I have this one -silly beyond words, especially how Stark played the "arse" to "motivate" Johnny (way over the top assumption of Johnny being the irresponsible younger hero type).

I think I put a post on this awhile back here - the page with what happened to some of the Reincarnated Man's victims was pretty morbid for being a comic book from that time - most violence was usually "whitewashed" - no overt gore, blood, etc., just the occasional flying tooth perhaps, unless you were reading the vampirella/adult horror mags of the day - but here you had a victim being rolled under by a steam roller, another poor guy being buried under burning hot cement, and a girl electrocuted by a washing machine into a heap of ashes....sheesh!! And here I thought today's comics were overly visual in depicting more realistic levels of violence...glad I didn't buy this one as a kid!

And for a villain with no super powers except for a pop-gun, he's able to kick Iron Man to the ground, leaving him a helpless target to shoot at until the Torch comes in and saves the day.
