Wong-Chu (Earth-616) from Tales of Suspense Vol 1 39 0002
Wong-Chu was a communist leader in Vietnam. When he captured Tony Stark after a land mine had severely injured the American tycoon, he offered Stark a deal: if Stark would build a power weapon for the Communists, Wong-Chu would allow his surgeons to save Stark's life. Stark knew that Wong-Chu was lying, being fully aware that if the surgeons could have operated, then they would have done so immediately, to see to it that he lived long enough to design weapons for them. But he agreed, hoping to gain time and access to tools. He pledged that the weapon he built would be his, intended for the sole purpose of keeping him alive.

Stark was given access to a small laboratory in communist territory. along with the assistance of a fellow captive, Professor Ho Yinsen. Yinsen helped Stark design and build an electrically powered suit of iron armor and equipped it with a variety of offensive weaponry. The armor also contained a pacemaker-like device which would enable Stark's injured heart to keep beating after the shrapnel entered it. When Wong-Chu became suspicious of his two captives's work, Yinsen sacrificed his life to give Stark time to charge the suit. As Iron Man, Stark avenged Yinsen's death, defeated Wong-Chu and scattered his guerilla troops.[1]
