    If you were like myself – hesitant to get to know a brand new Iron Man – I recommend giving this book a chance. I know Bendis has it in him to tell strong stories, and when it's clear he's inspired, it's very easy to put your faith (aka $3.99) in him and blast off into the unknown. Read Full Review

    Invincible Iron Man #2 is a great follow up to a stellar first issue. Editorial didn't mess around when they put this team of A-list creators together and the results reflect that. I can't wait to see more adventure with Riri and her co-pilot, may their banter stay lightning fast far into the future. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Dec 23, 2016

    This series could be a slow burn that focuses on Riri's rise into heroism, but we quite like the idea of it. If Bendis can keep up with the emotional beats and not-over-done-humour then we have no reason not to return to this series. Read Full Review

    The series has pathos to balance out its humor and superhero spectacle. It also has a strong artist in Stefano Caselli. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - William Evans Dec 23, 2016

    Invincible Iron Man has a few flaws in its armor, but the book still has a good start with a promising future. Riri is what a hero looks like in today's comic book and I look forward to seeing what she does next. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Dec 21, 2016

    Invincible Iron Man #2 begins to build a foundation for what's to come. A steady progression that is complimented by engaging moments that allow us to get to know Riri better. If you didn't know about her before, you're getting to know just as much as anyone else who is coming to understand what makes her tick. Read Full Review

    To any Iron Man fan, this is a must-read book. For a new look at an old character, this is a great series to read. Riri Williams has, thus far, proven to be a worthy successor to Tony Stark. The new Iron Man is well on her way to becoming triumphant, if only she can avoid the enemy fast enough. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Dec 22, 2016

    The majority of Bendis' work on the various Iron Man titles has been strong up until this point and here he appears to have found a story he can dig deeper with, even more so than International Iron Man. Read Full Review

    The Source by SuperHeroStuff - Marc Buxton Dec 28, 2016

    The rest of the issue sees Riri take on AI Tonys old armors. These sequences allow Stefano Caselli to go to town with some fun and innovative action sequences, but its multiple Iron Man armors going against a single Iron Man. Youve seen it before. But, you havent seen it through a character like Riris eyes, and Bendis' obvious devotion and love for his creation makes Invincible Iron Man #2 a worthwhile read. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Dec 22, 2016

    I can understand creating a new female hero, giving her some high-tech armor and the drive to fight the bad guys - but I still don't see any justification for putting her in harm's way. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Dec 26, 2016

    Not a lot happens in this issue. In the present day we haveRiri undergoing a training exercise and while it is entertaining and fun tolook at, it does little to advance the plot. Meanwhile, in the past we get astory about a loss in Riri's life that we already kind of explored in the firstissue. While it added a little more context, it ultimately felt redundant. Thisissue does give us a nice rapport between Riri and Tony and a cliffhanger thatwill hopefully get the ball rolling in this comic. This wasn't as good as thefirst issue but I found it to still be an enjoyable read. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 24, 2016

    The origin of Riri Williams continues unabated, but so far I don't see anything worth sticking around for. This is a well-made, well-written and well-drawn comic, but it lacks any sort of heart or hook to really make the new character shine. Read Full Review
