Scott Lang takes care of the action chores in this issue, which is mostly about Tony Stark.
The Government is suing him for the damages he caused at The Vault. I appreciate Mrs. Abrogast’s loyalty to her boss, but let’s be real: He caused a prison break and killed a foreign national during Iron Wars. There should be consequences.
His self-pity is ridiculous.
Ted Cord is messing with Stark International’s latest project roll-out, trying to press his public relations advantage post-Iron Wars, and that’s where Ant Man comes in to fight some industrial saboteurs.
I think Dave Michelinie and Bob Layton “get” Iron Man more than anyone. I love how he’s so narcissistic that he can’t even understand why the world might look poorly on a guy whose employee just went on a mad tear across the planet, blowing up everyone in armor he could find.
Also: New corner box.
