It's put up or shut up time with KORVAC as the android mastermind begins the next phase of his ascent toward absolute power, and IRON MAN begrudgingly decides to finally ask for help. But...from who? As he takes charge of new allies and tries to use HELLCAT's weakened state to his advantage, Tony Stark might instead risk everyone's life including his own, especially when he confronts Korvac himself, one on one.

    The script"especially juxtaposed with Cafu's art and Frank D'Armata's colors"turns into a moody, weird, and brilliant story, one that shows just what Iron Man is capable of as a Marvel title and a Marvel character. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Jonathan Mullen Jan 13, 2021

    Okay, so this is the end of the first arc, and in the world of trade-waiting, some people wait until this point to check out a series. If you are one of these people, you need to read this book. This is a creative team working at the highest level to create a run on a character that we will be talking about for years to come. And thats not an if, anymore. Its a fact. This is easily the best the character has been since Matt Fractions character-defining stint, and Cantwell is already reaching the highs of that run. If this book keeps on at its current level, we might be looking at one of the best Iron Man series of all time. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jan 6, 2021

    Cafu delivers some stunning art throughout this issue. There isn't a lot of action, but the art does a great job of focusing on the characters and the style of the art perfectly captures the mood of the story. Read Full Review

    The fun ragtag team put together for this storyline doesn't get much use, but it's still an otherwise solid part of this ongoing story. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jan 6, 2021

    Iron Man #5 is a slow-building issue that has a heartbreaking twist. The second half of the comic is an intense confrontation that will change the course of the series. There are more characters added to the series, and it is always interesting to see smaller heroes get a chance of exposure inside a bigger book. But Hellcat continues to be the star of the comic. Iron Mans actions within the book may have made the reader much less sympathetic to his problems. Read Full Review
