    I'm ready for Dark Reign to end, but I'm really enjoying this little corner of the event. Read Full Review

    Overall, while getting to be a long story arc, Worlds Most Wanted has definitely been a great read. Lets hope its climax and finale live up to all the build up. Read Full Review

    IGN - Bryan Joel Aug 5, 2009

    The "part nine" tag on the cover of this book might be off-putting to some and mentally atrophying to longtime readers, but the content inside is still the first-rate stuff we've come to expect from Invincible Iron Man. Fraction has a great cast of characters on his hands here and continues to find ways to capitalize on Tony's new status quo. Read Full Review

    If you like what Matt Fraction is doing, then you are going to find quite a bit to like about Invincible Iron Man #16. If you're against the whole “World's Most Wanted” thing, then I suggest sitting out until Fraction's through telling his entire story. Read Full Review

    I found it difficult to decide whether to give this issue a rating of 3 or 3.5 bullets. In the end, I went for the slightly higher rating, because whilst I've been finding recent issues of the "World's Most Wanted" storyline to be a little slow and stretched-out, Invincible Iron Man is still an above-average superhero book that I look forward to reading each month. Hopefully the story will regain a little momentum as it approaches its closing chapters, because there are still some very interesting ideas in play here, and I'm looking forward to seeing how Fraction brings them all to a head.

    So while the issue may feel a bit decompressed, and while it may seem like a long way until this story wraps up, there's more than enough here to keep me coming back for the next installment. And once it's collected, I suspect I will enjoy it even more. Read Full Review

    Invincible Iron Man #16 was a marked improvement on what we have gotten so far in this "World's Most Wanted" arc. Fraction finally seems to be ready to stop giving us countless set-up issues and give us more plot progression as this arc moves into its final act. Hopefully Fraction can carry the improvement he showed in this into the last three issue in this arc. Read Full Review
