What suit should Iron Man have in his main profile? (discussion)

Created by Savage, 20 d ago.

Iron Man is a pretty main character, but it's impossible to judge how well he does in battles, because it's always been unclear what suit he has in his main profile. He has over 60 suits, and I'm more than happy to add them all and edit them, but first we need to change his main profile to a specific suit. There are some other problems with Iron Man suits as well (Like which hulkbuster armor is the one in the profile? Why no model numbers on any of the suits?) but I can fix that. We just need to decide which armor he has in his main profile, because otherwise it's impossible to give any iron man feats. It seems most people assume it's one of three things, Extremis, Model Prime, or Bleeding Edge, but all three have separate profiles. We just need a moderator to edit him and give him a specific suit.

Huge Iron Man fan here. To be honest his main profile suit is fine. If his main suit is the Model 70, then change it to Model 69 for technology adjustments sakes here. Uru armor and godbuster armor needs stats. That's one of his strongest suits. I mean heck, base Iron Man stats should be higher.

Well his main profile doesn't have a specific suit, but I would agree it should be Model 69

I know! It's very bothersome because I never know how to use Iron Man feats, since they're all with different armor (I feel the same way about Ultron but that's another issue). What suit do you think his main profile should be?

Probably whatever his current suit is but I can't say for sure. Bleeding Edge is another good choice but it's already its own profile.

His current suit is Model 70, but it's purposely less advanced because he's been going retro recently. I would suggest Model 69, because it's his most advanced base suit. The only problem with that is Model 69 has only appeared like, twice. So it would be a little weird to have that as the main profile. In my mind that could still work since we then could use feats for any base suit, and point out that Model 69 can do that as well, since his base suits never go back in tech. So if someone uses and extremis feat, a model prime feat, a bleeding edge feat, a feat from 1968, and a feat from 1982, they can all work since Model 69 would also have those abilities.

Model 70 or Model 69? Because currently he's wearing Model 70, but that ones purposely less advanced because he wanted to go old school. Model 69 on the other hand is the current peak of his normal armor advancements, but it's only appeared once, so we would have to assume it's power level (which might make more sense).

True but if it's Model 70 that would make the profile considerably less powerful. I think it should be Model 69 because that's his most advanced "base" suit. The Model 70 may be what he's wearing, but it's far from his most advanced tech since he's purposely trying to go retro right now, and overall it seems really weak from the comics we've seen it in.

Model 69 only appeared like in 3 panels lol. And there is no need to downgrade Iron Man status since is a combination of modern technology in a classic style and his classic armour have already done impressive stuff. And the most advanced design is the Bleeding edge by feats and statements the others like endo sym and model prime only have hype. And since the current armour is virtually featless i don't recommend to change the status up or down.

The models actually don't mean some newest armour is more powerful that the one before, for example his golden and black suit or model 42 is way weaker that his bleeding edge, Tony himself admitted is not the same.

Well his current armor has been shown to be pretty weak so far, and is arguably even lower than say, extremis, which was many suits ago. Model Prime is well above Bleeding Edge, as each base suit gets more powerful. So say Model Prime was the profile, one could use Bleeding Edge feats and point out that Model Prime can do that and more. With Model 69 we can use any feats from any Iron Man suit and say that Model 69 has those abilities as well, since it does. With Model 70 we have no way to judge how powerful it is, and in theory it's probably only a little above say, Model 4, and that would make it very, very weak in comparison to any of his armor from the last two decades.

One option is Model 70, that's his current armor and is pretty basic
Model 69 only appears once, but it's just the most updated standard armor, so that's generic enough to work.
The most famous is most likely Model 4 or Model 2, which are virtually the same, but the only problem with that is Tony is so much more advanced now it's not even funny. That's why I suggest we use a newer one like Model 69, we can just assume enough about it from other armors that it will work.
