    Gillen has a talent for making characters you shouldn't like actually likeable, and here it shows. 451"s sinister side is beginning to show more and more while Death's Head's return is totally enjoyable. The cliffhanger at the end is very, very cliffhanger-y as well. Read Full Review

    Its hard to tell where this story is going, but it seems to be foreshadowing things in the upcoming Infinity crossover. With all the galactic nonsense surrounding 451 and Stark, one would assume that The Secret Origin of Tony Stark will have consequences down the road. Either way, its still a fun read.

    This issue was slightly disappointing, with the story returning to a slow pace. It did however have some interesting plot set-ups, as well as some interesting developments. I also had a bit of excitement, but little action, as well as some decent dialogue. I would only recommend this to anyone who's got the story/series so far, as you might as well to see where the story goes, but otherwise I'd recommend leaving this, and if the story gets better getting it in trade.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 20, 2013

    Perhaps I'm overthinking it, but I liked the idea of Tony Stark as a guy who made good with his mind and his confidence, so having him turn out to be another "Chosen One" undermines a little of what I like about the character, but I suppose I can see where this all is meant to go. Somehow, the combination of art that makes me a little confused and a story that makes me a little unhappy still doesn't torpedo the book entirely, but it does leave it feeling very bland and ill-advised. Iron Man #13 is a book that comes from a misguided place, drawn by an artist who has learned a lot about glamor but not a lot about the underlying craft. Read Full Review
