Iron Man (2020-) #8 by Christopher Cantwell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Moondragon shows up and takes us on a roller coaster ride through Patsy Walker’s psyche in this Iron Man free issues of Iron Man.
And given that this issue contains exactly 0% Tony Stark and eff all Iron Man, it’s still pretty damn good. Although I do kinda’ have a soft spot for Hellcat, so maybe that explains it. It just fascinates me that despite being a fairly minor character she actually has one of the longest histories of all the characters in the Marvel Universe, outside of Captain America and the Sub-Mariner. She’s been around since the Golden Age. Seriously, look it up, she first appeared in 1944!
So, I appreciate it when stories draw on her history in Golden Age teen comics. And that’s exactly what this comic does.
Of course, it’s worth noting that we still don’t know where Tony is…and neither does he…but hopefully we’ll get back to him in the next issue.
