The Rundown: Tony Stark has some issues to deal with both with his company and with himself.
Tony is at a congressional hearing and those assembled want to know what happened with the escape launch and the deaths that resulted from it. In the course of the hearing, Tony continued to doubt whether of not he really is the real Tony Stark. A moment that sends the hearing into an uproar.
At the same time, Vision and Wonder Man are called to Avengers Mansion and ambushed by someone who has his sights set on not only the artificial Avengers, but Janet Van Dyne as well. Someone with a personal connection to Tony Stark.
The Story: Tony’s self-doubts are leading to some interesting and entertaining storytelling from Dan Slott and Jim Zub. They are putting Tony on another interesting journey of both discovery and self-destruction with his questioning of his own humanity, especially doing it publicly in front of a congressional hearing. The Jacosta subplot looks like it is going to be interesting as well and her reasons for going to Arno will be intriguing to discover as the story progresses. The lead in to the final reveal is handled beautifully and the story moves at a satisfying pace that leaves you wanting to read more.
The Art: Juana Ramirez and Francesco Manna deliver some great interior art in this issue. The characters look amazing and the action is great as well.
