Writer Gail Simone will pen an arc of Tony Stark: Iron Man tying in with War of the Realms, as revealed by CBR.
Alongside artist Paolo Villanelli, Simone will take Tony Stark into the interdimensional war as he attempts to hold Malekith's forces off from Avengers Mountain.
"The weird thing is, completely out of the blue, years ago, this idea for an Iron Man story popped into my head. It was unlike anything I’d read with Tony before, but just sounded really entertaining. It was such an odd premise, though - I was positive I’d never get to write it," Simone told CBR of the story's premise. "Then, Tom Brevoort wrote and asked if I’d like to do this, and because it’s War of the Realms, my idea just fell completely in place. It feels weirdly like destiny. I keep trying to wrap my head around it, how did I get this plot for this particular event, years before it even came up? It’s just one of the weirdest, coolest things I’ve had happen to me."
Simone and Villanelli's arc will run for two issues starting with May's Tony Stark: Iron Man #13.
