Marvel’s So Predictable: Iron Man Reprints

As predicted, Marvel today announced that they would be reprinting Invincible Iron Man #1 and Iron Man: Viva Las Vegas #1 with new covers. The first will have two variant covers, bringing the total so far for that comic to eight.

Why would they have said only five days ago that they had no plans to reprint? Maybe the answer is hinted by this paragraph from their new printing press release:

Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on all issues of Invincible Iron Man and Iron Man: Viva Las Vegas, as the hero continues to generate buzz all over the world!

Which I translate as: Buy more! Buy more! We’ve got a success so we want to milk it for all it’s worth!

Here’s something else funny. Much as I loved the movie, I laughed at this five-minute synopsis. WARNING! There are all kinds of spoilers! Here’s a non-spoiler sample:

Obadiah: I hope you aren’t going hippy on me with that freaky medallion.

Tony: Nah, it’s just a miniature fusion plant.

Obabiah: On your chest?

Tony: Yup.

Obadiah: That you built with spare parts and an equipment shop that the Mythbusters would reject?

Would be even nicer if the writer knew how to spell SHIELD.
