    I'm torn.

    It does look nice and sleek, but I liked the old armour.
    Gave him some bulk and didn't just look like someone in a costume.

    I like it. The thing about the Iron Man armor, except the recent model, is that it's supported to change and evolve. Lately, it hasn't though. The "Extremis" armor has been around actually since 3/4 through the previous Iron Man series. The only difference when it became "Extremis" was that the kneecaps changed. Otherwise it was pretty much the same.

    This one you can tell takes a big dip from the movie design, definitely in the legs. I don't like the minimal amount of gold but it's still a very nice design.

    Looks good to me, but I must admit I'm only a casual Iron Man fan, so changes like that won't bother me much as long as it's still in line with the past armors.

    Looks more like a spandex costume than a suit of armor.

    Looks okay, but it's losing the armor feel..and maybe it doesn't need all that extra lights.

    Not a big an impact as the Iron Spider back then.

    He kinda looks like a Rollerball player to me. It's ok, but it'll probably look more like the movie armor by summer time.

    I like the design of the new suit not thrilled with the art that was done for it. they way he did some of the shadows really flattened the character.

    Casual IM fan...I could live with this if and when I start buying Marvel books again.

    Could use a touch more bulk in the shoulder, but I like the gauntlets and helmet.

    Looks good. Iron Man has always changed and updated his armour right from the start - and his older Secret Wars era suit was no less spandex than this IIRC. It's a nice design. Very sleek.

    I like the armor a bit chunkier than that, but I can live with at as long as not all of those lights are shining all the time.

    As an armor enthusiast, I like it. I wish it had a bit more bulk to it, but that can change from artist to artist. I'm for it.

    I like it. It's basically a modern Modular Armor.
