Fans of comic books know how insane storylines can be sometimes. Some of the biggest storylines have lasted well over 20 years. One specific storyline involving an Avenger dropped quite a shocker. As expected, this will be filled with spoilers.

A Father’s Betrayal

In 2012, it was announced that Tony Stark was adopted as a kid. Aside from that, he learned that he has a half-brother named Arno. Howard and Maria Stark hiding this secret left him in a state of confusion. For years, he tried to find out the truth. In 2016, he discovered his real mother was named Amanda Armstrong, who was a touring pop star before joining SHIELD.

In Invincible Iron Man #600, Tony finds out the truth about his father. He discovers that his name is Jude and that he worked as a double agent for Hydra. Amanda was forced to kill him when she discovered his treacherous ways. This was done to prevent Tony from possibly joining Hydra.

A Surprise Return

Tony already knew his father was dead. The way he died, however, was a big shock. During Civil War II, he was originally told that Jude died as a SHIELD agent.

In the same issue, Jude somehow managed to escape death to continue his Hydra crusade. While Mary Jane Watson tried to take him out with a shot to the shoulder, Jude decided to take everyone on with a plethora of agents. Luckily, Iron Man shows up to save the day.

End Of An Era

Jude’s reveal in Invincible Iron Man #600 was important for another reason. This issue marked the official end of Brian Michael Bendis’ 20-year run with Marvel Comics. Fortunately, writer Dan Slott will continue the adventures with Tony Stark: Iron Man, which debuts on June 20.

Will Slott make Jude a more prominent villain in his run? At this point, only he knows the answer.
