“Justin’s Jabber” – Back Issue Comics! 6/14/19

Batman and Iron Man are kind of the same dude when you think about it.

Both billionaire playboys slash crime fighters who have no inherent superhuman abilities besides their wealth and intellect.

The differences between the two are superficial at best.
One has a mustache and one doesn’t.

Oh! Except in The Dark Knight Returns when Bruce Wayne briefly wore a mustache.

Remember Bruce Wayne’s Tom Selleck mustache?
That was a sweet mustache!


Tales Of Suspense #39, first appearance of Iron Man, CBCS 7.5 (Very Fine Minus), $23,995.


Tales Of Suspense #45, first appearance of Pepper Potts and Happy Hogan, Very Good Minus (3.5), $150.



Batman #357, first appearance of Jason Todd and early cameo appearance of Killer Croc, Very Fine/Fine (7.0), $75.



Batman #386, first appearance of Black Mask, Very Fine (8.0), $100.


Batman even kind of wears a low end Iron Man suit when he fights Superman and the end of Dark Knight Returns.

Classic scene. Aged Batman defeats Superman with the help of his Bat-Iron-Man armor and a pair of able bodied assists from a teen aged girl with a slingshot driving a Bat-Tank and a one armed Oliver Queen with a kryptonite arrow.

You’ve gotta love comics, folks. You’ve just gotta love ’em!
