Issue Review
 
RikerDonegal
   October 3, 2016
Complete departure from formula. The Iron Man suit barely appears, as a consequence of the shocking events in the previous issue, and Tony (propped up by alcohol) enlists Rhodey and Ant Man to help him clear his name. The story moves rapidly, with a nice espionage feel and some action to end on. The combat training with Captain America may have been a bit silly but the tone elsewhere was grim, tense. 9/10

  Love to see Tony not having to use his armor to get out of trouble.

  This was sloppy. Cops let IM walk away? Nobody asks Stark for IM's identity? Cap trains Tony in a day? Just sloppy.

  And how has Bethany not figured out who Iron Man is yet?

  I'm to believe Tony Stark learned karate in one day?

  I agree the training by Captain America was goofy, but I appreciate the interaction with the police. So many times we see the Army or police attack a superpowered character with no chance of winning. I like that they went a surprising but still logical direction with it.

  I've been enjoying the hell out of these last couple of issues. Aside from the great plot and character moments, there are nice little jokes scattered around (Arbogast holding a "dismissal notice" with names on it like Michelinie and Romita a couple issues back, the guy in this issue asking for his "aunt's pen" in nonsense French at the hot dog stand). You can tell Michelinie and Romita were having fun doing these issues.

  This is fun stuff, although before reading this arc, I was hoping the alcoholism would be in play a bit more.

  Getting your employees to engage in criminal activity is fun.
