Great issue. Really enjoyed the performance panels. Lame villains aside from whiplash. Finding all villains from the 60s and 70s have the same "voice." (Speech patterns/slang)

Solid quality.
The story, when we actually get to it, is basic: some villains commit a robbery while Tony is nearby.
But the earlier part of the issue reminds us of Iron Man's ongoing tech problems, and there are hints of someone behind it all.
The best part of the story, however, is the conversation with Beth. She's someone strong enough, opinionated enough to have an impact on Tony, and on the series.

8/10

  Why is it that the heroes struggle with one super villain, yet seems to kicka**until one mistake with multiple villains on the scene?

  It's the new and improved armor!

Stark fights a villain, then makes improvements to counter that villain. So these villains should be easier to beat now.

I agree with your point, it's bothered me in Spidey's book the most.
