Tony Stark is getting tired of apologizing for being himself, especially when as Iron Man he's more powerful than most any other human being on Earth. As he wears himself out trying to do everything he can to be a force of good in the world, he's beginning to chafe at the idea that he really owes anybody anything. Is it too much to ask for a thank you? He's trying to keep his head down and his ego in check, but when KORVAC reveals himself as the puppet master behind Stark's latest investment, Tony will at least have somewhere to channel his anger and frustration... That is, if he survives the conflict at all.

    Big Comic Page - Jonathan Mullen Nov 12, 2020

    I wont lie though, Im frustrated. People who look at this and say the team dont understand Iron Man really annoy me. So let me be clear – Cantwell has taken Tony in a bold new direction, and it is exactly what this character has needed. Regardless of whether you want to blame the MCU or just Marvel not knowing what to do with him, this book in just three issues has lifted Iron Man from a decade of mediocrity. Tony as a character hasnt changed in almost a ten years, and in an industry that worships the status quo, Cantwell has taken a risk to change that. He gets Tony in a way that I think most fans dont. Tony is a man trying to be better but constantly fighting against his worst instincts, all while his background and intellect tell him that hes better than everyone else. That alone is why this book works as well as it does, and why this series is currently one of the best comics being published right now. Read Full Review

    This is easily one of the best titles that Marvel is putting out right now, and you should definitely hop on the bandwagon sooner than later. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Nov 11, 2020

    This series continues to feel entirely new, which is especially impressive when you consider this character is nearly 70 years old. Iron Man #3 continues to explore a morose Iron Man who is a hero, but is seriously questioning why. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Nov 11, 2020

    Iron Man #3 is a terrific addition to the current run. The world has changed around Tony Stark, and he is still trying to adapt himself. Each panel is stunning as we see Iron Man switch between locations and adversaries. The final fight scene is heart-pumping action and ends with an event that left me desperate to see what happens next. And with hints at the villain of this story arc, Tonys got a big fight ahead of him. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Gabriel Hernandez Nov 11, 2020

    IRON MAN #3 takes Iron Man further down the rabbit hole of self-loathing before dealing with the biggest blow of all from the series' main villain. The art is gorgeous on all fronts, but the story's constant Iron Man bashing borders on sadistic. Read at your own risk. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 17, 2020

    Tony Stark is having problems figuring it all out, but this issue mostly isn't. I'm not sure I love it, but it's a fresh take on Iron Man when we really need one. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Nov 11, 2020

    There's nothing bad about Iron Man #3 at all. It's a solid comic with an interesting story and great art. As a chapter of the opening arc, it's fantastic. But, the arc so far isn't anything that's jumping out as an instant classic. It is fantastic storytelling though. It's also a great exploration of Tony Stark as a person. If you're a fan of Iron Man, Cantwell, or Cafu, it's an issue to check out but for new readers, this isn't one that'll hook you. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - clayhinojosa10 Nov 11, 2020

    I'm less interested in Tony's ego and privilege, and more interested in the story of the villains attacking Iron Man, Tony learning a few life lessons along the way is great, but I want to read an Iron Man comic so that Tony Stark can be Iron Man. I want the tech, I want maybe a new variant of the suit, but most of all I want a good story. Read Full Review
