I gotta say, the art is awesome here. That close-up of Riri's eyes is actually intimidating. That's damned impressive to convey in a comicbook.

I still don't buy that the current iteration of Stark Enterprizes has any right to the armor. Stark invents that in his spare time, not as a company product. If it were a company product, the board should have sued him ages ago for fiduciary responsibility failure, since he uses company resources to create something not intended to be sold. The impression I've had is that Stark invents minor products for his company, and uses the profits he makes on those minor inventions, combined with his stock dividends, to fund his private laboratory, making any invention created thereby his private patent and property.

Moreover, even if I'm wrong about all of that, the companies that held the patents on his core armor designs are long since defunct. This new, very young company wouldn't have the rights to any of it.

In short, Stark should be perfectly within his rights to leave the armor designs to anyone he wants.

There was never anything wrong with the art. The art was and is fine.

The story continues to be the written equivalent of the Elephant Man.

Having said all of the above, I thought Bendis did a good job of making her losing those things a painful sacrifice made for the good of people she cares about. That was badly needed in this book.

It's also possible that the company having no legal leg to stand on and succeeding anyway may have been the point. They don't have a legal right to the armor, but they have lots of money and teams of lawyers and the cops and politicians on their side, so they succeed anyway.
