I like the bulky armor that Iron Man wore for his first few adventures. Not only does it look cool, but it is more close to reality as far as what a suit of iron would probably look like. For that reason I was happy to see it in live action when the first Iron Man movie was released. It looks like Tony Stark's armor will get another slight makeover for the upcoming Avengers film. It's nice to see the suit evolving, but I have to admit I am a little disappointed that we never got to see the classic red and gold armor with the widow's peak helmet which he wore for the bulk of the Silver and Bronze Age on the big screen. Oh well, Iron Man 3 will have a new director, so maybe he will be more of an old school comics fan and we still have a chance.
