  1. Richard Tale says:

    Am I seeing things or that guy has a metal jaw?

  2. Jeff Hebert says:

    You’re right, he’s “Iron Jaw”, a Nazi secret agent in the US. I am not sure how he can remain secret with an iron jaw, but there it is.

  3. Joshua says:

    “I shall ask again, vhere iz police inspector, Richard Tracy? Should you continue in defiance, I vill be forced to respond mit brutalities. Are ve clear?”

    “Oh Mr. Iron Jaw, sir, to once more be roughhoused by your pummeling, to feel my face swell in agony…oh that it would end in exquisite collapse, may I have another?”

    [To fellow Nazi stooge] “Next time you choose someone for me to interrogate, please be sure his name isn’t ‘S&M McChaw’!”

  4. Danny Beaty says:

    In the 70’s, a short-lived comic book company called “Atlas” had a barbarian character called “Iron Jaw”.

  5. Frankie says:

    Skelator: “It says that you were a Nazi secret agent in the U.S. How did that work out for you?”

    Trap-Jaw: “‘So kay. I lost my arm, but they gave me this handy gadget that allows me to attach various weapons to my shoulder.”

  6. Frankie says:

    Woops. I just thought of the rest of Trap-Jaw’s dialog.

    “They said it was supposed to give me the power, but it just itches a lot.”

  7. Bael says:

    One of these days, he’s going to slip and say “Yes, Mistress”, instead of “sir”, and then he’s really gonna get it.
