Trapped By The Red Barbarian

After learning Tony Stark has developed a new and powerful weapon, the Red Barbarian plots to steal the plans by sending in The Actor, a master of disguise with a rubbery face.

Not only does the Actor succeed in stealing the plans, he also discovers Iron Man's true identity, a secret which he takes back behind the Iron Curtain. Iron Man manages to trap the Actor, however, and then goes to the Red Barbarian, pretending to be the Actor disguised as Iron Man. He sends the real Actor back then, who is believed to be a traitor.

Trapped By The Red Barbarian! 0

You know, I've been picking on R. Berns for a few issues now, and sure, his dialogue here is just as bad and stilted as ever but the central story here which deals with Yet Another Communist intelligence plot is actually pretty well told. While such plots served as mundane bores when used with characters such asHulk and Thor, Iron Man and Tony Stark seem just right to tackle these nasty Red characters, given that there are enough twists and turns to make the story interesting.
