In July, it looks like Tony Stark will fall off the wagon and relapse into alcoholism – and what’s more, his relapse could have a profound affect on another Marvel hero.
The solicitation for July 24’s Tony Stark: Iron Man #14 says that Tony “may or may not” be drinking again – a state that will lead him to refuse to be Carol Danvers’ sponsor in her battle with her own alcoholism.
Carol’s alcoholism goes back to Kurt Busiek and George Perez’s late-90s Avengers run, in which a change in identity and changing powers led Carol to drink. Tony helped Carol through her addiction, but now it seems his own struggles may lead that bond to slip.
But the solicitation also says Tony has a “high-tech solution” for sobriety – whatever that means.
Here’s the full solicitation and cover by Inhyuk Lee. For Marvel's full July 2019 solicitations, click here.
