Marvel Double Feature (1973): 1-21

Marvel Double Feature reprinted Iron Man and Captain America stories from Tales of Suspense, though not from the same issue. This makes it difficult to obtain a complete reprint of a single Tales of Suspense issue. The Masterworks books are a better alternative.

The Iron Man stories were 12 pages and the Captain America stories were 10 pages, except for Tales of Suspense #97. That Captain America story was 11 pages long. The Iron Man half of Iron Man and Sub-Mariner #1 was 11 pages and the feature story in Iron Man #1 was 17 pages.

The first nine issues were 20 pages long, so 2 pages were cut from either story. At the start, the cuts alternated characters. But later, the more popular superhero retained the complete stories. In this case, Captain America wins out. A similar thing occurred with the Tales to Astonish reprints in Marvel Superheroes. There, the Hulk was more popular than the Sub-Mariner.

Issues 10-16 were 18 pages long so the cuts affected both stories. There were 1-3 pages cut from the Iron Man stories and 1-2 pages cut from the Captain America stories. The Iron Man and Sub-Mariner #1 reprint had 2 pages cut and the Iron Man #1 reprint had a total of 3 pages cut.

Issues 17-21 reprinted 2 Captain America stories per issue. The cuts ranged from 1 to 3 pages. That finished the Tales of Suspense reprints.

Captain America received his own series with issue #100. Those reprints are found in Marvel Super Action #1-13. Iron Man migrated to his own series also, but there were no Bronze Age reprints.
