Marvel History Post 60: Tales of Suspense # 42

Issue: Tales of Suspense # 42 Writer: Stan Lee Artist: Robert Bernstein Publication Date: June 1963 Brief Summary: http://marvel.wikia.com/Tales_of_Suspense_Vol_1_42 Commentary: Yeeeaaah Communism! That's all I have to say about this one. Was Stan Lee afraid of getting blacklisted or something?
Also, the villain known as the Actor discovers Iron Man's secret identity. Iron Man has never been the best about keeping his identity a secret, so this is not exactly surprising.
Of course, the Actor survives for all of another ten panels or so after that point, so I guess the secret's safe for now.
Favorite Panel: The Red Barbarian had a weird meat fetish all issue. Here he is throwing a piece of mutton at one his subordinates.
