Blurry images from eBay jpegs, today, of Tales_of_Suspense #77 (with images from ToS#70
on top of each snapshot pic):
Blurry is better than nothing, eh. Here's the wikia entry:
In a... wait it... nutshellhead...
pg1 Mandarin threw Tony's suitcase with is suit of armor in the moat and claims to be creator of Ultimo.
pg2 Mandarin brags of secretly building Ultimo in a dead volcano by combo of mysticism and mech.
pg3 Mandarin claims Ultimo absorbed more power than he calculated and that it's become an "artifical life" form.
pg4 Mandarin escaped the destruction caused during Ultimo's birth.
pg5 Mandarin monitors as Ultimor wreaks havoc on Red Troops then Power Blasts Stark with a ring as he snuck off to recover his suitcase.
pg6 Stark intentionally falls down exit stairs and the overconfident Mandarin leaves him to suffer his fate not realizing Tony's chest plate protects him from the tumble.
pg7 Ultimo approaches and Tony jumps in the moat to get his armor.
pg8 Ultimo engages another cadre of Red Troops and Tony is unseen underwater.
pg9 The living behemoth fires disintigrating eye beams at the troops as Iron Man arrives on the scene.
p10 Shellhead engages the giant as he strategizes (with marvelous use of thought balloons!).
p11 Meanwhile in Washington, a Sen. Harrington subplot continues as he closes down Stark Industries. And the cliffhanger panel shows that Ultimo holds IM in his deadly grip!
It was a fun adventure from forever ago.
