Last night I read Iron Man #1 written by Warren Ellis. I have got to say it was definitely an Ellis story, complete with the quirks that make his writing so compelling. From Tony's weird behavior, to a creepy new storyline, the book is firing on all cylinders. I will pick up issue two for sure.
I have just one question. In Avengers Finale, Tony was too poor as a result of the events in Disassembled to fund the team anymore, correct? Why in his own title is he living like the richest man on earth? He has his private jet, and the money to transport his fancy "sports car" around, but he can't afford to build a new headquarters?
I understand the stock market and it's ramifications. I also understand that most corporations are top heavy, paying their top executives crazy amounts of money. I can see the points of both titles. I just don't see a sense of continuity.
