  Man... a good person actually dying for real. This is kind of a big deal. I guess the closest before this point was Foswell?

Can't think of anyone else...

Uhm, first Crimson Dynamo (Anton Vanko).
Anyway, I love seeing Iron Man fight Titanium Man with such fury and vengeance, no holding back. Also it is nice that the flashback story of first Crimson Dynamo was so short, in previous comics it usually took way longer.

  That death was a real surprise.

  I'm not sure why, but I always love a good three way brawl.

  Something tells me it's a good thing Tony's rich, so he can afford all the baggage he's going to have over the next little while. On the bright side it appears that being afraid to be Iron Man will not be one of those issues.

  What a surprising twist. Not what I expected and a bit heart wrenching.

You also have Una (Mar-Vell's girlfriend).

  Extra star awarded for that surprise death. No wonder Tony hits the bottle with everyone close to him either dying off or leaving.

  I wonder if the street Rafferty swung into was called Baker Street. Anyone who gets that reference gets a blood clot in their brain and shrapnel in their heart.

  4 stars for the Titanium Man killing off that annoying Janice Cord!!! Bring on Marianne Rodgers!!!

Cover Me - Great cover, but Crimson Dynamo looks a little off...

Great Black Hope - Eddie March will be back...

City To City - @MattzLadd: Bravo Sir, bravo!!

Capitalist Lies - The Narrator claims that Alex's version of events is slanted. Even though that's exactly what happened! Iron Man tricked Pro Vanko into defecting!!!

Washed Up - @sewixo: Although, I wish they would've explained how the Titanium Man was saved after the events in TOS #94!?

Boob Tube - Why would Iron Man listen to what a Soap Opera has to say...(p13,p2) :)

Team Red - Crimson Dynamo was in the right! If only Iron Man would've stopped and listened to him and Janice. Then she wouldn't have been killed!! This is all Iron Man's fault!!!

Fishy - This is the third time that the Titanium Man has ended up in water!

  ... man ... that was tragic. I was not expecting her to die. The silver age is definitely beginning to come to an end.

  I thought they were doing a good job making me care about the guy they only introduced last issue, then they do that! Wow Marvel, just wow.

  I didn't see that one coming, either. Pretty sad, and after she and Tony were reconnecting.

On the other hand, I'd thought Eddie was created as a sacrificial lamb; that is, they intended to kill him off during this arc. Glad to see that didn't happen.

3 stars. Another woman gets consigned to the refrigerator, but not many can claim to motivate two different guys.

  I don't give out too many 5 star ratings, but this deserves it.

What a heart-wrenching ending. I like Janice. I want her back.

  Without needing his omnipresent chest plate, Tony and Janice could have made a go of it. Her death was a sad surprise. Despite having read comics for 25+ years, I'd never heard of Eddie March, so I expected him to die. I dropped my guard after he pulled through.

Adding to a good story line, we got to see 3 guys in power armor duking it out. If there's something more Iron Man than that, I don't know what it is.

  Wow! First five star rating I've handed out in a while. Another Iron Man issue with loads going on but with enough time for some really good character development. Janice's death was a huge surprise to me - which is rare, really, when a lot of us know the general gist of the main story arcs for Marvel's major characters. Made the issue feel a lot more worthwhile!
