    But Why Tho?

    Invincible Iron Man #2 is a great issue powered by the personality of its heroes. Iron Man and Ironheart in a comic together is a great combination, the mixture of confidence, experience, and a reverse student/teacher relationship brings an uneasy tension throughout the issue. Duggan has laced the series with mysteries and avenues for adventure, with glorious art from Frigeri and Valenza.

    Tony Stark’s fall from grace continues after the events of the last issue but even with Ironheart coming to his aid, he has to deal with the threat of The Living Laser (An Iron Man villain that I always felt never got his just due); The team-up between Tony and Riri gave this issue a great lighthearted feel to it but quickly went downhill once Tony found out what became of The Mandarin’s rings (**NO SPOILERS**- I mean, I myself was shocked when I saw then show up); Yes, Tony’s going through some hard times that makes Spider-Man look like Mr. Wonderful but thanks to the creative efforts of Gerry Duggan and Juan Frigeri, they manage to give the readers hop that nothing bad coming Tony’s way will stay that way but there always a chance he’ll come out on top. This new Iron Man series is still a great read that hits all the right notes of the character that some of us have all grown up with while giving new readers a series that feels like this is what “Iron Man 3” should have been.

    The Super Powered Fancast

    The Story: A fun, entertaining story that continues to craft a story for Stark that is intriguing. While I do enjoy the story, there are some elements of it that feel like a re-hash of other story lines. I like the inclusion of Riri in the story and really want to see that plot develop with the rings of the Mandarin. The issue closes with a great set of panels that actually make me intrigued to see what happens in the next issue. The Art: Frigeri delivers some great art in the issue. The battle with the Living Lazer is great and I love seeing Iron Man and Ironheart fight side by side.

    Pick up Invincible Iron Man #2 for the ongoing adventures of Tony Stark having a really bad time as someone attempts to ruin his credibility. Considering Iron Man is no longer rich, losing public opinion might be the worst of it...until you see that cliffhanger. Invincible Iron Man pays homage to the past while building up a mystery worth investing in.

    Comic Watch

    While making Tony’s life a living hell isn’t something new, the new team of Duggan and Frigeri are making it light with some fun dialogue and gorgeous art to look at. All signs point to a crossover with the X-Men book (that Duggan’s also writing), so this should prove to be interesting.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Invincible Iron Man #2 quickly puts more fuel on the fire for Tony, incorporates two new characters into the story, and provides little clues as to who might be behind all of this. However, the pacing is perfect, there is just enough action to keep fans interested, and the mystery is still involved enough to make Invincible Iron Man #2 worth the buy. Nevertheless, readers are going to need some type of clues soon or at least a stellar plot thread quickly to keep fans interested. Yes, the pacing is fine, however, readers will need something tangible soon or they may walk.

    Just two issues in and Gerry Duggan has already spun a masterful whodunnit as Tony Stark and Riri Williams have a quick team-up as they work to find who's impersonating Iron Man. The script breezes by incredibly quickly as a few share the spotlight, taking a step back from the dynamic and intense character work seen in the first issue. This time around, Duggan and Frigeri plant their feet into the weekly team-up firmly, which could do more harm than good for future issues. That said, we're not here to predict the future, so Invincible Iron Man #2 is an alright continuation of that incredible debut.

    Good, quality, well-rounded superhero comic, with an especially fun villain encounter in this issue.
