johnkmccubbin91's Invincible Iron Man #523 - The Future Part 3: Swarm review

There's Something More to Rescue

This hasn't been one of the better Iron Man story arcs but it's still been good and should pick up a bit more next issue. The only thing I didn't like was the cover. Although it is very nice it is misleading as Tony doesn't become Iron Man again in this issue.

This issue starts with Pepper in the Rescue out fit still chasing down Rhode (although she still doesn't know it's him) in the rip off Iron Man suit. Elsewhere Tony and Ezekiel are still working for Mandarin towards his scheme. Whilst Pepper and Rhode continue to fight Pepper pulls a part of the foot part of Rhodes armour revealing his foot and making her realise it might be him under there. Zeke manages to lock the mess hall and turn off the cameras there for 68 seconds so Tony can try and convince the other people working for Mandarin whether they like him or not to help him as Mandarin screwed them over. Wyche tries to hack into the Rescue armour helmet to see if it's been compromised but after getting warned by the J.A.R.V.I.S. AI inside the suite get turned on by it. The issue finishes with Blizzard coming to Zeke and telling him he wanted to help with Tony welcoming him "to hell". This page is were the armour shown on the front appears in this issue.

Final verdict. This is a good issue and it looks like the series will end on a high like it should. I would recommend it and am looking forward too seeing Tony fight back against Mandarin.

Rating: 3.5/5
