This idea has recently just occurred to me after looking at several pictures of what they say is going to be Tony Stark's newest Iron Man suit. I have to say that it is a dramatic change with the black and gold coloration, but has Marvel taken to changing the Iron Man Armors too much?
I mean, Tony has always been changing armors on a fairly regular basis; but it seems to me that Marvel has really started pumping out more and more alterations to his armors in the past few years. Before, it used to be a major event when Tony adopted a new armor--and they lasted for quite a while--now it's starting to be like he changes it in for a new year's model after only a few issues. Or is it just me?
Don't get me wrong, I have liked a lot of the armors--particularly the Extremis design looked so realistic and mechanically neat, but I'm starting to get a bit jaded at how Marvel keeps changing Iron Man's look on me.
