If I'm understanding your question correctly, the iterator is created in
GraphMapper, just before compute() is called. Messages are tranferred
to the vertices prior to the compute portion superstep.

Question about the message passing API:
BaseVertex#sendMsg(I id, M msg)
sends messages. And
deals with them in a big iterator provided by the framework. My
question is where the Iterator of messages is created? If I wanted to
say, subvert the processing to avoid buffering them up into one big
List, and instead handle them as they come in, where would I look in
the code to see where it's buffered up?
