    The fact that this series is still going strong after two issues with the title character not even present shows just how great it is. With a lesser creative team, this book would have potentially collapsed trying to deal with such raw emotional themes, but this series always manages to find some glimmer of hope along the way. For its depiction of mental health alone I think this book will go down as something truly important, and as an Iron Man series it continues to become the gold standard with each passing issue. Its raw, emotional, beautiful and painful, and every issue is nothing short of a delight to read. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jun 9, 2021

    Iron Man #9 suffers a bit after a month's delay, since it takes a side journey with Korvac to find an ally and maybe even some validation in his goals and desires. Since the last issue focused on Patty Walker, and this issue focuses on Korvac, it'll be a nice return to have Iron Man back in the next issue. That said, this issue does a good job capturing the horror of a man who has lost his humanity and how the robotic parts that make the man can't even come close to revealing the pain within.

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Jun 9, 2021

    Iron Man #9 puts the spotlight firmly on the villain, turning a would-be recruiting session with the Human Torch into a deep dive into Korvac's past. It reveals a complicated history using clear language and outstanding art, but it remains so faithful to the character that it just winds up extending the problem Korvac's always had: For a supergenius bent on universal conquest, he's awfully dull and dumb.
