Another example of Marvel offensive views towards to disabilities.
This is as bad as marvel obsession with "curing" professor x

If you have a disability you shouldn't be recognised as equal the everyone else,you have a flaw and that needs to resolved by curing you. Bad writers resort to gimmicks like curing disabilities instead of embracing them.

The iron man I grew up with (the man who's life was of alcoholic, he has great days but then his life thrown into the gutter) hasn't existed since Matt Fraction Run, (Every other marvel writer suddenly turned tony stark in Robert Downey Jr after the god awful Iron man 2).


However, I really enjoyed this issue for the simple fact both Tony and Pepper had some degree of personality which they completely lacked under Kieron Gillen run. Gillen spent more time introducing the comic book version of Helen Lewis, bring back death head,ruining the mandarin, repeating the extremsis era stories and de-valuing stark family history, then he did exploring the core characters Tony and Pepper. so in final when pepper is held hostage by her boyfriend it had zero impact.

Here they had some personality and conflict between them which interesting. Not a fan of whole AXIS thing and I'm not sure I would like tony stark to stay this way as much like the superior spider-man this gimmick is gonna ware thin after a few issues. Additionally the new armor continues to be a step down from the bleeding edge designs. But for the first time in MARVELNOW! era I'm excited to read the next issue of an Iron-man book

Imagine if marvel really cared equality....

Wow Good and Evil are apparently black and white.... are we sure this by the real Rick Remender?
How was Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder unable to notice this as the most glaring flaw of this book?

Do marvel really think its audience are this stupid?

Is Rick Remender secretly mocking events with Axis?

@american_flag: I actually think its one of marvels better events if you read just the core book in Trade form.
House of M is a moral debate about whether it would be heroic to allow utopia to exist if you knew it was a lie. its similar to the concept of matrix. everyone gets what they want, everyone is happy, but wolverine knows the truth because his wish is double bladed sword, he gets to remember everything for the first time in his life and thus is able to remember true reality. what is the most heroic thing? to allow everyone to be happy or the truth. The writing is great and the art is brilliant. the core series is therefore one of the better marvel events.

the problem with House of M is three things:

1) the pacing is super slow from issue 2-5 in order to allow the world to build up and to explore the ethical debate (because its a debate that cannot be resolved by punching everything in sight all the time). As a trade the book your not forced to endure the wait between issues, thus the book flows better as a result.

2) This was made only worse by the tie-ins which also went nowhere and disputed the regular story lines. I think nearly every marvel title was affected by it, not just the avengers/x-men books.

3) the outcome. the illogical depowering of mutants. Marvel dug themselves into a hole by choosing to have certain character effected by the depowerment and others some how not effected.

For those I completely get why it resulting in people looking on the event in such a bad light. that said, if you complain the ideas explored in the main series to recent marvel events like AvX, Original Sin, Axis, fear itself etc you'll realise House of M explored them in vastly superior way.

Guess Quill's confrontation with Thanos leads into this, glad to see it's going to have ramifications. This could be good(The parts written by Humphries & others); I dropped GOTG for one reason: Bendis. Nothing against the guy, but it just isn't his type of book. Big team books like GOTG & Avengers just aren't for him. A team of street-level characters, yes, not Earth's Mightiest Heroes or a ragtag team of cosmic adventurers. I've really been enjoying Legendary Star-Lord, picked up Rocket Raccoon & enjoyed it; actually these two & Bucky Barnes:The Winter Soldier are the only books I'm picking up from Marvel concurrently. (Gonna give Angela: Agent of Asgard a shot when it comes out.) Not too crazy about it tying into Captain Marvel & Nova; or even X-Men(seems to make it a little less cosmic with their involvement); I tried both CM & Nova, didn't work for me. And Bendis' GOTG is self-explanatory, I hate it because I do love all the characters in GOTG. The dialogue & lack of action is just too much. But I'll definitely pick up the LSL & RR parts. I miss the days of cosmic events like Annihilation- it'd be awesome if they made a new Annihilators series & tied it in, & maybe tied in Abnett's G3000(at least get get the D in DnA involved!), & I'd even accept BB:TWS with its new cosmic scope. Guess the only connection I'll have to this event is through Legendary Star-Lord & Rocket. As long as they don't screw them up, I'm cool.

wow I mean I get why you don't like Bendis GOG but man you shot yourself in foot by saying bendis can't handle big team books. Bendis helped turn around avengers which was shambles under Austen and decent but forgettable under Johns. People forget, avengers where not that popular in the early 2000's.

Bendis not only helped turned Avengers around but also turn in into marvel favorite team book after years of Mind blowing good X-Men Stories. Then he expanded the avenger portfolio into Mighty Avengers & New Avengers, Dark Avengers then Avengers & New Avengers. he also created Illuminati team Bendis also made Scarlet Witch one of most important characters in marvel universe. He did a lot of excellent work to promoted diversity by continuing his work on pulse to make Luke Cage one of best marvel characters out there instead of blaxploitation with out resorting to gimmicky replacements like marvel are doing now with Falcon/Cap and Girl Thor. He single handed promoted spider-woman and helped Reed promote Ms Marvel long before DeConnick begun the tumblr pandering Captain Marvel series. He made mistakes (every writer does) but I would't dare say big teams are not his strength.

The problem with the GOG run is that he has pander to idiots who leaped on the GOG bandwagon when the movie was announced and now the movie is out. People who boldly declare their love of star lord yet have no idea of the character bizarre past. People who ignored the excellent Abnett and Lanning run, people who don't like that run because their character there they've heard off or there's no awesome mix tape mentions or silly dancing etc. Bendis hands are tied by Marvel/Disney obsession with all things to all people franchises. Remember Disney are now trying to increase sections of the marvel portfolio to replace all the x-men, fantastic four books they are gonna get rid of in the years to come. I think bendis should probably leave GOG but I cannot imagine another writer doing any better with such restrictive controls set on them by marvel. Plus GOG isn't even that big of a team, everything with groot writes itself.

Maybe you should of said "bendis isn't that great a handling sc-fi concepts, he's better doing more ground interactions around the dinner table in avengers towers, then trying to pull that same trick in space"
