This issue is mainly character development and exposition, and I thought it was a very good read.  Fraction shows how honorable, dependable and extraordinarily loyal Tony Stark’s friends are.  From Maria Hill to Pepper Potts to Dmitri Bukharin, they’ve all got Tony’s back, and are interesting characters in their own right.  I love how Fraction gets small details right in an effort to create a greater impression of realism.  When writing about the French Canadian Northstar in “Uncanny X-Men,” Fraction references poutine, which is a dish that originated in Quebec.  When writing about the Black Widow in this issue, Fraction uses the feminine of her name, Natasha Romanova.  In Russia, the Black Widow would be Miss Romanova.  A man in her family would be Mr. Romanov.  Pepper Potts no longer works for SHIELD, so she has the real world problem of no health insurance.  Salvador Larroca mirrors the super realism of Fraction’s script in his art.  Pepper Potts and Natasha Romanova, both redheads, looks like different people.  The garment district in New York City kinda looks like the garment district.  I’m not sure where this storyline of Tony losing his intellect is leading, but getting there is interesting, and I hope the ending is worthy of the build-up.

  1. Nice review!

  2. In fact, VERY nice review!

  3. yeah, good work. I think Tony loosing his intellect means that they can stop him being some god like cyborg, which he was becoming, and be a more relatable hero. Its the classic ploy of building a hero up just to smash him down and reemed his failings.
