Marvel Milestones: Iron Man, Ant-Man & Captain America

 MMIA   (Marvel, 2005)

™ and © 1941, 1962, 1963, and 2005 Marvel Characters, Inc.

Everyone knows what Iron Man, Ant-Man, and Captain America are like now; each has decades of comic book history behind him, covering multiple titles. But how many people recall how these characters got their start? That’s a bit trickier, because the origins of these characters date back to the 1940s (Captain America) and 1960s (Iron Man and Ant-Man)—and aside from Captain America, did not even have their own titles. This collection gives readers young and old the chance to see how these characters found their inner hero.

Included are full-color reprints of Henry Pym’s first experiment with a shrinking formula in Tales to Astonish #27, Tony Stark’s South Vietnam trip that produced his original Iron Man armor in Tales of Suspense #39 and #40, and the secret government project that created Captain America back in Captain America Comics #1.
