There's ample hilarity when Pepper Potts thinks for a moment that Tony Stark is interested in dating her. Tony's interested in only two things more than Pepper: Being Iron Man, and every woman on the planet that's more attractive than Pepper.
This issue debuts a new costume for Iron Man as well, which is much more similar to his usual red and gold appearance. Stan also takes a good long time explaining why it's a vastly superior suit, which is always a big part of Iron Man upgrades.
- Happy Hogan should probably stop pointing out that there's really no point in Stark paying him.
- The Doll Man's "I got this thing from a dude in Africa" origin is questionable at best.
Iron Man's first major cosmetic overhaul. Lookin good.
