    One thought on “Invincible Iron Man, Volume 1: Reboot”

    1. Loved it!This is about as close to perfection as an Iron Man story gets, in my humble opinion. First, the art. It. Is. Fantastic.Just look at the facial expressions. They're soexpressive! And since this is a graphic medium, I personally get more out of it when part of the story is told visually.I know a lot of people think Bendis' writing is too slick or gimmicky, but I usually enjoy his stuff. I like fun comics, and he's one of the best at delivering that sort of thing. He writes characters/plo [...]

    2. My pappy used to say that you can’t make a silk purse from a bull’s nut sack, yet Marvel is constantly trying to re-invent their characters – looking for excuses to do some renovating and overhauling, searching for the magic. Take Iron Man, I have this theory that Marvel deliberately created the whole Secret Wars thing just to re-boot that dreadful Superior Iron Man storyline. Stark has always been about his ego on thrusters. Who can forget Tony Stark at his most annoying during the Civil [...]

    3. Tony Stark is concerned he hasn't been spending enough time in the lab. He's supposed to be the cutting edge for technology, but his Iron Man suit is behind the times. So Tony made a new, all in one suit. Meanwhile Madame Masque is playing a dangerous game in Latveria that Tony is determined to stop. He receives help from the most unexpected of individuals.Reboot was really good. Brian Michael Bendis's Tony Stark is more akin to the film version of Tony played by Robert Downey Jr. The brilliance [...]

    4. Madame Masque/Whitney Frost is stealing powerful magical relics from around the world - but why? Iron Man/Tony Stark must team up with an unlikely partner in the post-Secret Wars Doctor Doom (who looks VERY different now!) to stop her - in a swish new armour of course! Woah - a GOOD Iron Man book! These are rare, guys. After a few years of Kieron Gillen’s extremely low-quality Iron Man run and Tom Taylor’s incorrectly-named Superior Iron Man, it’s taken Marvel’s top writer Brian Michael [...]

    5. I really enjoyed this one. It's such a breath of fresh air to have a heroic Tony Stark back again after what seems like years of Marvel trying to make him the douchiest of douchebags.I also like the new armour Actually, the artwork in general was fantastic. Here's hoping David Marquez stays on the book for a good, long run. (Who am I kidding? We all know by now that they'll be relaunching this book with a new number one in six to twelve months' time, to coincide with some brain dead 'event')I lo [...]

    6. This is the best iron man volume I've read. However, I've only read the fraction run. I was a massive fan of Bendis when he did Alias and Daredevil, both incredible runs, but after that it felt like he sold his soul to marvel and everything he banged out for them just came nowhere close to his original stuff. This again doesn't have his original dark and stormy trademark, but it's definitely an improvement. Maybe Bendis is just good with singular characters. I'm interested in this run, the new a [...]

    7. So we're now officially pretending that Superior Iron Man never happened? And Arlo wasn't mentioned once, so are we also pretending that he never happened? I don't know. Annoying? A bit, yes. Why bother with the Superior Iron Man stuff if it was going to be entirely forgotten soon anyways?The bright side is that this is actually one of the better Iron Man books I've ever read. I don't know what Tony's history with Madame Masque is, but it seems like she was someone that he hates having to fight. [...]

    8. I've been wanting to get more into Marvel comics since I mostly focus on DC and feel like I've been missing alot so I decided to start with the new Invincible Iron Man and it looks like I have another series that I'll be following now.So what exactly have I been missing out on? For starters, moonlight ninja fight beach parties! Seriously, that was pretty cool. There's also more lighthearted moments than I expected. Eight frames of Tony trying to get a high-5 from Dr. Strange is funnier than it s [...]

    9. Wellis was fun. Yeah, that's a good way to put it. Do you want a fun Tony that you got from Iron-man 1-3? Here it is. You even get some good interaction with him doubting himself, or scared, and to me that's always the most interesting side of Tony. Also, Doctor Doom is creepy as fuck in here. Oh and the "Bearded Bro" moments got me. I did have fun reading most of this tbh, and if you like Tony at all I'm sure you'll enjoy it too. The main plot is silly, dumb, but it works to give our characters [...]

    10. Brian Michael Bendis has come to put his stamp on Iron Man. I liked the opening story with Madame Masque. I wish however we were given more details on what she was actually doing. I liked the twist with Victor Von Doom and would love to see him make similar kinds of appearances throughout the Marvel U. Iron Man and Dr. Strange need a team-up book. Their interactions were so much fun. The introduction of Mary Jane as a supporting character has a lot of potential. I feel she has outlived her usefu [...]

    11. Solid Iron Man entry from journeyman writer Bendis. Don't care much for Iron Man's new makeover armor but that my only real complaint. The post-Secret Wars titles are in my head Marvel-blenderied. It's the previous Marvel thrown into a blender set on high-speed. The new titles and the characters that populate them are just whatever the oddball combinations the blender frapped together regardless of any sort of sense. Here we get Doctor Doom as a handsome reformed hero want-to-be and Mary Jane Wa [...]

    12. Alright everybody, hop aboard yet another reboot express ! Invincible Iron Man is part of the Marvel Now ! series and gives Tony Stark an opportunity to bring up his armour and technology around it to more up-to-date standards. I’ll go one-by-one with the things I liked and the one thing I didn’t : Like #1 : The Armor –Sleeker and much more refined a version of the earlier armours. Of late while the Superior Iron Man version has been a little too flashy, this version of the suit is compact [...]

    13. I think I'm just not a big fan of standard iron man stuff. Love the suit and tech stuff but Tony just annoys me and when writers play into that side it's tunes me out. I suppose i always knew that but I give it a go every once in awhile. Invincible iron introduces a new suit and I think the tech of iron man is my biggest interest. The new suit is pretty cool, it can morph into any of his suits if i understand it right. The story is straightforward, Madam Masque is hunting down powerful relics fo [...]

    14. While Bendis perfectly nails the voice and character of Tony Stark, which is no surprise, the plot in this book is very meh. Whitney Frost, aka Madam Masque, steals some magic doohickey and basically gets superpowers. Then they fight and then fight some more. Also, there is Doctor Doom, who is now friendly and handsome, and Doctor Strange, whose cameos in this book are probably the best thing about it.All in all, it is enjoyable to read thanks to Bendis's trademark snappy dialogue and humour, an [...]

    15. After reading a few of his Secret Wars tie-ins, I had decided to swear off Brian Michael Bendis entirely, writing him off as a lost cause. Where he had once been a hugely talented indie comic book writer, and gave me a reason to become obsessed with Daredevil and Ultimate Spider-Man, his tenure with Marvel had devolved into sheer tedium of late and it felt like he was spinning his wheels, waiting for his contract to expire. I think he had gotten bored, and his schtick was certainly starting to b [...]

    16. "I don't care if Thanos is marrying Pepper in Times Square and Justin Hammer is giving the bride away." Iron Man needs to pick up the pieces of his life again. (Jesus, Tony, stop dropping shit everywhere you have no excuse, Mr. AIs-Abound.) Iron Man teams up with the unlikely turned-over-a-new-leaf Victor von Doom in this thing to defeat Madame Masque who keeps stealing shit that doesn't belong to her. Also, Doctor Stranger-Danger appears magically in this story, too. Tech can't fight magic? My [...]

    17. A pretty good Iron Man book. I think most of Bendis' detractors would agree he has more trouble with epic crossover books and does a pretty good job on single-character stuff. Maybe they wouldn't. I like most of his stuff, so fuck if I know.Art is also pretty snazzy. I almost said "on point" and then thought "that doesn't sound like me." So I guess what sounds like me is a super old fuddy duddy, as evidenced by the use of "fuddy duddy."I'm hoping to write a longer column about this in the near f [...]

    18. Bendis seems to do well with singular characters, at least at the beginning. I've read this before (just needed a refresher before I finish the last 2 issues) so I know where this is heading. It's great to see Tony being the hero we all know and love with little-to-no self-destructive behavior right now. I've decided to pretend Superior Iron Man never happened.I've seen many reviews saying that Tony's characterization in this run reminds them a lot of RDJ. As they are, essentially, the same pers [...]

    19. "I've decided to enjoy this . . . It's a moonlight ninja fight beach party!"4.5 stars -- oh (Iron) man, this was just a whole lotta fun. After a couple of satisfactory but sort of cheerless Superman books in the last week it was entertaining to read something more high-spirited and cinematic. Tony's dialogue sounds like it was ripped directly from an unproduced screenplay for another Downey go-round of the character. Plus, he receives nice assistance from Dr. Strange, Mary Jane Watson, and Dr. D [...]

    20. I'm sorry, but I don't think Bendis is the man for Iron Man. He's better at the dark and brooding, the Daredevils, Moon Knights, Jessica Joneses. The humor throughout was far too cutesy for my tastes. The artwork is good, but I don't care for the layouts of David Marquez--you can't follow the story clearly. Sometimes it moves across the page, sometimes not. And this has been a hallmark of his (or maybe it's Bendis who does this) across the titles I've read. Story is okay, but I can't help but fe [...]

    21. I really enjoyed this book. Tony's new suit is awesome - OP, probably, but since we're ramping up for Civil War II it makes sense for him to get some upgrades. Dr. Doom and Doctor Strange are both great. Friday was extremely well-written; she has perhaps the strongest personality of any character other than Tony.My favorite part, though, was the potential love interest. I really hope we see her again!

    22. I think that Bendis has always been at his best on solo books, where he can really delve into a character. And, that's the case here, with a great look at a Tony Stark who is simultaneously charming, arrogant, and overwhelmed. We also get a shockingly charming Dr. Doom, apparently back from the Secret Wars and turning over a new leaf. He's perhaps too close of an analogue to Stark (but with mystical powers). Still, it's interesting to see this new twist on the old character, and makes me look fo [...]

    23. Bendis is one of those writers who when I love his work I absolutely adore it and when it doesn't work for me I completely loath it. Fortunately this book falls into the former category with Bendis pretty much knocking it out of the park. His trademark dialogue style is pitch perfect for Tony Stark, so much so that I can practically hear Robert Downey Jr's voice as I'm reading. The supporting cast is great throughout from a newly healed (and surprisingly handsome) Doctor Doom, facial hair bro Do [...]

    24. No great surprises in the intro, really. Stark is self-pitying, working on a new suit, trying to get into a lady's panties, and has an international crisis only he can deal with. Check, check and check.And thenVictor shows up, as a *good* guy. NOW I'm intrigued. Doom is one of the most layered villains in all of Marvel - both a total hero to the people of Latveria and a complete despot to the rest of the world, he always walks the line between selfless and pitiless, wanting to be left alone to p [...]

    25. Turns out that once you get Bendis off the team books and back on solo superheroes, his old magic returns. Yeah, I have quibbles (isn't Tony's armour a bit too good at dealing with magic?) but this has the snappy, often genuinely funny quickfire exchanges which first got me into his work, it has a plot where stuff actually happens and does so in a manner which makes sense, it has mysteries but nicely defined ones which get sensible resolutions is, in short, quite good. Thank heavens. Lovely Marq [...]

    26. A great story with some surprising directions for Doctor Doom and Mary Jane Watson (who was a pleasant surprise to see, as it is so rare to see her outside of a SPIDER-MAN title). If this had audio I could fully imagine Robert Downey, Jr. reading Tony Stark's dialog. Bendis captures Downey's take on the character perfectly.

    27. Absolutely terrific art, paired with a compelling story that shows how much farther the development of Stark could go in the films. The humour is top-notch, and the visuals are dynamic and propulsive. Really big fan of this one.

    28. Un nuevo "reboot" de Marvel para poder entrar de lleno en las nueva historias de sus personajes. En este caso, estamos con Tony Stark que tiene que asumir un par de preceptos nuevos del pasado y que se tendrá que enfrentar a una de sus peores enemigas.

    29. My only problem with this comic was that there was too much dialogue. It wasn't bad dialogue, but sometimes I got slightly bored with the long speeches. Otherwise this was great and I'd love to read more.
