Iron Man to propose marriage in ‘Iron Man’ #20

Will Hellcat say yes to marrying Iron Man? Find out May 30th!

Press Release

Marvel Comics has revealed the solicit and covers for Iron Man #20 out in May and it appears he’s popping the question to Hellcat! The two have been forming a meaningful bond over the course of the first two-story arcs by Christopher Cantwell and it appears they’re taking it to the next level. Fans can find out if she says yes in the issue out May 30th.

Angel Unzueta joins Cantwell in telling this historic moment, plus Marvel also has revealed fans should keep a close eye on June’s Iron Man/Hellcat Annual #1.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Cantwell said in a statement sent to AIPT: “Since Issue #1, bringing Patsy Walker/Hellcat into this story just felt right. She was the perfect kind of grounded presence in Tony Stark’s hyper-octane world that I believed could help bring more balance to his life. Patsy Walker’s best super-power in my mind has always been her ability to be human and sincere. And like Tony, she has had her share of demons in the past (some literal in her case).

So what’s Iron Man #20 about?

Tony Stark has travelled across the galaxy, battled against Korvac, and struggled with gaining new cosmic powers–but he hasn’t faced this epic journey alone. By his side has been his new love interest and partner, Patsy Walker aka Hellcat! In true Marvel fashion, the pair’s blossoming romance has developed amidst a backdrop of interdimensional conflicts and Celestial-level threats. Now in May’s IRON MAN #20, Tony, back on his feet and seeking much-needed stability, will bend down on one knee and ask Patsy to marry him! Could the next Marvel Comics wedding be on the horizon, or will more chaos keep these lovers apart?

Cantwell added, “Both Patsy and Tony have gone through fundamental transformations in this story. And as the dust settles, and Tony sees Patsy as this phenomenal force in his life, he does the only thing he can think to do in order to keep her near him and connected: he proposes they be together for the rest of their lives. Of course, marriage is freighted for Patsy in ways it is for few other Marvel characters. Just one her previous relationships took her to the very depths of hell. It’s not an easy decision for her in the least.”
