IRON MAN #39-40 (1972)

NOTE: Post Updated March 2019


A cypher of Asian evil named White Dragon wants to impress a girl so he tries to kill Iron Man.

This dude manages to take out Iron Man.  Seriously.  The Avengers have to rescue him.

Later, he also needs Nick Fury’s help.  Against one villain nobody has ever heard of.  Or will hear from again.

Herb Trimpe did some excellent work on Hulk.  This comic?  It looks like it was drawn by Herb Trimpe’s three year old son.  When he was drunk.  And using his feet instead of his hands.

White Dragon figures out Tony is Iron Man but he dies at the end.

A ton of huge heavy drama that goes nowhere. The writing is awful and the art isn’t much better.
