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.

So it's clear why you're not an IM fan. An Iron Man fan DOES "get into" his armors. "Superheroes should"? How many outfits has Wolverine gone through? I don't think Wolvie would take too kindly to the Shumacher analogy. But that aside...if you're not into IM, fine. The very reason you don't embrace him is part of what drives our loyalty.

The point of this character is improvement. He's basically a pretty mortal guy who invents his way into better, faster, stronger superheroics. So it's only logical the suit should change over the years.

And what, red-and-gold isn't basic enough for you?
