Review: Rescue

Popping out of the amazing Invincible Iron Man book, Pepper Potts puts on the Rescue Iron Man suit and travels the world looking for people to save in this one-shot issue.  

The Good

I love the current Invincible Iron Man book. It's my favorite Marvel book out right now, and getting to see Pepper Potts in her own book, at least for one issue, looked exciting to me; however, this is a throw-away story. There are a couple of good things in this issue though. The writing and art are pretty solid page-to-page, but when the book is looked at as a whole, it’s a different story. 

The Bad

This book is pretty bland, and excuse me for spoiling it, but the whole issue takes place in a gym as Pepper Potts tells the story of her saving people’s lives elsewhere to her dead husband. That’s it. There’s no startling revelation at the end, nothing. It’s filler, and I don’t know for what. 

The Verdict - 2/5

Again, the writing and art are solid, but the overall story is so boring and meaningless that it makes everything else suffer. Pepper Potts is a great character, and she deserves a good one-shot, and this isn’t it. However, if she starts seeing her dead husband in the Iron Man book… I’ll bump this up to three stars, but until then, pass this puppy up.

Bummer, I had high hopes for this issue.

When Happy comes back as a ghost though it felt it worked out because it was really the "back bone"  of this one shot. And when Happy comes back we see Pepper drop her defense after the crap she's taking now.   The Bad:   During the World's Most Wanted story arc I reall...

      Cover I did not like the cover because she had to many lines on her face and it did not make Pepper look good. Story Pepper walks into a basement and is very tired. The basement is a mess and she starts to clean it up. She sees boxing gloves and she puts it on and all of the sudden she sees her dead husband, Happy. Happy helps her put the boxing glove on. He also helps her box. Happy says he has been watching her and all the good she has done. Pepper tells a story about her being Rescue. Then...
