Amazing Man Comics #7 - pt. 3
That Iron Skull is normally bulletproof, yet this hypodermic needle pierces his skin easily, is proof that I was on the right track with Armor Class for superheroes. Unless they are intentionally buffing themselves with defensive powers, they should always be vulnerable.
It's unclear what the needles contained, but the drug seems to have only rendered them unconscious.
It's interesting that the cage is located far underground -- suggesting a multi-level hideout -- yet there's a window in the room with the cage. Unless that's just a giant chart on the wall...
Iron Skull is buffing himself offensively again.
Here we have a precedent for grappling attacks being able to work despite size difference.
Iron Skull finally activates the one defensive power he's been saving, giving himself Super-Tough Skin. The breaking of the wrist is just flavor text; Iron Skull simply did x hit points' worth of damage while grappling.
You know, Dr. Toyat's jaw might have been healed better had he not taken the effort of saying out loud that it was out of place...
