View Full Version : Would you like Norman Osbourn as a Iron Man villian?
01-22-2009, 10:06 AM
For those who have not read Dark Avengers, be aware this poll reflects events that take place during issue #1 of Dark Avengers.
Now, with that said, with the recent actions of Osbourn against Stark, including recruiting Ghost to unlock Starks armor vault and taking one of Starks armors and calling himself Iron Patroit.
As well as branding Stark, Worlds most wanted for the info he has regarding the true identities of all the Super Heros. Do these actions warrant Osbourn to become a enemy of Stark on a permenent basis?
Please post what you think.

Right now Norman is an enemy to all Heroes. But should remain eternal to Spiderman. Because for all Normans skills and status. He cant beat some nerd who can barely hold a 9-5 job.

Of all Osborn's many appearances across the Marvel line throughout Dark Reign, I'd say his two best interpretations have been in Joe Kelly's "American Son" arc over in Amazing Spider-Man, and in Matt Fraction's "World's Most Wanted" in Invincible Iron Man. Fraction does such a great job making Osborn a repulsive slimeball, he's become a more compelling antagonist for Tony Stark than most ACTUAL Iron Man villains.

Bullseye even said it himself. Norman is going to lose his **** eventually.
And he'll lose everything when Steve comes back because I will be damned if he comes back and allows this **** to go on.

Norman as an IM villain? Nah.
I always though Dr. Doom would've made a better Iron Man villain.

^I've heard that idea as well. But to me, Doom as an Iron Man villain just smacks of being too obvious. As for Osborn, nah keep him with Spidey. Fraction should take on some actual Iron Man villains and revamp them instead. They're due for it.

I agree Kedrell, while in the beginning having Osborn be a more active villain for Stark was great and it is nice to see how much a slimball he is and hope Stark takes him down. Someone needs to delve into Iron Man's rogues gallery and revamp many of them, there are many that have great potential, but lack the good writing to bring them to the fore front as a major Marvel villain.
Typically when people do think of Iron Man and his villains, the first and really only one they think of is Mandarin, which is sad with great villains like Madam Masque, Crimson Dynamo, Spymaster, Ghost etc.
hopefully as you said, Fraction should dig into shellheads villains and work making them more a threat not just to Iron Man but other hero's. He has done a good job with Madam Masque and Controller, so who knows'

I hope Norman dons his Iron Patriot armor again, modifying it since he's a criminal now
