Forged of a strange metal
This is the fourth straight Fear Itself tie-in for this series, and this one, while keeping a decent story going and the momentum behind it, doesn't really do much to further the story. There is a new threat to Tony, but mostly the story is just a continuation of the previous issue with Tony still at the mercy of the dwarves (and their alcohol) to get the project done which he needs. Pepper is also still in Paris and has to deal with the team of Hammer agents while trying to avoid the Grey Gargoyle as well. In both cases very little more occurs than what happened in the previous issue, and other than some Fear Itself related tie-ins, there is not much going on. The issue is still fun enough, but here the full effects of the crossover are being felt as those who have not read the tie-ins might start to be getting lost.
