Iron Man and his small band of allies go interstellar as they pursue Korvac to the farthest reaches of the galaxy, even as the villainous android intellect tries to telepathically lure Hellcat and Tony toward his bizarre utopian visions. But after an unexpected left turn leaves Iron Man on a remote and uncharted planet, Korvac might take the opportunity to blow Shellhead's vulnerable friends out of the stars once and for all.

    This Iron Man run is proving to be one of the most must-read series Marvel has right now. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 17, 2021

    Depending on tastes, and despite the usual problems with single-issue storytelling, this is a near-perfect comic book. It has humor, incredible stakes, great dialogue, a surprise ending, and many personal character moments. You'll need to have read the entire series to get the full scope of each moment, and this is slower, more cinematic storytelling, but for what it's trying to achieve it works impeccably well. Iron Man #7 efficiently juggles spectacle, stakes, sharply written characters, and sci-fi. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Mar 17, 2021

    Cafu delivers some beautifully detailed art. The characters and settings are filled with beautiful details and the art does a brilliant job of matching and elevating the tone of the story. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Mar 23, 2021

    Cantwell's Tony Stark knows his limits, but still feels like Iron Man, while CAFU can even make Frog-Man look cool. Well worth your time. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Rob Stryczek Mar 17, 2021

    Cantwell creates scenes that explore the vulnerability of Tony and Patsy in this series. While this issue focuses more on their telepathic confrontation with Korvac, we still see glimpses of that through interactions. This issue begins to show Hellcat that she can work to get the upper edge on Korvac through Tonys support even if he keeps blocking their attempts for the time being. This creative team flourishes in storytelling and beautiful art. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Mar 17, 2021

    Iron Man #7 slows down for a moment to give its characters (and readers) a chance to breathe. This is no bad thing, thanks to thoughtful writing and still-gorgeous art. There's plenty of new information to chew on here. This isn't a "hop on" episode or a "prove why this title is great" issue, but it should be eminently satisfying to readers who have already put their faith in this talented creative team.

    Big Comic Page - Jonathan Mullen Mar 26, 2021

    If you like Iron Man, Marvel cosmic, and if you love Star Trek (given some of the ideas and imagery this book is playing with) then you should be reading this. Its brilliantly written, amazingly drawn, and nothing suggests that this book can be anything less moving forwards. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Mar 17, 2021

    Final Thoughts:Iron Man #7 takes the desperate space chase and throws a big monkey wrench in the works. The existential discussion about the meaning of life was interesting, if a bit out of place, and the twist at the end is a true surprise leaving you to wonder what happens next. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - ozwoods Mar 17, 2021

    Iron Man #7 tries to up the stakes and show what Iron Man and the whole cosmos has to lose if Korvac wins and it's pretty underwhelming. As usual, the art by Cafu with D'Armata's colors is great, but the rest of the comic feels like it's padding itself out before reaching the parts people actually want to see. If you're a fan of this series then you'll like this. If not, then it won't be convincing you anytime soon. Like Cantwell's Dr. Doom series, this might be a series that's best read after it's finished. Read Full Review
