    I didn't even get to address the surprise visitor or what looks like the first real conflict that Riri will face, but let's just say that this book could be going in some really exciting directions. Riri might have one of the best origin stories in recent memory, and three issues in, this might be the perfect time to catch on and catch up. Read Full Review

    The emoting in the scene really sells it. It feels like a child melting down, finally talking about her turmoil and trauma. Its a fantastic scene. Read Full Review

    Riri does face her first big Marvel villain, though that is yet to actually happen till the next issue. Regardless, Invincible Iron Man #3 made some big moves. This is a bold new direction for everyone who has ever had anything to do with Tony. His impact is clear as day, especially for the things he can make Riri confront just by being himself(as an AI of course). Read Full Review

    AIPT - Chris Hassan Jan 18, 2017

    The rookie-replacing-the-veteran-hero angle is something we've seen quite a lot of in the past few years. With that said, by injecting Riri into Tony's life, Bendis and Caselli have truly managed to make Iron Man fresh again. It also doesn't hurt that in just three issues, Riri comes across as more fully formed than some comic characters who've been around for decades. Read Full Review

    I still don't know why they need another Iron Man - there's a perfectly good one who keeps showing up in their movies - but Riki's shaping up to be an interesting addition to the Marvel Universe, too. Read Full Review

    We Got This Covered - Christian Bone Jan 18, 2017

    Issue #3 of Invincible Iron Man nicely keeps the balance between re-introducing some old friends and furthering new hero Riri Williams' own story. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 21, 2017

    All in all, this is issue succeeds in imparting character to the women of its cast, and the fact that all of the main characters ARE women works to the story's advantage, but like so many Bendis stories, the plot gets sidetracked by long sequences of dialogue. Invincible Iron Man #3 is still a very likeable issue though, and the art is first-rate from cover to cover, with promises of an interesting conflict next time around. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Aaron Reese Jan 23, 2017

    Overall, I like Riri and her place in Iron Man’s world. It forces me to wrestle with my personal preferences about Marvel’s editorial edicts, but it’s funny, touching, entertaining and continues Tony Stark’s story even if it doesn’t seem like it at first. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Jan 23, 2017

    We once again get more of the same from this book and it'sfrustrating. These last three issues have been a result of Bendis not properlyintroducing this character prior to this moment. We know this character's barebones now though and we can finally start diving into an actual story and thecliffhanger gives me some hope on that front. I'm begging this book to pick upat this point. If it doesn't, I'm not sure how long I'll continue keeping upwith it. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jan 21, 2017

    As much as I enjoy Bendis dialogue (and I know not everybody does), he still hasn't sold me on why Ironheart is worth following. Marvel invents and reinvents a million new superheroes a day. Ironheart as a character, and Invincible Iron Man as a comic, need some better reasons for why I should care. I think this whole thing is being held together by pure curiosity and amazing art.
