This was one of many features created for the original Rumorbuster site, but we've since moved to our new home at therumorbuster.com where there's all kinds of fresh, new stuff to look at.
Created as a supplement to the Super Hero Squad Rumorbuster site, this is a visual guide to the many armors of Iron Man, as well as some of his allies and enemies. Each thumbnail links to a larger version of the image.
The first Iron Man, released in the Iron Man/Thor two-pack from Wave 2.
This Iron Man was next repainted in the first Collector's Pack as War Machine.
Then came the Spider-Man armor designed by Tony Stark prior to the Civil War, and currently used by the Scarlet Spiders from Avengers: The Initiative (albeit, the armor has been re-tooled to include a fourth arm on each suit and thus making it more spider-like.) This was included in the Avengers 4-pack featuring Captain America, Ms. Marvel and the Vision.
Iron Man: Hall of Armor (First Appearance, Hulkbuster, Silver Centurion, Tony Stark)
Iron Man's next appearance was in the first wave of Hulk figures in Hulkbuster armor based on his look from World War Hulk, in a two-pack with Hulk, also sporting his look from World War Hulk.
Following the first wave of 4-packs came the Crimson Dynamo Attacks (also known as the Desert Face Off) and The Genius of Tony Stark packs featuring repaints.
Crimson Dynamo Attacks (Crimson Dynamo, "Classic" Iron Man, Desert Armor Iron Man, and War Machine)
Genius of Tony Stark (Hulkbuster, with gunmetal grey joints, Scarlet Spider armor with more primary yellow colored legs, First Appearance armor painted gold, and Ultimate Iron Man.)
And for some side-by-side shots. The Scarlet Spiders
