Since the new vol. comes out tomorrow, I felt like this should be created. Just hope I'm not alone here, since this forum is so dead. LOL

Anyways, feel free to post. :)

So who here read the new issue today? What did you think?

@oldwasher: I did. I thought it was pretty good. It should be interesting to see what his new armor can truly do since it has all modes merged together and can change shape and color.

It was also interesting to see Stark dating someone (especially someone that is a super-genius). I have a feeling there is going to be some major foreshadowing with that "cure" to the mutant gene that she came up with. Should be interesting.

I was really confused by the ending with Doom, but I guess no one is going to understand that until Secret Wars is over.

I did too, and honestly, it was a weak issue for me. Not necessarily bad, just.... weak. Maybe it was all the hype. But since this is Bendis, I'll have to wait and see the whole arc before coming to a conclusion.

But damn, David Marquez's art is sooooo good, man.

@noone301994@oldwasher Did you guys see the previews for issues 2 and 3?

@oldwasher: Lol sorry for spoiling. I was under the impression that you had already read it...

@amazingfantasy: No I hadn't seen the previews. Were there any? I also liked the art a lot. The issue did seem a little uneventful, but it definitely got me hooked. I can't wait to see how it progresses.

Edit: I just saw the links you posted. Well, sh!t. That sort of killed it for me. Iron Man's power levels don't seem impressive at all. In one scan he can't even dent Doom's shields (without armor apparently?) and his suit gets atomized by some featless energy source. It's cool that it reforms on its own, but it shouldn't be that weak in the first place. I had a feeling Bendis was going to make Stark weak... Smh...

@noone301994: Well, it's Bendis, powerlvls aren't really his thing lol.

However (IIM1 spoilers), that's Dr Doom, so the Hulkbuster failing to destroy the forcefield isn't that bad.
Also Madame Masque might have gotten an upgrade there, so who knows.

But I'd say that on paper It's still impressive that Stark can change into any armor he wants (Except probably like, Thorbuster, Phoenixbuster and stuff), and it seems he can instantly rebuild it like it was with bleeding edge.

Ya know I reeeeeeally hope we see more of this lady. Bendis said she is at least as smart as Stark or even more, so...

I mean, Stark is like, the 3rd smartest person on earth. She needs to show wazzup.

Of course, we're still on issue 1, and it's Bendis so things likely will be slow, but just saying.

Btw *spoilers*, mutant "cure"? Sounds like crossover material... :p Or just another way for Marvel to screw with the x-men even more

Personally I thought it was much more fun than the first one! I like what I'm seeing so far, keep it up Bendis.

Sooo now we'll have yet another Iron Man comic
yaaaay

i hope bendis keeps up the quality

tho i'd prefer if it was someone else writing, and it's not even 'cause i don't like bendis' work much, it would be interesting to what work other available writers could do
i'd love to see what someone like waid, yost, PAD or even fraction again would do with tony

Other than that, nothing much...

@amazingfantasy: Unfortunately, apparently Stark was getting his a$$ kicked before he blasted Fixit with his uni-beam so that doesn't really put his durability very high...

@noone301994: Yeah, guess you're right. Tho if he can one shot him, how the hell did the fight got to that point in the first place?

However, I wonder if changing to Hulkbuster for example adds durability (why didn't he do that? :p)

@amazingfantasy: Yeah who knows LOL. It was probably just some stupid way of making the fight look or seem even. Based on feats, Iron Man should stomp him anyway.

Today's issue was pretty good imo! :D

Tho I don't see why Tony would fall for that lady so fast, and say it out loud.... To her. Dunno, doesn't seems like Tony, and it also feels a little forced.
I did like the dialogue, and this issue had some funny moments again. LOL
*obligatory Marquez compliment* I also think the book needs more action.

I definitely agree.

Not that I was expecting much, but Imo the first arc of IIM was okay. Marquez art might have helped. The following issues, tho...
International Iron Man is even worse, boring as hell.

So much for two Iron Man books and Tony being the new flagship... This had so much potential.

As it usually is with current marvel, they don't make us actually care for the characters.
Only using stunts (hey there MJ) and overexposing Tony won't make people love him or buy his book.

Just read CW II #2.

So far this event feels more like an Iron Man solo. Tbh I'm not enjoying it all, but Tony does have an awesome moment at the beginning of the issue.

But he's also acting way too much on emotion and even tortured Ulysses. I don't like that.

@amazingfantasy: I personally like it so far. I think it's a good way to make the group get split down the middle. I didn't like how easily Medusa's freaking hair breached Iron Man's armor though.. I'm very interested to see what happens with the Hulk... Not sure how he got so freaking big. You think that Banner is going to turn back into the Hulk?

@amazingfantasy: Interesting.

You think that Banner is going to turn back into the Hulk?

I don't think so. Not yet. But probably they are going to write something where either Tony will look stupid compare to Banner or Cho would destroy all of his team like always.

@noone1996: Well I don't know how tough Medusa is supposed to be so Idk.
I think he'll be back only for a brief moment, not regularly. It's also likely that Bruce will die, IIRC it was said that in CW II #3 that someone will die. Have you been following the solicits? Seems Amadeus Cho will lose someone close to him... Might all be misdirection, but who knows.

I think this disaster will initiate the whole mess. Currently, it's mostly personal to Tony and contained between him and Carol's team. This incident will expand the event to the whole MU.

@krleavenger: Hahaha wouldn't be surprised. The writers really do love Banner don't they? You know what, I hope they do kill him. The funny thing about Hulk fanboys is that they say he doesn't have such extraordinary feats of intelligence because the Hulk always held him back. Well, he's not the Hulk anymore so what's the excuse now? xDD

@amazingfantasy: That's true and some good theories. Even if Medusa was at Sentry's level, she still shouldn't have been able to breach his armor so effortlessly in my opinion. His suit is supposed to be airtight too, so it's not like her freaking hairs would be thin enough to fit through the seams and cracks of the armor. This holds especially true when Tony pointed out that there were none a page later. Either way, I do agree that something really big is going to happen and I personally think whatever happens will make people start to sympathize with Tony and his suspicions of Ulysses's powers. I think they'll see that the Hulk really wasn't going to kill them (like they were shown) and people are going to start to doubt and question how reliable he is.

@noone1996: Indeed. I hope when Banner becomes the Hulk again and when Thor gets back his hammer that they kill each other.

@amazingfantasy: Well Iron-man was holding his own against characters like Thor, Hulk, Hercules and Sentry and defeated characters like Namor and Red Hulk (for Rulk not really). So no reason not to give Hyperion a decent fight.

@amazingfantasy: Oh sweet. Yeah, he has no chance, but hopefully he'll at least hold his own and it'll be a good fight. In the Amazing Spider-Man #14 he actually tanks Hyperion's eye beams from Regent, a guy who can copy/steal powers:

When does Hyperion #6 come out anyway?
