Iron Man #7

Melvin Potter became a very interestingly layered MU supervillain character since Frank Miller used him in his classic DD run. [Equally layered Kallark stole some of Mel's thunder since his Shi'ar introduction.] Classic Gladiator was mostly a fun superthug before all that. Like this ish - especially tying him into that Maggia/Nefaria storyline. He's lost some of his appeal since all the heroes have gotten unlimited upgrade upon upgrades - especially considering him for an Iron Man rematch. Not that a good writer couldn't come up with a satisfying story scenario.

Do you have memories of this battle? Or look forward to eventually reading it?
