James Rhodes', a.k.a War Machine, latest enemy is something he has never faced before. What is he to do when he can't shoot or blow up his enemy, let alone even see him? War Machine needs to take the next step and become Iron Man 2.0, or he may not make it out of this one alive. Matt Fraction's Invincible Iron Man #501 is also out this week. A familiar threat demands salvation through Stark's miracle technology, and now that Tony has tackled unlimited energy for the world, he is setting out to remake Asgard! February

IDW's True Blood: Tainted Love #1 hits shelves this week by writers Alan Ball, David Tischman, and Mariah Huehnew and artisit David Messina. The Tru Blood supply has been contaminated, and the Southern Vampire population is going crazy. Sookie's world is out of control. This trouble isn't going to help the tension between the humans and vampires, but who is behind the bad 'Blood? For those looking to catch up, True Blood HC Vol. 01 is already out!

After the shocking conclusion of the last issue, Fantastic Four #588, epilogue to Three, spends a month with the FF, extended family, heroes, and villains reacting to and mourning the death of the Human Torch. Spider-Man also guest starts in a back-up story. This is the final issue before the launch of the all new FF (Future Foundation) #1.

The second printing of Age of X: Alpha #1 hits shelves this week and just in time! X-Men Legacy #245 continues the story of this dystopian world where the X-Men never existed and only a few mutants remain, but who are they? New Mutants #22 follows these last surviving mutants trying to stay alive in their stronghold, but when a conspiracy threatens them from the inside, all hope for them may be lost. Fans should also keep an eye out this week for Astonishing X-Men #36, X-Men #8, and Uncanny X-Men #533.
