A journey to Iron Man's armors 3 Aug 2008
By Sakis Perivolaris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
For someone who hasn't the original issues and wants to have a collection of stories with Iron Man's different armors from the classic era this is a good find. The book starts nicely with Iron Man's origin story from issue #47 and continues with the Space armor from issues #142-144. Issue #144 for those with short memory features again the Mark-I armor along with the first meeting between Tony Stark and Jim Rhodes. Next comes issue #152 with the Stealth armor featured only in 6 pages and issue #153 in order to not let the story of the previous issue unfinished. Issue #200 follows with the first appearance of the Silver armor and the confrontation between Tony Stark's Iron Man and Obadiah Stane's Iron Monger. The closing story for this book comes with issue #218 and the Deep-Sea armor.

A nice addition to this book would be the Stealth armor's more prominent appearance from issue #229 and the return to the red and gold armor from issue #231 but since these are included in the Armor Wars book the publisher optioned not to have the same stories in two different publications. Maybe in the future we'll see an updated edition along with the more recent armors.

The book is a paperback, not a hardcover as the Demon in a Bottle book, with glossy paper and beautiful colours and every issue is featured with it's original cover.

Iron Man 21 April 2008
By JSC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Any fan of Iron Man, espescially the classic stories, will enjoy this book. I highly recomend it. It is actually a collection of stories featuring the Deep-Sea Armor, Stealth Armor, etc... In my opinion the multi-part story featuring the Space Armor is worth the price of admission alone.

Half-decent collection featuring various armors over different eras 10 April 2008
By N. Durham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Many Armors of Iron Man is just as the title implies: a collection featuring stories that demonstrate the various armors of Iron Man over different eras. The Stealth Armor, the Deep Sea Armor, the Space Armor, the Hulk-buster Armor; it's just about all here. There is a variety of talent behind the issues collected here, including longtime writing duo David Micheline and Bob Layton, as well as Roy Thomas, Barry Windsor-Smith, John Romita, Jr., and the great Denny O'Neil. While this TPB features all this variety, there really isn't a whole lot else to really recommend it. It is worth a look at the very least for new fans to see all the historic Iron Man designs, and worth a look for older fans that just want to refresh their memories, but as a whole, there just isn't enough here to hold one's attention for very long. Worth checking out definitely for all Iron Man fans, but whether or not it's worth picking up is a different story.

*A SHORT INTRODUCTION TO THE MANY ARMORS OF IRON MAN: *

by

*Mark Walt Meredith, *

Wrote this to introduce people to the reprinted in compiled book form collected book!!!! Iron Man the Many Armors of Iron Man: _ the ‘Armors of: collects!!!! An issue of: ‘Invincible Iron Man from nearly every armor Anthony Stark the Iron Man has worn: the ‘Armors of: has a comic book reprinted in it where Anthony Stark puts on his red & silver outfit for his first tryout. Obadiah Stane the Iron Monger he has become has made a hostile takeover of Stark Industries while Anthony Stark still has legal rights to his company.
Anthony Stark confronts Obadiah Stane and tells him to relinquish the Iron Man’s company backs to his own control. Obadiah Stane attacks and tries to kill Anthony Stark with the Iron Monger armor as Anthony Stark is wearing the silver/red Iron Man armor. The Obadiah Stane storyline was worked into the movie Iron Man, Iron Man Two the movie as well. You should buy: the ‘Armors of thick reprint collection.
The uber-thick comic can only be described as: cool: the red and silver armor is the same armor that Anthony Stark fought Mick Roorke the Crimson Dynamo/BlackLash in at the Indy 5,000 in Iron Man Two.

Warning, I like to capital, underline titles like the titles uv super-powered heroes names like advertisements of the latest graphic comic reprints so you could see what characters R in th’ essay. You, perhaps, may want t’ buy the reprint of this story, y’know. (Who knows?!??!) I like, also, to artistically change every letter with boldface: italics: capitals: underline: etc.: in addition, this way it all might sound in the mind the way I would read it to you, maybe.
Perhaps it makes me merely seem nuts. That’s for you to decide.

These are Stark the Iron Man’s first ten appearances from the comic book Tales of Suspense comics. Tony Stark is watching a display of the Iron Man’s missiles in the Eastern Hemisphere of the world. Tony trips a bomb and a piece of shrapnel shoots up into the Iron Man’s chest cavity. Rebels capture Tony as a P. O. W. (Prisoner of War.)

See Iron Man’s armor that Iron Man’s armor was based on! It looks just like the first armor Tony created in Iron Man (1) with its gray Hulk-like form, and metal bolts holding it together: its metal treads: like thick iron Timberland combat boots and flame thrower gun: see the first appearance of the first man to become the Crimson Dynamo: Professor Vanko: you won’t believe how old fashioned!!!! In addition, corny Crimson Dynamo looks: those of us that like corny comics!!!! That are so bad they’re good: you’ll love looking at these.
One will not believe how different super-heroes looked back then.

The End

A SHORT INTRODUCTION: IRON MAN: THE
MANY ARMORS OF IRON MAN: ESSAY

by

Mark Walt Meredith

This is a famous story line where Anthony Stark the Iron Man realizes that Anthony Stark was an alcoholic. The Iron Man movie franchise doesn’t want to say the word alcohol-addict but this is a storyline that branches through both Iron Man (One) and Iron Man Two. Robert Downey junior’s bouts with alcohol and drug addiction make Robert Downey junior perfect to play Anthony Stark. See why Robert Downey junior was perfectly chosen by moviemakers for the exact reason that all comic book readers know and probably movie fans such as you don’t.

The End
A Different but Fun Collection 25 Feb 2010
By Raider - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Many Armors of Iron Man collects various issues from Volume 1 that is the first appearances of some of the more prominent and well-liked armors. Featured are stories that include the debuts of the Stealth Armor, the first Space Armor, the Silver Centurion, Deep Sea armor and an issue that is a re-telling of the origin.

The collected issues, be they stand alone or part of an arc, are entertaining so they are not selected just for a gratuitous armor appearance. One of the best things about this collection is that many of these issues are now hard to find. Issue #200 is difficult as it is considered one of if not the best single issue of the character in his nearly fifty year history (and would likely run you half the cost of this collection or more).

This is a rather neat collection because it does not contain one specific arc, and if you are just getting into the character, it is a very good read helping to introduce some important moments not to mention shows an evolution in the armor technology. As I mentioned earlier the issues included are entertaining so it is a good collection to have regardless of its theme.
