Iron Man Joins Guardians of the Galaxy in New Marvel NOW! Comic Series
Genius, Billionaire, Playboy, Philanthropist, Avengers and now a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy in Marvel NOW! Marvel.com has recently posted an interview with writer extraordinaire Brian Michael Bendis who tells a bit about why this is taking place.
Marvel.com: Iron Man might seem like a surprising new member of the team. Why is Tony Stark with the Guardians of the Galaxy? Does he deserve to be there?
Brian Michael Bendis: He does deserve to be there. He’s in a place at his life where he needs to get a larger perspective on things. He’s a self-proclaimed futurist. He’s the one that’s looking 10 years down the line to see what Earth is going to need and then inventing it.
He got to a place on Earth where he realized that “I need to look wider. I need to leave Earth and look back at it. The Guardians are the perfect example. They are friends, if I stick with them I’ll look at everything in a different perspective. And if the Earth is such a problem right now, this is the perfect place to be. I can head stuff off at the path instead of just dealing with it as it hits us. That sounds like a great idea.”
Marvel.com: With that said, there’s no guilt in his mind about dividing his time between Avenger-ing and hanging with the Guardians?
Brian Michael Bendis: No, it’s a working vacation. Let’s put it that way. He’s working, but sometimes you have to get out of your comfort zone—much like the writer of this book. Leave your comfort zone and go and try different things.
