IRON MAN #113 (1978)

Iron Man is on the cusp of becoming something truly innovative and wonderful. And this issue is the first step in the right direction. Bill Mantlo takes over and starts to reboot the character.  He starts by introducing the new Stark International, retooled and revamped, and then kicks Jack of Hearts out of the comic.  Thank God.  He was so much deadweight.

And then…

A very cool, new version of the LMD.  And if that wasn’t enough…

A new improved Unicorn!

Things are looking up!

Meanwhile, Iron Man is being stalked by a mystery man who looks an awful lot like (and is) Titanium Man.
