Characters Appearing: Iron Man
Iron Man #32
Issue(s): Iron Man #32
...a woman leaving her boyfriend and the ghetto...
...and Iron Man's encounter with an alien robot scout.
The robot claims to be an emissary looking to set up a trading colony, and he's put off by Iron Man's repulsors-first attitude...
...and later falls in love with the girl and takes some bullets for her.
An off beat but enjoyable story.
Quality Rating: C
Chronological Placement Considerations: Squeezing in a bunch of Iron Man issues after Avengers #82.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: Marvel Masterworks: Invincible Iron Man vol. 7
Points for attempting something different but it was too compressed and contrived to be effective. Particularly a metal skinned alien who can't take a bullet. And that girl fell in love with the metal guy awfully darn quick.
I think the appendix or somewhere tried to speculate this metal alien was of the same caliber as Marvex, a golden age hero with Timely.
