(Squadron Supreme I#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 the hero'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 extraterrestrial.
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 career of the late Tom Thumb.
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.
Physical stats and improved main image by Ron Fredricks.
