I think I know why Tony has been avoiding Amanda lately. He's secretly tested her DNA and now knows that she is not his biological mother. I thought it was interesting that when Amanda saw Maria in the eScape, Amanda exclaimed.."Oh, #$%&". I think she is hiding something. The red button scene with the Controller also enforces my view that Stark is already 10 steps ahead of Amanda and is aware of her deception (I hope).
It was odd to see Andy question Tony's ethics. Did Andy really expect Tony to let the Controller kill a bunch of people because Stark's computer program didn't want to go inside his armor for an hour or two?
I'm very open-minded, but trading human life to keep a computer program from feeling uncomfortable for a few hours seems strange to me. It's like that time in "2010: The Year We Make Contact" when Bob Balaban's character wanted to stay behind and literally die with the Hal 9000 computer...so he could "comfort" HAL when Jupiter became a star and incinerated both of them (!!).
Those Iron Man-style VR masks the eScape users wear remind me of the creepy masks the kids wore in Halloween III: Season of the Witch.
I enjoyed seeing Tony go into superhero-mode and take charge of the situation when the Controller revealed himself.
Now about that booze in the next issue...
