Marvel Comics: Then and 'Now'

Marvel Comics is reimagining its popular characters with its Marvel Now initiative, which debuts throughout November. Before going forward, take a look back at the characters origins. In the original "Iron Man," Tony Stark wasn't always the wisecracking Robert Downey Junior character from recent movies. His suit was rather clunky in 1963's "Tales of Suspense" No. 39, and he fought against Vietnam during the early days of that war.
