This was very good. It really felt like what they were trying with Gillen but couldn't pull off.

I thought it was a really promising first issue. A bit goofy here and there, but the all the positive things outweight my complains. It's got a Tony Stark that is actively involved in his company, and Slott is making use of both established allies and enemies. It's been a while since we've had a true member of Tony's rogues gallery in an Iron Man book taking the spotlight, aside from Bendis using Madame Masque as the opening baddie. One aspect that really caught my attention is having Tony's company make a direct impact in his super-heroing, having a mission control and all of that. It's an interesting alternative to Tony bantering with an A.I.. Also, I have to mention how beautiful the artwork is. Valerio Schiti is one of my favorite pencilers.

While I was very skeptical about Dan Slott coming onboard as writer, I found myself enjoying the first issue.

The second issue was fun as well, with more footing since all major elements have already been introduced. It's good to see more surprises coming, like Friday getting her own robot body. I have mixed feelings regarding Rhodey. While I'm partially bummed he'll stop wearing the War Machine Armor (for the time being at least), I'm extremely happy he's getting some development, and things like coming back from the dead are actually affecting him. Plus, he'll be piloting a tank, so it's a good alternative to keep him fighting that'll bring new interesting situations to the table.

I don't mind the fact that Slott is pushing for the use of many armors, but I don't see the point of switching suits in between issues just because. The normal-sized armor from last issue and the suit he wore this time don't see to differ too much in functionality, so I don't see the point of using new suits for the sake of it. It looked cool, too, reminded me of the Iron Man Armor from Spider-Man: Homecoming.

The underlying plot keeps getting more interesting, and Slott keeps using Iron Man supporting characters and villains to their full extent so far. I'm still not convinced with Tony's overly-rash personality, but I can't complain considering all the other things that this book is doing great.

Gotta say, two issues in an this already has more promise than any of the runs that have come before it in the last 10 years or so.  Love see Slott bring back some classic villains and make reference to Shellhead's history.  I'm really looking forward to see where Slott will go.
