In the ongoing chess match between Tony Stark and the Mandarin, it looks like the tables have well and truly turned, as Tony is finally back fighting. Mandarin doesn’t know that he’s building a new Iron Man suit, that he’s working alongside a non-braindead Zeke Stane, and that he’s managing to get some of his villains, like Blizzard, on his side. That scene where Tony made his pitch to the villains was just great, classic Stark charm. I can’t wait to see this final battle when it happens, it’s been a slow burn, but that only makes the ending even better. Or at least that’s how it’ll hopefully turn out. Away from Mandarin City, Pepper sort of figures out that the new Iron Man is Rhodey, even if that is a little bit racist, and then, shockingly, she and Wyche are attacked by JARVIS in the Rescue outfit. I wonder who is in charge of JARVIS? Is it Tony trying to protect his tracks, or is it the Mandarin? This book is making me paranoid, I swear.
