Iron Man is Born!

Out with the old, in with the new. March 1963 saw the end of the premature Incredible Hulk series, and in turn envisioned a brand new character by the name ofIron Man. Of course by now in 2011, everyone and their grandmother know whoIron Man is, but as far as origin stories go, this one was a pretty solid beginning for Stark.
