Invincible Iron Man #33 review

Wow, I really enjoyed this one. Lately, I haven't been enjoying Matt Fraction's writing but i must say that this was an amazing way to finish off the stark resilient story line. This story basically fills in all the missing pieces of the previous issues and actually almost makes up for the long and dragged out story arc. I felt as if this issue showcased Fraction's ability of witty writing and humorous dialogue. The whole idea of the repulsor powered car was very interesting even though I felt as if there was to much focus towards it in the comics prior to this one. We are still missing development of detroit steel's character but at least we got to see him doing something useful. I still have a huge problem with the way Fraction is portraying Rhodey though, i feel as if i'm looking and listening to Don Cheadle every time i see Jim. I think Fraction didn't read much of the comics that Jim originated in, Fraction's version of Jim isn't the smart and funny version of Rhodey that he has always had. Rhodey has such a strong personality and i feel like its a crime to make him like Cheadle. The action in this story is great and the cliffhanger at the end of the story literally made me jump for joy. He brought the Mandarin back and it makes me the happiest guy ever. I'm very excited to see what he does with him. This is one of the best comics of the Invincible Iron Man series and you should really consider buying it.

Was this the issue in which Mandarin comes?

    With both War Machine and Rescue powered down and out of commission, Tony Stark gives Detroit Steel and his drones one hell of a race IN their would-be assassination. The Good Smartass superheroes are more the rule than the exception these days, but Fraction's Tony Stark ridicules his foes with such flippant panache, it feels like a much realer brand of showboating. Let me put it this way - - Stark turns an narrowly-repelled attempt on his life into a smug commercial for his new car. So much ...

    Tony races against time to save Pepper while simultaneously trying to save himself and the "Resilient" prototype from Detroit Steel and his fighter drones.   The Good Man, oh man, do I love this series, let me start by saying that if you're not reading this then I'm assuming you're either blind, dead, or stupid. I kid, I kid but seriously, if you're not reading Fraction's Iron Man you're a baby hating terrorist!!! Anyways, onto this issue, and what a stellar issue it is.   Oh so much to love abo...
