Marvel editor Bill Rosemann said, “As Iron Man fans ourselves, we can’t wait to see the exciting and creative submissions from the Armored Avengers’ worldwide following.” “Just think about it: Not only do you get to choose Tony’s action at the end of each chapter’s cliffhanger, but you also get to jump up on stage and show to the world that you have the best idea for our explosive finale. It’s your opportunity to prove you’re the ultimate Iron Man fan!”
