Tales of Suspence -39.jpg

Tales of Suspense is a comic book series published by Marvel Comics from 1959-1968. Although it started out as a science fiction/horror anthology, the emerging popularity of superheroes led to such characters being featured regularly, eventually pushing out the non-superhero suspense stories. Iron Man first appeared in #39, and was a regular feature until the series ended. Captain America appeared in the Iron Man story in #58 and had his own feature from #59 until the series ended with #99, after which Tales of Suspense was retitled Captain America.


Captured by terrorists, Tony Stark together with physicist Ho Yinsen, build a suit of armor to aid Stark in his chest injury and to escape captivity from the terrorists.
