Iron Man #222
Issue(s): Iron Man #222
...sympathizing with the foremen and owners...
...and then begrudgingly dealing with one random emergency...
...even having to help get a cat out of a tree...
...when all he really wants to do is get back to his housewarming party so he can rub elbows with celebrities...
...and impress cute chicks.
We've had plots like this before, like in Power Man #46, but usually the hero is trying to get to some bigger menace, not a high society party. Awesome!
Rich people also don't like reporters, right? This issue introduces Garrison Quint, Stark's new security chief, whose job is to turn reporters away.
Completing the restoration of everything to Michelinie & Layton's previous run, Mrs. Arbogast returns this issue.
Also, James Rhodes and the newly hired PR person Marcy Pearson are dating. And by dating i mean showering together.
We also see the villain Force, working for Justin Hammer and planning to "get to" Iron Man next issue.
Quality Rating: B
Chronological Placement Considerations: This is self-contained, but the MCP places Iron Man #222-225 and Iron Man annual #9 between West Coast Avengers #25-26.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A

Hooray, Mrs Arbogast is back!
Great "rest" issue between the Ghost two parter and the upcoming Justin Hammer storyline.
