Jed Mackay Continues His Black Cat Story With NEW 'Iron Cat' Limited Series This June

Marvel’s favourite feline heroine is enjoying a surge in popularity thanks to Jed MacKay’s acclaimed comic run that started back in 2019, and the beloved Felicia Hardy is about to endure even more success with Marvel announcing an all-new limited series for the character titled ‘Iron Cat’.

Iron Cat will see creative duo Jed MacKay (Moon Knight, Death of Doctor Strange) and Pere Pérez (Spider-Woman, Savage Spider-Man) team up yet again to bring Black Cat and Iron Man together to team up and investigate the mysterious re-emergence of the ‘Iron Cat’ armour, which first appeared back in Black Cat #11 in which the titular hero was forced to surrender the armour back to Iron Man.

After the sudden reappearance of the armour, you can imagine the pondering questions the duo have about why the Iron Cat armour is back in action and more importantly who exactly is wearing the suit.

Marvel.com had this to tease about the upcoming mini-series:

“Both Black Cat and Iron Man thought they had seen the last of the IRON CAT armour. And if Felicia is surprised to see the armour again, you can imagine how furious Tony is. There’s someone new in the Iron Cat armour and they have a plan that will put them in the crosshairs of all the heroes of the Marvel Universe. Both Iron Man and Black Cat’s secrets and mistakes are going to come back to haunt them, and it’s going to get ROUGH!”

Already-iconic Black Cat writer Jed MacKay teased us fans with what we can except to see from Iron Cat explaining:

"Curiosity may have killed the cat, but as always, satisfaction brings it back. It was with a heavy heart that we said goodbye to the ongoing BLACK CAT series last year, but now what would have been the next arc in that series lives on in its own right -- IRON CAT! The fan-favourite Iron Cat armour returns... but who's in it this time? It certainly isn't Felicia Hardy, as the Iron Cat comes gunning for her right off the bat. It's a rare pleasure to have a second chance to pick up a story that you thought lost, and I'm really excited for people to rejoin Pere and I on another Black Cat adventure!"

Returning artist Pere Pérez also had this to say about his return to the Black Cat character:

“I've been reading Jed's BLACK CAT series for a while now, and it's great to be a part of this storyline. I mean, there's heists, chases, fights, Iron Man... You can't go wrong with that. We'll also see how some parts of Felicia's past come back to haunt her. Felicia and Tony's worlds are pretty much opposite, so you can imagine how crazy things can get if you make those two work together. Can't wait to show everybody what we are cooking.”
