    I think the nose was more a reference point for the artists and the audience so they knew what he was looking at. I've never understood the muscles though, or the subtle facial expressions of the face plate.

    The nose was actually supposed to be intimidating.

    Could be. Way back in the early to mid-90's, Marvel issued a monthly Preview book (similar to the one they have now, only it wasn't married to Diamond's Previews) & every month they had a section which they called "Marvel's Silliest Moments". It covered such debacles as the Thing becoming a pirate, Galactus trying to eat Impossible Man's planet, &, of course, the Iron Man nose.
    Oddly, though, I think the 90's as a whole qualifies as one of Marvel's silliest moments.

    Was that truly his faceplate or is it just badly drawn?

    I'm not sure if that mask makes him look "special" or like a surprised Manga thing!?
