IRON MAN (1968) (#1-332) (INVINCIBLE IRON MAN)(MARVEL) #87 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Iron Man #87
"The Icy Hand of Death!" is written by Bill Mantlo and drawn by George Tuska and Vince Colletta. A hallmark of Marvel villains is that they always come back in one form or another. Witness the hapless Jack Frost who back in Tales of Suspense #45 tried to steal from Stark Enterprises in order to build his personal wealth. Captured by Iron Man, the villain (whose real name was Gregor Shapanka) was sent to prison. Yet, somehow while there, the super-villain was able to rebuild the apparatus that gave him his cold-based powers and emerged as Blizzard.

Swiftly taking over Stark's Long Island plant, Blizzard slows Iron Man's heartbeat to a crawl with intense cold. He also holds as hostage Pepper Hogan, the wife of Tony Stark's best friend. Hearing this news, Happy Hogan flies from his hospital bed (where he was recovering from injuries recently sustained while transformed into the Freak) to help his wife and best friend. Blizzard flees with a Stark invention he plans to make a fortune on. But the Golden Avenger has more than one trick up his sleeve and soon he's in hot pursuit of his frigid foe. Over the icy waters of Long Island Sound, a titanic battle ensues. Don't miss this one!
