*Marvel: The premier appearance of one of Marvel’s iconic heroes and one of the gems from the Square Mile Collection: in the pages of Tales of Suspense #39, millionaire genius Tony Stark was abducted by Reds behind the Bamboo Curtain (it was a different time…) and forced to manufacture advanced weapons to crush capitalism. Our intrepid hero turned the tables on his captors by devising a cybernetic suit of armour which transformed him into an unstoppable juggernaut of justice – but at the cost of a near-fatal injury to his heart, which required constant contact with his robotic armour to keep beating! Under the artistic talents of (usually) Don Heck (who devoted special attention, bless him, to the many shapely ladies Tony Stark romanced), the sophisticated world of Tony Stark vied with the action-adventure of his Iron Man persona for the readers’ attention. Following the blockbuster success of the Iron Man movie franchise, demand for this issue has never been higher. This is a CGC 6.0 Blue Label (no restoration), a Fine equivalent.
