AVENGERS #201 (1980)

inside the helmet

I think this was one of the first “inside the armor” shots of Iron Man.  At least, it was the first one in The Avengers.  Avengers #201 also featured a Jarvis backup feature that was serviceable but not groundbreaking.  I think Marvel was trying to turn Jarvis into a bigger character, like Batman’s Alfred, but they never really gave Jarvis all that much to do.  He’d have a few panels here or there, but never with enough regularity or consistency that he really mattered as a character.

Then, of course, they killed him and turned him into a computer.  Then he was revived again but not really put to good use.
