    Comicsverse - Jake Lee Oct 22, 2015

    It may seem confusing to some that Marvel--with their recent emphasis on "All-New All-Different" content--would continue blurring the line between their films and comics. But rest assured, True Believers, that in the hands of Bendis and Marquez the latest print iteration of the Armored Avenger is just as fresh as it is familiar! Read Full Review

    The second issue in the rip-roaring new start to Iron Man ramps up the action and lets us inside the new Marvel Universe ever so slightly to great results. Bendis understands Tony to the point it feels right at home alongside Matt Fraction's extensive run on the character already. Only time will tell whereInvincible Iron Man will go and so far Tony will only soar higher. Read Full Review

    Bottom Line: Bendis has stepped his game up from one issue to the next. Tone setting, pacing, action" everything seems to have been handled better than before. Also, this is some of the best David Marquez artwork I've ever seen. No joke. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Oct 22, 2015

    Bendis and Marquez are a great team and I thoroughly enjoyed Invincible Iron Man #2. With these first two issues, this series already feels like a flagship or anchor book, a top flight piece of the Marvel Universe that is a top 10 worthy comic. This is a fun superhero book with entertaining dialogue and marvelous art and I can't wait for issue #3. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Oct 23, 2015

    I've rarely been a regular consumer of Iron Man titles, but I've dipped throughout the character's history. With stunning visuals from Marquez, Ponsor and Cowles and Bendis' intriguing direction, "Invincible Iron Man" #2 has me rethinking that strategy. Even better, this second issue is just as approachable as the first. Even without the recap page, Bendis and crew give readers enough information to absorb and comfortably move forward, just in time for this adventure to really blast off. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 21, 2015

    Invincible Iron Man's first issue was slightly disappointing, which is why it's good to see the new series quickly building steam in its second chapter. While this issue focuses a little too much on dialogue, it builds a clear sense of tension and explores the relationships between Tony, Doom and Madame Masque well. And Marquez's art shines regardless of location or characters. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Oct 21, 2015

    The series is off to a promising start and while it's a bit slower-paced and it feels like the book is holding too much information back from the reader, overall, it's a really fun read and a series I'm fully invested in already. Marquez and Ponsor do some phenomenal work on the book as well. This is a solid, fun issue and I highly recommend it. Read Full Review

    Invincible Iron Man #2 was a rather intriguing entry in the newly launched series, with the interaction between Tony and Doom being mesmerizing. That said this did leave very little room for anything else, and although that isn't necessarily bad, it did prevent this from becoming something extraordinary. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Oct 22, 2015

    In the end, the problems with the issue are outweighed by the positive qualities. The parts that are enjoyable are really, really enjoyable. It's still a fun, exciting, enjoyable issue that is worth your coin, though I sincerely hope that the next few issues see some more incident occur in order to pick up the pace. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Jarrod Jones Oct 12, 2015

    And with its prohibitive four-dollar price tag, it's a wonder if Marvel is serious about enticing an entirely new generation of fans, or if they're just finding all-new, all-different ways of diminishing the expectations of their long-time readers. One thing's for sure: it's going to take a lot more than a tune-up to make this book matter. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Ron Watson Oct 26, 2015

    In any form of art, the best advice is to “show, don't tell.” Unfortunately, that's not the case here. While there is still a great deal to go before we can truly know what to expect in this story arc, this chapter felt stale. This is due to the over-focus on dialogue. Toward the end, we get a little steam building though. Bendis is starting to work toward something that could be quite exciting. While this isn't the strongest issue, there is an odd character pairing with similar goals that may make for an exciting finish. Or it could just end with Bendis writing his own take on a character that doesn't jive with what readers have come to expect from decades of characterization. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Oct 21, 2015

    Invincible Iron Man seems to be biding time until Secret Wars to end so that it can really start revving up the plot. But if that's the case, maybe it wasn't the right time to reveal your new flagship title. I can't believe the plot is moving this slowly only two issues in, but at least the book is nice to look at. Bendis is not utilizing Marquez to the fullest extent, but they have a history, so I'm sure that there will be some big moments coming. Unfortunately, you won't find them here, and there's no reason to check in on an issue that can be summarized in half a sentence on the next recap page. Read Full Review

    There is a lot of story in this book considering there is only 19 pages of content. The dialogue is great. Brian Michael Bendis really knows how to write for Iron Man. It still feels like Robert Downey Jr is playing the character in the comic book. There is a really great appearance from Victor Von Doom. He may or may not be a good guy now, who knows? There isn't exactly a lot of action in this series yet. It almost feels like a detective story. I dig it.

    I'm liking this new Tony. He's charming, charismatic and a slight douche. And I'm liking how they are straight up with the connection with Madame Masque. I can't wait to see where this is going! I'm loving Bendis' storytelling. It's on point and not sluggish and I'm enjoying the Art of Marquez and the colors of Ponsor. Can't wait for issue #3.

    The Madam Masque stuff is great. Doom out of the mask is a snooze.
