    This issue also offers up another memorable set of pencils from Salvador Larroca. I'll never be happy with the colors at this point, but for the most part the engaging action sequences and raw emotion are enough to make up for it. Curiously, though, Larroca doesn't render War Machine in his proper armor. At first I thought Matt Fraction was guilty of ignoring Rhodey's Iron Man 2.0 transformation, but this issue sees him utilize those new powers to full effect. Why Larroca and other artists have reverted to the bulky, movie-inspired armor is a mystery. Read Full Review

    The arc Fraction and Larroca did called “World's Most Wanted” took Tony's mind away from him in a slow burn, but in “Demon” that's all Tony's got. Sometimes having a particularly brilliant mind is a hundred times better than the Iron Man suit. I'm really looking forward to the next stage of the story! Read Full Review

    Okay, first the bad. I am so pissed that Melter appears to have devolved into your common, dime a dozen villain. I always felt he was better than that. So yeah, that annoyed me. Going into this issue, I didn't expect Rhodey to die, because he's all over several other books... I mean he's in AvX, he's in Secret Avengers, etc. But yep, I TOTALLY brought his death when I read this one! That's some good writing from Fraction, because like I said, I was sure Rhodey wasn't going to die, but Fraction got me here... He tricked me but good! Overall? As usual, this was a strong, above average read. Par for the course with this series. Read Full Review

    The “Demon” is that older, deeper insecurity that Tony feels. Something that drives him to greatness, by driving him to lose control. For Matt Fraction to have reframed the character in this way, he's clearly tilled the fertile soil of myth himself. There'll come a time, soon enough, when critics will be saying, “It's a good Iron Man story, but it's no ‘Demon'”. Read Full Review
