Apparently come the next few months, Tony Stark won't be Iron Man anymore.
Released by Marvel Comics and shared by Comic Book Resources and Comic Book Movie, the teaser above suggests that a new man will become the armored avenger, as Mr. Stark will resign following the Long Way Down storyline. What exactly happens in that event that forces Tony to give up becoming ol' shellhead is still a mystery, but writer Matt Fraction stated in an interview that he will make him leave the identity, and someone else will become the new Iron Man. Will it be one of his trusted confidants or close friends, or someone totally unexpected? Personally, the new armor looks a little too Tron-like for my tastes, but hopefully there's a good explanation for this. We'll just have to wait and find out when Invincible Iron Man #518 hits comic book stores and retail shops.
