So this happened.
In Fatal Frontier, which is some kind of bonus digital comic I only just discovered on issue #9 and then backread, Tony becomes Sheriff Iron Man, Governor of the Moon. Literally. He befriends a cold-war era robot the Soviets put on the moon (because of course they did) and the robot reveals there’s a new and powerful element to be mined from under the moon’s surface.
Tony, being the first one with boots on the ground, arranges, builds, and rules over Serenity Gulch, the last wild frontier. And he also is its most dangerous criminal element.
This book is genius, you guys. Like, you don’t even notice the crack, the writing is so good. It moves back and forth between Superhero Punch-Em-Up and Space Western and Heist Film flawlessly, and also there are tentacles. (Relax, I’ll post those next.)
