    Default CBR: Irvine Readies Iron Man for "The Rapture"

    In "Iron Man: The Rapture," Tony Stark's good intentions come back to haunt him in the form of a violent artificial intelligence. We spoke with writer Alexander Irvine about the series, which kicks off in November.

    I'm very excited about this but I just discovered that this is the guy who wrote that Hellstorm story... Anyway, hope this is as great as I believe.

    Didn't we already have a Stark 2.0 miniseries? A copy of his conscious was transferred in to his armor or something like that? I vaguely remember this from either earlier this year or last year....

    It looks interesting. I hope this would turn out be an above average mini.

    I'm a hellstorm fan and never got to read his story, but I read his daredevil noir and thought it was amazing. I can't wait to get this mini. The story sounds intresting and medina's art is beautiful.

    Adam Warren's IRON MAN:HYPERVELOCITY. At least that time, it didn't automatically become evil...

    Then there was the sentient armor saga (that was Ultron, IIRC) and at least one of his AI's (VIRGIL, I believe) went rogue.

    But that doesn't mean the writing will be bad. But it's an uphill battle.

    That panel with Rhodey (I'm assuming it's Rhodey) looking over Tony's shoulder is kiiiinda creepy.

    Hmmm, first he makes out with Captain America in that Avengers Red Skull story, now this. The evidence is reeeally piling up.

    There was also VORTEX (circa Iron Man #300 or so), the villainous AI who stranded Stark's consciousness in cyberspace when it uploaded itself into his body.

    Now this is art I can get behind!!! Unlike that borderline junk appearing in the Avengers right now. Sorry...I know JrJr has a loyal following, but it just doesn't fly with me. Am I too discriminating? For the price they charge for comic books these days you damn well betcha I am!

    The art looks amazing.

    My only problem is: I'm sort of tired of stories about AIs based on Stark's persona and things going awry with his tech. There was the Sentient Armor, Tony 2.0 from Hypervelocity, the armors controlled by Tony's subconciousness in Execute Program... It's getting a bit tiring.

    And when I saw that Irvine's responsible for the script... Well, for a secong it gave me hope that a different AI will get the spotlight. I utterly adore Jarvis the AI from the Iron Man novelizations by PAD and Irvine (the movies, especially the second one, can't even compare). He was such a compelling character - you just kept on wondering: Is he sentient? Is he his own person, or is he just a reflection of Tony's personality? I loved how Tony's perception of his AI seemed to change with every chapter - from a genderless program, throught he - it - he who acted as if he knew better than Tony what was going on in his mind, to a sentient person who remained by Tony's side even when his human friends abandoned him.

    Fraction tried to bring Tony's AI into Invincible Iron Man, but his J.A.R.V.I.S. - a subservient copy of Edwin Jarvis's personality - just doesn't compare to PAD/Irvine's Jarvis, a smartass Deadpan Snarker, "built to please", changing accents at will and making Stark feel like Dummy on a daily basis.

    I would love Irvine to use Jarvis in an Iron Man comic someday. Lots of potential there, both for humour and for a darker, morally ambiguous story.
