Things are grim in Broxton, Oklahoma as the Ghost moves in for the kill -- and the only thing between him and Tony Stark is a shell-shocked Maria Hill and a half-conscious Pepper Potts, fresh out of surgery. And deep in the recesses of Tony's mind, Dr. Strange and Stark get down and dirty with the tyrant king running the show and laying waste to Tony's consciousness. Where are they? What's happening? And why can't Tony remember the Iron Man? Rated A …$2.99

    If you're not reading Invincible Iron Man, you're missing out on one of the best superhero titles currently being produced. And that's not just my opinion: my fellow reviewers Danny Djeljosevic, Jason Sacks and Paul Brian McCoy have all given the book high marks in their respective reviews of issue #20, issue #21 and issue #22. I'm pleased to add my own positive review to the pile, and to encourage anyone who might not have tried this book to give it a shot. Read Full Review

    Iron Man is still in a catatonic state and only with the help of Doctor Strange can he assume his identity in the world he created in his mind and emerge outside. But elsewhere, the Ghost is actively looking for his body and some of Toby Starks closest allies have already begun to fall. Will Iron Man come back in time? The issue continues the unnecessary detour inside of Iron Mans mind. I understand that some filler was needed to make the heros return match the Siege storyline running elsewhere, but this is a stretch and as a reader, I know what will happen and when. The question is when will the creative team put it all together before we all lose interest. Visually Larroca continues to pen the best looking Iron Man in years, although his talent is wasted on this trivial story. Read Full Review

    IGN - Tim Lenaghan Feb 3, 2010

    All things considered, this issue of Invincible Iron Man is really just an example of a storyline that's been extended about one issue too long. Had the events depicted here been condensed and combined with last month's offering the pacing of "Disassembled" would be markedly improved. With that being said, I'm looking forward to Iron Man finally returning to the pages of this book next month. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Feb 2, 2010

    This series has been in gear since it started. Even with the lead character mentally compromised, the stories have been solid. This is a testament to Fraction's writing, Larroca and D'Armata's art, and the splendid cast of characters put in place around Tony Stark. I look forward to where this book goes from here. With the second movie mere months from debuting, this title is poised to deliver great Iron Man stories. Right now, however, it needs to tidy up so those upcoming stories can be enjoyed by even the most casual of Iron Fan. Read Full Review

    Disappointing. Inconsistent art combined with a repeat story combines to make an issue that can be skipped. I would recommend waiting until next issue to see how this story is wrapped up. Read Full Review
