    Still, Gillen adds some nice touches as well, such as Stark still being in denial regarding the recent revelation about his parents, and also a new development with his step-brother. Gillen also pays some attention to storytelling fundamentals, like reminding readers who all the players are in this issue, that make it surprisingly accessible for the fourth chapter of a five-part story. "Iron Man" #21 is a good comic that could have been better, but manages to stay enjoyable enough. Read Full Review

    While the issue was mostly set-up and exposition it was still pretty enjoyable. Up until now the arc pitted Stark against the Mandarins with little to no information on what they wanted which made their actions feel a little random. Now that we know what motivates Red Peril and the Mandarins it puts the arc in perspective and it really feels like both sides are fighting for something. The ending to this issue points to an action filled, dramatic conclusion to Iron Metropolitan and I eagerly await its arrival. Read Full Review

    On the plus side, Bennetts art has really grown on me. I still think theres some trouble with choreography action in a clear way, but that aside, things look really nice and his layout have improved. Read Full Review
