Clothes being suits. For SEGA’s latest game, the Iron Man/Red Honcho Tony Stark will get to wear dozens of different types of suits according to his daily needs. Iron Man, a commanding Super Hero who built his greatest weapon- his suit – is on a mission to protect the world weapons he created. Check out the suits after the jump.
This is the very first Iron Man suit ever built. In a life changing moment, Tony Stark is attacked and captured by terrorists. While being held captive, Tony is forced to build a weapon of mass destruction. With the help of Yinsen, Tony builds the Mark I suit instead and uses it to escape. Thus, a new Super Hero is born: IRON MAN!
The Mark II was constructed as a prototype with an emphasis on exploring flight potential. As the first suit of Iron Man armor built at Stark Industries, the Mark II armor was soon replaced by the Mark III after initial flight testing.
This is the main suit Iron Man uses in the game and film. After initial flight tests were completed on the Mark II, Tony built the Mark III. Designed for customization, the Mark III armor can be equipped with a variety of enhancements and upgrades.
First debuting in “Tales of Suspense #48”, the suit that would become known as the iconic Iron Man armor underwent several subtle cosmetic changes before the look was finalized in “Tales of Suspense #66”. Some of the major features of the suit were the first implementation of the palm mounted “Repulsor Rays”, ultra fine microscopic integrated circuitry that made the suit easier to control, and boot thrusters that enabled the wearer to fly for greatly sustained speeds and distances. Appearing in well over 200 issues of Iron Man’s comic adventures, this suit is easily the most recognizable suit in Iron Man’s arsenal.
First appearing during the “Extremis” story arc that ran from Iron Man Vol. 4 Issues 1-6, this armor has become the most prevalent look for the modern day Iron Man. This is the defining suit that Tony Stark has worn during major events such as “Civil War” and “World War Hulk”. In this armor, Iron Man has hit new levels of power.
The name says it all. In order to be ready for possible combat with the rampaging monster known as “The Incredible Hulk”, Tony Stark developed this suit of armor as the ultimate add on to the Iron Man suit. The first version of Iron Man’s Hulkbuster armor appeared in Iron Man #304 and enabled Iron Man to lift up to 175 tons as well as provide enough durability to withstand repeated blows from the Hulk.
Classic Mark I
The first Iron Man suit ever created. Built during Iron Man’s first appearance in “Tales of Suspense #39”, the suit functioned both as a life saving device for Tony Stark’s injured heart and as a weapon to help him escape captivity. While reinterpreted by different artists, this design is based from the original version of the suit designed by Jack Kirby and Don Heck.
That’s not all. There is suits geared to each console too. 360 gets Silver Centurion, while the Ultimate comes for the PS3 from the Marvel Universe. Prepare to gear up soon, and do not wait too long.
