With Riri Williams taking over as Iron Man, it is only a matter of time before she and the current Iron Armor owner meet. There are no mentions of when this will happen in the upcoming solicitations but rumors are pointing to issue Invincible Iron Man 12.
It is of interest to note the solicitation does nothing to mention this so it could catch retailers off guard.
What always is of concern is how important of a meeting this will be. Will it be an important event, Tony stepping down and handing over the reins, or just a casual meeting. Talking with a speculator friend this morning and we both mentioned that the cover that is being used in the solicitation for Invincible Iron Man 12 is that of Invincible Iron Man #11.
This could signify the cover to Invincible Iron Man 12 could show an important event that Marvel does not want to spoil. (We will of course have the cover spoiler and issue spoilers before the 8/3 release date.)
Regardless, if you have been “in” on Invincible Iron Man #7 and Invincible Iron Man #9, Invincible Iron Man 12 should be a book to watch and possibly get orders in early.
