New Iron Cat Revealed by Marvel, With Shocking Secret Identity

Warning! Spoilers for Iron Cat #1 by Marvel Comics

Marvel’s Iron Cat’s secret identity has been revealed, as the person behind the armor has a shocking connection to Black Cat. In Iron Cat #1 by Marvel Comics, Felicia Hardy faces off against a woman who has turned her Iron Man-like armor into her own weapon. However, when she takes off her mask, it’s revealed to be Tamara Blake, Black Cat’s ex-girlfriend and former training partner, who wants revenge for the death of Black Fox.

Felicia Hardy is taking on the Iron Cat in a new series from Marvel Comics. The armored character originally appeared during her self-titled series as Black Cat used Tony Stark’s technology to build a remote set of armor she could control. However, after the armor was taken out of commission, it ended up in the hands of someone looking to get revenge on Marvel’s greatest thief, as it’s been reworked to be a wearable Iron Man armor. So now, Hardy and Tony Stark are taking on their creation, who immediately proves to be a formidable opponent.

In Iron Cat #1 by Jed MacKay, Pere Perez, Frank D’Armata, and VC’s Ariana Maher from Marvel Comics, Iron Man confronts Black Cat as he believes she is responsible for the return of Iron Cat. However, after telling Tony she has no idea how the suit has returned, she’s attacked by the armor she created, as someone has made it wearable. When Iron Cat knocks her down, she removes her mask, and her secret identity is revealed to be Tamara Blake, Felica Hardy’s former friend, and ex-girlfriend who also trained under the Black Fox.

Yes, Black Cat is responsible for the death of Black Fox, but she killed him only after finding out her former mentor betrayed her. Tamara Blake likely doesn’t know the truth but is desperate to gain avenge him. Suiting up as Iron Cat and using the armor that Felicia Hardy created is undoubtedly one way to get her attention.

The shocking reveal that Iron Cat is Tamara Blake and wants revenge for Black Fox’s death sets up what should be a fun miniseries. Revealing Blake’s secret identity in the first issue shows that her mission to take down Felica Hardy is hugely personal. Now, Black Cat will need Tony Stark’s help in taking down her ex-girlfriend as she’ll soon suit up in her own armor to do so. Readers can see Iron Cat take on Black Cat in Iron Cat #1 from Marvel Comics, which is in comic book stores now.
