Iron Man and Power Pack #2 Review by (September 10, 2021)
Comments: First story: Stories set on Earth-5631. Stories take place immediately after FANTASTIC FOUR AND POWER PACK (2007 series). Second story: Part two of four. Mini-Marvels come from Earth-99062.

Review: Another enjoyable all-ages adventure with a mildly silly parody of Donald Trump in Arnold Crumb. Crumb even has a TV catch phrase, “Get out,” that mirrors Trump’s “You’re fired!”


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Iron Man and Power Pack #2 Synopsis by T Vernon
The Power Pack Kids (Alex/Zero-G, Julie/Lightspeed, Jack/Mass Master, Katie/Energizer) are in school helping Julie put up posters as she is running for student government. Her chief rival is Irena Crumb, daughter of the wealthy real estate mogul Arnold Crumb, who replaces Julie’s posters with ones showing her famous father endorsing her. Irena walks out of the school, only to be kidnapped by Blizzard. The Power Pack kids go to her rescue, Jack eagerly because he has a crush on Irena, Julie reluctantly because she doesn’t like Irena, and trail the villain….

Meanwhile, Tony Stark is meeting with Arnold Crumb about a real estate deal when Crumb gets word that his daughter has been kidnapped. Tony promises to bring her back safely and becomes Iron Man….

The kids trail Blizzard to his hideout in a warehouse near the docks. While debating strategy they discover that Blizzard has a partner, the super-fast Speed Demon. The kids attack the bad guys, Julie staying hidden because Irena would recognize her, a decision that doesn’t go well with Alex. Alex spills water on the ground; it freezes and Speed Demon slides into Blizzard knocking him flat. SD snatches up Irena and takes off. Julie, as Lightspeed, is the only one who can save her so she puts on Blizzard’s mask and pursues, catching up to the baddie and taking Irena away from him. Speed Demon pursues until he literally runs into Iron Man. Irena is returned to her father; the kids decline a reward from Crumb, but Julie asks a favor of Iron Man…. Soon, posters of Tony Stark endorsing Julie for student government appear at school….
