I'm trying to decide whether I want to drop the cash on that thing, and before I would do that, I kinda want to know what I'm getting into.

So, a few questions:

1. Are there really secrets revealed for multiple characters? Or is that just hype?

2. If there are secrets revealed, are they meaningful? In other words, am I gonna be pissed because Hawkeye's Original Sin is that he once missed something he aimed at, because Marvel just needed to give him one?

3. How's the art and writing in this thing? Anthology series...can be spotty with that stuff. I'm not going to be totally picky about it, but if I'm walking into some Assistant Editor's Month (look it up, True Believers) quality, I need to know.

Any help anyone could provide would be appreciated!

In retconmania, Tony Stark was there in the days before Bruce Banner's Gamma Bomb Test at the request of Gen. Ross to make the bomb better.

Turns out Tony & Bruce are old time buddies (except when Tony starts suggesting how to make the bomb better to Bruce). Bruce shows anger towards Tony (retconning his original milquetoast persona). But that's nothing to the retconning of Tony being a drunk even before he created the Iron Man armor (yes, this means that Iron Man was now a drunk from Tales of Suspense #39 (1963) through Iron Man #129 (1979).

So anyways, Tony in a drunken stupor fiddles with the bomb that eventually causes Bruce to become the Hulk.

On top of this, present day Tony builds a device that allows him to replay his drunken memories of the night before the bomb test (despite those brain cells being fried a decade ago) and he realizes he's partially responsible for the Hulk's existence. Present day Hulk figures this out (somehow by using that extremis nonsense) and the two fight.

except for a mini that ended up being a lot of fun. super-smart Hulk putting the fear of God into, then laying an ass-whooping on, Iron Man was quite entertaining.

Tony's meddling actually limits the destruction of the bomb and does create the hulk but, if he hadn't redone the shielding it would have just wiped everyone att he test site off the map.

IMO - a cheap retcon with no basis to show that Tony (even drunk) is the superior intellect.

As long as I can remember what happened in the previous issue I don't care about the word retcon.
