    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jan 2, 2019

    Slott and Whitley do a great job of reaffirming why we like Tony Stark and giving Amanda a personal arc that showcases the family issues that are under the surface is a great idea. Read Full Review

    Tony Stark Iron Man is a series that seems to be going from strength to strength, and this latest major arc is a real page turner. The Controller is becoming a villain with a real threat level now, and his plan is dark and disturbing. This has the making of a definitive Iron Man story and run. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Frantz Jerome Jan 3, 2019

    Tony Stark: Iron Man #7 begins a blending of all these aspects of Tony's identity. Reforming his exploits into more of an act of responsibility to the people in his life. Not without struggle, the cavalier party boy futurist is growing up. Dan Slott has evenly divided Tony into compartments and then starts to put those pieces together in a way that breathes new life into a character well-traversed and explored over the last 56 years. If there is ever going to be a way to separate the comic Tony Stark from the MCU Tony Stark, Slott has written a way out. Valerio Schiti's artwork lays the foundation and does a great job differentiating the flesh and blood world with the digital one. Read Full Review

    The most compelling parts of the issue have to do with his allies, like Jocasta, Friday, and Amanda, but you won't come away loving Tony Stark. Seriously guy, get another hobby. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Jan 6, 2019

    I really want to get excited about this Iron Man run, but right now I am kind of bored. This issue is more setup inside the eSCAPE and that's kind of what I want to do right now. Dan Slott and Jeremy Whitley set up some interesting things, but that was never the issue in this series overall. I need some payoff and I need it soon. Read Full Review

    I spent a shameful amount of time laughing at the robot relationship talk. Also A+ for the big red anti-Controller button.

    Enjoying the art and writing. Plus finally progressing the story, took long time to get here. A story that surely sparks my interest.

    This is my favorite issue of this series yet. I love how Tony is written here. He's got his ego but he's also willing to do what's necessary to save the day. Even if it pushes some moral boundaries. I loved the fakeout with Controller. At first, I thought "Of course, Tony would know" and thought it was a cool way of subverting expectations. And then at the end it turns out that Tony's ego got the best of him and Controller's plan is much more malicious. The ending is actually really dark, with everyone going out into the streets and killing each other because they think it's just a VR game, and that's what makes Tony's hubris earlier in the issue so much more devastating. And on top of that, we get more Aaron Stack, who's always really fun. more

    That who you do it. It's fun but in the same time dramatic. Tony is steal a douch but we love to follow him. Love all the part with Amanda and Tony adoptive parents. Love the controller scheme. It's really interesting. Beast Iron Man story !

    Cover - I take the Uncanny variant. Really awesome but fairly not in link. 1/2
    Writing - What a very good story. Thank you Mr Slott ! 3/3
    Arts - Love the art. Maybe not always perfect but close. Maybe a lot of panel without background, but so much more in the layout. 2.5/3
    Feeling - I'm in love with this ongoing. 2/2
    +1 for all the respect Slott have for his reader !

    "She shots. She misses."

    Now, this was really fun.

    Controller's plan turned out to be pretty cool and smart. Tony was much less quippy than usual and much more focused and hands on. Reminded me of Tony from times of Extremis and Matt Fraction's Invincible Iron Man.

    And that little mystery happening in eScape has me interested. Did the program did this on its own, was it Tony or maybe Arno?

    I want subsequent issues to be like this one. Or better.

    I dunno why the writers are terrified of letting Jocasta or Aaron Stack put together two sentences in a row without making a lame robo-joke. Do they think we're in danger of mistaking them for human?

    Terrible. Cartoonish like Slott at its worst. Still a rip off of Ready Player One.
    The Mom Son subplot gets dragged out and it’s not needed. It plays like Terms of Endearment.
    And a third rate villain like the Controller is your big bad? And he even gets to give an evil laugh.
    I’m signing out.
