A war needs weapons - but Tony Stark once vowed that he'd never build weapons again!
So why's he hunkered down with Screwbeard the Dwarf in Avengers Mountain? And what is he making?

    Paolo Villanelli has some great art in this issue. The style is different from what was previous established in the series, but there are some great panels in this issue. All of the sequences with the dragon look great, especially the action. Read Full Review

    Paolo Villanelli inherits artistic duty with the visuals and does not disappoint. Villanelli's dark lines and flashy poses pop panes off the page and provide an amazing landscape for Gail Simone's witty dark humor. Simone and Villanelli is a tag team I can rock with. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Jun 5, 2019

    Turning Tony Stark over to fresh creators for his big War of the Realms tie-in looks like an entirely good idea so far. Gail Simone and Paolo Villanelli both employ an additive approach, demonstrating a mastery of the title's existing strengths before unleashing their own distinctive spins. This arc looks primed to live up to what's come before - and pushing the title's quality bar to new heights is a distinct possibility for the following issues. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Jun 9, 2019

    Gail Simone jumps on Iron Man and while it was more for regular readers of the run, hopefully, War of the Realms readers who check it out can have some fun with it as well. It is peppered with the usually Simone pop culture references and jokes so if thats not your thing, youve been warned. It is 100% my thing and because of that, I had fun with a book that had recently had fallen off my pull list. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michael Govan Jun 10, 2019

    I will say that I didn't much care for Tony's inner turmoil throughout the issue. In the virtual world, Tony drank alcohol. It's certainly an interesting concept, whether that actually counts or not, but the execution hasn't gripped me so far. Neither has the idea of Tony being a copy or 'clone' of the original. I don't dislike the ideas but I am indifferent to how it's playing out so far, an issue since it's the focus of the book. Still, overall a pretty fun and enjoyable issue. Read Full Review

    Tony Stark: Iron Man doesn't skip a beat when integrating itself into the "War of the Realms" event. Read Full Review
