Am I supposed to not understand what's going on at all? Because if that was the goal then it succeeded wonderfully. Am I supposed to know who that woman on the last page is? Seriously what the fuck? How do you go from a solid first issue to the garbage this was.

She is a new character, introduced in the first few pages of the issue. She's the person that Arthur talked to at the beginning.

Wasn't all that confusing at all.. pretty simplistic to be honest.

Tony wants to get rid of Extremis around the world.

The Circle has recruited people and enhanced them with Extremis, as a deterrent against their neighbor Latveria and against Iron Man. One of the recruits is this supposed badass from Russia who was to exoskeleton piloting what Black Widow and Winter Soldier were to espionage for the KGB.

They make Iron Man go through a gauntlet of their five (or however many) recruits to get the Extremis. Tony goes through with their proposal only as far as he can figure out a way to destroy their Extremis, losing the fight against this russian Lancelot in the process, thus building her up as a potentail big time foil for him in Gillen's run.

I'm sure we'll see her again.

yes I realize she's from the begining but why make a new character a center the reveal only that she's a she? That might have been shocking...40 years ago? Hell I was expecting Crimson Dynamo the whole time though it is obvious that's who she will become. But who is the other chick? The Merlin???
