Episode 166: The Avengers Mansion Tax Shelter (Tales of Suspense #59) -- November 1964
In This Episode:
Mike and Ed discuss Tony Stark’s donation of his giant Upper East Side Mansion to the Avengers. Was the mansion donated directly from his personal wealth, or was it done through StarkCorp? What was Tony’s motivation? Is it related to his recent decision to turn StarkCorp temporarily over to Iron Man? Is is suspicious that Iron Man has taken control of Stark Corp within days of also taking possession of one of the most valuable pieces of real estate in New York? Also: Why did the mafia choose this moment to attempt an Avengers Mansion home invasion?
Behind the Issue:
This issue marks the first modern stand-alone Captain America story. Going forward Tales of Suspense is splitting its storytelling between Iron Man and Captain America (just as Tales to Astonish has split between Giant Man/Wasp and the Hulk). At this point in Marvel’s history every Avenger has their own stand-alone (or shared stand-alone) title.
