In what is certainly a nice way to pay tribute to one of the most recognizable superheroes in this day and age, comic book superstar artist extraordinaire Alex Ross has painted a grand variant cover to "Superior Iron Man #1", which signals a new direction for Tony Stark following the events of Avengers & X-Men: Axis.
As featured in Comic Book.com's exclusive look at some of Marvel's November solicitations, here is Ross's epic looking cover, featuring Iron Man's beginnings, his early armors, and time with the Avengers, with the Red & Gold armor prominently in the center of it all!
While it certainly will be a new kind of Iron Man popping out of that series, his legacy will remain a part of the hero/ billionaire/ genius/ playboy/ industrialist that he is. And looking back at his evolution this stellar cover pays tribute to 75 years of Marvel history and ol' shellhead nicely.
