Infamous Iron Man #2

Doctor Doom's stint as the new Iron Man continues here with the reformed villain paying a visit to another former associate. As with the first issue where Doom confronted Diablo, in Infamous Iron Man #2 Victor von Doom confronts the Mad Thinker. When his associate refuses to see the world through Doom's new hero-colored lenses, the two fight out their issues.

Along with Doom targeting another villain, the second issue of the new series also features the Thing hunting down the Fantastic Four villain in methods that don't befit an Avenger or member of the Fantastic Four (including busting his way into the sovereign soil of the Latverian embassy and demanding to see Doom). Sadly, we'll have to wait until the next issue to see how these former associates work out their issues. (I'm just guessing here, but I'm not expecting them to work over their issues over coffee).

Dr. Amara Perera makes another appearance here. I'm still a bit lost as to what she means to Doom or what her role will being going forward in his new heroic calling.
