Iron Man is born! In one of the most significant issues of the Silver Age, Stan Lee, Larry Lieber and Don Heck unite to introduce Tony Stark – a character destined to be an icon! When Stark, a brilliant arms manufacturer, is captured and ordered to develop weapons for an evil tyrant, he instead forges a mighty suit of iron that empowers his escape – and safeguards his wounded heart! Stark’s daring transformation ultimately sets him on a path of redemption that would forge him into one of Earth’s mightiest heroes: the invincible Iron Man! It’s one of the all-time great Marvel comic books, boldly re-presented in its original form, ads and all! Reprinting TALES OF SUSPENSE (1959) #39.
