Hugo and Nebula award
winner Orson Scott Card
will be writing
the upcoming Ultimate Iron Man. Card, best known for his novels Ender’s Game
and Speaker for the Dead
, is a perfect fit to a comic
book about a man who is dependant on machinery to live.
The comic book will be penciled by Marvel super star artist Andy Kubert
It seems a trend with Marvel to launch a new Ultimate line book before the launch of a wide release movie.
They have done so with Spider-man, X-Men, and DareDevil/Electra.
The Ultimate re-works classic Marvel superheroes in a contemporary fashion.
Iron Man already appears in the Ultimates
the Ultimate line's answer to the Avengers. The Ultimates basicly take the fantastic elements of
super heroes and places them in a realistic settings. They deal with current issues such as terrorists and such.
Based on the success of the Ultimates
we can expect Ultimate Iron Man
to be a big hit.
