I really dont get it when people complain about being spoiled given those 2 things.......should Marvel push back all their top selling books just to accommodate the delay of Reborn to appease a few people of this minor hiccup?

You have me wrong.
I am not complaining about the story being spoiled... I know what is gonna happen but I'd like to see how it happens. Seeing Steve Rogers in the Marvel U without seeing how he was introduced back makes Reborn seem kinda anti-climatic now.

Invincible Iron Man #21

Well this is totally awkward. I have nothing but praise for Fractions run on this series. In fact, I would put it right up there with Demon in a Bottle at this point. On it's own, this issue is probably a bit on the weak side. It's not like a lot doesn't happen here, it does... kind of. Still, if you haven't really been reading this book, it may not appeal to you at all.

Still, it's solid in delivery, and yes, I'm going to take a bit off for the appearance of Steve Rogers. Sure, we all know he's coming back, but I'd rather have seen his triumphant return in his own book first before seeing him guest starring in others.

All in all, a great continuation of a great run. Tony Stark has come a full three sixty from his pre Civil War days and Matt Fraction has a lot to do with that.

Story: 8
Art: 8
My Score: 8

I think I am gonna copy/paste your review for mine... this is exactly how I felt after reading it. Every word of it.

I haven't really viewed her as a superhero....oh wait! She's not. :roll:

Her armor is defensive and perfect when collateral damage is caused. Not sure where your seeing her fight giant monsters or other people in armor? :wink:

Her primary role is to save people, Rescue, that's basic superhero stuff, they are more than just fights.

That said I disagree with Kieran.

Wut?

You knew he was coming back... you don't yet know how... so it is anti-climatic to see him even though you knew it?

Well... I don't count soldiers or firefighters as superheroes... just folks doing heroic things.

The Rescue suit to me is just a sci-fi fireman or paramedic suit...

I don't like Pepper as Rescue. It does suck really as a part for her character, overall though, I have loved this run. Waiting to get the issue before this in the post, then I'm getting this issue when I go up my LCS.

Some guy who shops at my LCS has offered me the last two arcs of X-statix for 2.00 :D :D

This was a really good issue of IIM, better than #20, lots of what Fraction does best on this book, plus Thor and Cap together again!

But I was annoyed that it spoiled War Machine #12 for me.

Review on Saturday.
