Why is this comic book valuable?
Tales of Suspense #39 introduced us to some heavy metal by bringing us Iron Man! Once regarded as a Marvel second stringer but no more! Stan Lee worked with fellow scribe Larry Lieber and artists Don Heck and Jack Kirby to flesh out the "Man in the Can". Stan said he purposely wanted to bring Marvel readers a character that was the antithesis of the culture movement in 1963. Anti-war, anti-big business and anti-establishment Stan brought us a billionaire businessman that sold instruments of war to governments just so he could play with the psychology of the dynamic. His Iron Man would morph into the master of all mediums with his success as the central character of the MCU as well as advocationg for the registration of all heroes in 2006's massive crossover event, Civil War. That series itself an inspiration for one of the MCU movies Rest assured at this point, Iron Man isn't going anywhere!
