Hello Mother. I’m Tony
The issue starts out at Howard Stark’s funeral. Tony, not being Iron Man yet, is drunk and clearly hurting. Sure, he says how hard his dad was on him and how he doesn’t think Howard loved him, but it’s pretty obvious that deep down he loved and admired his old man. Nick Fury gives Tony a reality check about Howard Stark before telling him to man up and do something with his life. Leave it to Nick Fury to drop the truth bombs, right?
There’s a reason I’ve been hearing so much good stuff about Bendis and Maleev working together and I’m glad I decided to check it out. Anyone looking for not only a good Iron Man story, but a good Tony Stark story, should definitely check out this series as we start to move forward with Tony’s mother.
