Tony Stark Iron Man #4
This series follows the return of Tony Stark after he latterly recreated himself, which provides a fresh feel for existing and inviting for new Iron Man fans. This issue is all about romance and robotic ethics.
Thanks to the Sunset Brain’s dating app that begins to spread around Stark Unlimited like wildfire. Is it too good to be true? A week later, Tony is linking Jocosta’s brain to his own for the purpose to verify his reformatted brain still feels. After a Jocosta played with Tony’s brain a little, we learned that Jocosta’s brainwaves are pattened after a human counterpart, Janet Van Dye, aka The Wasp! Shortly afterward, Janet arrives and Jocasta recommends them to go out for lunch.
Elsewhere, Andy takes his new girlfriend out for a picnic. Bethany is still being a relationship downer as Tony introduces Janet to his biological mother, Amanda before heading out to lunch. Amanda observes that a lot of people are using this dating app and understands Bethany’s concern.
Yes, Tony and Janet’s lunch date may have been a bit overkill for some readers, but it charismatically flowed with great references of the past, such as; The Secret Invasion. Second chances are open and welcomed as these two Avenger founders reconnect. The lunch date is interrupted by Bethany, informing Tony that Stark Unlimited is under attack by killer robots. As Iron Man and Wasp enter, they see that everyone who was the perfect matches by this dating app are also the killer robots. Tony and Janet begin to kill the robots, Jocosta pleads them to stop. They are programmed like how a human can be brainwashed.
Andy observes that the robots have a hive-mind structure based through the dating app, which prompts an idea by Tony. He uses his wit and charm and manipulates the system that results in the app to shut down. Later, that evening, Tony enjoys a night in with Janet and has been stung by the Wasp!
Dan Slott has given fans a clear-cut issue in the Tony Stark Iron Man #4 that reintroduced us to Janet Van Dyne and the history that she shares with Tony. Slott also gets very inventive with Tony and his armor along with how the team deals with threats. They don’t just fight, they think about strategies. I really enjoy the once and done storylines in each issue thus far as the still connect to a larger story. The end of this comic gave us a carrot that intrigues the reader for the next issue.
Drawn by Valerio Schiti with color by Edgar Delgado, the art continues to have a grounded, appealing look that somehow contains all the creativity of the tech as it progresses. In each panel, Schiti and Delgado provide such details from the acts of romance to the fighting scenes that engage the reader’s interest as Slott continues the storyline.
Dan Slott and Valerio Schiti is providing a fresh and fun take on this favorite Marvel character. Each issue so far has been full of great ideas involving science, technology, and very strong statements.
