Would Tony Stark still be Iron Man...if he wasn't Tony Stark? Twenty years ago, in a college experiment gone bad, the young Stark's mind is transferred to the body of impoverished but brilliant fellow student, Victor von Doom! Blamed for the unsanctioned research, his memory wiped clean, Tony is deported and forced to face life as a disgraced Latverian commoner. Meanwhile, von Doom grows and flourishes in the wealth and privilege of being sole heir to tark Industries. Thus, in separate cauldrons on different sides of the world, both Iron Man and Dr. Doom are forged anew. But who are the men inside the armors...really?

    "Demon in an Armor" has a strong hook, but the approach taken by Michelinie and Layton is unimaginative and doesn't seem to use the characters we're familiar with as its starting place. Neither Von Doom nor Stark truly resemble their Marvel universe selves. While that's partly the point of "What If?" stories, the departure here is so far that it's hard to understand why Marvel went with this concept. A truly disappointing way to begin this year's batch of "What If?" titles. Read Full Review

    What If? Demon in an Armor is a decent story that shows what would happen if Tony Stark and Victor Von Doom switched minds and became the other.

    The story is initially set in the college days of both characters, who are roommates and don't get along at first. After their bond grows, Tony decides to help Doom with the latter's project as Doom will be rejected from college if the project fails, but discovers too late that Doom plans to switch their minds through said project. The switch is successful, with Stark becoming Doom and having his memories erased during the mind swap, and Doom becoming Stark, who retains all his memories. Doom pins the blame on the now amnesiac Stark, who is deported back to his "home" country of Latveria more
