Three panels from Invincibendis Iron Man #1 as Tony Stark, turning over a new leaf, is out to impress a "lovely Sri Lankan biophysicist"

The rest of the issue was hum drum, but this was good.

I don't know why, but for some reason it being Jane!Thor makes the scene somehow even funnier to me.

I just love Jane!Thor. She rocks. Her "Bro? Seriously?" look. I can imagine the next moment off panel is "Ugh, whatever, I'm calling She-Hulk for drinks."

What about her leads you to imagine that? Doesn't Jane put down the hammer and go back to regular life after standing in for Thor duty? I was under the impression her identity was still secret. Though come to think of it, how could she keep her job if she was always dashing off?

Her "job" as of God of Thunder is as an ambassador for Earth in the floating, space-borne city of Asgard. Before that, she was on sick leave, as she's in chemotherapy for breast cancer.

So basically at the end of a long day doing Thor's work she goes home and rests. That works out pretty well. It's a busy job, so sick leave lends well to it despite the unfortunate circumstances. If I were her I'd probably have a little word with Thor about what's taking him so long to come back though. "Hey I've been doing your work non-stop for months. All the while stemming off cancer. What? No, I'm not tired. No rush, take all the time you need buddy."

Nice to see a little Lankan representation in a flagship book, even if she'll be turfed out in favour of MJ Watson sooner or later. Please don't tell me her name is "Priya".

Her name is Amara Perera.

(Given the way Bendis has talked about it, I actually would be a bit surprised if MJ and Tony ended up dating.)

I can take or leave Bendis - he certainly has a lot of passion for what he writes about, I'll give him that - but literally any take is better than "The Insufferable Iron Man". After a high-concept run like Gillen's, it was a giant letdown for them to just take the absolute worst aspects of the character and magnify them just to support Hickman's tired plot.

I dunno, the Superior Iron Man stuff really only came after quite a lot of Hickman's New Avengers had already cast him as a highly unsympathetic character. Plus, outside of the event and his own book, Inverted!Iron Man didn't seem like all that much more of an ass than the regular one.

I kind of really didn't like inverted Iron-man and Inverted Havok and all the fallout from Axis really.

Instead of natural character development and human agency you get "magic changes their personalities".

Are Jane Foster and Tony Stark friends? Have they ever been? What would they talk about?
