Emma’s 30 Days of Marvel [Day 10]

30 Days of Marvel Day 10: Your Favourite Costume

He’s more machine now than man.

– Obi Wan Kenobi

I agonized over this one, but sometimes you just have to go with your gut. Extremis was the moment when my eyes were first opened to what both Tony Stark and Iron Man could be and the Extremis suit- if you could even call it that- is what captured my imagination the most. Even though it lead to the stunning sequence in World’s Most Wanted where Tony tumbled backwards through his old suits as his brain shut down, I’m still resentful of Secret Invasion for taking away that brief shining moment when Tony’s life’s work was complete.

    Did you ever read Iron Man: Hypervelocity? It is definitely all about the next giant step for Tony Stark’s suit.
