The H.P. stands for Happy!

I was reading some of my 1960s era Iron Man comic books today and got to thinking that Hap "Happy" Hogan getting a job as chauffeur as a reward for saving Tony Stark's life way back in Tales of Suspense was sort of a waste of story potential. Hogan didn't do much except mope after the boss' secretary and get rescued by Iron Man much of the time. Imagine how awesome the original series would have been if the pity-job went not to a morose, punch-drunk loser of an ex-boxer but instead to a racist author with suicidal urges and complex mommy-issues.

I really think H.P. "Happy" Lovecraft would have been the greater asset to Team Stark.
