This may be trivial to most folks, but it bothers me to no end seeing artists (but most especially John Romita Jr)draw Iron Man too short! Also, he doesn't draw him "thick" enough. He's 6'6 in armor. This means he's as tall as Thor and Luke Cage. Moreover, he's wearing armor. Unless it's wafer thin (and it wouldn't be or else he wouldn't be 6'6 in it)he should be shown as a little wider. Excluding size changers, the only Avengers taller than Iron Man are the Hulk and She-Hulk. Next up would be IM, Thor, Cage and War Machine. After that, Hercules (6'5). Once again, I know it's minor but it just irks me. Anyone else feel this way?

This new armour might not be 6'6". All of his armours have provided significantly more height than width.

The classic armours were always rather thin (approx. 2/3"). And really, the armour cannot be that thick, else Tony's body couldn't fit it. Any more than an inch, and Tony's going to have real, bone-crunching problems.
