Verdict - 4.3

- With the release of Iron Man 3, I decided to give this a read. There is nothing special about the covers, they are just photo's from Iron Man 3. I enjoyed the issue even though it doesn't really pertain to Iron Man. The issues are basically a fill-in of what War Machine (Rhodes) was doing during The Avengers. War Machine is being sent all over the globe to investigate the Ten Rings and the Mandarin's attacks. It turns out the Mandarin is just trying to get specs on Rhodes' suit. There are a couple of nice flashbacks to the fight with the Chitauri although at first it was hard to tell by the art who they were. In the end the Mandarin gets the specs but War Machine prevails only to arrive in New York after the battle is over. While it was a nice read, I wouldn't say it is crucial to seeing the movie.
