    This issue was perfection! I tried to find a single flaw or nitpick and I came up wanting. With some solid twists and turns, familiar characters, and incredible art, this team is firing on all cylinders. While I am predisposed to enjoy any title with Iron Man at the center, I can say without a doubt that you will be hard pressed to find a more enjoyable single issue of any comic. I know that I have been saying this before, but if you are not already reading this please don’t wait, start now!

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Juan Frigeri portrays Tony Stark’s reversal of fortune with imagery that celebrates Iron Man’s rich history in Invincible Iron Man #10. Scenes inside the Hellfire Club marry well with those in X-Men #26. Colorist Bryan Valenza helps prison scenes hum with drama and surprise with explosive action. Some favorite moments include seeing images of Howard Stark, Tony clad in his first Iron Man suit, and the rented red Ferrari parked outside the aptly-named Gamble Of Love wedding chapel.

    The Super Powered Fancast

    The Story: Duggan crafts an exciting and entertaining story filled with humor and action. I love the Emma Frost/Tony Stark dynamic and how they play off each other as well as how they work together. I love the deep dive into Feilong’s mind and the revelations about his past. I look forward to the next issue and what both characters have in mind for both their mission and their life together.

    The Art: Frigeri delivers some beautifully detailed and creative art throughout the issue. The visuals are exciting and compelling throughout.

    If you like surprises, you’ll probably love Invincible Iron Man #10. It plays out the wedding in a way you won’t see coming. Sure, the teasers and cover are misleading, but that’s comics, so sit back and enjoy a team-up that somehow works even when the characters are like oil and water.

    Surprising few, the highly anticipated nuptials between Iron Man and Emma Frost are nothing more than means to an end. Predictable in the fullest, Duggan’s script lays the exact stuff it needs to in order to get readers from Point A to Point B. Exposition is on the front burner throughout this entire issue, though there’s really no other way to get Tony Stark out of the hole he was dug into. Still, the tension created here is palpable and if we know this creative team, things are about to get real explosive, real fast.

    Invincible Iron Man #10 presents the much-advertised wedding between Tony and Emma in a story that extends their covert operation into new and somewhat amusing directions. The wedding is contrived as heck, but it makes sense for the story Duggan’s telling, and surprisingly, Emma and Tony make for an interesting couple. Marvel made a bigger deal out of the wedding than it deserves, but the story has potential for what Emma and Tony can do together.

    Comic Book Revolution

    Gerry Duggan and Juan Frigeri deliver on answering the “Why?” question around Tony Stark and Emma Frost sudden marriage. Invincible Iron Man #10 embraces how forced the marriage is to elevate the roles Tony and Emma are playing moving forward. Which in turn leads this issue to achieve the goal of the marketing around this X-Men and Iron Man crossover story within the greater Fall of X storyline.

    The more Marvel has revealed about the wedding between Tony and Emma, the more I’ve come around to it. Gerry Duggan completely leans into the sham that their nuptials are in this issue, with the two ending up in Las Vegas of all place to exchange vows. One of the better bait and switches Marvel has pulled on readers after initially teasing this as a monumental event. Aside from that, this issue’s plot didn’t exactly pass the smell test. Feilong showing up to their shotgun Vegas wedding as some sort of power move? I didn’t buy it. Sure he’s presented multiple examples of toxic masculinity to humiliate Tony, but he’s always done so in an extremely calculated and planned out way. I also don’t recall Emma every previously owning a necklace made of Mysterium. Yet she mysteriously has one when it ends up being the key to Tony’s next plan? Sure. If this ends up being a key cog in the plot that takes down Orchis, it will be frustrating that such a critical step happened outside an X-title even if it’s part of the Fall of X narrative.

    The anticipated wedding between Tony Stark and Emma Frost could have been amazing but in the end, it was just disappointing in more ways than one; I feel Marvel should really consider these “big events” to sell a series because after Tony gets done with his battle with the mutant-hating industrialist Feilong and his use of Iron Man technology to make his “Stark Sentinels”, I think divorce will be on the horizon for Tony and Emma. Thanks for another pointless event, Marvel!
