I think you and Mandy have covered everything perfectly, but here are a few of my random thoughts on the issue:
I think Bethany may still be in love with Tony Stark. Look at how she looks at him when he is trying to get up out of bed to go fight Ultron, and she tells him to "lie down". It's all right there in her face. I like the Jan / Tony romance (I hope it lasts for awhile), but every time they are together in a room with Bethany, I sort of feel sorry for Beth because I know that she is dying inside. She can call Tony "boss" or "Stark" or "Chief" all she wants, but I know it's all just an act to hide her true feelings.
I'm not sure I would have accepted a talking cat in Iron Man a few years ago, but Rocket Raccoon is one of my favorite things in the MCU now, and I used to buy Shazam (Captain Marvel) DC comics when I was a kid, and I think there were talking animals in that comic too, as I recall.
So next issue will wrap up Slott's main Iron Man run? I guess we don't know that yet. After Iron Man 2020 ends, I'm wondering if he will continue with a new Iron Man comic...will there even be a new Iron Man comic? The uncertainty is brutal, but Iron Man has never been about certainty. I need to accept that.
P.S I liked the Citizen's watch ad on the back page. At a time when Marvel Comics / Marvel Studios seem to be removing Iron Man from existence, both in movies and comics*, it's nice to know that other big companies still recognize Iron Man as a valuable property by placing him front and center in their advertisement.
* Seriously, a Force Works comic WITHOUT Iron Man? Give me a break. (Spoken with my best Stan Lee impression).
Looking forward to next issue.
