Good to see Tony make a appearance in his own book again.

Wasn't expecting to see Stilt Man. This is the first serious take on him where I've seen his face and I have to say, he doesn't fit the comedic relief type villain. I even considered it might be his predecessor. I like this reformed version but I bet he'll return to being a joke in another book.Learning about Ultimo's origin is c more

This ending was sorta underwhelming?

Writers making something their fault. Difference here is Thor is always cleaning up after Odin, its a tired troupe.

It took Patsy to the end to answer the question playing on my mind "where the hell is Tony?"

Art was beautiful as always. The colours used in Hellcat's high school felt vibrant and youthful.

This was pretty good, my gripe is Hellcat shouldn't have a entire issue focus on her. Pepper, Rhodey or even Halycon that's cool since they're his support cast. Not another superhero

I think I would like this comic a lot more if it was just Cafu's art without Cantwell's stupid dialogue. Why does Marvel hate Tony Stark so much and why do they always give the Iron Man book to writers who clearly hate the character? That said, I liked seing all of these vintage IM villains and I'm really glad War Machine is back. I can't stress enough how good the artwork is.

I like the grounded tone, but it always feels like Cantwell is more concerned with being smart and clever than telling a good story.
