    Well it does say young Tony Stark on the cover which explains the babyish eyes....he hasn't matured yet. :hehe:

    I agree with this point about the circular emblem, though I never see many people say anything about it. Something about the circle is so much more iconic to me than the various triangles or pentagon shaped chest pieces often used.

    I also agree with the earlier statements that Iron Man's fake musculature in a lot of his armors was a bit ridiculous. The more realistic robotic look of the modern armors is much more effective, though I'll admit I still have a fondness for the "modular armor" in the 90's cartoon.

    As far as the main topic at hand, though, I'd like to forget ever looking at the "Iron kid" armor that the teenage Tony Stark wore sometime in the 90's.

    Tony and Rhodey must really be close friends for Tony to just get undressed in front of him.

    I actually really like the triangular chest beam. The Modular Armor was my first experience with Iron Man with the Cartoon and Marvel vs Capcom, so I definately love that armor, and the Extremis Armor is probably my favorite. Not to take anything away from the circle tho. The Classic Red and Gold armor is his most iconic armor. When most people think of Iron Man, they think of that armor.

    Okay-it's a stretch but I buy it. I still prefer the more modern versions.
    EDIT: And you know, back in the day if you read Spider-Man regularly, there were periodic explanations of how his web-shooters worked, how he tracked his spider-tracers, things like that. I don't recall once coming across anything like the images you posted. And I'm certain that I've seen images of muscular, jointless armor being laid open. So it seems there's some inconsistencies there.

    The Heroes Reborn looks silly and bad, not something I'd rather forget
    They were still fast, and helped conserve energy
    The rollers are awesome

    i actually have mixed feelings about the current armor, it just depends on who was drawing it that makes it great(John Romita Jr. for example)

    Cannot stand the skin armor. Terrible design design and overly massive for no reason.

    The modular armour. I just feel that the big blocks of red and yellow on it make for a pretty dull design, and I don't like the muscles on it.
