The day that Iron Man opens is finally upon us. I'm sure most of you, like myself, saw the movie last night at an advance screening. It's AWESOME.
The Invincible Iron Man #172 is also awesome. Check it out:
It opens with a drunk Tony Stark in a museum, wearing a suit of armour and being crazy:
The cops take him down:
Ok, so now Captain America enters the story, and someone is very romantically describing him in the narration:
"The way his muscles flex and lock to give him a purposeful lope." I don't know who's doing the talking there in those narration boxes. I like to think Tony. Or maybe it's just Denny O'Neil who has the crush on Cap.
Anyway, Captain America finds Tony in a seedy motel room:
Now it's Cap's turn to get romantic about Tony:
During all of this, Firebrand has decided to make a comeback. He wants to burn down the very motel that Tony is staying in. Since Tony isn't going to save himself, Cap has to do everything:
Oh, and the OTHER thing going down in this comic is that, because Tony hasn't been around, Stark Industries has fallen apart and has now been sold to...
No, wait. Obadiah Stane I mean. Yeah.
This comic is great. And so is the movie. It was worth the wait!
