It’s time to face facts, true believers – the ’90s were awesome. The pouches were plentiful, the costumes were impractical, and Marvel Universe dentists made a fortune correcting damages caused by perpetually gritted teeth. Thanks to the power of nostalgia, though, what would once be considered extremely embarrassing can now be called extremely awesome!
With that in mind, we’ve pulled a Marvel comic from the not-so-modern era and broken it down, one choice fact at a time! This week we’re singling out IRON MAN (1968) #316 by Len Kaminski and Tom Morgan. Here’s “Triangle” by the numbers!
46 word balloons translated from Russian
19 energy blasts – 2 from Iron Man, 3 from Black Widow, 6 from Crimson Dynamo, and 8 from Titanium Man
6 drawings of Black Widow pulling off one impossible flip move
5 high impact collisions between suits of armor
2 metal suits in deep crouching positions
1 Natasha that has just had it with Tony Stark’s shenanigans
