Iron Man v1 #55, 1972 - Thanos and Drax the Destroyer make their first appearances, both encountering shell-head for the first time. The story artwork, Jim Starlin's first full contribution to the title, displays not only his youth but his inexperience as well. Several pages are drawn crudely and many figures mis-proportioned in smaller panels. Other pages are simplistic and hurried. And yet, Starlin also shows his potential, particularly in two full splash pages and several carefully planned panel sequences. Compare the interiors to his more finely polished (thanks to inker Joe Sinnott) cover design. Mentor and Eros (later known as Starfox) and also appear for the first time, though the latter is in only 1 panel. This Mike Freidrich story was later reprinted in Life of Captain Marvel #1. This is 2 of 6 Iron Man issues by Starlin. /// key 1st appearance Thanos, Drax, Mentor, 1st cameo appearance Starfox / original page
