    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Jun 5, 2013

    I'm legitimately hooked. The book concludes with Tony asking 451 "So... what happened?" and I'm honestly eager to see the answer. Killen's made this controversial change all kinds of intriguing by adding just the right amounts of humor, curiosity, wackiness and downright fun. I'm right there with Tony -- I want to know what comes next. Read Full Review

    Dale Eaglesham is a great fit for this arc, providing the series with the strong visual foundation it had been lacking until now. Between the character designs and frequent flashbacks to the 1960's, there's a strong Jack Kirby vibe to this story. Eaglesham is the rare sort of artist who can channel Kirby in terms of his energy, imagination, and powerful figures without directly aping Kirby's style. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Matt Sargeson Jun 12, 2013

    As retcons go The Secret Origin of Tony Stark is a biggy, but Gillen's skill manages to turn a potentially controversial debacle into a pretty enjoyable (and strangely believable) premise that could give Iron Man a great deal of mileage for months to come. There's still secrets to come and plans to unfold, but it's off to a great start. Take it with a pinch of salt, maybe, but definitely stick around to see how it turns out. Read Full Review

    Iron Man continues to improve. Gillen has turned this title into a comic that makes you chomp at the bit for the next issue. Even though this current story is taking some chances with Tonys origins, Kieron seems to have an ace up his sleeve to make it all work. Issue 12 cant come fast enough. Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Andy Hunsaker Jun 7, 2013

    The jury's still out on Iron Man #11 and these new ideas for Tony's origin. This issue in particular is all talk, but we're just not sure what to believe, and we don't really want to believe what we're being told – and that puts us right in our protagonist's jet-boots, which has to qualify as a success. Not quite enough to overcome trepidation, but maybe it can all work out in the end. Right? Read Full Review

    Imagination Centre - John McCubbin Sep 6, 2013

    Like the previous issues in this storyline, this issue was far from great, and was actually rather slow. The events that happened in the issue were interesting, and different, but the pacing problems really hurt the overall quality of the issue, and if the story continues to develop at this slow pace it won't be good. Like last issue I would recommend this to anyone already getting the series, or people who like origin stories, but otherwise I'd recommend waiting to see if the story picks up, as so far it's been very average.
