Issue Review
 
RikerDonegal
   December 3, 2015
Although this is just another revenge tale it works much better than most because the series took time, and several issues, to lay the groundwork and establish the character of the man out for revenge. And it means we are invested in him, more than when some random villain shows up on page 1 of a comic and starts battling the hero.
Even with the fight going on, we are shown glimpses of other ongoing arcs, both story-arcs and character arcs.
And the battle is more exciting than many because IM is in a weakened state.
6/10

  1. The Guardsman looks like he's wearing bikini bottoms and a halter top.
2. Power shortage and heart issues... I hope we aren't headed back there.
3. The last panel was pretty good.

  If I didn't know better, I would swear this current run of Iron Man was published in 1971.

  Am I the only one that thinks O'Brians confusion is a mediocre way to end the battle?

  Iron Man's tumble down the stairs made my heart sad, even if it was only one panel.
