We knew it would happen sooner or later, DC has revealed images of Dr. John Henry Irons in his suited up alter ego we're all familiar with.
In ACTION COMICS #2, when Lex Luthor managed to capture Superman and was
torturing conducting tests on him, John Henry Irons was outraged. Irons was working with the government on the "Steel Soldier" program in order to create a way for soldiers to safely go into battle with firepower that would give them an edge over the opposition.
Seeing what they were doing to Superman was enough to make Irons resign. In the end, it was John Corben that volunteered to proceed with the experiments without Irons' supervision.
