First printing. Marvel comics.
You know that Tony Stark is a cool exec with a heart of steel, but do you know how he transformed from a glib playboy into a brilliant industrialist and iron-willed hero? Set around the time of Tales of Suspense (1959) #41, this "untold tale" with a twist reveals how the deaths of Tony's parents forged his destiny--and also reveals the fact that their tragic demise may not have been an accident, but may have been caused by a brand-new foe! Corporate maneuverings, federal agents, black tie schmoozing, international espionage, high-tech action--if it's classic Iron Man action you want, this is the story that delivers!
