Today Marvel.com showed off their latest: an all-new armor for the metal Avenger, Iron Man.
This newest iteration of ‘ole Shellhead’s battle-dress features the familiar Red and Gold color scheme, but a streamlined look and redistribution of colors gives it a unique style.
According to Marvel’s piece, the look was co-designed by now longtime Invincible Iron Man writer Matt Fraction and the designer for the Iron Man and Thor movies, Ryan Meinerding. Fraction is quoted as saying, “”The inspiration for the new design came from thinking about a sleeker, leaner, tougher Iron Man. If technology is increasingly getting smaller and lighter it seems like the Iron Man should do the same: ergonomic and aerodynamic.”
Marvel does note it will still be Tony Stark in the new armor, and the debut will come in April’s Invincible Iron Man #25.
