Infamous Iron Man #1



"Everybody has Doctor Doom misunderstood. Everybody thinks he’s a criminal, but all he wants is to rule the world. Now, if you really think about it objectively, you could just walk up to a police officer and you could say, ‘Excuse me, officer? I want to rule the world.’ He can’t arrest you. It’s not a crime to want to rule the world. It’s unfair that he’s considered a villain. He just wants to rule the world and maybe he could do a better job of it." - Stan Lee

IRON MAN #144: When Tony met Rhodey...

With INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #13 showing flashbacks of Tony Stark and James Rhodes friendship, I thought I'd repost the issue that shows when Tony and Rhodey first met.

David Michelinie did an unusual split for IRON MAN #144. The first 6 pages are the conclusion to the first "Iron Man Space Armor" story. The remaining 16 pages are called "Apocalypse Then!" The art is by Joe Brozowski and Bob Layton.

We get a basic recap of Iron Man's origin, and since this issue came out in 1981, we still have Vietnam.
