History:

(My Love II#5/1 (fb) - BTS) - Ronny Langdon was a popular rock music singer. Financially cautious, he had his own banker to take care of the earnings from his singing engagements and records. He quietly set up a trust fund for his parents. Langdon fell in love with Liz Grant, whose conservative father derided Langdon, primarily because of the singer's long hair. Langdon drove a coupe covered with pictures of flowers, but didn't understand why people judged him a hippy.

(My Love II#5/1) - Liz attended many of Langdon's gigs at clubs, but at home, she had to confront her father's bias against Langdon. She encountered similar prejudice from Langdon's romantic rival, Harold Evans, also conservative but unaware of Langdon's financial acumen. Deciding he wanted to marry Liz, Langdon drove her home after a performance and wanted to speak with her parents. Although Liz was concerned about the likely confrontation, Langdon offered his banker's services to confirm his earnings, as well as offer a loan due to Liz's father's business problems. The father no longer needed the money, but his prejudice against Langdon sharply changed into admiration, as he recognized he had judged Langdon too harshly. Apparently gaining the approval of the parents, Langdon became engaged to Liz.

 

Comments: Created by Stan Lee (writer), Gene Colan (pencils), Frank Giacoia (inks).

He's initially called RonnIE, not RonnY, in the first panel, but it's Ronny everywhere else in the story.

These romance stories often had the flavor of the time in which they were written, and nothing else to tie them into Marvel's sliding timescale. As such, it's likely that the stories took place at the time of publication rather than being part of the sliding timescale.

CLARIFICATIONS :
Ronny Langdon has no known connections to:


Liz Grant

Liz Grant

A student, Liz Grant loved rock singer Ronny Langdon and they dated, but her conservative father railed against their love, despite the mother's demure approval. Sometimes her father's disapproval led to her tears. She attended Langdon's gigs, but was surprised when he wanted to speak to her father about marrying her. Gaining her father's trust due to his financial acumen, Langdon apparently became engaged to Liz.
