I have to admit, it does irk me that Stan could never seem to keep things straight in his writing.  This issue is full of instances where Iron Man talks to others as if he's Stark and the villain speaks to Iron Man as if he is Stark.

@fivepan Worse yet: The Unicorn talks to Iron Man, as if he knew he was Stark. "I'm going to destroy your life's work" "It will kill your secretary!"


The Unicorn itself...look, I get animal themes, but why putting the weapon on his head? What practical use has that? The most I can think of is it needs space (and the helmet looked very big) and needed to be ventilated (the heat escaping upwards, out of harms way). Still: Unless he has some way to help him aim, this must be a terrible way to shoot his various beams.


Starks little temper tandrum at the start came a bit out of the blue, and seems to be Stans way of reinforcing his "I'm a tortured man"-status, which was a bit neglected in the previous issues. It's not very subtle, but...it's not very subtle.
