CBR Review: Invincible Iron Man #506

I recently reviewed Invincible Iron Man #506 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "There’s a problem with big events and the surrounding books that tends to crop up. Instead of being structured like regular stories, events are usually structured around big moments, like Civil War going for, in the words of Mark Millar, a ‘fanboy orgasm’ with each issue. That means two things: supporting comics have a lot of gaps that they can fill in and certain characters have little to be expanded upon because of the demands of those big moments. Take Tony Stark for instance; in Fear Itself #4, he fell off the wagon, offering his sobriety up as a sacrifice to gain the attention of Odin and, here, in Invincible Iron Man #506, the reason for that is revealed. And not much else."
