Details from TOS 39 or IM 285-288 (Iron Man)

Post by wolframbane » Sun Jan 11, 2009 2:51 pm

I am trying to place some of the events of Iron Man's early history. The OHOTMU mentions that he was 21 when he inherited Stark Industries. A note on the "Original Marvel Universe" website mentions that when he became Iron Man, "Tony Stark begins his sixth year as head of Stark Industries."

If anyone here who has access to TOS 39 (when he becomes Iron Man) or IM 285-288 (his childhood explained), could they verify if it was his sixth year as head of Stark Industries. Or is anyone aware of some other issue this may be referenced in?

I just looked through the reprint of TOS39 in the Fantastic Firsts trade, no mention of Stark's age, or how long he had been running the company.

The IM 285-288 issues only have one little bit of info, in 288 on page 7 of the second story Stark says "I was just a kind in my twenties." Referring to when he took over the company.

I also checked the "Iron Man: The Iron Age" mini series by Kurt Busiek, no mention of Stark's age or how long until he became Iron Man.

I could have overlooked something, it is a bit late in the evening here.
Only three weeks on the job and already I live for seeing his forehead turn that shade of pink.
