Iron Man #257 (1990)

Ron Frenz’s brother gets a job writing.  The result is a cliched, sentimental piece of filler. Tony Stark goes to Japan where an armored villain who calls himself…No.  Wait.  Guess.  It’s Japan, so what’s his name?

Samurai Steel.


Anyway, the dude is mad because Tony’s daddy helped build the bomb dropped on Nagaski so he fights Iron Man for a while before killing himself to stop a nuclear meltdown.
