Behind the suit

Letter to the editor

To the editor:

Responding to the letter about Iron Man’s armor (Daily Variety, April 28) , since I’m the guy who created ol’ Shell Head for Marvel years ago, I can testify that he originally fashioned the armor so that its electronics would keep his heart beating due to a near fatal wound he incurred during the Korean War. Later, the suit of armor enabled him to become one of the world’s greatest superheroes.
