I've already posted about Tony Stark's AA meeting
and Drinking in Matt Fraction's Marvel work
It seems that, as part of Fear Itself and Iron Man's involvement in the horrors of Fear Itself in Paris, these scenes might be important going forwards.
Fear Itself: Iron Man has actually been a good story. It's definitely better than the main event itself, which has been largely underwhelming.
As a brief rundown, Tony travels to Paris to take on one of the worthy who used to be the Grey Gargoyle. ( As a longer rundown... )
Yes, it's going to be interesting.
Especially when we can look forward to ( Odin watching Tony in a molten hot jacuzzi )
