The X-O Manowar Armor wiki last edited by Exile-616 on 10/22/13 04:30AM View full history


The origins of this armor are shrouded in mystery. The United States acquired the armor during World War II and spent a great deal of time trying to figure out how it worked. It was only when a young genius, Donovan Wylie, was brought into the project that anyone was able to make the armor work. The US Army bounded the armor with Major Rand Banion who seemed to be the perfect fit. Unfortunately the armor's defensive nature was neutralized by merging the armor with Banion due to his fearless nature (the armor required a pilot who understood that it needed self preservation instincts to truly be effective). Wylie himself bonded with the armor in an effort to save his life and keep the armor from the terrorist group, R.A.G.E.

Abilities - The suit grants the user the following abilities:

  • Flight
  • Super Human Strength
  • Invisiblitiy
  • Invulnerability - This ability is dependent upon the wearer. A person with a healthy sense of self preservation had nothing to fear. A fearless person however was vulnerable to attack as the armor did not know it needed to protect the host.
  • X-Ray Vision - The helmet provided the wearer with the ability to see through objects.
  • Energy Projection - The user could project blasts of energy from the wrists of the armor. Intensity varied upon the users desire.
  • Remote Terminal - The unit was capable of separating into two units, the second was sentient and capable of protecting as second host. While similar to the original it did not appear to have enough power to use its offensive abilities without the primary unit.
