The Invincible Iron Fan

And now it's time for another thrilling installment of

Things You Don't See Iron Man Do Anymore:


No, I'm not talking 'bout standing around in his golden iron undies (although he doesn't do that much anymore)...

All panels in this post from Tales of Suspense #43 (July 1963), plot by Stan Lee, script by Robert Bernstein, pencils by Jack Kirby, inks by Don Heck, letters by Artie Simek

...but rather defeating an enemy by performing cheerleader cartwheels:

Of course, the very last panel of the story does show Tony Stark doing something we still see him doing: mackin' on the fine, fine, ladies:

... "bub"?

You know, if Jason Blood wasn't standing there telling me it's Tony Stark, I would have sworn that was Namor doing a Wolverine impression.

Also? AWESOME POST!

"...by becoming a human fan!"

Wow, when did Gardner Fox start writing Iron Man?

And I so thought you were gonna comment on the golden iron undies, BB!

You know...in that first scan, that's pretty limp-looking armor. Just sayin',...that's all.

And men with pencil-thin mustaches are ALWAYS evil! I guess we should have known.

Bully: Oh, I'm sorry... golden iron underpants aren't common in your time period? My bad. (One of the first questions I ask a new friend is "So... boxers or golden iron underpants?")

I'm thinking that it's when they break out the golden iron girdle that we should start being really concerned.

Meanwhile...was Tony Stark, as originally conceived, supposed to be Hispanic? I've been watching the MST3K ep 'Lost Continent' recently, and Tony in that last panel is an absolute dead ringer for Cesare Romero in that movie.

Why have such a fancy privacy screen and not...I dunno...use it?!

The Mutt said...

"That's what you think, Bub!"

Wait, is he saying that he DID find girls under the Earth?
