Iron Man #19 (Marvel)


Rating: 4.5/5 – The story of tomorrow…today!

This issue is setting up so many thing it’s hard to decide where to start…

A new corps joined the emotional spectrum!

Okay, okay, maybe not, but I really have to draw attention to the similarities between the villain(s?) in this issue and the Green Lantern Corps.  If you’ve read this issue, what do you think of this comparison?

The thing that really makes the villain in this issue stand out is the fact the he or she hasn’t been revealed yet and could be almost anyone who appeared in this issue; the anticipation and the dramatic effect on the story isn’t felt much when you read it but it gets you thinking about the potential scale and identities of the villain, because, as I said, it could be someone really close to Tony and he wouldn’t know it.

This issue features some Arno Stark in action. This guy, Tony’s step-brother, is a refreshing new addition to the Iron Man family and a good one at that. He’s kind of like Oracle to Batman, only a dude and… yeah, he’s essentially Oracle.  Jokes aside, I’m really interested in seeing where they go with this character and how his relationship with Tony will develop. We already saw them together in the future and they seemed pretty close. How will it happen? When will it happen? Hopefully we will get answers soon. But then again, nothing Is as it seems with this series.

But by far the most important thing that happened is Tony deciding what to do with Mandarin city. I’m looking forward to seeing how he deals with it. The art and the way the story is told is perfect. The art flows and we get to see Iron Man in his full glory. Iron Man is going to make some changes, we are going to see some big things in the near future.  You’d better start reading now or it will be too late. Personally, I’m sold.
