Who Are the Stark Seven?

Marvel Comics is gearing up the promotion for Kieron Gillen's "Secret Origin of Tony Stark" story arc in Iron Man with the release of this new teaser.

"You know the origin of Iron Man, but what mysteries surround the Secret Origin of Tony Stark? It’s the biggest story to rock the life of the man behind the suit, and this April, the blockbuster creative team of Kieron Gillen and Dale Eaglesham uncover one of the secrets surrounding Tony’s past in Iron Man #10! But who are the “Stark Seven” and what do they have to do with Iron Man?

You’ve never read an Iron Man story quite like this and no fan can miss out on some of the biggest revelations that will not only impact the life of the Armored Avenger, but the entire Marvel Universe! So what are you waiting for? Head on over to your local comic shop now and reserve a copy of Iron Man #10!"

From this teaser and comments from Gillen himself, this looks to be an Ocean's Eleven style story featuring Tony Stark's parents. The Stark in this teaser imagine is most likely Howard Stark. Might that make the bombshell Maria Stark? I don't know. That's certainly Dum-Dum Dugan as the muscle. Thunderbolt Ross is a likely candidate for the grunt, and could that be Jimmy Woo as the spy? I have no guesses on the others.

Clearly, the alien is the Brad Pitt of this group.
