    I personally can do without the one where he had a "nose" on his faceplate:huh::whatever:, & the "Heroes Reborn" design (I know, I know-blasphemy! How dare I besmirch the name of the great & awesome Jim Lee!) was just too...busy for me.

    Model XV. I loved the version before this one, when he upgrades from the Silver Centurion, but this one, I just could never stand those boots.

    I'm not well versed in the many armors IM has worn over the years but I do know I prefer him having a circular emblem on his chest rather than the triangular/diamond shaped ones.

    On a side note, the Jim Lee IM looks like he's wearing a banana hammock.:csad:

    I don't know what screams 90s more: the in dialog logo or the belt pouches.

    And they were the ONLY thing wrong w/the suit, IMO. 1 bad accessory can obviously wreck an entire costume.

    That's easy; the belt pouches. They were almost mandatory on 90's outfits, whether anything was actually carried in them or not.

    The nose- Just stupid. "It was supposed to strike fear and terror in the hearts of his enemies" I always picture Hawkeye laughing his ass off after hearing this.

    The JRJR design with the moon boots-Ruined a great design. The slim boots and gauntlets on Classic II looked great; these looked like he was wearing oil barrels on his feet and Hi-C cans on his arms.

    Heroes reborn- My 12 year old cousin back in the day once remarked "He looks like he has hockey sticks on his back" regarding the boot jet exhausts. What would a guy in a high-tech super powered suit of armor need with belts and pouches anyway.

    My son keeps asking me why they've got Iron Man looking like Juggernaut.
    I doubt any Hulkbuster suit could ever possibly be worth a damn unless it was gamma-powered.

    Many of his early suits had muscles built into them. I've stopped trying to understand it. I think it's the thing I love most about his movie suit-his best suit ever, in my opinion.

    Slick, sleek, tech-looking. And no muscles.

    I'm sure it sounded menacing at the time.
