Iron Man 2020 #4
Writers: Dan Slott & Christos Gage
Artist: Pete Woods
Cover Art: Pete Woods
The Iron Man 2020 storyline continues here as the Machine Rebellion takes a turn to the negative side after the “death” of Mark One last issue. As this moves toward the final two issues, major events happen here that will certainly lead to the wrap up of the series.
Dan Slott, who will be leaving Iron Man after this saga concludes, built a fascinating story here with Friday on her mission (which I am going to try to not spoil). Another aspect of the issue that I liked more than I had ever before was the connection between Machine Man and Jocasta. This pair was an unexpected joy in Iron Man 2020 #4.
The whole Machine Rebellion storyline has not been a personal favorite of mine, but this issue was the one that made it more of a connection to me. I am interested to see where the title goes from here.
I do want to state that I think the art from the interior of the book as well as the cover is fantastic. This story required more of a detail in the art than some comics may and Pete Woods came to play here. The cover especially is beautifully rendered.
