Invincible Iron Man (2016-) #594

> THE SEARCH FOR TONY STARK continues, as some very surprising people from his present, past and future come together to help. Who will wield the power of Iron Man? It's all building to one of the most-anticipated moments in Iron Man history!

Good? Bad? Constructive criticisms?

It is almost as though someone challenged Bendis to write the worst comic ever and he said "hold my beer." This comic keeps circling the drain but never goes on in.

If you remember, our erstwhile characters held a party, purportedly to honor Tony Stark, highlighted by a 15-year old girl who arbitrarily decided to overthrow a country. Also, a member of the Stark Enterprise's board warns Pepper, I mean, MJ, that their out of bounds. Oh, and Tony Stark's body is missing.

We start with Riri asking/threatening Doctor Doom. I know they're write it as though she can, but it is laughable to think she really could. We're talking about one of the smartest and most ruthless men on the planet. The very idea that Riri could take him on is laughable. But I digress.

The, we have the Stark Girl Power team walking out of a SE building with Amanda Armstrong complaining that the SE employees had one job and they failed. First, when did Tony Stark's body end up with SE? Last time I remember, he was left with SHIELD. Meh

They're confronted Hijack who tells them that he's been hired by Stark Industries Board of Directors to turn over the armor and get off the property. The SGP refuse and Hijack goes after Riri with his ability to control cars and planes.

Bear in mind that he's in the right here. The SGPs are in the wrong. The armor does not belong to Riri, Amanda Armstrong is not an employee, and MJ was, as best, a PR person. The fight is "resolved" by Hijack leaving himself exposed to a personal attack from MJ's mace. And then, he's assaulted by Amanda Armstrong.

Next, we see MJ and Amanda burst onto an SI Board Meeting where Amanda attacks the Chairman with a guitar and declares board meeting over.

Now, bear in mind that Riri, MJ, and Amanda are 100% in the wrong here and probably committed several crimes, including corporate theft. Remember, Amanda was a mediocre musician until Tony Stark found her and now she's living in the lap of luxury. The board has every right to take control of the company.

Riri shouldn't even be there. For a corporation, she's a huge liability. Because she's a minor, she's not responsible for her actions. But, since she's wearing the SI Iron Man armor, purportedly with their consent, SI becomes 100% responsible for her. This is a level of negligence that could approach recklessness, which would include punitive damages. Remember that little stunt in Latveria? Well, Lucia von Bardas could sue Stark Industries for all of that.

None of this is rocket science and fairly obvious. You never let anyone who can't even get a driver's license have access to the most advanced battle suit on the planet. It doesn't matter how smart they are; they still lack the maturity.

I also love how Amanda has such a "deep connection" to Tony Stark. Exactly where was this connection for the past 40 years? Remember, she gave him up because she didn't want to deal with having a kid. And she did it in a Bulgarian orphanage. She didn't even have the decency to come to the US to give him up.

Of course, we paper of this because ... reasons.
