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.

"Session terminated. Goodbye"

I think a few online games out there could use someone like Arsenal. Maybe it would make things more enjoyable.
As for the issue itself. It was ok, I guess. Nice art, not a bad dialogue and likable enough cast.

The thing is, it's issue #6 and I really can't tell where this book is going, what it's aim is. It seems to wander around topics li more

While the art is enjoyable and this is a good story, makes me wonder about the overall Iron Man story. Does Dan Slott even have a long game for this comic or is he just playing from issue to issue. Is the current storyl arc complete? Because this issue feels unnecessary right now. Yes it is a good story but the comic just feels like all the issues could easily be one shots

I don’t like Dan Slott’s writing, he has great great ideas and knows how to do a good plot, but he is terrible with characters when he is not inspired, that’s why we got a Spider Man run in which Peter Parker rarely evolved as a character despite intricate plots, even brilliant ones like Spider Verse.
So far it’s the same with Iron Man, this book is about everything but Tony, and thre more

What a mess. Truly awful event. First of all, what were the consequences? None. Okay. Major character death that happens so fast and doesn't make any sense. This was gonna be the epic Infinity Stones saga? Oh please.

Duggan usually writes well but this was just so bad.

On the level of 'What Happened', I kinda get it but I don't like it -- another silly alternate universe with more pointless alternate character versions, a vague new direction for Loki that's bound to be ignored by the overabundance of writers who'll be using him in the future, and something about the stones getting souls.

Pointless and idiotic to the end. No rhyme lr reason.
Seems like this whole event was engineered to get rid of Drax.
The Guardians hardly played any role. Warlock was ridiculous throughout. Whoever approved this story should be fired?
I can’t believe this is the same Duggan did in Uncanny Avengers and Nova. His Guardians run had been lackluster but this is outright terrible.

Brilliant. Ed Brisson is the best writer working in Marvel right now, along with Donny Cates.
The X Men haven’t been this good since Bendis left. The ending is epic, tragic, heroic, brilliant and creative.
Hope Brisson stays in the X Men books.

This book is unpretentious, has a great cast and is a lot of fun. Kid Loki, Valkyrie, Anabelle Riggs, Trog, Skurge.
Cullen Bunn has to be one of the more underrated writers around. He has managed to make Thunderstrike and to some extent Angela interesting.
As good as its title.

Cates made the Inhumans good again. Yes, the ending is rushed and too easy, but Cates made the Royal Family compelling and dramatic again after their awful mishandling by Marvel these last few years. Vitally, Black Bolt is not all powerful anymore. Look forward to seeing them in Cates’ Guardians of the Galaxy run.

Still awful. Irrelevant, disjointed, terrible characterization, characters thrown together for no reason, unfocused. The only thing that gives some dignity to this story is Mike Deodato, as bad a fit as his style is for this. Shame on me for not jumping ship. Has to be one of the worst comics of the year.
