    PopOptiq - Terrence Sage Jan 6, 2016

    Overall, Invincible Iron Man, which is the flagship Marvel title, has concluded its first arc with definite promises of change for several characters and that will almost likely include pushing Iron Man and Tony to their limits especially since seeds are being planted for Civil War II during the next arc!

    Iron Man's been a bit up and down in recent years, and it's good to see the series back on solid ground. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Jan 6, 2016

    Invincible Iron Man #5 is a really good superhero comic. This team is strong and they know how to weave an entertaining tale. Bendis' character work is fantastic and Marquez and Ponsor deliver on the visual side to create a total package that is worthy of being a top 10 book. It's been awhile since I was excited to read an Iron Man comic, but this team has changed that for me. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Matt Nord Jan 18, 2016

    Invincible Iron Man continues to reflect the best attributes of both of its creators, Brian Michael Bendis and David Marquez. The appearance of Mary Jane is a welcome addition to the cast and has already found a fitting place alongside Tony as he blasts his way through Madam Masque's mystical powered attacks.

    Invincible Iron Man #5 brings the first arc of this new ongoing to a fantastic conclusion with Tony's battle against Madame Masque and him teaming up with Victor Von Doom leading to some intense events. The creative team also justify Mary Jane Watson place within this narrative, with there being a lot to look forward to as we head into “The War Machines.” Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jan 9, 2016

    The story is alright, mostly. It's Bendis' use of characters that's really fun. He does a great job with the charming and witty Tony Stark, who can get serious when need be, whether he's trying to convince Masque to calm down or when he's offering Mary Jane a job. This comic definitely isn't just a placeholder book to keep Marvel's key movie star untouched. Bendis and Marquez are telling a simple, enjoyable Iron Man story. I like it. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Jan 7, 2016

    Despite being an entertaining one, the resolution to the immediate threat wasn't as effective to the larger narrative as it could have been. Still, it's a gorgeous book worth reading so there's that. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jan 7, 2016

    From a story standpoint, this issue offers a fairly underwhelming conclusion to Brian Bendis' first story arc. Read Full Review
