Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with 75 years of superhero comics behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite characters in our continuing video series. You think you know comics? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!

This week we are taking a look at everyone's favorite genius billionaire playboy substance abuser, Iron Man! In this video, we will cover such pressing questions as whether or not he has lost his mind, whether he can see or if he is blind, and whether he can walk at all, and several other equally interesting facts.

Show notes:

  • Iron Man's earliest adventures are collected in this handy paperback.
  • Here is a collection of Demon in a Bottle, perhaps the best known classic Iron Man story.
  • Extremis, the story that more or less introduced the modern version of Iron Man, is collected here.
  • The series that started up at the time of the first Iron Man movie and eventually gets to the story where Stark erases his brain starts here.
  • The next Iron Man series after that starts here.
  • The one after that where Iron Man is evil(er than usual) is here.
