Invincible Iron Man #150 Review by (September 1, 2015)
Comments: Part two of two parts; this would come to be known as Part 1 of the Camelot Trilogy, with Part 2 coming in issues #249-250 and the conclusion in the IRON MAN: LEGACY OF DOOM miniseries.

Review: Man, oh, man, this just gets better and better in an issue that seems longer and more action–packed than usual! Doom gets snooty with Arthur and his knights, enters a duel of wits with Morgan le Fay, and leads an undead army! Tony plays magic tricks with the throne, makes time with a medieval babe, and battles Morgan’s guardians! In the end the two enemies have to pool their resources to get home! And every sequence is excellent, though my favorite is Iron Man facing the black light! Read this one.




 

Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Invincible Iron Man #150 Synopsis by T Vernon
Having been hurled back through time by a vengeful Gert Hauptmann, Iron Man and Doctor Doom finds themselves in Camelot, home of King Arthur. Several knights come to investigate this odd happening and ask them to submit. Doom’s arrogance flares up and he fights with the knights until Iron Man can persuade him that a more peaceable response is better. Soon they are taken before the King, where Iron Man tries to explain that he and Doom have a grievance to settle then they will be gone. He then uses a bit of magnetic technology to levitate the king‘s throne. Doom, however, refuses to do tricks, proclaiming himself the king of his realm. Arthur puts off a ruling until the next day, offering the two visitors his hospitality….
In has room, Tony Stark worries about getting home from a different time. He takes solace in the female servitor he has been given. Doom is revealed to have intended this time period as his destination (in the time cube boosted by the stolen tech) and hypnotizes his servant girl in telling him how to find Morgana le Fay. When Arthur hears that Doom is the villain and has escaped; Iron Man volunteers to bring him back. Meanwhile, Doom arrives at Morgana’s castle where the sorceress is imprisoned. After discovering that the drawbridge is an illusion, Doom uses his jet pack to enter the highest tower where he finds her. He explains that he is visiting all of the great magicians and sorcerers of history to find if there is some way he can release his mother from hell. She agrees to help him if he will perform a small task for her: kill King Arthur.
She uses a small chip taken from Arthur’s mighty sword Excalibur to raise from the dead an army of men who had been killed by that fabled weapon. The undead army then marches on Camelot with Doom at their head. The two armies meet on the plain outside the castle and battle is joined. Realizing that Doom cannot raise the dead, he jets off to find Morgana le Fay. Approaching her castle he fights off crystals that wrap him in tendrils of black light. He then encounters Morgana’s pet hawk, which grows into a giant prehistoric beast; he defeats it by freezing it with a Freon tube. The sorceress vows vengeance against the hero after she learns to counter his “magicks” and vanishes into another dimension. With her and the Excalibur chip gone, the undead army disintegrates. Iron Man and Doom reunite where they discover they can use their combined tech to recreate the workings of the time cube, forcing them to call a truce and work together. Returning to the 20th century their makeshift time machine disintegrates and they part, Doom vowing vengeance.
