The Invincible IRON MAN! His Awesome Informative Origin! 1975 DYNAMITE Magazine Dossier!

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...
