I was intirigued by the direction till Patsy got offended by the word Man. I laughed and stopped reading.

A shame since Cantwell seems to have a good voice for Tony but if characters care more about being pc than focusing on the story then ill pass.

It's like every time you respond, you make it even clearer that you were offended by the content. You're perpetuating PC culture even more than this comic has by being so incredibly sensitive to a single sentence. if you care more about being pc than focusing on the merits of the comic then ill pass.

@YourGreenMuse I gotta disagree with you. The line your talking to stood out to me as well. I stopped reading for a second and rolled my eyes. Then I finished the comic.

I read this because I usually enjoy Max Bemis' writing. And overall, I liked this. It is drenched in tangents and references, however, and while I kind of like the chaotic nature of the prose, I know that would be a major turn off for some. The concept is cool, and the pacing was adequate. I will say, some of the art is a little rough. But yeah, this reads like a crazy person wrote it, but not in more

This is such a breath of fresh air after Iron Man 2020. You have no idea. I like when Tony tries to go back to basics (which is what he does with every relaunch, oddly enough), but I think that this time the writer wasn't lying, and that's very exciting. Cantwell has a good voice for all the characters, as far as I could tell. I'm so in for Korvac, and if we could get more of Iron Man's ridiculous more

This was a really well done zero issue. I think both issues collected are some of the most important issues of Hulk ever, and they paint a very crazy picture that I'm sure, given Immortal Hulk's popularity, some segment of the readerbase was unaware of. There's a bit of age in these issues, but overall, they still hold up very well. If you've never read these, this is the perfect way to get them.

This was a lot of fun, and managed to tie all the one-shots together aside from the Magneto one. This series set out to be an artistic showcase and to seed plot points for Hickman's grand x-plan, and it did both to varying degrees of success. It was never bad, but it wasn't always amazing. I don't regret reading this one.
