    Saw this over on Newsarama, thought you all might be interested in it... so far this is just rumour, however if it is true it could be a major spoiler so stop now if you don't want to ruin it for yourself.... (also as for the name, it's not mentioned anywhere, I'm just calling this character by that name)





















    last chance.....




















    NRAMA: Over the last week and a half, Brian Bendis has confirmed for Newsarama his New Avengers roster as of next month's issue #27. We asked him some of these same questions just this morning, but as New Avengers is now arguably your flagship franchise in the direct market the questions are appropriate for the Editor-in-Chief...

    JQ: Sure, shoot away!

    NRAMA: First of all, no Cap? How come? Where is he?

    JQ: All will be revealed soon enough. To reveal that would unfortunately reveal our plans for a new book or two…

    NRAMA: And on that note, popular theory hold Steve Rogers will be under the new Ronin suit. What are your thoughts on that theory?

    JQ: You know what they say, clothes make the man, or woman, right? Ultimately I think all these theories are really sound and way off base, all simultaneously [laughs], but you know that I would never confirm one way or another what it is that we're doing with our characters and storylines at the end of Civil War. People are going to speculate no matter what and that's what makes it all fun and cool in the end.

    NRAMA: Well then, you may need to address this for us. Over at Amazon, there's a listing for Iron Man: Steve Rogers?, a new collection of Iron Man coming in June. For spoiler's sake, we won't go into too much detail about the contents, but it appears that Tony Stark will be taking a role with S.H.I.E.L.D. ... first off - many people are suggesting this is misdirection or a teaser cover...is it real? Anything you can say about the description?

    JQ: Sorry, Matt, I went to the link and there's nothing there. Can't help you with this one.

    NRAMA: Okay, there was a listing – and it’s been seen all around, with a figure in a red, white and blue “Iron Man” suit. Publishing strategy-wise, how do things like this get out so early?

    JQ: In all seriousness, this is the constant battle that we have to fight between promoting our books and keeping storylines as secretive as possible. Also, with so many different and growing avenues by which to solicit our product mistakes are bound to occur, especially as all these different avenues have different solicitation cycles.

    It doesn't make me happy, but it's the cost of doing business on a larger scale.

    We ran across this... this morning. From that little interview, it sounds like it may actually show up somewhere. We saw it at ....

    Seems weird that Iron Man needs a shield. Yeah, I know it's just to make him look more like Captain America but it's weird.

    (Yeah knights in armor used to carry a shield back in the day but it's freaking Iron Man.)

    If you check out silver bullets all the rage column they go into detail about the amazon listing and a possible massive spoiler for civil war but its all rumors so who's to say.

    If it turns out to be true though...not sure how I'd feel about it

    that actually looks awesome....as for Steve being Iron America or Tony being Iron America, that's lame.

    Doesn't bother me, but others might be upset at the potentially spoilerific topic and thread without any warning.

    LITG has stated that this is just a rumor. Gotta love those lying scumbags over at marvel.

    could it be....could it be a What If?

    What If Steve Rogers took over the Iron Man Mantel.
    or
    What If Tony Starks took over the Captain America Mantel.



    or seeing that Winder Solider is supposedly taking the CA mantel, could Steve be taking the IM mantel....hmm...all these possibilities. Or like some say, it could be fake. But its nice to imagine. :D

    I have to try catching up on Bullet Points but I haven't heard anything good.

    As for this, who the hell knows but Joe's comments seem to point that it's true and he's not happy.
