Tony Stark: Iron Man #18 Critiques the American Healthcare System [Preview]

Tony Stark: Iron Man #18 is in stores from Marvel next week, by the brain trust of Dan Slott, Christos Gage, Paco “Funky Cold” Madina, Walden Wong, Edgar Delgado, and Joe Caramagna. We’ve got a preview below, featuring a scathing critique of the American for-profit healthcare industry.

Tony Stark: Iron Man #18 [Preview]

It’s part three of The Ultron Agenda, and if you’re wondering what exactly Ultron’s agenda is, it’s to distribute free healthcare via socialized medicine, in other words, Medicare for all. He’s like the Elizabeth Warren of killer robots.

As we find excited citizens rushing to the streets when they learn that Ultron is giving out free cybernetic upgrades.

Frankly, it’s outrageous that most of the civilized countries in the world are able to not only offer robotic upgrades to all citizens, but they spend less per capita on robotic upgrades at the same time, while insurance companies and Republicans say it’s impossible to pay for robotic upgrades for everyone.

Meanwhile, at Tony Stark’s private hospital only for the ultra-wealthy, how many millions of dollars in resources are being spent on a man who isn’t even the original copy of himself?!

Just because Jacosta doesn’t have as much wealth as Tony, she can fall in right in a hospital and no one helps her while everyone continues to fawn over the billionaire. Disgusting.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
