The Stronghold of Dr. Strange!

While showing off his powers for the patients at a hospital for orphaned children, Iron Man falls under the mental influence of "Dr. Strange", who commands him to break Strange out of prison. The hypnotized hero obeys, regaining his senses only after Strange is long gone.

From the safety of island fortress, complete with it's own force field, Strange issues an ultimatum: the nations of the world must surrender to him within 24 hours, or he will destroy the planet. Iron Man sneaks underwater and manages to find Strange. Doctor Strange takes away the electricity powering Iron Man's battery, almost killing him, but then Strange's daughter gives Iron Man a torch. He then uses the batteries to pwoer up, and Strange flees since Iron Man is at full strength.

DR. STRANGE VS IRON MAN!..No, not that Dr. Strange. 0

Spoilers ahead. This time Iron Man actually faces a real "Super villain" and he is kind of awesome. Which doesn't mean his plan makes that much sense but I guess it is the thought that counts. What happens is this, Dr Strange needs to get out of jail to meet up with his daughter. Why? Just because he wants to see her. Then he takes a turn for the worse and decides to try and take over the worlds because EVIL! Iron Man is actually kind of in the shadow here. Which is odd because he did some cool ...

The Stronghold Of Dr. Strange! 0

The insidious Doctor Strange makes his first appearance in this issue of Tales of Suspense and unfortunately it's a bit of a bum note to start off on. Like a lot of villains thus far in the Marvel canon, motives are sketchy and powers are even more ambiguous. Far from what he would eventually become under the guise of Steve Ditko (though it's popularly thought that this incarnation has nothing to do with the actual Dr. Strange created by Steve,) Lee and Kirby's Strange is something of a mad scie...
