KORVAC is on the loose and Tony Stark is on the hook for it. Iron Man and Hellcat were lucky to survive their first encounter with Korvac and his new disciples, but finding him and stopping him is proving an even greater challenge. Tony is reticent to let other hero allies in on the fact that he opened up a giant can of worms all on his own, but it might be a moot point given that Korvac has placed Tony under a very clever and threatening gag order. As Korvac powers down all of New York City in order to try and again go cosmic, Tony's forced to turn to lesser-known colleagues on the fringe in order to stop him. One advantage he has: Hellcat i more

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Dec 17, 2020

    Iron Man #4 is a beautiful issue. Theres a small cast of characters, heroes in particular, and Cantwell makes the reader feel for them both. Korvac is a terrifying villain, and the plans he has for the future are cosmic in their potential. Tony and Patsy will not be able to face him alone Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 16, 2020

    Much like chess, Iron Man is now a hero with finite and distinct resources which hasn't been the case for some time. He's a hero who is growing to discover himself while also discovering something new with Patsy Walker. All the while, an old villain wants to destroy him forever, but ain't that the Stark luck? Iron Man #4 continues to trend the character upward and onward for those looking for a more human Tony Stark. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Dec 16, 2020

    Cafu does a great job with the art. The issue is very character focused so the art reflects it in great close up moments with the characters and details that give an intimacy to the imagery. A great looking issue. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Jonathan Mullen Dec 18, 2020

    This is another really good issue which focuses on this books two key strengths, character and mood. Cantwell has spent the last three issues making us care about Tony and Patsy, and now as we start to reach the end of this act of the story, the characters themselves, rather than the action, take focus for an issue which is something I absolutely applaud. You dont need massive fights to make a comic worth reading and this book is absolutely worth reading. With Cantwell, CAFU and DArmata bringing their usual A game for this issue, its another easy recommendation. This series consistently breaks the high standards it sets for itself, and this latest issue is no exception. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - clayhinojosa10 Dec 16, 2020

    Cantwell has failed to tell a coherent story throughout four issues. Telling the story about the man without the money and armor is just something we dont need. Im reading Iron Man, I want Iron Man. I want the armor, the money, the snark. Fun aspects of Tony Starks Iron Man. Cantwell seems to be incapable of creating that story. Read Full Review
