Issue Review
 
RikerDonegal
   October 26, 2016
Great balance of comedy and drama, of superhero action and quiet human drama.
Action: We start with a frenzied battle, as 12 villains attack Iron Man at once. 12 rubbish villains, it must be said. And our hero takes them apart one-by-one. Very satisfying and amusing. The main villain of the story arc, however, escapes. Gosh, I wonder will we ever see him again?
Drama: Tony’s life is falling apart and he is drinking way too much, too often. There is one weak scene with a little girl, but the rest is great (particularly scenes with Bethany Cabe and Jarvis).
9/10

  It was very therapeutic to see Iron Man being able to handle all those second-rate villains with such ease. Back! Back in the C-list villain bin where you belong!

  Update: It actually sez in a later issue's lettercol that they printed the wrong "note" from Jarvis. I take it back then: Jarvis..you're a big toddler!

  The first half was just a parade of D list villains and ridiculous iron suit abilities. But the second half was great.

  It's artist Dave Cockrum's resignation letter. This is one of Comicdom's best secrets. It helped lead to changes that have the writers the ability to develop their own stories. Falcon's southern "slave speak" as my friend puts it is another way of dissenting against the head honcho's.

  Surprised he didn't offer Jarvis a farewell drink.
