I do love (absolutely and without reservation) this run on Iron Man. It might be one of the best runs of all time for any comic, ever. But this is weird. In the panel above, from issue #119, Iron Man slows the descent of the SHIELD helicarrier, which houses at least ten jets at a time along with about two aircraft carriers worth of weapons and personnel. His power is awesome. And yet, in the very next issue he can’t lift a jet….
If I gave out no-prizes, I’d offer one to the reader who can explain that! He hasn’t switched armor, by the way.
