Tony Stark has always been a man of many talents for whom surprise is a rare thing.

But the avenging philanthropic billionaire -- better known for the high-tech armor he wears as Iron Man -- is about to find himself felled by not one, but two, family secrets that have him questioning his place in the world and why the reality of his origin was kept from him.

The big reveal comes in the pages of "Iron Man" No. 17, out Wednesday in comic shops.

Writer Kieron Gillen brings the long-simmering story to its conclusion with Stark finding out that not only is he -- again, spoilers -- adopted, but that his parents, Howard and Maria, had a son -- imbued with alien technology -- who has been hidden away.
