Iron Man and Black Cat seek answers in ‘Iron Cat’ limited series out in June

Both Black Cat and Iron Man thought they had seen the last of the IRON CAT armor.

Press Release

Marvel Comics has revealed Jed MacKay and Pere Perez are teaming up for a new series called Iron Cat. Wait, that sounds familiar…oh yes, Marvel was teasing the introduction of the character way back in 2020! The five-issue series will see MacKay return with another Felicia Hardy aka Black Cat tale only she’s not Iron Cat this time. It was announced earlier today at ComicsPro that Iron Cat and Iron Man will be teaming up with Pere Pérez on art. Fans can find the first issue in comic shops in June.

“Curiosity may have killed the cat, but as always, satisfaction brings it back. It was with a heavy heart that we said goodbye to the ongoing BLACK CAT series last year, but now what would have been the next arc in that series lives on in its own right–IRON CAT!” MacKay said. “The fan-favorite Iron Cat armor returns… but who’s in it this time? It certainly isn’t Felicia Hardy, as the Iron Cat comes gunning for her right off the bat. It’s a rare pleasure to have a second chance to pick up a story that you thought lost, and I’m really excited for people to rejoin Pere and I on another Black Cat adventure!”

So what’s Iron Cat about?

Both Black Cat and Iron Man thought they had seen the last of the IRON CAT armor. And if Felicia is surprised to see the armor again, you can imagine how furious Tony is. There’s someone new in the Iron Cat armor and they have a plan that will put them in the crosshairs of all the heroes of the Marvel Universe. Both Iron Man and Black Cat’s secrets and mistakes are going to come back to haunt them, and it’s going to get ROUGH!

“I’ve been reading Jed’s BLACK CAT series for a while now, and it’s great to be a part of this storyline,” Pérez said. “I mean, there’s heists, chases, fights, Iron Man… You can’t go wrong with that. We’ll also see how some parts of Felicia’s past come back to haunt her. Felicia and Tony’s worlds are pretty much opposite, so you can imagine how crazy things can get if you make those two work together. Can’t wait to show everybody what we are cooking.”

The series will feature multiple covers with a main cover by Pérez, and variant covers by Skan, Ron Lim, and John-Tyler Christopher. Check those out below.
