Hey gang I just saw the new Trailer for Iron Man 3. It's looks like it's going to be a fun and dark film. (Not grim and gritty.) It was so good I had more fun watching that than reading this comic. The big thing going on here is that the guy working at Resilient totally reboots Tony Stark. I guess Tony has his own OS and he expels any trace of The Mandarin from controlling him. Tony, Zeke Stane, Whirlwind and the Living Laser take the fight to Mandarin and his giant robots.
No they don't look like Transformers, but in my mind they should. Wow I'm really all over the place. So other things going down in this issue. Pepper Potts breaks up with her Rescue armor. In a really strange scene Pepper tells the armor that she was happy to have it but it's time to say goodbye. The armor starts to complain and then Pepper Potts even gives the Rescue armor a kiss. I'll have to remember that the next time I go on vacation my desktop will miss me. I'll give it a smooch before I shut it down. Maybe that's going too far.
The Calvary arrives in the form of Bethany Cabe and the Triumph Division (the super group of the Philippines) and The Dynasty (The Avengers of China). A really big battle breaks out with the giant non-transformers and the good guys. Mandarin tells Tony and the readers that the rings that he's been wearing this whole time are really alien beings who landed on earth. They want the Mandarin to use the core of the earth to power their ship to go back home. (It's never said where but I'm pretty sure it's near Cybertron.)
Tony Stark blows up the robots and saves the earth. Zeke Stane then kills The Mandarin. Tony Stark freaks out about there are rules the good guys don't kill the bad guys. Tony goes off on Zeke Stane and Zeke retorts that Tony may have killed an intelligent alien race so what's the big deal. Tony then ponders this and looks sad. No really, he did. Or not. I like my version better. It's not a great ending but hey, it's and ending. Next month, an ending.
