Marvel History 251: Tales of Suspense # 65

Issue: Tales of Suspense # 65
Writer: Stan Lee
Artist: Jack Kirby and Don Heck
Publication Date: May 1965

Brief Summary:


http://marvel.wikia.com/Tales_of_Suspense_65


Commentary:

Stark makes some pretty hot weapons, I'll give him that.  But a man is able to sneak into his plant by riding underneath a delivery truck.  This is how his security is breached.  Yikes.

Then the perpetrator steals the Iron Man armor!  Christ on a cracker, Stark, get an ADT Security system or something.  Fortunately, all this stupidity does lead to Tony Stark having to break out his original armor in an all Iron Man showdown, and that's fun.

In Cap's story from the WWII era, he and Bucky take on a Red Skull impersonator.

Quick Thoughts:
  • Stark gets referred to as Mr. Big.  Sarah Jessica Parker is nowhere in sight.
  • The Captain America story is written in an older time comic book style reminiscent of the 1940s


Favorite Panel:

I'd like to see this panel recreated so that someone could show me that it's physically possible.
