    edit: I actually went out of my way to track him on Twitter to send him hate mail. Seriously... This is GARBAGE!
    Popped over to thank you guys for reading! Noticed this post. Yes, thanks for finding me on twitter to share your thoughts. I hope that within the next year, by working very hard, getting up at the crack of dawn every morning, writing my heart out and then finally getting very, very lucky, I may bring one of my comics up from -11/10 to 0/10 in your estimation. I believe that if I do that I will feel that I've matured as a writer, and hopefully stop cutting myself. A zero-sum writer is what I strive for; anything more is just gravy. I simply can't stomach being a writer in the negative review digits. So thank you for the encouragement, but more importantly, thank you for helping the sales numbers on issue 1.

    Big fan of Edmondson's, I bought his whole Grifter run and really enjoyed Who is Jake Ellis?.
    Hm.........

I really hope this story by the end matters in the overall Ultimate Comics UU and not just a mini I can skip. I will pass on the mini for now and if it matters I will go back for it.
    Thanks for sharing! This story will definitely "matter." Marvel is letting me--us--do some pretty important things with the character.

    I'll be excited to see all of "y'all's" reactions come the fourth issue. Be sure to let me know what you think! Unless you hate it, of course. Then just take a nice vacation and let me think that you liked it. ;)

    Well granted Orson Scott Card was allowed to do important things, alongside Jeph Loeb retconning things, but those things are mroe or less now forgotten, ignored or further retconned. Let's hope this some good stuff you got cooking for us.

    PS. Any chance you can confirm your story will mention Gregory Stark?

    Mr. Edmonson, thank you for taking the time to come here and interact with us :) We, the fans, really appreciate when the writers of our favorite stories do this, it sort of makes the stories feel closer to home as well since we can say that we've had interactions with the people that made them possible, and potentially had some sort of influence in some way. You and Brian Wood are here and you both are so far rocking your respective books. Coincidence? I think not

    Also, I know you probably can't say anything, or chances are you don't even know yourself, but is there any chance you'll be sticking around the UU for a while other than your Iron Man mini and helping Wood with X-Men?

    I can't say anything at this point--but feel free to tell Marvel you'd like to see more of me! I hear about it when fan letters come in an mention me. Except when they're bad.

    He will not be in the series.

    Bear in mind part of the goal of this series is to be something you can hand to someone who isn't steeped in the continuity--plenty of it is THERE for the fans, but the story is contained enough to be enjoyed by anyone.

    Now where we go from this book...we'll see!

    Also score on the GC gif. Major celeb crush after Haywire.

    But how do you justify him not being in the series when it goes over his past?

    The writer just avoids the parts of Tony's past with him in it. I mean the only time Gregory Stark is mention is during Miller's Ultimate Avengers run. Where was he during the early days of the Ultimate U? He just was not around. This could be true with Tony's past as well. Heck Gregory could have been out of the US when Tony was younger and that could explain why he is not mentioned in the series. I mean Tony and Gregory did not get along at all. So I could see for the characters they just avoid one another.

    I like to think Plawsky inspires Kitty, and I used to think Brian Wood was inspired by Wyokid when he was writing Jimmy...

    By the way, Mr. Edmonson, sorry; I'm trade-waiting this series. I know it's not great for the industry, but I just don't have enough cash right now. :(

    No apology necessary! Thanks for reading!

    I hope you all get a chance to enjoy JAKE ELLIS and THE ACTIVITY, too -- trades are out for both!

    You heard it here first, everyone - Nathan Edmondson confirms a sequel to his Iron Man miniseries!!!!

    Since we're on the topic of past stories, is there any particular Ultimate Tony moment that really stands out to you as an, for lack of a better word, inspiration? I'm personally a huge fan of both Ultimate Human and Armor Wars by Warren Ellis, and the back and forth between Playboy Tony and somber Tony that he was able to capture. Also his final moment in Ultimates 2.
    I like Ultimate Comics. - Read them with us!

    I also buy: Captain America, Avengers, FF, New Avengers, X-Factor, among others

    Nope, not confirming anything! Sorry to confuse.

    Hope you all enjoyed issue 2!

    Gina Carano seems to have enjoyed it.
