EXCLUSIVE: Doom meets Tony Stark: Sorcerer Supreme in Infamous Iron Man #9

We’ve talked about the role of superheroics and super-science in Infamous Iron Man, but Victor von Doom is a sorcerer as well. What can you tell us about the role of the supernatural in the book moving forward?

Bendis: What I’m most excited about is this mixture of technology and mysticism. I’ve touched upon it a few times in the past. One of the things people seemed to really enjoy was the idea of Tony Stark Sorcerer Supreme from the X-Men Annuals. I get a lot of letters about him.

I feel there’s a version of Tony Stark that eventually realizes that the next level he needs to get to with his technology is a spiritual study of self. Victor has done that, but he did it in a corrupt way, using black magic. What Tony would need to do though is a more pure thing that would take a great long time; maybe longer than he has left.

I like writing about characters who are using both of these things to make a more signature power set, or a more signature manifestation of their powers.

When we first thought about Infamous Iron Man I told Alex that half of the people will be like, “This is the book I didn’t know that I always wanted.” Because it’s not a book anyone ever said they wanted. Then there will be another group that’s like, “Why are you doing this? Where is Tony Stark?” We’re always going to have to deal with that.
