The battle rages on. Arno Stark is right now embroiled in a war of attrition against his brother and the Artificial Intelligence that aims to conquer the world. The leader of the Rogue Artificial Life Forms is none other than Tony Stark aka Iron Man himself. The battle with Arno Stark leads Tony to receive a devastating blow at the hands of Arno Stark. Tony Stark is last seen screeching towards the ground and terminal velocity. The fate of the armored Avenger remains vague and unclear.
What we know is that Tony Stark’s legacy in the Marvel Comic Book Universe is coming to an inevitable end as Marvel initiates plans to introduce a new generation of superheroes. And they have chosen a very popular street-level superhero to help fill those iron shoes.
Matt Murdock aka Daredevil – the Man without Fear is back on the streets of Hell’s Kitchen. Matt has recently phased out of his red suit and taken to the original black Daredevil suit instead. After years of being ostracized by the Citizens of New York, he is finally accepted by the public masses when the people have a grand demonstration to show their support for Daredevil. To up the ante and keep up with peoples’ expectations, Daredevil is about to upgrade his suit. That’s right. Matt Murdock, to everyone’s surprise, is about to enter a powered suit of armor and fight crime as the Iron Devil, the bane of all crime in New York and beyond in Marvel Comics.
How the guy transitions into his new role are still up for debate. Daredevil has always been a guy who believes in the toil and sweat equity of any action. The powered suit will nevertheless help him augment his skills but as a believer in the pure human effort, it will probably be an eye-opening excuse for the Man without Fear. Can he actually replace Iron Man is the question? Maybe he will. But will the fans be able to see him in Mr. Stark’s place? We reckon it will be very hard for us all.

Do I really look like a guy with a plan? You know what I am? I’m a dog chasing cars. I wouldn’t know what to do with one if I caught it! You know, I just… do things
