Review & Comments

4 stars

Iron Man 2.0 #4 Review by (October 24, 2012)
This issue doesn't have War Machine/Iron Man 2.0/James Rhodes in it, except in the speech boxes of a remembered conversation. Kaylie and the Palmer Addley investigation now disappear for 3 issues for Fear Itself. #7.1 will provide a review before the story resumes in #8. The review part of #7.1 occurs immediately after this issue, before Fear Itself. The 2nd (action) part of #7.1 has more connection with the later issues.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Iron Man 2.0 #4 Synopsis by Rob Johnson
Last issue we learned that the Palmer Addley file provided by the military to James Rhodes' consulting team was a fake. Now Kaylie Harrison is being allowed to see the real file, in a secure location where she isn't allowed to remove or copy anything.

She learns that Gen'l Babbage and her employers Eastland Consultancy have been trying to get access. But now Tony Stark's influence has got her in.

Kaylie reads how he was a precociously intelligent child who grew up to be a shy outsider at school. And then a loner with a fixation on conspiracy theories about the government and media. The file ends with Addley shooting some people he believed were against him.

Presumably at that point the government secreted him away to make use of his high intelligence.
