#1 REQUIESAT... AND REVENGE!

Issue #216
Cover Artists: Mark Bright, Bob Layton

There's over 350 issues of Iron Man out there, and this is clearly the best cover. Just the sheer dynamic of this cover is enough to make you say "wow".

So what makes it so great? Quite Simply, it's a page turner!

When you're walking in your local comic book store, a cover like this will make you stop and peruse the book, which is always a good sign.

Right off the bat this image makes you ask yourself,
"How are they going to get out of that"? 
"Why are they falling from space?"
"Why are there 2 Iron Man armors?"

I mentioned before how difficult it can be to get 2 superheroes on the same cover, but once again the artists got it right. Kudos to Mark Bright and Bob Layton for making the best Iron Man cover of all time!

(It also helps that the story is excellent.)

From Marvel Wikia:
"Tony Stark and Rhodey don their Iron Man armor for the final battle against the hordes of A.I.M.! For one person this battle will end in death! "

Do you have a favorite Iron Man cover? Post a comment below and let us know!

I think people would've been less disappointed if you'd called it "top 10 Iron Man covers I paid less than $3 for." I can pick 10 better covers out of Tales of Suspense alone.

I think you made a lot of great picks. Demon in a Bottle is my favorite, but none of us would come up with identical lists. Practically any of your choices would be vying for 2nd on my list. Great job!

@ Le....

No problem man, I understand.

Any ways those links I posted all work and they show the covers I am referring to. But all covers are from the early 100's of Invincible Iron Man.

@SeekerMuadib: LOL! HeroClix World is not a forum! I actually disable links right now because it avoids a lot of spam problems! But I will take your suggestion under advisement. In the meantime, I hope you like the new AJAX controlled comment-posting system!

Ugh...sorry I was hoping those would appear as links to click on to view the image.

Forum fail.

My absolute favorite cover of all time of Iron Man. It just shows Tonies vulnerability.
http://marvel.com/comics/issue/9348/iron_man_1968_118

For me this is the iconic image of Iron Man that I grew up with.
http://marvel.wikia.com/Iron_Man_Vol_1_126

Just a personal favroite with Spymaster ripping the armor apart with his nunchuks.
http://marvel.wikia.com/Iron_Man_Vol_1_117

I liked this one becauyse it shows the strength Tony has while in the armor. Most covers show him shooting something or flying. Simple I liked seeing him bending the barrle like this.

And lastly.....it is a huge part of Tonies past and is still to this day talked about or mentioned.
http://marvel.wikia.com/Iron_Man_Vol_1_128

Yes all of these are from a certain time period in Tonyies history. But this was the era of Iron Man that I grew up on. So yes to me these are some of the more memorable comic book covers to me. I am sure all of you can toss in plenty more of your own.

i love the one with the 2 armors that is alegit iron man cover and i love it

I agree with you guys. Loads of great covers out there. Even if this list was only restricted to vol 1 there are still plenty of alternatives!
Iron Man 3 wasn't that bad!

I'm with JokerShark on this one. With all the possible covers I would have thought at least one Hulk, Thor, Cap, Hawkeye or another Avenger. And really no "Demon in a Bottle" cover? They made a statue of it, but not worthy of a cover?

Posted by: ShawnBesaw on 5/14/2013 2:29:59 PM
Either Iron Man comics have some of the worst cover artists in comics, or that was just a pretty lame list.. No Mandarin? No Titanium Man? No War Machine? I could probably pick a number at random and come up with some better cover issues.. Sorry Iron Man, but it looks like your cover art is as bad as your movie sequels
