I'm really only a fan of genre (particularly superheroes) when then the tropes are being subverted. Joe Casey claims (but its often just talk) that this is his MO when writing capes.Iron Man was one of my favorite characters (before his rise in popularity from the films). But I'm relatively cold to Robert Downey Jr's portrayal. The character should be constantly reinventing himself and innovative, but the character has been relatively stagnant for decades.It takes a writer perhaps, smarter than
I liked the bits about Stark believing that he is the inevitable future and his belief that he should be beyond superhero grudge matches. I found the psychologist/Living Laser bits unclear. She was trying to reach him in some even lamer version of an astral plane conversation, then he explodes into his Lasery self, goes after Iron Man, gets whipped easily, the end. Weirdly anti-climatic after four issues of building up the return of the Laser.The stuff with the Ghost and Spymaster was pretty dec...
Iron Man has always been my favorite Marvel character, but it had been a while since I read a really impressive Iron Man story. Then Warren Ellis and Adi Granov delivered their amazing Iron Man Vol. 1: Extremis story arc, which totally reignited my interest in the character. Coming hot on the heels of Extremis is Joe Casey and Frazer Irving's Iron Man: the Inevitable. How does it measure up? Read on.With Inevitable, Casey brings back some of the better characters from Iron Man's rogues gallery,
I've been an Iron Man fan since I was 6; my first ever comic book was Iron Man 250, in 1989. I've read all the classic runs, and most of the not-so-classic runs. And yet, in all that time, Iron Man: The Inevitable is the only Iron Man story that has made me say, "Damn, I wish I'd written that myself."
Los guiones de Joe Casey me suelen parecer muy interesantes. Los dibujos de Frazer Irving, completamente macabros y cautivantes. Pero no hubo muy buena química en este tomo y me aburrió de principio a fin. Hay un par de ideas interesantes y un par de escenas bastante bien plasmadas, pero muy poco más. Supongo que sólo se lo recomendaría a los completistas de los autores o del personaje.
frazer irving's art emits light like tony stark's iron hands emit pulsar rays.
Decent little Iron Man story with good art. Nothing too spectacular though.
One of my favorite Marvel mini-series in years. Conjures up a lot of old-school shellhead vibes with just a splash of Richard Corben.
art sucked, but story was ok.
