Not as good as it thinks it is

Set up to be an epic tale, Armor Wars falls short. For one thing, there's little here beyond a series of iron-on-iron fights that Iron Man ultimately -- and often very easily -- wins. It grows tiresome fairly quickly. Also, one wonders -- if it's so easy for the hero to find and subdue these various armor-powered bad guys -- why he didn't do it sooner.

Besides, since Tony Stark in his civilian identity as a defense contractor sold the technology to the government, he actually does cross the line and become a crook when he takes it back, causing untold damage and injury in the process. Of course, you just know Stark is going to find a way to escape any kind of real penalty for his wrongs.

A lot of folks point to this episode as a thrilling climax in Iron Man's ongoing storyline, but it falls flat for me. The battles are monotonous, Stark's tortured inner monologue -- often recited ad nauseum to chum Jim Rhodes just so readers can be reminded every few pages why he's doing this -- is tedious, and the lack of any real consequence for his crimes is disappointing.
