When the book is focused on the attempted assassination attempts on Tony Stark the book is quite engaging, but when the material turns its attention to the various supporting characters who litter this series I must confess I find it quite difficult to get overly invested in the material. Most of this stems from the fact that I simply don't care much for this book's one note supporting cast, but there's also a very real problem in that the plots the supporting players bring to the book have been pretty much covered before, and it's rather disappointing to see the writers returning to a well that has already been drained dry. I mean did this book real have to turn Happy into a raging alcoholic, and the melodramatics of Pepper's lost baby are so overblown that it's difficult to really embrace what could've been a pretty solid bit of character development. The book does close with a pretty exciting cliffhanger though, that leaves me hopeful. Read Full Review
