "Stark: Disassembled" running its course and chronicling Tony's return from the abyss that is his lost mind, this armor design is a fitting "rebirth" of sorts for the brilliant industrialist, and according to writer Matt Fraction, its design is said to be based on an "ergonomic and aerodynamic" standpoint - an Iron Man that is "leaner, sleeker, and tougher" combined. It's an interesting armor design, and one that bares a closer resemblance to the Mark III design used in the Iron Man movies, save for the additional and prominent gold outlines. Set to debut on "Invincible Iron Man #25", Stark's new look symbolizes the return of his prominence as a hero, and together with Captain America and Thor, reunite the world's mightiest heroes as they face Norman Osborn and his lackeys amidst the siege of Asgard.
