Hitting stands next month, X-MEN #26 and INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #10 will feature the long-awaited wedding between Emma Frost and Tony Stark! Current X-MEN and INVINCIBLE IRON MAN writer Gerry Duggan will deliver this moment that fans never thought would happen, alongside series artists Stefano Caselli (X-Men) and Juan Frigeri (Invincible Iron Man). Teased for years, this highly-anticipated story will tie directly into FALL OF X, the dark new era of X-Men storytelling which officially kicked off in last week’s X-Men: Hellfire Gala #1.
Krakoa has fallen and for the first time in ages, the X-Men have their backs against the wall. FALL OF X calls for bold new alliances and as Emma Frost and Tony Stark’s Hellfire Club partnership strengthens so will their romantic feelings! First, in X-MEN #26, the X-Men are taken aback by Tony’s shocking proposal as well as Emma’s answer of “Yes!” Then, readers are cordially invited to the wedding of Anthony Edward Stark and Emma Grace Frost in INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #10. Come join the lucky couple as they exchange vows. Attire is Hellfire formal. Orchis raid to follow.
In honor of the occasion, acclaimed artist Meghan Hetrick has turned out two stunning variant covers for INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #10. An homage to Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson’s iconic wedding in Amazing Spider-Man Annual #21, this variant cover will be available in two formats, one depicting the characters in super hero attire and one featuring them in fashionable formalwear!
“Neither seems like the marrying type. Why this works, and how this works, and how much fun this is whether their marriage works or not will need to be seen to be believed and you’ll have to buy it to find out!,” Duggan told IGN. “They certainly don’t seem like they’re ready to be married to anyone, let alone to each other, but life can change quickly.”
