Review: Invincible Iron Man #1

Invincible Iron Man #1

When life gives you lemons, what does one do? When you have hit rock bottom, how much lower can you go? These are the questions that one hopes they never have to answer. This is when we all wonder how much more can life throw at us, and if we can keep standing.

I think most of us feel like we get have been there, but someohow some way, fate has different plans. This is why our will to fight is important especially when things don’t go our way. It is that will that tries us  time and time again and allows us to rise to the occasion. In Invincible Iron Man #1, we find Tony Stark in the fight of his life.

As Invincible Iron Man #1 opens, we find Tony Stark at his lowest. He has lost his company, his fortune, and has become a shadow of his former self.  Then one day everything gets even worse, as an explosion of his apartment building , levels it and kills and injures innocent individuals that just so happen to be Tony’s neighbors. This just puts more pressure on Tony as the little fortune he still has sees more strain in the aftermath. Who blew up the building? Was it a mistake he made or is someone out to get him? The issue builds the paranoia well keeping readers guessing until the last third when things are teased as to what’s going to come. But, even that leaves Tony with more questions than answers.

Overall, Invincible Iron Man #1 is a fun debut issue which gives a fresh remix to this very familiar character. The story by Duggan is exhilarating. The art by the creative team is remarkable. Altogether, a story that will have readers find their excitement for this character renewed.
