    Default When Words Collide - Nov 26, 2012

    With the return of BEFORE THEY WERE FAMOUS, Tim looks at Bill Manto and John Romita Jr.'s "Iron Man" #115 - the issue immediately before David Michelinie and Bob Layton redefined what it meant to be Tony Stark.

    Tim,

    You need to read some early Iron Man! There's scenes from Iron Man 2 that look like they were directly lifted out of the Stan Lee/Gene Colan issues. I wouldn't dispute that the Michelinie/Layton/Romita issues are Iron Man's high point, but there's a lot of good stuff that came before. The Lee/Colan stuff is great, some of Stan's best scripting outside of Fantastic Four and Spider-man. The Archie Goodwin/Johnny Craig issues are pretty good, too.

    I like Romita Jr.'s art better when he started off. I've never liked his art until seeing this issue.
    Cyclops was right.
