Invincible Iron Man - #4 - Marvel
Written By: Brian Michael Bendis
Art By: David Marquez and Justin Ponsor
Iron Man is battling a group of ninja’s who have unrecognizable tech and lethal intentions. The battle rages on at Marina Del Ray California at night on the beach. Iron Man eventually figures out the appropriate measures to solve this conflict but it ends with a surprising twist. A short while later, Tony is visiting the children’s hospital when a surprise visit from Doctor Doom interrupts the event. The two are off to Chicago to stop Madam Masque when we see the night club they arrive at is owned by one well known Marvel sweetheart.
The high tech ninja’s fighting Iron Man with Light Saber looking weapons was fantastic. Additionally, the art showing off the light weapons, the camouflage Iron Man armor and the explosions looked amazing in this issue. The yellows and blues present in the fight scene are mesmerizing. I wonder if it was possible to enjoy the art any more in this issue.
The dialogue in this issue was entertaining at parts. After the battle on the beach the local authorities arrive to investigate the explosions and fires. The back and forth with Iron Man, the rookie cop and the veteran cop was amusing and gave me a chuckle or two.
Overall, this issue had some magnificent art to begin the issue. However, this issue felt like a segue issue that was leading into the next one. Instead of being a great issue on it’s own, this one felt like it will be better once I read the fifth issue. I’m still enjoying this new Iron Man series.
