Manic Monday--Iron Man Really Began In Western Comics!!

I'm pretty sure that Tony Stark read this comic as a youth:

And since the subtitle clearly tells us that these are "real stories from the plains," well, I think you should immediately go to your teachers and complain about them not teaching this history!!

And, yeah, the premise really is that simple: a buncha thugs just strap on some iron armor and rob stuff...




And their reign of terror continues unabated (mainly because no one can figure out to shoot them in the arms or legs):


Well, eventually they will get their comeuppance...


...and finally, someone figures out...

SHOOT THEM IN THE LEGS!!!

And like Tony Stark, these guys get mighty whiny when beaten:

And..

Someone had better warn the Superior Iron Man about that...

From Dead-Eye Western Comics #11 (1951)
