    Iron Patriot #2 shows that Ales Kot means business when he wants to put into question what is at stake for Rhodey in this new position of authority. The country is at stake, his family is at stake, his life is at stake, everything important to him is on the line right now. His family continues to play a pivotal role in this book and I hope that continues as this story progresses because you never want to lose focus on the people who shape the kind of person Rhodey is under the suit and as Iron Patriot.

    The nice thing about having a low-key superstar like Rhodey is that Kot and Brown can tell the stories they want without any presumed editorial cockblocking. Until people take notice, that is- it's too early to tell as Kot has just started with Marvel but with this and his run on Secret Avengers, we might be seeing another Fraction on the come-up, in terms of truly grasping how to marry the personality profiling of his characters with Cool, Rad Shit (TM). Take the (James) Rhode(s) less traveled! Read Full Review

    IRON PATRIOT #2 steps up the excitement and offers some legitimately praiseworthy and creative pages. It's by no means one of the most engaging new Marvel titles around -- at least not yet -- but this chapter definitely feels like an improvement over the first. Considering the book's about to dive into some heavy political themes, it has me interested in seeing where it'll go next and how Rhodes will handle the subject. Read Full Review

    Iron Patriot #2 doesn't quite have the impact of the first issue but still isn't that bad of a read. It has its problems for sure, like the story structure, but there is still plenty to like and get invested in. I still recommend the issue, especially seeing how it appears the first arc will be wrapping up shortly. Give it a shot and see what you think. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, the series lacks that certain special quality to really set it above the various past efforts to give Rhodey his own solo title. Read Full Review

    This is all starting to sound pretty familiar, and neither Kot nor Brown spare enough time or space to show us where the originality lies. Read Full Review

    I must say that these first two issues of the new Iron Patriot aren't really anything to get too excited over. I, for one, am not very confident in where Kot, Brown, and Charalampidis are going with this series as of right now but maybe it's too early to tell. I am willing to read and review this whole first arc to see where this comic can go but more importantly where the creators are willing to take it. Rhodey and characters like him who are often living in the shadow of someone else always hold a dear place in my heart and for him to get his own series is what truly intrigued me. In the end all I can say is that I am intrigued but I am still waiting for something big to happen that truly keeps me tied in. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, "Iron Patriot" #2 is a lackluster followup to mediocre debut. Although Kot makes some promising moves, the story gets bogged down by small inconsistencies, unbelievable happenstance, and Brown's dull artwork. Read Full Review
