Origin & 1st app of Iron Man (Tony Stark); Jack Kirby cover; Steve Ditko art; COMIC BOOK IMPACT rating of 10 (CBI)Tony Stark makes his first appearance in this classic collectible from 1963, in which the playboy munitions tycoon is wounded and taken captive while helping the U.S. government fight the Vietcong—before escaping by constructing an armored battle suit. (The outfit also slows the approach of some shrapnel inching toward Stark's heart.) Iron Man would go on to launch the start of Marvel Studios in 2008, with Robert Downey Jr.'s popular portrayal keeping fans speculating that the character might return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
