Tales of Suspense # 70

Issue: Tales of Suspense # 70
Writer: Stan Lee
Artist: Don Heck and Jack Kirby
Publication Date: October 1965

Brief Summary:


Well, you know how Titanium Man rolls.  It's all "for the glory of communism" this and "red scare" that.  Iron Man fights him for the majority of the story, and the only thing really notable that occurs is that Happy Hogan seemingly kicks the bucket.  We'll see about that next time.

Stan decides to use some of the art from the prior issue, and then tells the reader that he's doing it in the captions.  That's some pair of stones on the man.  Hey, we're re-using this art, get over it.

In Cap's WWII era tale, he fights on in his quest to rescue his sidekick Bucky.  That goes rather poorly, as he finds himself tied up next to his partner.  Cap will go on to have more glorious rescue efforts, I'm sure.  File this one in the try again next time column.  The story continues next ish..
Favorite Panel:

It's important to get those calisthenics in, even while fighting Nazis.
