Tony Stark foresees a little problem that may hinder him in the near future and to ensure that it never comes to pass, possibly and hopefully, he decides to purchase a media conglomerate so that he can at least spin things his way – a bonus of having a lot of money. There was only one thing he never foresaw and that would be one Pepper Potts. For those that thought that Tony could not go any lower, there are always further depths – which some would say are endless – that Tony could plunge into and all of it courtesy of Tom Taylor and Laura Braga. Tony has truly become a fairly despicable human being and yet in his own inestimable way, he still manages to pour on the charm. For those in the know, it is but a facade to hide his true motivations and what those might be are unknown but to the man himself, though it would not be surprising if it was all-encompassing global domination. The purchasing of a media giant is a smart move on Tony’s part and it is actually quite amazing when one thinks on the matter and makes one wonder why he never did so years ago. The funniest and most exciting part of the book was the arrival of Pepper and her hostile takeover of Tony’s hostile takeover. It almost left Tony speechless, which rarely happens and it finally gave readers some insight into what Pepper has been doing all this time. Another revelation that is finally made known is the identity of the other Iron Man who has been working with Pepper. It was a bit of a surprise and yet was not simultaneously given Tony’s history. With everything that is on Tony’s plate at the moment, how he deals with Iron Man, not to mention his new competitor Pepper, may just be a little too much. Knowing Tony though, he is going to have his wheels turning and soon enough, you know he will be putting them into motion sooner rather than later.
