Thor's Day Hero: The Invincible Iron Man

It's taken me quite a while to get around to press-ganging Iron Man into the Thor's Day heroes, but here is the golden Avenger, better late than never! It's no secret that the last thirty years or so of my life are steeped in comic books and this armored guy was one of my favorite of the solo heroes. Yup, there's been a couple of successful Iron Man movies, a couple of character reboots in the comics, cartoons, and more. Me, I'm talking about the comic book Iron Man of the late 70's to the early 90's. The, "This thing kicks like an Arkansas mule!" Iron Man. The guy who built a big, gray suit in the middle of the Vietnam war to save his own life Iron Man. I could go on and on, but suffice it to say Iron Man is easily a Thor's Day hero.
