Oct 08, 2016 rated it really liked it
Good! So back in 2008 I kinda went Iron Man crazy with the Movie coming out that year, collecting everything I could, which included this series! This is written by the same guy who did Demon In a Bottle; and here he writes a series which goes back to the retro Iron Man from the seventies! The Story has Iron Man and Doom face off against each other as Doom goes off to find Excalibur, King Arthurs sword; so he can...(Spoiler Block)! This story is also a sequel to a previous Doom vs Iron Man Story ...more

The storytelling was meh but the artwork in this series was GREAT - super vibrant and fun, less tailored to the male gaze than later volumes.

While all greats in Iron Man lore, David Michelinie, Bob Layton, and Ron Lim tell a completely unneeded story with almost no value other than reminding readers they once created something better. This was a pretty terrible callback to a classic. The villains made no sense, there was no intrigue or drama, and both Stark and Doom look like idiots. Lim's art was the only thing holding this up. Overall, if you love Iron Man...don't read this. ...more

This is a sequel to two previous stories involving Doctor Doom and Camelot. The book opens with Doom calling Iron Man to Latveria on the pretext of needing his help, but only to sell him out to Mephisto as part of a plot to obtain something Morgan Le Fay.

The story is not bad, but it seethes it's unnecessaryness and disposableness. As a one-off, it doesn't effect future continuity and it doesn't tell some profound or can't miss story. It has some good scenes, some okay characterization, and art

Probably a 3.5 more than 4, but I marked up rather than down. This is without doubt the weakest of the three Iron Man/ Dr Doom Camelot stories, but it is still pretty fun. Any book with Mephisto and Doom in it is always worth a look after all.
Although Camelot was the tenuous link to all this, in reality Morgan's Le Fey had very little to do with things, though Merlin and Excalibur played their part. Michelinie delivers a very retro feeling script that does all you expect, and the art by Ron Lim

Oh, wow, this was even better than the first two parts of the Camelot Trilogy, and by "better" I mean "more bizarre," because, uh, yeah, that scene with Excalibur and the eyeball monster was really something.

Also I am definitely here for Tony seeing bizarre demon versions of his father in hell and having to scream at him that his mother loved both of them. Tony, Tony... you have some family issues.

Recommended if you like even more time-traveling Camelot weirdness.

This book feels like it was written in the wild 80's and it even looks that way! Right off the bat you can tell you're in for a weird, wild ride! So much weirdness crammed in...I don't even know where to begin!
What the heck was 'Big Daddy' all about? Is that really supposed to be a Baalor Howard Stark? The hip slang talking Merlin threw me for a loop and Mephisto's Industrial MC Escher version of Hell was weird too! I didn't hate this book...but man it was a trip!

I love how unabashedly goofy this book is. It knows it's strengths and plays to them well. Though the iteration of Hell and Mephisto was unconvincing and Merlin was given weird, hip dialogue, this was just a blast to read. Forcing Iron Man and Doctor Doom to grudgingly work together makes for some great storylines. ...more
Pretty fun little series. Iron Man and Doom make for good partners and antagonists. Marvel still abuses the time travel/multiple dimensions trope, but in this collection it's not quite as offensive. The Big Bad was odd, to say the least. ...more
