Tony safeguarding the Cuckoos photobook with Dr Strange despite Emma not wanting to be reminded at this point is cute. I’m loving the Tony and Emma interactions

The Avengers cameos with Tony testing out mysterium against their powers was good (especially showing that Tony and Peter ARE friends). I really like Duggan’s characterisation showing how competent, careful and smart Tony is more

Duggan’s Iron Man is one of the strongest in the Fall of X arc.

Feilong is such a bastard, I love it. Tony saying he’s gonna get demonic on his ass was great

I love how Tony and Emma can be vulnerable, open up & support to each other. Them making a blood pact in the hell that Orchis has constructed is really cool.

The covers and promos played up Emma’s role (fortunately), hoping it stays that way because this is a IM comic

Amazing Tigra solo issue.

It was a great character study about Tigra, the balance between being a mother and hero, living on instincts, her insecurities (i.e. trust), and her relationships with her child, Hank and Marc.

I like the rivalry between with Tony and Feilong. The pettiness e.g. Feilong’s calling Tony old and Tony saying he’s fatherless is making their dynamic fun.

Great first issue. I love the idea of Tony writing his autobiography. The first couple of pages is giving you a rundown of everything you need to know about Tony’s past. This narrative device makes you feel the weight of Tony’s history. He’s been through a ton of shit over his 60 years that isn’t acknowledged enough.
