Marvel Masterworks: The Invincible Iron Man, Vol. 2 by Stan LeeThis is sort of an odd collection.
After Captain Americas return to comics, I guess they still hadnt given him a solo. To be fair, technically, while Tales of Suspense because Iron Mans book, it was still called Tales of Suspense so he didnt have a solo either. But, what makes this odd is that the series becomes Tales of Suspense: Iron Man & Captain America but, with the exception of two issues, Cap and Iron Man dont interact. Its kind of a misleading title and it bums me out because I want more of them working together.
But, overall, this is much stronger than the first Marvel Masterworks volume. Switching the plot and writing over to Stan Lee was the right idea. I still have significant issues with the way Pepper and pretty much all 3 female characters are written but overall, the writing is better. Its a lot more captivating, ridiculous villains aside (Doll Man? Scarecrow?). Theres a lot of angst and introspection as Tony realizes his feelings for Pepper but he can never truly be with anyone because of his heart condition. He slowly becomes more machine as he goes from wearing the chestplate all the time to wearing the armor full time. It really is interesting that they gave such a tragic plight to this character so early on.
There are a few moments with Cap that just made me smile. Like the issue where he takes out several men trying to break in to the Avengers mansion and he says Gee, fellas, it sure was nice of you guys to help me while away a lonely evening. Youre lucky the other Avengers were here because theyre really tough. I love him :)
So, this is a soft recommend. There are some extremely bland moments and I got so, so tired of Happy Hogan by second issue here but there are some great moments. The stuff with the Mandarin (while suffering from a case of the 1960s as well) was pretty great (definitely better than what they did with him in Iron Man 3), the stuff with Cap and Iron Man was great and the introspection was wonderful.

Stan Lee knew how to make an appearance.
