Our sizzlin' series of Silver Age Spotlights on Mighty Marvel mainstays continues with a look at the Invincible Iron Man! Head engineer Chris Eberle lays out the schematics of the first five years of Iron Man stories: the supporting cast, the nefarious foes, the Cold War propagandism ('COMMIES!'), the high-tech armor with its various upgrades, and the tortured, ingenious human being at the center of it all, 'cool exec with a heart of steel' Tony Stark. Includes a quick, nostalgic nod to the 1966 Iron Man cartoon! (2:56:40)
