Iron Monru

This is the second part of Vespa331's Damage scans. This installment features Munro.

According to Vespa331:
I'm not sure what to classify Munro as - he's kind of a friend to Grant, little bit of an ally/sidekick, little bit of a father figure...it's complicated. I think he's an older hero, Justice Society era. Munro kinda confused me. But he's shirtless A Lot, so gotta love him.
EDIT: Some additional info courtesy of Dave in NJ:
Iron Munro was created for the book "Young All-Stars." back in the late 80's. When the Crisis wiped out the Earth 2 Superman from continuity, DC created Iron Munro to be the replacement figure in any old golden age stories. The same was true for the character of Fury (Lyta Hall) who was the replacement for Wonder Woman and Flying Fox who replaced Batman.

Thanks for the info Dave in NJ! I hate it when DC replaces golden age characters, but this Iron Munro looks hot!
