In this column, Mark Ginocchio from Chasing Amazing takes a look at the gimmick covers from the s and gives his take on whether the comic in question was just a gimmick or whether the comic within the gimmick cover was good. Hence "Gimmick or Good? Oddly enough, around the same time, Marvel did a similar thing with its Avengers anniversary issues — every third comic between received a chromium embossed enhancement. Despite the fact that the two comics are not technically part of the same story arc, the overall plot that was dominating the Iron Man series in late early links the stories together. In , he confronts a villain named Atom Smasher who is revealed to have been disfigured by a chemical accident suffered while working for Stark when the company had been taken over by Stane Enterprises. The government sends in one of its machines, Firepower, to deal with Atom Smasher, which leads to some legitimately funny dialogue and one-liners courtesy of Rhodes. There is one exchange where both War Machine and Firepower are down for the count and Firepower is threatening a beatdown of Rhodes once his system reboots in 14 minutes, when War Machine casually gets up after only six minutes.
Having created a wondrous suit of armor to keep himself alive, Tony Stark has revised it dozens of times, each version with increased capabilities, faster operation, reduced energy usage, and adaptability to the greatest threats the universe has to offer. The amazing storytelling and culture-shaping legacy of Marvel Comics now spans 80 years. Inspired by both iconic Marvel comic books and blockbuster movies from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, these highly detailed 6-inch-scale Legends Series action figures are a perfect tribute to that legacy. Not for children under 3 years. Menu Close. My Cart.
