My only reason for reading this series is because I clearly have some form of autism that compels me to know EVERYTHING about a character I want to read later stuff of. In this case I want to read the later Iron Man stories about alcoholic Tony Stark. I'm currently reading this, Tales to Astonish, Spider-Man, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Avengers, and Daredevil. All of these are written, during this period, by Stan Lee. Most writers do the whole narrating the action in panels. Some writers have the character broadcast each action. Stan does both. My big complaint with this series is that he does both. Each panel is so cluttered with narration it looks like Stan and Tony are trying to yell over one another. It's disorienting and clusters the artwork. That's not mentioning how redundant it is.

"When first introduced, Pepper Potts was a pot-nosed, freckle-faced imp." Wow, go to hell, sixties view of women!

That aside, the first really good fight against the Mandarin, although he still hasn't really named and explained his rings that much now. One seems to control all of his gadgets, one is an desintegrator-ray...and I really can't remember much else. The ending, where we only see the Mandarin rushing around his castle, always a step behind Iron Man  was a bit rushed, but it only means their real fight still looms in the future...
