Batman and Iron Man



Here's a timely cover with the big sequel opening up this past weekend. I featured Iron Man wearing my all time favorite armor here, the classic red & gold with the widow's peak helmet. As much as I love the cool armor that Jon Favreau has been using for his films, I was really hoping that we would get a suit closer to this classic look for a scene or two.

I liked Iron Man 2 a lot - maybe not as much as the first one, but that was a nearly perfect superhero film so that doesn't surprise me. The acting across the board was well done and the action scenes were great. I did feel that the villains could have posed a bit more of a threat, they seemed to get dispatched relatively easily. Anyway, I can't wait for the next few Marvel movies and then the eventual ensemble piece, The Avengers!

I love this stuff. You do great work! Very impressive. I can't wait to see Batman teamed with either Ghost Rider or Iron Man for "A Tale Of Two Scarecrows!"
Can't wait to see what else is coming.

Perfect timing with this one, Ross. I really liked Iron Man 2. I won't say that it was better than the first; I agree that the first was nearly perfect, but the second had so many great elements, and segued perfectly for upcoming Marvel projects.

Hope you stayed for the scene at the end of the credits!

I did! I just didn't want to ruin it for the folks who check out your page. For those who don't yet know; stay around after the credits for a grand surprise!

The original of that cover is the one where Batman teams up with Black Lightning, isn't it? That's a great story in its own right.

That's the one!
