Invincible Iron Man #5

Invincible Iron Man #5
Written by Matt Fraction and illustrated by Salvador Larroca
Published by Marvel Comics

In this comic Iron Man is hunting down Stane, who is the son of the bad guy Iron Monger in the Iron Man movie. Stane is blowing up a lot of buildings and killing innocent people so Iron Man has to stop him before he hurts anyone else.

A lot of the beginning is mostly talking and Iron Man and his friends have to try and figure out which building is going to be attacked next. It’s pretty slow in the first half because they’re all just looking for Stane and not doing a good job of finding him.

When a big building blows up the story starts to get better. Stane has his own armor but it’s different from what his dad wore and what Iron Man wore. It’s kinda good. I like Iron Man’s costume better.

The battle between Iron Man and Stane was great. They do a lot of hard punching and other moves. Stane shoots Iron Man through a wall and Iron Man does the same thing to him. They keep pounding each other into walls and getting their armor more wrecked. I thought it was great when Iron Man used his boot jets to shoot Stane and it made him go flying. But even that blast didn’t really hurt Stane because his armor is very strong. Stane is a good bad guy for Iron Man because his armor is just as strong and it makes it hard for Iron Man to beat him. Iron Man even says that Stane’s blasts feel like a train is hitting him.

The end was wild with Stane shooting Iron Man in the head and there is no head on the Iron Man armor anymore. Stane thinks he killed Iron Man but I don’t think he did. I think there’s a trick or something and that it was a different person in the Iron Man suit.

I liked the art in the book. The armor looks pretty cool on Iron Man and Stane. There are some really cool pictures of Iron Man flying and battling. I like how the artist draws buildings and stuff. It all looks like it’s from the future. I also really like how the artist puts a lot of drawings on the page, too. There’s a lot of detail in it that I like.

It was a good book, but I wish there was a lot more action of Iron Man in it.

My Rating: 7 out of 10

i agree about iron man's head being gone. it's not a very good cliff hanger for the next issue. it's not like they're going to kill off tony stark in issue #5 of a series and i doubt marvel comics would let iron be killed off at all with the whole movie tie in.

great blog by the way. i found a link to it on the cbr website. keep up the good work.
