Invincible Iron Man #6 Review by (May 21, 2013)
Tony figures out Maya was Dr Killian's accomplice because in #4 it took 2 people (Maya and Tony) wielding 2 keys (Maya's and Killian's) to open the Extremis vault. So Killian couldn't have stolen the Extremis dose on his own. Because this 6-issue arc took nearly 1½ years to be completed, there are lots of Iron Man appearances to fit in before the next issue in this series. The full list can be seen in the relevant Official Index to the Marvel Universe (or online in the unofficial Marvel Chronology Project). I will single out, in sequence:- Illuminati #2, New Avengers #2-10, Young Avengers #7,8,11, issues of House of M including IM:House of M #1-3, NAv#11-15 and Annual #1, IM:Inevitable #1-6, and NAv#16-20.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Invincible Iron Man #6 Synopsis by Julio Molina-Muscara
Iron Man faces Madden Mallen for the second time but this time and thanks to Extremis and his  new armor conducted by thought, it is Mallen who's soundly defeated. At the end, Tony Stark has no option but to kill Mallen by destroying his head.

Finally, Iron Man gets Maya Hansen arrested for being the accomplice of Dr. Killian. Without further funding from the Army, they decided to field test Extremis against the most advanced personal combat system in the world: Iron Man. And sold the that super soldier serum to a terrorist. Maya tells  Tony that she would have used the extra funding to stop manufacturing weapons and devote her research to medicine, so he's no better than her. But Tony replies that he is trying to be, and his conscience is clean.
