    INFAMOUS IRON MAN #5 gives us wonderful dialogue from the many strong characters that have been in this series. Bendis' plot that finds Victor playing the protagonist continues to work, and the artwork from Alex Maleev and Matt Hollingsworth is on point once again. Read Full Review

    Doctor Doom didn't expect his reformed stint as Iron Man to be easy, however I'm willing to bet Doom didn't see his mother coming back to haunt him as one of those obstacles. What does Cynthia want, and how is it tied to Reed Richards and his eternal feud with Victor von Doom? Infamous Iron Man #5 offers no answers, only plenty of questions. Worth a look.

    Basically, all the right pieces are in place by now, but they aren't being arranged as quickly and efficiently as they need to be. Read Full Review

    The story is still in a very nascent stage, but it's maturing rapidly and in a way that would make any mother proud. Read Full Review

    Infamous Iron Man is a slow burn of a series, but Bendis' portrayal of a reformed and badass Doctor Doom makes it totally worth all the waiting. This issue is a particularly strong showing of the new Doom. Read Full Review

    Some interesting plot developments and good artwork at the expense of character consistency. Read Full Review

    While the color work does earn this book some extra points, what deserves the most credit in this issue is the ending. Now, while the ending isn't a cliffhanger per se, it is a bit of a jaw-dropper. Some of you may have already put together the big reveal at the end, but for those of you who haven't, it's a nice a surprise. And while I'm not about to spoil it here, I will say that the ending gives me hope for the future of the series. I have a feeling that things are about to get a whole lot worse for Victor.
