Iron Man v1 #101
Then came the monster
Fecha: 1977.08| Créditos: Bill Mantlo (Guiones), George Tuska (Dibujos)| Edición española: BIBLIOTECA MARVEL: IRON MAN #21.

IM flies his way home after his epic battle with the Mandarin, but he gets shot down over Central Europe and encounters…the Frankenstein Monster!!


Iron Man v1 #102
Dreadknight and the daughter of creation
Fecha: 1977.09| Créditos: Bill Mantlo (Guiones), George Tuska (Dibujos)| Edición española: BIBLIOTECA MARVEL: IRON MAN #21.

Remember the totally lame first season IM cartoon? Remember the lame Dreadknight (among others)? Well, here’s his origin! And — it’s lame, too!! Saving grace: Tuska’s pencils (what else?)!!


Iron Man v1 #103
Run for the money
Fecha: 1977.10| Créditos: Bill Mantlo (Guiones), George Tuska (Dibujos)| Edición española: BIBLIOTECA MARVEL: IRON MAN #21.

Lameness continues as the bloated one — Midas — shows up!! His target: Stark International! Guest stars abound with Jasper Sitwell, Madame Masque and Jack of Hearts! Classic moment: IM on a commercial airliner taking pics and signing autographs!


Iron Man v1 #104
Triad
Fecha: 1977.11| Créditos: Bill Mantlo (Guiones), George Tuska (Dibujos)| Edición española: BIBLIOTECA MARVEL: IRON MAN #21.

Iron Man v1 #105
Every hand against him
Fecha: 1977.12| Créditos: Bill Mantlo (Guiones), George Tuska (Dibujos)| Edición española: BIBLIOTECA MARVEL: IRON MAN #21.

Stark/IM refuses to take on Midas for his company and as a result, Jack of Hearts, the Guardsman, the Wraith and others have to «twist his arm!» And hey — check out Tony’s cheesy equestrian get-up!


Iron Man v1 #106
Then there came a war
Fecha: 1978.01| Créditos: Bill Mantlo (Guiones), George Tuska (Dibujos)| Edición española: BIBLIOTECA MARVEL: IRON MAN #21.

Jasper Sitwell threatening Madame Masque! He won’t help the «others» fight Midas for Stark International! It’s all-out war with IM, the Guardsman and Jack of Hearts against Midas and his flying fortress full of flunkies (say that three times fast!)! Tuska’s art is its usual excellent stuff, and the story flies along, but the dialogue is a bit cheesy — but the dialogue from Midas himself, sir, offsets it. And the all-out battle against a fleet of Iron Men adds a nice topping to the whole affair!


Iron Man v1 #107
And, in the end
Fecha: 1978.02| Créditos: Bill Mantlo (Guiones), Keith Pollard (Dibujos)| Edición española: BIBLIOTECA MARVEL: IRON MAN #22.

The final chapter in the Midas skirmish! IM battles his own remote-controlled armor! Jack of Hearts! A Marianne Rodgers-Tony Stark relationship recap! And the last gasp of….Midas? (Nah — we know Kurt B. is bringing him back!) Art note: Keith Pollard is definitely a step down from George T.


Iron Man v1 #108
Growing pains
Fecha: 1978.03| Créditos: Bill Mantlo (Guiones), Carmine Infantino (Dibujos)| Edición española: BIBLIOTECA MARVEL: IRON MAN #22.

IM, Yellowjacket and Jack of Hearts deal with post-Midas events (like, reverting those turned to gold back to normal!). This, and the Growing Man returns! Below-par art again.

Sojourners through space
Fecha: 1978.05| Créditos: Bill Mantlo (Guiones), Keith Pollard (Dibujos)| Edición española: BIBLIOTECA MARVEL: IRON MAN #22.

IM and Jack of Hearts battle the Rigellian Colonizers for the life of a planet…? Featuring: the Punisher (no, not him — Galactus’ tough-guy!)! A pretty cool storyline despite below-par artwork. Extra repulsor for the IM and J. of H. schematics/summaries on pages 22-23!


Iron Man v1 #111
The man, the metal and the mayhem
Fecha: 1978.06| Créditos: Bill Mantlo (Guiones), Keith Pollard (Dibujos)| Edición española: BIBLIOTECA MARVEL: IRON MAN #22.

Iron Man and Jack of Hearts are caught in an intergalactic battle between the little big-headed dudes from Rigel and the animal guys from Wundagore. I thought this whole story to be LAME !!! The artwork’s not too bad, but if you never read it, you won’t miss a thing.


Iron Man v1 #112
Moon wars
Fecha: 1978.07| Créditos: Bill Mantlo (Guiones), Keith Pollard (Dibujos)| Edición española: BIBLIOTECA MARVEL: IRON MAN #22.

Iron Man and ‘ol Jack of Hearts team up with the Knights of Wundergore against the Rigellian Colonizers! The (Galactus) Punisher is dispatched to Earth and only IM can thwart him! Whoever «A.» Alacala is, his inks definitely help Pollard (who’s lame).


Iron Man v1 #113
The horn of the Unicorn
Fecha: 1978.08| Créditos: Bill Mantlo (Guiones), Keith Pollard, Herb Trimpe (Dibujos)| Edición española: BIBLIOTECA MARVEL: IRON MAN #22, Marvel Gold. Iron Man: A la merced de mis amigos (Panini).

Yep — the good ‘ol Unicorn is back, the pawn of some «Other!» The action’s pretty decent, although Trimpe’s figures are always too stiff. Rubenstein helps him out on this.


Iron Man v1 #114
The menace of Arsenal
Fecha: 1978.09| Créditos: Bill Mantlo (Guiones), Keith Giffen (Dibujos)| Edición española: BIBLIOTECA MARVEL: IRON MAN #22, Marvel Gold. Iron Man: A la merced de mis amigos (Panini).

The Avengers guest star as Unicorn gets free and unleashes the menace of … Arsenal! Oops, the title already says that! Whoever Keith Griffin and Bruce «D.» are («Bruce D.??»), they do a very decent job with the art chores.


Iron Man v1 #115
Betrayal
Fecha: 1978.10| Créditos: Bill Mantlo (Guiones), John jr. Romita (Dibujos)| Edición española: BIBLIOTECA MARVEL: IRON MAN #23, Marvel Gold. Iron Man: A la merced de mis amigos (Panini).

IM tries to get to the bottom of the Unicorn mystery (the «Other»). Cool sequence with the «memory extractor» used on the ‘Corn. And the title regards … Madame Masque!! The Ani-Men show up, too! (Does this mean Count Nefaria isn’t too far behind??) Oh yeah — J.R. Jr. is finally on art! Woo-hoo!


Iron Man v1 #116
Anguish, once removed

Iron Man has to stop Soviet fighter jets from downing the S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier! He also has to figure how to stop S.H.I.E.L.D. from taking over Stark International!! Great moment: The splash page (pg. 15) is a true classic! HUH? Dept.: Why would the Russians launch an ICBM at the helicarrier?? Don’t the «I» and «C» of ICBM stand for «Inter-Continental??» Oops.


Iron Man v1 #120
The old man and the sea prince
Fecha: 1979.03| Créditos: David Michelinie, Bob Layton (Guiones), John jr. Romita (Dibujos)| Edición española: BIBLIOTECA MARVEL: IRON MAN #23, Marvel Gold. Iron Man: El demonio en una botella (Panini).

It’s IM vs. Namor, the Sub-Mariner! Great action towards the end of the ish — as IM’s armor malfunctions underwater! Who’s this «Mr. Hammer» guy? Perspective Alert: What’s the deal with that plane on page 6??

A ruse by any other name

Hey, anyone remember Tales of Suspense #39? This issue sure looks familiar!! Yes, it’s one of those «flashback» issues — but with David and Bob at the helm, it’s done well! Bonus points: Infantino’s/Layton’s awesome splash page 27!


Iron Man v1 #123

Demon in a bottle

Tony Stark gets controlling interest of Stark International back from Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. Later, Iron Man fights the Dreadnought. Overall, the story fits in the continuity of the series.

The digital devil
Fecha: 1980.01| Créditos: David Michelinie, Bob Layton (Guiones), Bob Layton (Dibujos)| Edición española: BIBLIOTECA MARVEL: IRON MAN #25, Marvel Gold. Iron Man: El héroe interior (Panini).

The hero within
Fecha: 1980.04| Créditos: David Michelinie, Bob Layton (Guiones), Jerry Bingham (Dibujos)| Edición española: BIBLIOTECA MARVEL: IRON MAN #25, Marvel Gold. Iron Man: El héroe interior (Panini).

A tip of the hat to the classic Avengers tale where Ant-Man journeyed inside the android Vision’s innards. This time, Ant-Man (Scott Lang, not Hank Pym) must venture inside IM’s armor, which has frozen stiff after a climactic battle with the Hulk!


Iron Man v1 #134
The challenge
Fecha: 1980.05| Créditos: David Michelinie, Bob Layton (Guiones), Jerry Bingham (Dibujos)| Edición española: BIBLIOTECA MARVEL: IRON MAN #25, Marvel Gold. Iron Man: El héroe interior (Panini).

Well, the artwork is great as usual with Layton doing the finished art. The story opens with Iron Man running his armor through some test since the recent control of Justin Hammer over the armor. Most of the story involves Tony getting together with the ever lovely Bethany Cabe at dinner. The story ends with the Titanium Man landing in NYC looking for IM!!!


Iron Man v1 #135
Return of the hero
Fecha: 1980.06| Créditos: David Michelinie, Bob Layton (Guiones), Jerry Bingham (Dibujos)| Edición española: BIBLIOTECA MARVEL: IRON MAN #25, Marvel Gold. Iron Man: El héroe interior (Panini).

Iron Man v1 #138
Facades and ruses
Fecha: 1980.09| Créditos: David Michelinie, Bob Layton (Guiones), Bob Layton (Dibujos)| Edición española: BIBLIOTECA MARVEL: IRON MAN #26, Marvel Gold. Iron Man: El héroe interior (Panini).

Madame Masque! Spymaster!! Dreadnoughts!!! The plot thickens from last issue! Downside: Palmer’s inks are too sloppy.


Iron Man v1 #139
Facades, ruses and masques
Fecha: 1980.10| Créditos: David Michelinie, Bob Layton (Guiones), Bob Layton (Dibujos)| Edición española: BIBLIOTECA MARVEL: IRON MAN #26, Marvel Gold. Iron Man: El héroe interior (Panini).

Whiplash has a new name, and he’s come a-calling on Stark International’s head of security, Vic Martinelli. Lots of subplots get their start this ish, and so does a nasty fire at the Stark corporate headquarters

Of all people, ‘ol Doc Doom needs some components from Stark International — but Tony says «Negative!» But, of course, Vic V.D. won’t accept that answer! Condescension Dept.: Doom referring to IM as «Errand Boy.»


Iron Man v1 #150
Knightmare

Spores
Fecha: 1982.04| Créditos: David Michelinie, Alan Kupperberg (Guiones), Alan Kupperberg (Dibujos)| Edición española: IRON MAN (v1) #13, Marvel Gold. Iron Man: El otro lado de la locura (Panini).

Wacky spore-like entities threaten some alien, so the alien whisks Iron Man up to its ship to help out. It only gets two repulsors because of a most-cool Jack Abel/Bob Layton IM pin-up at the end of the ish!


Iron Man v1 #158
Moms
Fecha: 1982.05| Créditos: Dennis O’Neil (Guiones), Carmine Infantino (Dibujos)| Edición española: IRON MAN (v1) #14, Marvel Gold. Iron Man: El Enemigo Interior  (Panini).

Ouch. This story must’ve really been thought up quickly! Some fat kid genius experiments on his mom…and Tony Stark stops him! Maybe a bit more fun than eating dry toast.

When strikes Diablo
Fecha: 1982.06| Créditos: Roger McKenzie (Guiones), Paul Smith (Dibujos)| Edición española: IRON MAN (v1) #14-15, Marvel Gold. Iron Man: El Enemigo Interior  (Panini).

IM battles Diablo (what else?). Paul Smith is a heck of an artist, but he doesn’t do Shellhead very well. However, there is a very cool battle scene where IM has to battle his old armors which have been animated by the master of alchemy!


Iron Man v1 #160
A cry of beasts
Fecha: 1982.07| Créditos: Dennis O’Neil (Guiones), Steve Ditko (Dibujos)| Edición española: IRON MAN (v1) #15, Marvel Gold. Iron Man: El Enemigo Interior  (Panini).

IM has to take on the Serpent Squad (they’re out to diss Stark for a competitor) who’ve busted open a zoo! Um, yeah, whatever. Ditko’s Iron Man is absolutely dismal. (Sorry Steve, but I do like your early Spidey!).

A.I.M. highjacks a submarine and Tony Stark is onboard! Can he change to Iron Man? Can Moonknight save him? Sub-par artwork inhibits enjoyment.

Fecha: 1982.09| Créditos: Dennis O’Neil (Guiones), Mike Vosburg (Dibujos)| Edición española: IRON MAN (v1) #16-17, Marvel Gold. Iron Man: El Enemigo Interior  (Panini).

The insidious influence of Obadiah Stane is felt for the first time when one of his undercover agents distributes some harmless-looking headsets to the Stark International staff. Forget «Paul is dead»– this backmasking is going to result in wholesale slaughter! Not a bad story despite mediocre art, inaccurate, out-of-nowhere WW II vintage aircraft guest appearances, and the hokey «Walkman of Death» plot device


Iron Man v1 #163
Knight’s errand
Fecha: 1982.10| Créditos: Dennis O’Neil (Guiones), Luke McDonnell (Dibujos)| Edición española: IRON MAN (v1) #17, Marvel Gold. Iron Man: El Enemigo Interior  (Panini).

Enter: Indries Moomji! Obadiah Stane operates behind the scenes to begin his dismantling of Tony Stark’s life! This, and Shellhead battles Stane’s Knight in New Mexico! McDonnell’s art would be much better if Mitchell wasn’t inking it
