IRON CAT returns in a new limited series from Jed MacKay and Pere Pérez


Over her acclaimed and fan-favorite Black cat run, writer Jed MacKay had the titular feline donning his own Iron Man-style armor dubbed Iron Cat. Designed by the artist CF Villa the suit debuted in Black cat #11 and quickly stole the hearts of fans. While Felicia may have returned the armor to Tony Stark, it looks like this won’t be the last we’ve seen of Iron Cat as today at ComicsPRO the publisher announced a new issue #5 iron cat limited series with MacKay returning as writer and joined by artist Father Perez. No additional members of the creative team were mentioned in the official press release.

Since it’s not Felicia in the armor, the big mystery is who is the new Iron Cat? As MacKay teased in the official press release:

“Curiosity may have killed the cat, but as always, satisfaction brings it back. It was with heavy hearts that we said goodbye to the ongoing BLACK CAT series last year, but now what would have been the next arc of that series continues in its own right – IRON CAT! Fan-favorite Iron Cat armor returns…but who’s in it this time? It’s definitely not Felicia Hardy, because the Iron Cat picks her up right off the bat. It’s a rare treat to get a second chance to pick up a story you thought was lost, and I’m so glad people are joining Father and I on another Black Cat adventure!”

Pérez, meanwhile, expressed excitement about working on the limited series.

“I’ve been reading Jed’s BLACK CAT series for a while now, and it’s been great to be a part of that story. I mean, there’s heists, chases, fights, Iron Man… You can’t tell yourself. fooling around with that. We’ll also see how parts of Felicia’s past come back to haunt her. Felicia and Tony’s worlds are pretty much opposites, so you can imagine how crazy things can get if you make them work together. J can’t wait to show everyone what we cook.

The first issue will feature a main cover by Pérez as well as variants by skin and Ron Lim and an “action figure variant” by John Tyler Christophe. Look for Iron Cat #1 to arrive in June.
