What are others thoughts on the current Iron Man run?
- Spoiler: show
I have found Cantwell's run to just be bizarre. When it started out it looked like he might take a more back-to-basics approach, but now just seven issues later things have gotten real weird lol. Tony has assembled one of the most oddball teams ever, to fight KORVAC of all people, has struck up a romance with Patsy Walker, and is now god-knows-where with a group of random characters (I don't recognize any of them, I think they are new). I can't imagine how any of this gets resolved because I don't even really know what is going on lol. But there is obviously a sort of intrigue in that confusion. It is another one of those situations where the deck seems totally stacked against Iron Man (who is literally broken inside his suit) and yet you feel he is somehow going to pull it off. With the help of Frog-Man of course.
It should also be noted that this issue contains a reference to the Patsy and Hedy special graduation issue that came out in 1964....
