    Iron Cat continues to carry on the tradition of its forebearer Black Cat series bringing all the humor, heartfelt emotion, sass, heists, and action all wrapped up in gorgeous amazing artwork. There is no doubt that thanks to all the recent Black Cat stories, Felicia Hardy is a top-tier Marvel character at this point and not one to be reckoned with. Anyone that hasn't gone on the Black Cat journey needs to pick this and the past volumes up right away.

    Along with Felicia’s return, Jed MacKay returns as writer. This means that fans of the previous book will appreciate the humour and setups that McKay provides. Having a writer that is familiar with the character is a blessing; MacKay has worked the hardest to give Felicia a more prominent role in the Marvel universe, through a number of interactions without losing the charm that appealed in the first place. MacKay’s time away, working on the mystic side of Marvel has not diminished the fun quota. There is a bit of a MacKay trope in play, but when you having this much fun is that really a problem?

    Intense and vertiginous start of a new story.

    Thief and billionaire. Hero and anti-hero. MacKays mastery of the Marvel Universe is sharp enough that Black Cat could easily team up with a different hero for a different team-up series every year. The distinct match between Felicia and Tony is remarkably appealing. It will be interesting to see where he manages to take it in the months to come.

    Globe-trotting action and heartbreaking romance combine to make 'Iron Cat' a sterling example of good superhero storytelling. I can't wait to see where Felicia's latest chapter leads.

    Jed MacKay reunites with Felicia Hardy, the Black Cat, and true to form, we get an issue full of laugh out loud hijinks. MacKays pitch perfect voice for Hardy really shines through, mixed with an energetic staccato pattern for the action scenes, makes it feel like its going 0 to 60 in mere seconds. Add in Iron Man and its a sure fire hit. If this mini is half as good as the ongoings, were in for a real treat.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    As with many artists these days, the backgrounds arent drawn with the same amount of detail, and the scenes in the past, taking place in the city of Pershyy Misto, suffers for it a bit. I would have loved to see the city drawn in more detail, because it seemed like a location similar to Monoco, and more detail would have given the book a James Bond-type feel.

    Iron Cat gets off to a very fun start here in issue #1. In short, this series sees Black Cat and Iron Man coming together to go after a common enemy known as Iron Cat. This opening issue does a great job of quickly introducing all the major players in this story while also catching readers up on important aspects of previous Black Cat storylines. I'm curious to see what kind of legs Iron Cat has, but for now, I'm very excited to see how this series develops.

    I enjoyed Iron Cat #1. Felicia Hardy was just an antagonist (and love interest) to Spider-Man. Now she feels like a natural person with strengths and flaws.

    Comic Book Revolution

    Iron Cat #1 is just pure fun. Jed MacKay, Pere Perez, and Frank D'Armata did a great job using Felicia Hardy's past to create a new story that has immediate personal stakes when its revealed who Iron Cat is. If your looking for a fun superhero comic book don't miss out on reading Iron Cat.

    Along with the fun back-and-forth with Stark, and Black Cat running for her life, the issue builds on not one but two long-running recent storylines to kick off a fun new series that unexpectedly gives us a team-up of Iron Man and the Black Cat.
