"I'm sorry, Dr Pym, but that helmet makes you look like, well an ant!"|
From 1963, TALES TO ASTONISH# 35. Plot by Stan Lee and script by Larry Lieber, pencils by Jack Kirby and inks by Dick Ayers.
Here's another example of Jack Kirby's knack for designing whacky gadgets that seem plausible. Most of his gizmos have their own logic to them if you look at how they're supposed to work. Ant-Man's helmet looks like an ant's head, with the antennae and the part in front that resembles an ant's mandibles. As the diagram shows, it was functional and yet the design not only made Henry Pym recognizably Ant-Man, it may even have been supposed to have fooled the ants to a small exent. I don't know how much they rely on eyesight, but they do have large functional eyes after all.

Karakuri Douji Ultimo|
This one is a bit tricky--while my scans are from the Japanese version which appeared in the July 2009 issue of Jump Square, the English version appeared in Shonen Jump USA just this month. So I'm going to treat it as a "recent" comic and confine myself to four scans.
As you may remember from the preview chapter of Ultimo shown on this community some time ago, "Karakuri Douji Ultimo" starts with the mad technomage Dr. Dunstan (who looks a lot like Stan Lee) creating two essentially magical robots. They are Ultimo, who is pure good, and Vice, which is pure evil. They are to battle it out to once and for all prove whether good or evil is stronger.
