PrivateBozz 5pts Well that Mandarin story is ridiculous, as is the Mandarin's costume - I liked his last appearance a lot more. The series is also suffering majorly from the secret identity shtick by now, and I can't wait for Iron Man's identity to be revealed finally. Add to that that I've grown extremely tired of the romance angle, I'd prefer not to read about Tony pining for boring Pepper (or boring Pepper's own pining) ever again. What still works well though is how Tony's constantly operating near death due to his heart condition and some trouble with the armor, it really makes everything more interesting. Pushing himself widely out of any comfort zone, even up to his possible death, gives his character certainly some depth.
