History: (Squadron Supreme#10 (fb)) - The Iron Moth was apprehended by Tom Thumb after committing a robbery.
Comments: Created by Mark Gruenwald, Paul Ryan and Sam de la Rosa.
Iron Moth's battle with Tom Thumb took place early in Thumb's career, before he became a member of Squadron Supreme.
I'm guessing from his appearance that the Iron Moth was a technology user, but it's also conceivable that he was a mutant, mutate or extra-terrestrial.
I hope you weren't expecting an epic profile on a character that appeared in exactly one panel. His appearance was part of a WSQS-TV program that documented the late Tom Thumb's career.
The Atom, a DC character whom Tom Thumb
very loosely parallels, battled a villain called the Bug-Eyed Bandit whose gimmick involved robotic
insects. Presumably an "Iron Moth" might fit this description. Alternately, the
Iron Moth could be a reference to minor Batman villain Killer Moth; he visually
resembles Killer Moth quite a bit.
