Pepper Potts moved on from Tony Stark. She's getting her life together, finding her place in the world.
Unfortunately, that's exactly when Tony Stark decides it's time for a full-tilt, full-blown meltdown. And if Pepper can't suit up and save the day, Tony is toast.

    2020 Rescue #1 is a fantastic demonstration of the kind of story potential that can happen in superhero comics when female characters aren't fridged or sidelined and have agency and complex emotions. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 4, 2020

    Schwartz and Burrows are off to a promising start with a whole new angle on the Iron Man concept in an issue that exhibits a very together heroine who exhibits all of the strength, power, and poise of an Avenger. The art pulls together a fascinating script with dynamic action and nuanced portrayal of drama. The story itself may be cast in a mold that goes back to the dawn of the original Iron Man character, but Schwartz and company make it feel fresh. Read Full Review

    While there's no indication of how Iron Man 2020 will shake out, this miniseries is making the ride worthwhile. Read Full Review

    The issue itself was visually popping with the extensive use of bold colors against the hard outlines. It made for a very eye-catching experience that brought some of the action out of the pages. The dialog and story overall were pretty good except that it felt that it was a little long in places, especially with Tony's mom. However, the action did help cut into that. All in all, a great pickup for fans of Pepper and Iron Man. Looking forward to seeing issue 2 in a few weeks and the continuation of the Iron Man 2020 storyline. Read Full Review

    Rescue 2020 is a nice return to Pepper Pott's narrative, but the underwhelming visuals prevents it from being a must-buy. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Nico Sprezzatura Mar 4, 2020

    Im less hot on the art here, drawn primarily by Jacen Burrows and colored by Pete Pantazis. Ive come across Burrowss work in the past and liked it, but Im not a huge fan of how it looks with Pantaziss colors. Burrowss thick lines combined with Pantaziss heavy, blotchy colors and shading give an overall effect of muddiness, which doesnt suit the character especially well. Flatter, cleaner coloring might have complimented Burrowss linework better. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 3, 2020

    This is a good look at Pepper Potts and a solid argument we need to see more of her. Unfortunately, this issue suffers from the sins of the past and serves as a reminder of them as Potts -- and by extension, these creators -- try to close the door on clunky Tony Stark history. Ironically, in trying to show Potts still believes in Tony Stark, I'd argue it makes me less of a believer in him and much more a believer in Potts. Give her the armor -- after the strong points made about her personality, I'd prefer her in it! Read Full Review
