rather quickly concludes the cliff hanger ending to Iron
Man #193 before
moving on to a whole new plot involving Hank Pym (Ant-Man)
and a portal to another dimension that he has managed
to open. Regrettably, this means the mutated Godzilla
is only featured in two pages here, as Tony Stark (Iron
Man) carries him out to sea and the two collapse into
the water. Stark then removes his suit, preventing him
from sinking, and the book then focuses largely on the
dealings with James Rupert Rhodes (the future War Machine)
as he puts on the modern Iron Man suit to try and save
Pym and a mysterious assailant who both fell into a portal.
Despite the story sounding a little goofy, it's actually
well handled... although not particularly interesting.
To spice things up, they added a brief few page segue
into what's currently happening with a villain called
the Enforcer, who is gunned down and killed at the end
of it. It's random, especially since the Enforcer has
no relation to the current story line or the one that
directly preceded it, but he had faced several other
well known characters in the past so his death here might
be of interest to Marvel aficionados.
Overall, this comic feels like standard filler. It's
not a bad way to pass the time if one is bored, but it's
not particularly gripping or something that warrants
multiple readings. Also, if one is contemplating purchasing
this solely for the brief stint of the mutated Godzilla,
don't bother as his appearance here is almost a cameo.
