Besides the new Thor relaunch, Marvel had a few other new titles to announce at their Next Big Thing panel during New York Comic Con. The first title was teased earlier this week by writer Dan Slott:

Iron Man 2020 aka. Arno Stark, was first introduced in 1984’s Machine Man #2 and hailed from Earth-8410, though the current incarnation of Arno Stark was introduced in 2013’s Iron Man #12. At the Next Big Thing panel, it was announced that Slott’s Tony Stark: Iron Man title will be ending this December issue #19, but fear not Iron Man fans, Iron Man 2020 #1 will launch in January 2020.

In the new titles Tony Stark’s brother Arno will again be Iron Man 2020, and will be going up against artificial intelligence and a Robot Rebellion fighting for robot rights. Assisting Arno will be some familiar friends: War Machine, Rescue, and Ironheart. On the rebellion’s side are also some familiar faces including: Machine Man aka. Aaron Stack, Jocasta, Vision, Albert (the robotic Wolverine), Elsie-Dee, Machinesmith, Nick Fury LMDs, Death’s Head, the Mad Thinker and his Awesome Android, Quasimodo, H.E.R.B.I.E., the Dreadnaughts, Brynocki, Alkhema, and M-11.

Another title that will be ending this year with a relaunch next year will be Guardians of the Galaxy. The most recent incarnation by writer Donny Cates, just launched this past January and will be ending with issue #12. Enter January 2020’s Guardians of the Galaxy, this time written by Al Ewing with art by Juann Cabal. Here is how Marvel describes the new series:

Once, the Guardians of the Galaxy were a team of misfits. Now they’re a family, and they’ve earned their peace. But the universe is not a peaceful place — and it’s only getting worse. The Great Empires are in turmoil. The rule of law is dead. And amidst the chaos, the Gods of Olympus have returned — harbingers of a new age of war, reborn to burn their mark on the stars themselves. Someone has to guard the galaxy — but who will accept the mission? And will they survive it?

Finally, a prequel follow-up to 1999’s Earth X series: Marvels X. Earth X took place in dystopian future where all ordinary humans gained superpowers. Here is how Marvel describes this upcoming limited series:

MARVELS X will follow David, the last human being on Earth who lives in a world of monsters that would love to devour him. While these creatures see him only as prey, they’re his former neighbors. David has one hope: to get to New York, where Captain America and the rest of the heroes are.

Marvels X will be written by Alex Ross and Jim Krueger are teaming up with art by Velibor Stanojevic. The title will also launch in January 2020.
