Non-stop action. resolves the story arc in fine style with the surprise inclusion of a character from a while back. 9/10

Issue Synopsis
A freed Iron Man battles the Mad Thinker and quickly dispatches him. Persuaded by the Black Lama, Yellow Claw arrives to continue his battle with Iron Man. Eventually Iron Man gains the upper hand and Yellow Claw flees just as Firebrand arrives, also to fight Iron Man. A tired Iron Man is defeated by Firebrand, whom Black Lama then declares the victor of the Golden Globe. The Globe is a trick and teleports Firebrand back to the Black Lama's world. Comic to, Iron Man is barely able to follow them through the portal.

  No wonder Firebrand doesn't have a girlfriend. He gets off on smacking men of iron around. NTTAWWT...

  Jeez, all this for a lousy golden globe. You figure the super-villains would hold out for an Oscar. *rimshot*
Where the heck did Yellow Claw's headgear come from? It just suddenly appears in one panel when the panel before he wasn't wearing it.
Given the way this arc has been going, it only makes sense that the lamest baddie wins the contest. Though why any of these guys thought that they were actually going to gain great power as a reward for being evil from a random guy, I really don't understand.

  Actually, I liked the idea of a real wild card like Firebrand coming in and beating a tired Iron Man for the prize. Of course, what's he going to do with it?

I had a feeling there was a more self-serving reason Black Lama was doing this. Now this "war" is making a little more sense. Well, a little bit. But what a mystic-seeming baddie like him is doing in a Iron Man mag is still beyond me. Mystic stuff doesn't work in his mag (although to be fair, nothing else works either).

3 stars. Not looking forward to the "trip to the past" diversion though.
