It's just too much. I really want to get into Iron Man, but I couldn't give two sh!ts, about his 500x different armours.

IM is a great concept, but superheroes really should have one-basic look and stick with it; otherwise it becomes a Joel Shumacher Batman flick where we're supposed to be excited everytime bats puts on a more "advanced" costume.

Although Iron Man should be adaptable and use specialty armors, I think that Marvel has done very well to maintain the overall look of the modern armor for some time now. Even the recent Extremis stream lining has carried over the look from Grell's designs. The biggest changes over the last few years really have been only the omission of the tubular style arms and legs. I still thought that Mike Ryan had one of the best takes on the armor in a long time.
