What’s the connection between an aging comic book artist and Rorschach? That’s the question the detective investigating the attempted assassination of a presidential candidate must answer. Wil Myerson, a reclusive artist known for his pirate comics, went from drawing the adventures of Pontius Pirate and the Citizen to working with a mysterious ...

Is it me or was this kinda... anticlimactic? After all the hype and issues building up to the duels we get:

- a super-short battle where Betsy loses for some unknown reason
- a wedding (Excalibur)
- arm wrestling
- a drink off
- another short fight battle between Wolverine vs Summoner (and his momma).

Man, Tony is really being put through his paces in this run.

I like the idea of Tony questioning why he’s a superhero in a world that doesn’t want his help.

Every time he tries to do the right thing it ends up blowing up in his face and in this issue we see him reaching his breaking point.

We get an exchange between Patsy and Tony which gives some detail as to more

Iron Man #3

Tony Stark is getting tired of apologizing for being himself, especially when as Iron Man he's more powerful than most any other human being on Earth. As he wears himself out trying to do everything he can to be a force of good in the world, he's beginning to chafe at the idea that he really owes anybody anything. Is it too much to ask for a thank ...

Let me start by saying: Ghost Maker has one of the coolest designs for a villain that I’ve seen in a long time and his characterisation is pretty good.

However, did Tynion forgot about Nobody?

The whole Thor/Donald Blake dynamic has always been weird to me.

Odin casting Thor to Earth to humble himself from being a arrogant battle loving warrior and becoming a humble kind doctor who saved lives was more compelling than the shadow retcon.
