It’s not often that I find a reason to read a Marvel comic. Most of the comic writers I follow don’t play in the Marvel universe. However, Tom Taylor is changing that. Since his run in the Star Wars universe under Dark Horse Comics, I’ve been following Tom’s work. He has a great knack for writing intriguing characters and entertaining dialog that packs punch and humor. When Tom jumped into DC Comics, I followed, and I’ve fallen in love with his Injustice: Gods Among Us series. With Superior Iron Man #1, he’s now jumped into the Marvel playpen. So the question is, what has Tom got in store this time?

Things start off with a Tony Stark we can all relate to. He’s cocky, humorous, and on top of things. Flying in to San Francisco to team up with She-Hulk and take down a monstrous looking villain named Teenage Monstrosity, we get our first does of Iron Man. There’s action, witty dialog, and a fun use of other characters. But as things progress, another side of Tony Stark shows itself, and it’s a side ruled by arrogance and doomed for trouble. Tony has created a techno-virus that can make people appear beautiful. Furthermore, he’s released it to the public and created an instant wave of addicts. Cue the first steps toward chaos.

With this first issue, Tom Taylor lays down the seeds of what could be a very entertaining story. What happens to a hero who becomes corrupt? The last page gives us a glimpse at Plan B, but and with an assortment of fun cameos, it’ll be interesting to see who shows up next. Either way, the characters leap off the page with their personalities and there’s plenty of potential.

Artwise, Superior Iron Man #1 looks about how you would expect for a modern Marvel comic. The artwork is shiny, vibrant and crisp. Everything is very bright and colorful with a mixture of full page panels, dual page spreads, and they typical multi-panel layouts. Yildiray Choi does a good job of creating panels that are easy to follow and enjoy.

While this isn’t the first Marvel comic I’ve ever read, it is the first I’ve read in a while, and diving into this one, I feel like I’m in safe hands. The story and characters are intriguing, the art looks good, and I’m in for #2. I give Superior Iron Man #1 a five out of five metal bikinis.
