    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 4, 2017

    The comic has given a new spin on one of Marvel Comics' oldest characters. Hopefully we won't see that work go to waste (or see him marginalized as Magneto often has during his less villainous turns). I don't know what's in store for Doom going forward, but this comic shows there's plenty of potential for the character given the right direction and creative team. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Alexander Jones Oct 2, 2017

    "Infamous Iron Man" #12 offers a smooth finish to a series-wide storyline and finally delivers on the promise of the strong idea at the core of the book. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Sep 27, 2017

    A weak script and confusing plot makes this the weakest issue in an otherwise stellar series. Maleev and Hollingsworth still deliver, making it impossible to call this issue a total loss. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 28, 2017

    This issue marks the end of Victor Von Doom's latest solo series, if not necessarily the end of his tenure as Iron Man. It's a bittersweet experience at best. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Sep 30, 2017

    The otherwise phenomenal Infamous Iron Man ends with a bit of a whimper, because it feels like Bendis switched out whatever stories he actually planned for a quick fake-out resolution. Read Full Review

    Bendis fails badly in the lacklustre #12 issue that has been, until now, a deeply fascinating title. The story that gained momentum over the first near-dozen issues crumbles at the end, with a rip-off quick ending that wraps up the necessary plot lines in a cheap and unsatisfying "Mephisto did it all!" Ending. The breaking of the 4th wall by Mephisto was beyond belief dumb. An interesting series that shits the bed at the end.

    Hmm this issue was bit bizarre and definitely not the epic conclusion I was expecting to this awesome series. But it have some decent moments here and there and I did love seeing Doom and Strange working together. I'm definitely going to miss the great artwork by Alex Maleev it was always consistent and sooo unique. It's a shame that this was only 12 issues because it's easily among Marvel's best comics right now. All in all this was a cool little experiment and Victor's journey to redemption was one heck of a ride!

    Definitely not the wild ending I was expecting or anywhere near an ending worth all the issues and build up. To say this issue fell flat is an understatement. The only reason I am still giving it a decent grade is the art. That monologue by Mephisto was just cringey at some points and while the ending does leave an interesting revelation it just does not have the impact I think it was intending. Overall, I am pretty disappointed with this series as all the good build left me with this.

    Overall, I was pretty disappointed in how Bendis chose to end this series. We really get no resolution with Dr. Doom's motives behind his turn to hero, and the reveal of Mephisto being the actual villain of the entire run, was just odd. It came out of left field, and Bendis used the first 3 pages of the issue to have Mephisto break the 4th wall, turn towards the audience, and describe through long exposition why he wanted to mess with Doom. I really enjoyed issues 1-10. But with the final 2, I can't say I'd even pick up the full trade for this.
