Steampunk Iron Man Art Includes A Bittersweet Backstory

s2

This beautiful steampunk version of Iron Man is the work of artist Anthony Jones. He posted this backstory for his art on his tumblr:

After donating his heart to save his only son Jarvis, Jarvis devoted his life to engineering to bring his father back to life. Picking up his father’s work, he found an alternative power source that could bring him back. Preserving his body in a deep freeze incubator, Jarvis spent 10 years of his young adult life to engineer a mechanized suit using the power of steam to breathe life to his father.

Introducing Gentlemen Stark.

The story makes the image even more striking, and makes us wish Jones would illustrate the entire saga.
