Iron Man Gets a Little Help in 90’s By the Numbers with Black Widow

90's By the Numbers: Iron Man #316

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!
