Subj: Slott's Iron Man run
Posted: Wed Mar 18, 2020 at 11:05:03 am EDT (Viewed 177 times)

Hi All,

With all the 2020 stuff, I'm enjoying it, mostly. It's fun to see the old 2020 ideas brought back in IRL 2020. It's fun to see Jocasta & I appreciate Rhodey wrestling with being a superhero.

BUT, I'm kind of dissapointed in Slott's run in general. I feel like this run could have been truly special.

He's addressing themes of sentience, of who deserves rights and who doesn't, of what life actually is, but I don't feel like he's digging very deep into any of the ideas therein. Maybe the resolution of the story arc will surprise me, but at this point I kind of doubt it. The themes have been threaded throughout from issue one, but the conflicts are very surface level.
