The Five Nightmares, Part 2: Murder, Inc.
Tony Stark comes face-to-face with his biggest nightmare: an amoral twenty-something biohacker with no loyalties or allegiances to anything other than money and power. Oh, and he also happens to be the son of Tony's greatest nemesis. But what's the exact nature of Zeke Stane's menace? It's something unlike anything Tony has built before...and unlike anything Iron Man has had to beat before. The Golden Avenger faces the fight of his life! By rising star Matt Fraction (PUNISHER WAR JOURNAL, IMMORTAL IRON FIST) with jaw-dropping art by Salvador Larroca (UNCANNY X-MEN)!

    Secondly: Isn't anybody going to mention the new Mobile Organism Design Only for Genocide? I mean, come on! M.O.D.O.G.? That sounds like Snoop Dogg's younger brother. (”Mo' Dog, mo' problems) Read Full Review

    IGN - Bryan Jun 4, 2008

    With Invincible Iron Man, Matt Fraction has distilled Tony Stark down to what is vitally cool about the character in 2008 and built a solid foundation with it. It's easily become one of my favorite Marvel books on the stands. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jun 4, 2008

    For the most part I love this new series. As with nearly every character he touches, Fraction displays an innate understanding of Iron Man and his world. But as long as the art continues to look like this, the book will be forever held back from true greatness. Hopefully Marvel addresses the problem in one way or another. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Joey Davidson Jun 3, 2008

    I'm going to start this with the most obvious and recognizable mechanic at work in this book, or most any comic book for that matter: the art. Larocca and Darmata produce some of the most well polished, detailed and refined work in any book you'll likely find on Marvel's shelf. With every fight scene and every dialogue exchange, Larocca manages to create the sense of the epic that one will be hard-pressed to match. For the most part, even the small and relatively simple panels look great: Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Jun 10, 2008

    Invincible Iron Man #2 was a fun read. Fraction is delivering a story that certainly has mass appeal, is easy to read and is particularly new reader friendly. Fraction is making Invincible Iron Man an accessible read for anyone who loved the Iron Man movie and then decided to give this comic book a try. I have a feeling that Invincible Iron Man will turn out to be much more popular than Iron Man Director of SHIELD. I would expect to see Iron Man Director of SHIELD get cancelled within a year or so.

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Jul 5, 2008

    Art-wise, the entire book is a delight. There is a risk that the colouring which is heavily paint-like will stiffen the storytelling, but Larroca,s dynamic posing and effective use of iron Man allows the work to breathe like a comic book instead of a photo novel. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Timothy Callahan Jun 3, 2008

    Jam-packed with story, complex themes, and strong characters, "Invincible Iron Man" is the Iron Man comic you've been waiting to read, whether you knew you were waiting for an Iron Man comic or not. This is the one. Especially if you can forgive the ever-shifting faces. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Jun 5, 2008

    With several continuity blunders that several scenes are built on, I'm not inclined to give it a Must Read, but, if you're a new Iron Man reader, I'd imagine this issue would be more than adequate for your tastes and probably a Must Read issue with ease. I suspect Extremis will be on the way out and we'll see a return to classic Tony postSecret Invasion to play more into this title's strengths. Read Full Review
