All true. Speaking of this era, it's interesting another character has a facial secret, Yorgon Tykkio. Yet before we found out what this was, he was suddenly killed with no explanation of the mystery around him. Was he some other character, a cyborg, or what? Or was it tied to his interest in Dr Atlanta's work? Michelinie & Layton had an exceptional run on Iron Man, but they wasted a great character here.
I remember him. The climax of Obadiah Stane's plan was one of the first Iron Man stories that I read as a kid. I absolutely loved the Silver Centurion armor.
The Marvel Appendix writer has the same reaction than you.
David Michelinie was not cool on this one. Not only the storyline of the Tykkio brothers was left unresolved but he turned Cly Erwin into an hysterical homicidal maniac just before killing her. Cly was not my favorite character but it didn't make any sense at all.
I think that Denny O'Neil run was quite interesting. O'Neil is often remembered as one of the most important Batman scribes ever but, when he was an Iron Man writer, he created Obadiah Stane and gave James Rhodes the opportunity to become Iron Man for the first time...
