Iron Man Cover Variant by Devilpig Iron Man Cover Variant by Devilpig
So Marvel's doing this event thing where every cover no matter what the title will have an Elseworlds style Iron Man cover. Iron Man as a Medieval Knight, Iron Man if Tesla invented him, etc. Mine was what if Iron Man was created in the 50's. So how could I not give homage to the classic 50's Sci-Fi staple BIG HEADED ALIEN INVADERS!!!

And it made sense to have his armor without any red or yellow to reference to 60's original armor.

I also feel like it needs an 'old cover' treatment with logos and stuff, but I'm too lazy to do it right now.

Download to see it without any distortion.

Soundtrack- Jimi Hendrix "Up from the Skies"

He might have already linked you to this but, Old cover treatment :P [link]

Wonderful cover btw! Will the interior of the comic have a retro look/story too? Or is it just a cover thing?

He did and the book itself is an X-Men book. This cover is part of a promotion Marvel is doing that has Iron Man alternative covers on all the main Marvel books.

That's sorta confusing to have an Iron Man cover for an X-men book in my opinion. XD I'll keep my eye out for it when I finally get to a comic shop again.

I don't know if you intended this, but Iron Man there kind of reminds me of Gort from The Day The Earth Stood Still. The 1951 version, not the remake.

The cover looks very schway wither way.
