    Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers Journey Into Mystery #93 Splash Page 1 Original Art (Marvel, 1963). This "twice-up" opening title page is the first appearance of Radio-Active Man! It's also an early outing for Thor, who made his first appearance just one year and 10 issues earlier. Of course, the God of Thunder would eventually assume blockbuster status, thanks to Chris Hemsworth and the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
    Radio-Active Man would later be recruited by Baron Heinrich Zemo as a founding member of the supervillain team known as the Masters of Evil, the primary opponents of the Avengers. Chen Lu would go on to serve the Mandarin and battle Jim Rhodes (aka Iron Patriot, Iron Man 2.0), and eventually have clashes with Spider-Man, She-Hulk, Thunderbolts, and more! These two characters truly are marvelous stepping stones into the now dominating world of Marvel comics, and this page would make a fine addition to any serious comic art collection. Ink over graphite on Bristol board with a twice- up scale image area of 12.5" x 18.5". Light marginal toning and/or smudging, soft corner and edge wear, marginal production notes, and the reverse has production tape and the Marvel comics stamp. The art is in Excellent condition.
