The Rundown: Tony Stark investigates the death of a friend and discovers who has taken over his company.
A friend of Tony Stark is dead and his connection to Stark began while Tony was fighting the Armor Wars alongside Rhodey. As Tony thinks back to the circumstances that convinced him to trust someone to be on the board of his company, he realizes that something is very wrong at Stark Unlimited.
Iron Man and War Machine travel to New York and break into Toy’s former business to discover the truth. What they discover is a secret lab holding something that could destroy Tony’s legacy and bring destruction to the world itself.
The Story: Duggan continues to craft an interesting mystery with some great twists throughout. I really enjoyed the call to the past with the Armor Wars and enjoyed seeing Tony and Rhodey working together. The industrial espionage angle is an interesting one and the reveal of who is behind it is also well done. The action is great and the story has me motivated enough to see where it goes next.
The Art: Frigeri offers some great art in the issue. The character designs are great and I really enjoyed the thrilling visuals in the action scenes.
