Comic Book Legends Revealed #487

COMIC LEGEND: Iron Man made a rather lewd proposition to Captain America in a 1974 issue of Captain America.

STATUS: False

Reader Ryan sent in a suggestion for I Love Ya But You're Strange:

The time Iron man offered Captain America some solid dick. I've seen this panel around the web where Iron man offers Captain America some solid dick, apparently it was slang to mean straight talk at the time the comic was published. I was wondering if there's any validity to this?

Here's the panel in question...

Somehow, people have been passing it around under the theory "wow, solid dick was slang for giving solid advice back in the day!" Seriously, people?

Here is the actual panel, from 1974's Captain America #176 by Steve Englehart and Sal Buscema...

The Mickey/Minnie one was just on this side of believable, but come on, this one was obviously fake!

Thanks to Ryan for the suggestion!
