How Many Playboy Millionaire Geniuses Does it Take to Punch a Thug?

The 'Pyramid of Faces' is only slightly better than the standard 'Row of Faces'.Welcome, won't you?

Most of Bruce Wayne's imitators tend to be boring folk who largely disappear behind their cowls/faceplates/masks/what-have-you, but thankfully Playboy Millionare Genius du jour Tony Stark manages to be a bit more interesting than the rest. He's even more fun to watch than his red and gold alter ego Iron Man. Mike, Bill and Kevin shine as always during the ridiculous action sequences, but Robert Downey Jr.'s fast-talking dialog style makes riffing the exposition scenes difficult. Review here.
