Tony Stark is an asshole ... well .. more of an asshole. Spinning out of Marvel Comics next event, AXIS Iron Man will become the Superior Iron Man in hopes to make the world a better place. But is he really doing so?

“Tony Stark’s idea of Utopia isn’t everyone’s idea of perfection,” says writer Tom Taylor in an interview with “Even a blind man can see the cracks in Tony’s Brave New World.”

With Iron Man’s new goals comes the Tony Stark we all loved to hate. He has become the douchey philanthropist playboy from his ‘humble’ beginnings.

“This is a Tony we haven’t seen since before that fateful heart injury that turned him into one of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes,” says Senior Editor Mark Paniccia. “The smug, over-confident quintessential capitalist is back … and readers are going to get a real kick out of it. Even the most loyal IRON MAN fans will find this a guilty pleasure.”

So what’s the Superior Iron Man really about? Well, according to Marvel Comics Tony has moved to San Francisco to give Extremis 3.0 to the masses. This will allow people to obtain beauty, power, immortality -- to name a few -- but at a price. And the only one who can stop him is Matt Murdock, better known as Daredevil who has made San Francisco his new home as well.

And with the announcement of Robert Downey Jr. being cast to co-star in ‘Captain America 3’ to jumpstart the Civil War storyline, it seems logical that Marvel make Iron Man the villain.
