Iron Man 3 Game Day Commercial

Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?

Publisher’s Blurb:
As superstar athlete Mara Prince’s superpower manifestation is caught on live TV, her life rapidly starts to spiral out of control. The media descends like vultures. Her handlers go into spin mode. The footage is seen around the world, and this young woman, who only hours ago was the darling of pop culture, is now being slammed and ridiculed for being a fraud and a liar. But the more she tries to fight back, the only thing she’s doing is escalating the problem. A sci-fi take on real world superheroes by the powerhouse team of BRIAN WOOD, MING DOYLE and JORDIE BELLAIRE!

Reviewer’s Comments:
The fallout from Mara’s “incident” continues in this second issue. The question that everyone is asking is “Did Mara cheat?” Mara’s publicist is trying to do damage control as the public and the media turn on Mara. They call her a cheater, they throw things at her.

Mara’s frustrated as she doesn’t know what happened or why. Even Mara’s brother and her teammate Ingrid doesn’t know what to think. And while Mara and her are at a girls training camp (which reminded me of the training camps in China), another incident occurs…

I enjoyed the story and it’s such an intriguing idea. The creative team works well together as Wood’s writing Doyle’s artwork, and Bellaire’s colors compliment each other very well to visually and orally introduce this new society to readers.
