I just care that it,s in SOME continuity, rather than some lame elseworlds story.


I think I'll check it out Iron Man has been pretty good lately.


Meh.It only used to take 1 issue to beat him.


[quote@professorhulk There only doing this becouse of the movie yknow. I dnt think im gonna get this.[/quote] If you are talking to me I know it is for the movie. I am just not sure what continuity it is in. In the comics Anton Vanko was the first Crimson Dynamo and now is dead so it couldn't really be in this continuity. But in the movies Mickey Rourke's character is named Ivan Vanko, not Anton, so I am confused as to how this book would fit into the movie continuity. If anybody has any explanation please help me out.


There only doing this becouse of the movie yknow. I dnt think im gonna get this.


When it says in-continuity, in-continuity to what? The comics or the movies?
