Subj: Iron Man #595...

I get the feeling this book is simply made up of whatever pages were already drawn for both titles, because the two storylines - such as they are - have nothing to do with each other.

Doom visits dr.Amara Pereira, she points a gun at him, he realizes she is pregnant, he leaves. He turns up in Latveria where he is held at gunpoint yet again, this time by who else than the Hood - who for some reason seems to be Bendis' favorite villain, because he just keeps coming back in books written by Baldy McFatface no matter how often you flush.

Meanwhile, Riri has a snappy exchange with the Tony AI, her armor starts to malfunction and she lands to find her garage is being cleaned out by corporate goons on the payroll of Stark Industries (or whatever the company is called these days), which is currently being taken over by its board of directors. Riri manages to stop the whole thing by threatening to go to the media.
A completely hairless guy wearing the old armor while in a fetal position has a heavenly vision where he calls Amanda 'mom' - a moment which made me momentarily hate Bendis even more than before - and is celebrated by all of his friends, including Rhodey (you know, the armored hero who was killed very nearly off-screen by Bendis).
The hairlessness, it seems, is the result of his body 'rebooting' itself, and apparently it was a one-off solution and oh boy, even the technobabble sucks.
Anyway, Riri, Amanda, MJ (what is her function in the story again?) and Friday suddenly realize that only Tony Stark could know where he is, and collectivelt give AI-Tony the stinkeye as he admits that he knows where Tony is but that nobody asked.

In other words, a fat lot of nothing.

I just hope that whoever comes after does an actual reboot, because there is no salvaging this stuff.
