Where Superior Iron Man #5 left me a little less than enthusiastic, Superior Iron Man #5 brought back my interest. Here we get to see the backstory of Teen Abomination. Who turned him into a monster? What dark moment forever changed his life? And how is his father? The answers lie within, but we’ll refrain from spoiling them here.

The issue opens with Tony Stark taking a blood sample from Teen Abomination. Abomination tells his sad tale to Tony, how he was in an accident, how he suddenly changed, and the tragedy that followed. Tony talks some about his own past, a run in with the Black Lama, and maybe a significant detail about his own predicament. Afterwards they reveal him Teen Abomination’s father is, which strengthens the bond between him and Tony. It’s a good story and a nice way to deepen the characters.

This issue also marks a change in artists. Laura Braga handles the art in this issue with colors by Guru-eFX. I have to say I really like the artwork and it’s an appreciated improvement. The colors are rich and lively. The lighting effects are top notch. The flow of the panels works perfectly with the flow of the story. Plus the character depictions are just plain enjoyable. From the look on Tony to that of Abomination and the human characters, they strike a pleasing balance between realistic and classic comic book style illustration.

With a good story and good artwork, I give Superior Iron Man #5 a four out of five metal bikinis.
