Tony Stark, Executive at Large!

What If?

It's not just a line of Marvel comics of questionable, and largely variable, quality! It's a question for the ages! But sometimes Marvel misses the obvious "What Ifs"... or so it might appear. I give you samplings from Iron Man v1 #151 (1981), where we learn the answer to the question: What if Tony Stark were but an ordinary executive?

Behold! A tale that could only be told in the Mighty Marvel Manner!

Tony Stark, Executive at Large!

We join Tony already hard at work as the head of Stark International!

After a few quick phone calls and a line of coke...

Meanwhile, superheroes like Ant-Man are having such adventures as running around empty buildings with flying ants until...

Tony gets fitted for 486 different casual suits in every color from mauve to hot pink, until finally, his taxing day comes to an end as he returns to work.

Man, I'm so excited! I can't wait to see what happens next issue! What? Tony attends a board meeting to go over the third quarter financial reports?! And it's a cross-over event with Jennifer Walters: The Savage She-Attorney?! WOOHOO!!
