WHAT IF? IRON MAN: DEMON IN AN ARMOR 

Written by David Michelinie and Bob Layton

Back-up story by Rick Remender and Shawn Moll.

Would Tony Stark still be Iron Man...if he wasn't Tony Stark? Twenty years ago, in a college experiment gone bad, the young Stark's mind is transferred to the body of impoverished but brilliant fellow student, Victor von Doom! Blamed for the unsanctioned research, his memory wiped clean, Tony is deported and forced to face life as a disgraced Latverian commoner. Meanwhile, von Doom grows and flourishes in the wealth and privilege of being sole heir to tark Industries. Thus, in separate cauldrons on different sides of the world, both Iron Man and Dr. Doom are forged anew. But who are the men inside the armors...really? Find out in "What If Tony Stark Had Become Dr. Doom?" Plus, What If: The Venom Symbiote Possessed Deadpool -- Part 4!
40 pages, $3.99.
