This is considered one of the best Iron Man arcs for a very good reason. I'm glad I finally got around to reading this. ( )

Iron Man has evolved a lot over the past few years, and for the better, in my opinion. (As an interesting character, I mean - not necessarily, like, morally.) This storyline consequently comes across even more old-school than it was, although David Michelinie was yer quintessential Marvel hack. But all the stuff that makes this kind of not work - "They stole my technology? They used it for . . . . EVIL?!" - weirdly also kind of makes it work, in that you can ignore the cheesines, distill it down to bare facts, and add that nugget to your "Iron Man history" tumbler - although I choose to imagine it occurring a lot earlier than it did - early seventies? Iron Man's first step toward sophistication? Maybe if he hadn't been hitting the bottle so hard he would have noticed that they were stealing his tech? Works for me. So I guess now there's two registers in which to evaluate superhero comics (and, incidentally, soap operas): 1. Is this awesome? 2. Is it consequential? Does it develop the character, ir is it essentially without meaning? This book has more of 2 than 1. ( )
