Hey everyone, new to the Iron Man comics and started with Marvel Now! series for Iron Man. I did some google searches to kind of get a back story and figured this was a good place to get started. So far I have the first 5 issues of the new Iron Man and I have a couple of questions.
From what I can gather Iron Man is no longer using the Extremis in him, and appears to have ditched the Bleeding Edge armor. Did he have Extremis removed from him or does he still have it in his body?
Secondly After reading the 5 issues I am a bit unclear about how the Model 40 armor works. Is it a liquid alloy armor, or was the liquid suite in the brief case just a test suit to see how a design would function, kind of like a prototype suit before the final version is finished, in which case he later created the suite like standard armors used to be mad? They made it sound like the latter but I am unsure of how it actually works.
Anyways I appreciate any help for a Iron Man newbie.
