The Rundown: Tony Stark finds himself trapped in his sentinel buster and the prison of his own mind.

Trapped in the sentinel buster, Tony Stark awakens to receive visions of the people from his past including his dead mother and father who give him ominous warnings about himself and his future. At the same time, he faces demons from his past in the form of former villains with a direct connection to him and his life’s work.

After awakening, he finds himself staring down Feilong who wants to finally end him. Unfortunately, Tony and Feilong discover too late that all of them have been used by a bigger threat and it will take an unexpected ally to finally rescue Iron Man.

The Story: Duggan crafts an entertaining story in this issue. The internal struggles of Tony Stark continue to be interesting and are used sparingly enough to not overpower the narrative. The battle with Feilong was well done and the reveal of the bigger plot is placed brilliantly within the story. I also really enjoyed the reveal towards the end of the story and what it means for Tony in his battle against Orchis.

The Art: Zircher delivers some beautifully detailed and richly emotional art in the issue. The nightmare sequence was visually immersive and engaging.
