I haven't been the biggest fan of the "Stark Realities" storyline, but I thought this issue was a perfectly good wrap up (especially considering the story's climax was in the last issue). I'm also looking forward to seeing what happens with the human drama they cued up.

It's a perfectly good issue, but it's held back by an event that's now starting to feel simultaneously overstuffed and stretched thin. We've spent too much time in Central Park. I'm still looking forward to reading the conclusion, but I'm also looking forward to the event wrapping up.

I liked this one. It was very different than the other tie-ins in that it's not a backstory or a prequel. It felt more like a non-.HU issue, except for the lack of Spider-Man. Also, the art was great and really made Arcade seem more menacing and less like a big ol doof.

ESSENTIAL "HUNTED" TIE-IN!
•  The Vulture is one of Spider-Man's oldest villains and his oldest villain...
•  ...but that doesn't make him any less dangerous. Kraven's biggest hunt has thrown everything upside down and there's plenty of carrion for the Vulture.

I've been following TS:IM since issue 1, which was my first Iron Man comic. It feels like a lot of issues, including this one, rely heavily on previous Iron Man lore, and don't do a great job explaining it as they go (as opposed to, say, Nick Spencer's current run on Spider-Man, which almost over-explains its own lore). That being said, if I just sit back and except the things I don't understand, more

"STARK REALITIES" continues with "THE IMPOSSIBLE ARMOR"!
Iron Man isn't a suit. It's an idea born from the mind of Tony Stark. And in a place where thought and reality are one and the same, a place where Tony's imagination is unchecked, what kind of terrifying, all-powerful Iron Man armor will be born?!

I've enjoyed all the tie-in stories in Hunted, but this one seems to have the potential for the largest impact on the main storyline.
