The Mighty Atom Bends Steel

Posted on Tuesday, December 8th, 2015 by John Wood
Here’s a look at “The Mighty Atom” Joe Greenstein bending a steel beam over the bridge of his nose with a little help from his friends. This extremely rare shot was taken in the ring at Madison Square Garden in 1974, the same night Slim The Hammer Man set the record for his amazing hammer lift. It was all at Aaron Banks’ big Karate show.

Here’s a classic Joe Weider ad featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger, circa 1971. The copy is pretty interesting:
