   By The Australian Panther
This is curious for several reasons. First the cover highlights 'Bozo the Robot' but inside the book the character is Hugh Hazard's 'Iron Man' Second. The cover shows a man menaced by a Robot so we assume Good Man, Bad Robot (Apologies to J. J. Abrams) until we look closer and see that the man is clearly deranged, but in fact the robot is the good guy! Third, The Robot is so goofy looking! What is he grinning at? I've read complicated arguments as to where Lee and Kirby got the idea for Iron Man, but I've not seen a reference to this character. Marvel and DC in the 'Silver age' strip-mined names and concepts from out of copyright Golden age sources. they showed a pretty good knowledge of competitors characters so I wouldn't be surprised if this character wasn't an influence.
