This issue 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.
