Early Review: Iron Man Director of SHIELD #33

Iron Man Director of SHIELD #33

I'm reading this again after some time off


I used to really like Iron Man.  Civil War made it hard to like Iron Man.  Tony being in charge of S.H.I.E.L.D. seemed to take him out of the action.  Too many times he'd be standing around in his armor (looking silly with the helmet off). 

Because of the Skrull attack, Tony needs to reinvent his armor.  The call is put out to War Machine to take his place to fight the Skrulls.  I'm not a huge War Machine fan but I do like him.  His armor's color scheme and heavy weapons makes him seem tougher.  I have always wondered why his armor and Tony's were different.  If War Machine has more fire-power, you'd think Tony would want more too.  If Tony's has more hidden or streamlined fire-power, you'd think he'd add the upgrades to Rhodey's armor too.

Tony, being the smart guy he is, did have a contingency plan in place.  He leaves a little something for Rhodey, which is pretty cool.

I've missed out on a little of Rhodey's past events.  I know he was with O.N.E. and then with the Initiative.  I have no idea what happened to his face.  We don't get an explanation here but it seems like it will be coming. 

Overall a pretty good issue.  I'm borderline between a 3.5 and a 4.  I'll give it a 4 out of 5 just because Rhodey's so cool.  I'm glad this title will be morphing into War Machine: Weapon of S.H.I.E.L.D.
