The Invincible Iron Man 18 (November 2009)


Okay, I was off… Pepper hid Madame Masque in the Crimson Dynamo armor, which means she wasn’t exactly worried about her dying in the explosion.

I think Fraction was trying to make Black Widow funny in her appearances this issue–she disappears while at H.A.M.M.E.R. (don’t hurt ‘em) but I imagine she’ll be okay. Incidentally, the humor fails. He doesn’t explain enough to make it funny.

Tony ends up in Afghanistan again this issue–for his completely modified origin (I would have thought first Gulf War made more sense as a place for him to create the Iron Man armor, but I guess they’re really keen to fit the movie). He has a drawn out scene with some armed kids. He punches one.

He’s smarter this issue than last, which doesn’t make sense.

Pepper is Luke Skywalker at the end, she’s there to rescue Maria.

Fraction really likes Star Wars.
