    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Apr 30, 2010

    All in all, Iron Man #25 is like the armor itself: clean, futuristic, shiny and fun to look at, earning 5 out of 5 stars overall. Well see where the whole limitless power for everyone subplot actually goes, but this is a fine start to a new era for the Golden Avenger. Lets hope they can keep up the excellence Read Full Review

    This issue is a new start for the series after Siege, after the total mind wipe out of Tony Stark, after he lost everything to Norman Osborne. This series is a perfect jumping point for people curious about Iron Man and of course a great tie-in with the Iron Man movie. While the last few issues bored me to death with the mind travel storyline, Im glad to see some of the drama and corporate action back in this series again. Tony Stark is an industrialist and a technologist. The series does better when it sticks to that instead of all that new age mumbo jumbo. Of course, this story ties in with the other big Stark villain who will show up for the movie, Justin Hammer " actually his daughter. I like the hint of sexism directed at her character and am glad to see he portrayed as a worthy boardroom opponent to Stark. I like the new armour, but would have liked to see how much it differs from the old one and how it could no longer be attacked the way the Skrulls did the last time. Larroca fi Read Full Review

    As if providing a new reader-friendly story, great writing, and enjoyable artwork wasn't enough, this issue is also double sized, despite being priced at $3.99. As well as a double-length feature, which is packed with memorable reveals and twists, you also get a few pages looking at the development of the new armor design. From any angle, this is one of the best value comics Marvel has put out in months, and anyone even thinking of buying Iron Man should be assured that now is the time to get on board.

    Comics Bulletin - Danny Djeljosevic May 3, 2010

    Invincible Iron Man reminds me of Grant Morrisons New X-Men back in the day--a comic that felt informed by the film adaptation, but not slavishly devoted to it. Its accessible to movie fans but still stands up as a distinct comic book work. All it takes was a bit of pop culture significance and some talented creators. Read Full Review

    Since the first Iron Man movie, Marvel has (wisely) adjusted the comic book character to match the film version. With the second movie about to be released, they've done it again. Read Full Review

    When it's all said and done Invincible Iron Man #25 represents a fantastic jumping on point for new readers, while still showcasing a good deal of what has made the series so enjoyable of the course of the last two years as well. It's clear that Fraction has more in store for the character of Tony Stark and I'm excited to see him and Larroca continue their fantastic run. Read Full Review

    Tonys back. How many times have we heard this? Its a short little phrase that ensures that plenty of mayhem and adventure await us though, so I dont mind hearing it again. Iron Man is poised to jet headlong into Marvel Comics Heroic Age, and with Fraction and Larroca at the helm; The Invincible Iron Man will surely continue to lead the way with quality storytelling and art.

    Mania - Chad Derdowski Apr 30, 2010

    Despite my dissapointment with a continuing lack of action in what is supposed to be one of Marvel’s premire books, I must say that Mr. Fraction is one hell of a storyteller. I kept turning the pages and I didn’t pause for an instant. While I didn’t get exactly what I wanted, I must admit that what I got was good. And a B- is not a bad grade; it’s still a good one. The grade reflects my expectations rather than the talent of the people behind the scenes. But if you’ve been thinking about reading Iron Man, this is the perfect place to start and I’ll still be back next month. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin May 4, 2010

    Invincible Iron Man #25 was better than I expect it to be. Still, while there are some positives in this issue a lot of the story felt like a rehash of everything that we have seen happen to Tony in the past countless times. There was just no originality to the story. Fraction gave me absolutely no reason to start picking this series up again. Read Full Review
