IRON MAN #142-143 (1981)

Outer Space Armor.  Michelinie and Layton went through a series of “new” suits of armor during this run.  It was just one of the ways they kept the book surprising and fun.


Tony is approached by SHIELD, who want his help looking into some devastating radiation damage on Earth.  Tony traces it to a space station owned by Roxxon Inc. but, during his investigation, the station is damaged and all traces of Roxxon are wiped.

He also meets Sunturion, a Roxxon employee named Arthur Dearborn who is protecting the space station and appears to die in battle.

Also, Tony is getting sentimental.
