Iron Man is Born!

Anthony Stark is a weapons manufacturer working of the U.S. government. The U.S. is mired in a war in Vietnam where there heavy arms and armaments cannot be brought to bear on Communist forces who use the jungle terrain to their advantage. Stark however sees miniaturization using transistor technology as the way to go.

The Army flies Stark to Vietnam for the initial combat test of his new weapons. Unfortunately, Stark falls prey to a Vietcong booby trap that leaves him a prisoner of the local Communist warlord. With shrapnel moving toward his heart, and only days to live, he is provided with tools and materials and ordered to build high tech weaponry for the V.C.

With the help of a captured Chinese physicist Yinsen, he builds a powerful suit of armor that not only keeps him alive, but is equipped with a variety of tools and weaponry.

Now able to free himself from captivity, Iron Man will stop at nothing to liberate the Vietnamese village and end the Communist warlord's reign of terror.
