    I dunno. I do think that 40 is something of a retcon of the previous story, in that the origin story implies that Stark has become a mechanical version of Thing: someone who can never take off his armor or he will die. 40 retcons that into just being a chestplate. But outright his real origin? I'm very iffy about that theory. It doesn't have enough details to feel like an origin story. It feels more like a summary for new readers followed by a new adventure, with maybe a bit of retconning thrown in.

Yes but did Kirby illustrate it before Heck's #39 with the belief it was going to be the origin/first story. That's what I'm meaning.
