Invincible Iron Man: Stark Resilient TPB 2
Salvador LaRocca has a lot of new designs to work on in this trade. I’m not sure I love all the new designs, but there is no denying the sleeker look makes Iron Man look more futuristic. I don’t love the big eyes on all the suits, but I do like the new repulsor nodes dotting Stark’s new suit. War Machine and Rescue both look way too much like Iron Man, though. WM was always Iron Man with cannons and a paint job, so I’m not too worried about that, but I felt that Rescue’s old elongated helmet and swooping curves made her stand out from the star of the book. The new Rescue suit doesn’t differentiate itself much. Detroit Steel is a nice design. He harkens back to Firepower or the Iron Monger; he just dominates more of the page than the slim Iron Man. And Tony Stark might make fun of the chainsaw blade slung under Steel’s gauntlet, but it sure seemed to be pretty effective!
And I will never get tired of seeing Sawyer from LOST starring as Tony Stark. It makes me chuckle every time I see it.
