#7 HEARTBEATEN

Issue #243
Cover Artist: Bob Layton

From Marvel Wikia:
"Tony Stark is rushed to the hospital after being shot by stalker Kathy Dare. The bullet has ruptured his spine and he has lost consciousness. Almost immediately, reporters flock to the hospital hoping to catch a glimpse of America’s wealthiest bachelor. Rhodey is present and threatens several reporters who attempt to crowd him.

Kathy Dare has been arrested, but seems oblivious to the seriousness of her crime. Bert Hindel is appointed as her attorney. Almost immediately he begins preparing a defense suggesting that Kathy is a victim of physical and emotional abuse. Hindel calls a press conference and begins painting Kathy as a portrait of a victim on national television.

Inside the hospital, a special visitor’s ward has been set up for family and friends. Rhodey is watching the Hindel interview and smashes the television with his boot. Mrs. Arbogast, ever the stoic pillar of patience and virtue, calms Rhodey down. But she can only maintain her cool for so long. She finds a reporter dressed up as a janitor trying to sneak into the ICU to snap pictures of Tony Stark. Mrs. A smashes his camera and threatens to shove his janitorial squeegee “where it’ll do the most good?.

Tony’s confidante Rae LaCoste hires Dr. Charles Ingwe; the world’s most accredited microsurgeon to fly out to California to attend to Tony. As Tony’s life hangs in the balance, Marcy Pearson, the Stark Enterprises Public Relations rep learns that in an event of an emergency, she has been selected to run Stark Enterprises in the case of Tony’s absence. Marcy asks Jim Rhodes if perhaps Iron Man can make a press statement to try and keep the S.E. image looking favorable.

Many eyes are glued to their televisions as the likes of Bryant Gumbel reports on the minute-by-minute status of Anthony Stark. Such witnesses include: Justin Hammer, Tigra and Ant-Man.

After many intense hours, Dr. Ingwe emerges from the ER and addresses the press. He informs the nation that Tony Stark shall live – however, he will never be able to walk ever again."

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.
http://marvel.wikia.com/Iron_Man_Vol_1_121

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
