Tony Stark wants to recreate the world in his image. So he puts everyone in armor. Can you think of anyone so egotistical than that? But no, apparently Battleworld was a great opportunity for the billionaire mogul, as amongst the ruin he has built a tower of Babel on to himself call Technopolis. But like every man-made Eden things take a turn for the worse and Stark and his so-called Utopio get knocked down a few pegs. His metropolis gets hit with an epidemic that forces everyone to wear Iron-Man suits of armor in order to breathe. Not a good look for your first run as a mayor of your kakistocracy Technopolis, but you can expect the comic panels to be though.
This June, suit up and strap in as the Secret Wars bring you to a tecno-utopia, with a dark and sinister secret! Here’s a look at ARMOR WARS #1 – a brand new Secret Wars series from Eisner-award winning writer James Robinson and artist Marcio Takara! Deep in the heart of Battleworld lies Technopolis. A shining beacon of progress for all Battleworld to see. Full of science and wonder created by the two genius brothers – Tony and Arno Stark. Yet shadows fall over this armored paradise. A unique disease that forces EVERYONE to wear armor just to live and breathe! And when an unexpected murder strikes his domain, Baron Tony Stark must race against the clock to identify the culprit. But is he too late to stop more bodies from showing up?
