Iron Patriot's Strength Level

#1 Posted by PrimeDirective (448 posts) - - Show Bio

So I have a question... We know that the Iron Patriot suit is capable of granting the wearer the superhuman strength of Iron Man, but I curious if Norman's own superhuman strength increased the overall lifting abilities of Iron Patriot. Has it been shown that Iron Patriot's strength is equal to Iron Man's, Norman's own strength plus Iron Man's, or does Norman's strength increase the suits lifting ability proportionately by some chance? I betting it's just equal to Iron Man's strength, but still I was curious.

Its probably equal to Iron Man's for the simple fact the suit is rated to a maximum level, no matter who is wearing it you can't go over that without damaging servos and joints and what not. But then again it is comics, so who knows.

That's what I thought as well, but Extremis was some weird stuff, even for Tony, so you never know just how his suit increased strength. Norman's seems to be based off of that suit as well.

@PrimeDirective: That's true, but I don't think Norman has Extremis. If he does he definately isn't using it to its fullest, or that's why he is hunting Tony to get its secrets.

I think Norman's suit is the suit Tony was wearing before he got Extremis

This is true Normans suit is simply the suit Iron Man was using during the New Avenger arch and the extremis arch before he got the powers. Normans armor is either as powerfull or less. One thing ive noticed is that though the same armor it lacks the Arch blaster in the chest that has been replaced by a decrementle star. Considering this has always been one of Iron Mans best weapons I think Iron Patriot is at a dissadvantage. One thing I noticed is that Norman has not yet been tested in a real battle to hold his own in operating the armor

it looked like the armor was destroyed and he had no intentions of becoming iron patriot any more
