It would have been nice to have this on the official Marvel Comics site to avoid relying on scanlations.

If they're adapting a western franchise, the least they could do is add some color to it to make it seem more like American superhero comic books. What the hell man.

I dunno, the Big Hero 6 and Spider-Man manga weren't in color either.

Tony Stark, the hero who is covered in wounds, is worried. Is continuing to fight really connected to protecting the one he loves? The special one-shot that will be continued in the film itself!


I'm not sure WHAT the heck that has to do with A2:AoU Confused , unless they're trying to create a bridge with Iron Man 3, for Japanese who don't know the character canons that well to begin with.

Tony's face looks terrible in that scan. Just why?

Looks interesting. Will read if it gets a translation online. I doubt this ever get a legit US release though. Probably won't even be considered part of the official MCU timeline, but oh well.

No, I'm asking why do they feel this should exist.

Just: Because Iron Man's one of the few Marvel characters that happens to be a hit in Japan.

I can see why.

And I think being in black and white is just manga's thing. The authors usually don't have time to color everything in. I would love to have My Hero Academia in full color, for instance, but I'll settle for just the cover pages, which are formatted like an Amekomi cover.
