I'm assuming you means Surfer and not Super Skrull but you have him listed twice? Anyway, Surfer should be near unbeatable by any earth based creature. However, he's had his power drained by earth tech before so I guess that could actually be an easy win if the Surfer doesn't annihilate him first.

> GR

Dispatch SHIELD's psychics to keep Blaze the dominant personality and then just let him defeat himself. Get a blast gate for his mask so the stare doesn't work?

> Thor Classic

Build a Thorbuster and tell Thor it is stronger than him. While he is fighting it hand to hand and forgetting he has other powers, send in SHIELD agents armed with adamantium needles and SPIN tech specially formulated for Thor (which he should have since he cloned him).

> SS Current

Silver Surfer again?

> Nova Current

Throw a bunch of drones at Nova while hacking the Worldmind. Without the WM to tell him what to do Nova will do something stupid and probably crash into a moon. If the WM can't be hacked then create false distress signals in deep space so that Nova has to resond and is therefore removed from earth. Continue planning.

> Superman Current

Ask Lex about him then use a power drain, red krypto, etc.

> Dr Strange

Pay a ninja to sneak into his house and club him. Really, there's not much he can do and low tech has always worked better on Strange than high tech. The problem with Strange is that he is as tough as the writer feels like making him. IM could theoretically take him down with sonics or something before Strange has a chance to come up with a spell to counter it. Don't see it happening though. IM's best bet is to have SHIELD dig out a magician to keep him busy and leave him vulnerable.

> Wonder Woman

Punch her in the nose

> SS
Doom built a device that absorbs the Power Cosmic. Panther recently revealed that he either borrowed it or reverse engineered it. Since it's entirely likely that Reed, T'Challa, Doom or someone has info regarding it stored in cyberspace somewhere, Stark downloads and builds for himself. The rest is, as you say, history....

> GR
Supernatural powers are harder to prep for since they don't always correspond to science. Since GR's SoV didn't want to fight Hulk because he wasn't "guilty", it's likely that IM would be similar. Head to head fight, IM is invulnerable to Hellfire (if his eye and mouth slits are closed) and he's physical superior to GR in every possible way. No prep needed....provided IM isn't guilty of some horrible crimes.

> Thor Classic
The problem with Thor is that he's supernatural AND an uber-brick on top of that. IM would have to rebuild original Thorbuster and hope that Thor doesn't have any tricks up his sleeves (like Odin Power). IM's proven that he can equal or surpass Thor's strength with specialty suits..but Thor's so much more than just strength. As much as I love IM, Thor is never a good matchup for him...

> SS Current
See previous SS question at top. Cosmic drain worked against current Surfer when Panther did it....one must assume it would still work.

> Nova Current
Current Nova has had a pretty good showing in Annihilation, but in his own book he's shown nothing extraordinary. Assuming current book is guage of his current state of power, IM needs no prep. Outpowers him now... Uses drone army, just in case.

> Superman Current

Read Battle of the Watchtower Part 5 to see how Iron Man could prep for Superman. This guy wrote a MUCH better Civil War than Millar, IMO. And JF, please don't bother responding that Supes is more resistent to Green Krypto now. A being made of pure Krypto that is pummeling him with Superstrength and grappling him COULD take him out. You asked HOW it could happen, not how it would happen in a way you find acceptable.

> Dr Strange
Stealthiest armor ever. Unless IM can get in close to strange to get off the first strike, Strange is more than capable of casting some spell that quickly changes the tables...

> Wonder Woman
Ahhhh. You're either looking to rile J's feathers or Iron Fans aren't you? As I've said several times and still firmly believe, Iron Man doesn't need prep against Wonder Woman. I believe it's a close fight, but I think Stark takes a majority. She's more than capable of winning...but it's my opinion that he still wins more than he loses.

He would come up with a way to drain the Surfer's power cosmic. He's done it before, on the fly, using his armor. If he had prep, he could probably do what Dr. Doom did--steal ALL of the Surfer's power, or at least negate it temporarily.

> GR
Who is GR?

> Thor Classic

> SS Current
Same as above, with classic SS. Drain his energy.

> Nova Current
My limited understanding of Nova's power is that it comes largely from the Nova Corp. central computer. Iron Man would probably try to artificially enhance his own Extremis power (the part that grants him telepathic control over all electronic devices that can send/receive digital signals, including computers) so that he can take over that Nova Corp. computer and block its ability to enhance Nova's strength, etc.

> Superman Current
If adamantium can cut Superman's body, the nanite weapon might work. He could also equip himself with retractable adamantium blades (which I thought would also work on WW Hulk). Synthesizing kryptonite would be a difficult task. I don't know if that can be done or not. If all else fails, Iron Man would create a small army of adamantium Iron Man robots to fight with/for him.

> Dr Strange
I don't know that any amount of prep can counter what Strange brings to the table. Magic usually cannot be negated by technology. That being said, there are certain things that Iron Man can do, which, if he strikes first, would bring Strange down, such as sonics. With Strange v. Iron Man, I would think the fight would be pretty quick, and it would be won by whomever struck first.

> Wonder Woman
I don't really think he would prep for this one. No offense to J, but I think Iron Man can just beat Wonder Woman with no prep.

I think this is a bad matchup for Iron Man, one on one. I don't think he can drain Thor's mystical energies. I also don't think nanites will work. His best bet would be to wear his adamantium armor and give himself an adamantium sword. Even then, Thor could just BFR Iron Man.
