Iron Man #146-147
Issue(s): Iron Man #146, Iron Man #147
When i thought it was Backlash, i figured that made sense, although i don't know why he'd change it from Whiplash. Blacklash, i don't even really understand) during this arc, and he has a new costume as well. Apparently. Without going back and comparing, the costume looks just about the same to me with a different color scheme. The nun-chucks, on the other hand, are definitely new.
Beyond that, I don't know why he feels the need to re-name himself. This is a guy that goes up against one of the Marvel Universe's most powerful, heavily armored super-heroes with nothing more than a tricked-out whip...
...and generally has a good showing. This arc, he pretty much destroys Stark Enterprises main compound. That's not bad!
I suppose we can look to Blacklash's home life for reasons for his lack of self-confidence.
Yvette Avril, from Stark's French office, is made vice president of SE.
Bethany Cabe is heading out for Germany as a result of her visit to the West German Embassy last issue, and she's not telling Tony about it.
Michelinie and Layton do a great job using the staff of Stark Enterprises to deliver layered plots and good character moments.
