Gillen's Iron Man #17 Features Major Tony Stark Retcon (Spoilers)


Today's issue of Iron Man #17 features a major retcon in the life of Tony Stark.

Spoilers follow.

Earlier this morning Marvel let loose the specific details about the issue through the Associate Press.

It turns out that Tony Stark is actually the adopted son of Howard and and Maria Stark.

It also turns out they had a son of their own, Arno, who has been "imbued with alien technology proffered by the rogue android 451 — who has been hidden away from the world, laden with unknown abilities and, perhaps, powers."

Fans should recognize the name Arno as the name of the Iron Man from 2020.
