    AIPT - David Brooke May 31, 2021

    "Infinite Destinies" has kicked off its story with a strong sense that it understands its characters. In fact, the Infinity Stones are almost an afterthought, as it's not the main focus that allows the annual format to be enjoyed as intended in a done-in-one story -- though many will be intrigued by the idea of the Stones making their way back into circulation.

    Multiversity Comics - Joe Skonce Jun 3, 2021

    "Iron Man Annual" #1 has its moments, but lackluster villains and a shoehorned event set up ruined what could have been a great issue. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford May 31, 2021

    When all is said and done, Iron Man Annual #1 delivers a multifaceted story that serves a lot more than I expected. It does a good job as a starting point for something bigger, while also providing a fulfilling narrative of its own. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jun 3, 2021

    A great opening scene, a smart approach to defeating the villain and Tony Stark personally mad about a tech villain targeting Miles Morales make for a very solid issue, kicking off Infinite Destinies with a bang. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Jenna Anderson Jun 2, 2021

    With art that's inspired, albeit a little predictable, and a number of unanswered questions regarding the larger event, Iron Man Annual #1 is far from a perfect interlude from Marvel Comics' Iron Man, but it proves to be a reasonably well-executed, sorta-standalone story. Read Full Review

    Pretty impressive start to this saga. By character strengths and how it applies to how they all interact, it shows the layers to characters. This genuinely feels like the Iron Man from the Kurt Busiek days. Miles speaking to Iron Man for an experience that left a lot of trauma shows his willingness to ask for help. Because if those villains who tortured him came back, it would just play into those stereotypes on how you can solve mental issues with violence. Iron Man meanwhile feels like a superhero, he knows a kid like Miles didn't deserve remotely similar to his origin. Better yet, he's following up on his promise to ensure no one ends up like him. Also there's something interesting to the circuit of the Infinity Stones and how to separat more

    I really love how Iron Man is telling us what a great hero Miles Morales is just a few pages after Miles, a superhero, tells him he wouldn't snitch his uncle, a supervillain, to the "rich man", that's a great heroic mentality in Jed Mackay's dumb mind.

    P.S.: Psycamorean is, of course, again obsessed with me because he has a sad, sad life.

    - Good character writing with Tony. I didn't know seeing him angry against Assesors is something I needed in my life.
    - Tony/Miles content.
    - His suit showcased more features in this issue than the entire run.
    Could Jed Mackay take over the ongoing run?

    I can say that I sincerely like it, as I have recently commented, I am taking Marvel again due to the great disappointment that DC is doing, clarifying that I do not care if it is DC, Marvel, Kamite, or whoever its publisher is, I do not care either if this or another writer as long as the work is good.
    This annual was exciting for me, the interaction with Miles was pleasant. Maybe the emotionality was a bit clumsy but it worked, however the action and the art is what stands out.

    This was good. MacKay writes a good Iron Man. Merlyn is again really, really dumb. I could really delve into why his complaint about Miles is just... a sign of a lack of reading comprehension, but I'm sure he's already cried enough over this blunder.

    Miles Morales sics Iron Man on the Assessor and his teleporting pet, Quantum. Tony shuts down their operation, but they escape. It's a pretty dang good Iron Man one-shot, and the way Tony ties this adventure to his origin story is great. Nice art, too. But it's not so hot as an introduction to/explanation of Quantum, who remains the flattest of the new Stone-holders (by a wide margin). The B strip is beautiful and full of promise, but it's just a character sketch with the actual story still to come.

    It's clear that Jed MacKay has an understanding of who iron man is, but the the presentation of that understanding did not work for me fully.

    I'm not a fan of those issues where there is a monologue, while the hero is pretty much doing repeated unrelated to it things. Also the monologue was not that good too IMO. It came to me as too obvious and direct, so it was really unnatural to me. The ideas behind were great tho and close to Iron man.

    Honestly have no idea how ppl are giving this high marks. Art is bland, dialogue is clunky, I don't even know how quantum got his powers and the action is mediocre.
