I gotta say, I'm really disappointed. I've been dreading the eventual cop-out for Tony Stark, and this is the issue where it arrives. There is a bit of closure as Dr. Strange and eventually Tony himself get to face down the Ghost, and it is a nice little conclusion to the very slow-burn confrontation.
But the main problem is the close. Here's the deal, Tony Stark erased his own brain to destroy the master list of super-hero secret IDs when Norman Osborn took control of America's super heroes. So the last six issues have been the implementation of Stark's contingency plan; he had a backup of his mind. So with the help of the Captains America and Thor, he's reinstalled his operating system and memories. The catch? He made the backup before Civil War, before Cap was shot, and who knows how much earlier than that. So this ends up being a big escape for Stark. No other heroes will have to blame him for anything he did during that time. So the biggest backer of the pro-reg side will basically get to say "I shouldn't have done that." It invalidates too much recent history. Man, I really hope this doesn't end up as bad as I'm fearing. Stark thought things through and registration was his best option at the time, stick to your guns, Matt Fraction!
I hope Salvador LaRocca gets a storyline where Iron Man faces off against the worst of Justin Hammer's hirelings. LaRocca's been drawing so many normal people he's going to need some practice before he draws super hero fights again. I think having Blizzard, Whiplash, Beetle, Spymaster, and more show up would turn things around nicely.
Fair (with great fear)
