The Timeline Guy
- May 27, 2004
Well, not a great issue to be expected, but much better than any of the previous ones. It had a more tragic tone to it than the previous issues, and was a little less convoluted. Interesting to see that now Tony has an healing factor on par with Wolverine's...not. What the hell is that about? Wouldn't this healing factor play a role in fighting off the brain tumor...or is Card just ignoring that as well? Anyway, it was cool to see the Baxter Building, about the only redeeming factor of the issue. Also cool to see Obadiah as a homicidal little freak. Apparently Tony is becoming hard-core with his pledge to kill Obadiah if he harms Tony's father...Tony Stark, AVENGER!!! Anyway, this one gets a 1 out of 5. Would've gotten a 0 except for the Baxter Building. Kind of sad a landmark is the only good thing about the issue.
