When it comes to the popularization of superheroes in the modern era, there is no more influential work than Marvel Studios' Iron Man. The studio took a hero that was iconic to Marvel readers but certainly not to the average film goer, cast him as a then wildcard choice of Robert Downey Jr., and turned it into a global phenomenon that has launched the biggest franchise of interconnecting movies in the history of film. The first Iron Man film hasn't had an impact just on movies, though, but so too on the comics, impacting the portrayal of certain heroes and leading to the introduction of Nick Jury Jr. Now, Marvel fans can celebrate Iron Man's impact in an unlikely way. A page from the original comic book adaptation of the MCU's Iron Man film, Iron Man: I am Iron Man, is now up for big over at Heritage Auctions. The page is by Sean Chen, well known as the artist behind other Iron Man comics, Avengers Academy, and his role as a recurring cover artist for Zenescope Entertainment. The page is inked by Victor Olazaba and Scott Hanna and comes from the script adapted by comics veteran Peter David, a celebrated writer known for formative runs on Hulk, Supergirl, and more.
