"Though My Life Be Forfeit..." Part 2 of 2. Script by Denny O'Neil. Pencils by Luke McDonnell. Inks by Steve Mitchell. Cover by Luke McDonnell and Steve Mitchell. Inside the Mandarin's mainland fortress, the Invincible Iron Man is in dire straits! The ten-ringed super-villain emerged triumphant after their battle last issue and took control of Shell-Head's mind! And now the Mandarin has ordered Rhodey to remove his helmet and slit his own throat! Is the end near for the armored avenger? Fortuitously, Jim gets another splitting headache and it breaks the mind control! And with surprising help from the Chinese air force, Iron Man turns certain defeat into an inspiring victory! When Rhodey at last returns to New York City, Morley Erwin tells him about a massive energy source in Central Park. Iron Man rushes to investigate... and then suddenly disappears! Appearances by Tony Stark and the Radioactive Man. (Notes: Iron Man appears next in the first issue of the Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars (1984) limited series. Sometimes forgotten... it was Jim Rhodes that went to the Beyonder's world as Iron Man and not Tony Stark. The Mandarin returns in Iron Man 241.) 32 pages. Cover price $0.60.
