CBR Review: Iron Man 2.0 #1

I recently reviewed Iron Man 2.0 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "It’s telling that the new War Machine coming is called Iron Man 2.0, because it doesn’t read like a War Machine comic; It reads like an Iron Man knockoff book. Besides shunting James Rhodes back into military service, there isn’t a lot that separates this first issue from your typical Iron Man comic. Even Rhodes himself doesn’t make much of an impression and that’s rarely been in the case in the past. There’s a dull, muted tone to this debut issue, one that makes it a fairly forgettable one, which is a surprise given Nick Spencer’s habit of delivering strong, bold first issues."
