They ruined Iron Man even harder in the movie than they ever did the comics.
That's unfortunate because Matt Fraction and Salvador Larroca's run on Iron Man was one of the best in a very long time and it hasn't been as good since they left the title years ago.
I agree though, Millar's Iron Man in Civil War was NOT Tony Stark. He was a fascist dickbag in a Tony Stark suit.
Eeeh, I'd say that Bendis recent work on Iron Man is fantastic, but of course with Bendis it is the complete run which will have to be judged. He has a rather bad tendency of dropped plotlines and meandering.
