One again, I dip into the DYNAMITE magazine back issue bin to come up with yet another brain-blasting gem! This time, from a 1975 issue, we see the awesome origin of Iron Man! The mag's editors chose a more recent re-telling of the Armored Avenger's tale, showing excerpts from IRON MAN #1, from 1968, as opposed to peeking into his 1963 comics debut, in a captivating comic called TALES OF SUSPENSE! Dig that dandy drawing by Gene Colan, one of Shellhead's most persistent artist in the 60s and 70s! Click below to enlarge, 'nuff sayer!
|I was bothered, as a ten-year-old kid first reading this in '75, by |
the statement that "anyone can don the armor and become Iron Man!"
Of course, the recent IRON MAN movies seem to bear this idea out...
