Issue Notes
 

Why Essential Notes

This issue and the rest of the "Demon in a Bottle" arc are marked essential, as this run of events is formative in the development of Tony Stark.



Placement Notes

This is placed before Avengers (v1) #186 because of Iron Man's being accused of murder in this issue likely explains his absence in Avengers (v1) #186.

Issue Review

Wow! Did not see that ending coming. Great cliffhanger.

Wow. This is a pretty solid issue all the way until the end when it takes a shocking turn, and moves up a notch.
First third is action-driven, picking up from previous issue with a better than average battle where new character Bethany Cabe impresses.
Middle section is character-driven with unsubtle but effective story arcs in progress.
Final third starts a new a-story, which is really the next chapter in an ongoing saga. And it is genuinely shocking.

9/10

  Holy Shiite, I did not expect that!

This chickie is getting annoying with her constant questioning of "who's protecting Tony" bullcrap.

  Wow, the gist of the ending was predictable, but I did not expect it to be so sudden and intense.

  Did Tony admit to not being able to perform in bed on page 8? Gotta lay off that booze Tony!
