People keep mentioning this storyline as if its precedent exonerates OMD/BND. That would still have to be demonstrated. As far as I can gauge from the summings-up (I stopped reading Iron Man before it happened and I haven't picked up the title since), the Iron Man story is simply an example of bad writing.

Also, that storyline immediately became the object of well-deserved ridicule, especially since it involved a superpower that had not been seen before or, AFAIK, since (rather like Mephisto's reality-altering powers). And we all recall how the Superman movie franchise tanked after Superman II.
