November 20, 2013 - With friends like these.
Iron Man is a better comic.
At least they killed Amok, right? But this Unity story is dreck from beginning - almost until the end, here. This isn't the worst of these issues - but again, very little redeeming in this comic.
It got so far from the decent-ish parts at the beginning of the comic - to immerse itself in this end of the pool - and just wrecked itself.
This comic has the unfair burden of carrying most of the best will in the run in itself - and this one is junk.
Even the appearance of the goat is pretty stupid.
The old LMD. Again.
Truly, I think that any story with an LMD ought to have some kind of * associated with the reader - or an opportunity to recall or gain back full credit if really desired. These deus ex machina things are all too over used during this era. Got an idea? Well then KILL it.
Couldn't it have just been some OTHER guy - or Stark shows up when he's ABOUT to unmask? ANY way could have gotten around that.
But the wife of the Mandarin - that's a halfway decent story. I would like to see more of taht kind of stuff developed - and less of the LMD's. I'd LIKE to say there is a way around it - but sadly... The Seventies aren't around yet.
