Iron Cat #5 (of 5)

Comicscore Index
Generally favorable ratings

Based on 9 critic ratings.

Tony Stark’s legacy is being set on fire by Sunset Bain.

She’s corrupted all of his armor and everything he’s built since his very first weapon, and it’s all Black Cat’s fault.

Now, Iron Man and Felicia Hardy (in her own Iron Cat armor) are fighting for their lives against the Hulkbuster armor and every other Iron Man armor in existence.

This is not going to go well.

    ‘Iron Cat' brings the latest chapter of Felica Hardy's adventures to an end in a satisfying, trademark emotionally powerful way leaving the trio of main characters in some interesting positions as they move forward. A gorgeous, both visually and character development-wise, series through and through that keeps the winning streak going in proof that Felicia Hardy/Black Cat is a textbook Marvel-style character that has found and deserves to stay in the biggest of spotlights.

    Never being much of an Iron Man fan, I was unsure how much I would enjoy this book. For me, I would have preferred more Tamara and Felicia; with the inclusion of the Iron Cat armour Tony was bound to be involved. With the main crux of the story being the tension between the ladies, Tony should have been a modus operandi; instead, I sometimes felt that Black Cat was a guest star in her own book. Hopefully this balance will be redressed in the aforementioned Black Cat Mary Jane mini.

    Theres some insight into the psyche of Stark, but the bulk of this comic is a further exploration of the personality of Black Cat. Felicias relationship with MacKay continues to be a fruitful one. Writer and character have worked together a lot over the course of the past couple of years. MacKay has fostered a very conscious progression in Hardys life that has made her one of Marvels most consistently interesting characters in recent years. Next up: Black Cat hangs out with an actress in a series co-starring Mary Jane Watson.

    I was initially interested in this one as it was a different take on the Iron Man character and had someone else using the armour. From what I have seen from it I would recommend this one and the series you would like an original take on the Iron Man character.

    The ending is somewhat expected but the best thing is that Tamara escapes with Stark technology, which would be a problem in the future.

    As an entire miniseries, Iron Cat combines superheroics with the caper/thief feel very well. Iron Cat #5 safely wrapped up those story points but felt a little underwhelming as a single issue. With that in mind, this comic gets 3.5 out of 5 stars. Looking forward to seeing Iron Cat in future series.

    Iron Cat ends in a way that you are left excited and hopeful to see Jed MacKay run on Black Cat continues. MacKay added to Felicia Hardy's character by giving her a rival in Tamara Blake that gave a deeper personal arc for this entire series to tackle. If you are a Black Cat or Iron Man fan I recommend checking out this series when it releases in trade paperback form.

    The series offered some fun moments, especially in the first issue, and this is a fine conclusion, but some of the story certainly felt drawn out over the past couple of issues. The singular focus on an Iron Man story, rather than the more imaginative heights the creative team of Makay and Prez had given us previously, never reached the heights of the previous Black Cat volumes.

    I enjoyed Iron Cat as a whole, but it became far too predictable down the stretch. Perhaps that should be expected in some ways, although I felt like this predictability really undermined the main conflict that was set up within the first couple of issues. Rather than ending on a high note, Iron Cat merely closes out with no real surprises, which simply left me disappointed.
