TRDL - Iron Man XIV by TRDLcomics TRDL - Iron Man XIV by TRDLcomics
TRDL 2012 Series, No. 30 - Iron Man XIV Armor [Mark I]

This was done as part of my ongoing TRDL Iron Man Series, where i attempt to draw every Iron Man armor (and a few other characters from the books) for science.

This is another of the armor designs I never really liked. It appeared after the Silver Centurion armor, which I DID love, though it is a bit dated these days. But from here, we entered the difficult late 80s/all-90s period where I disliked almost everything coming out of mainstream Marvel and DC art-wise and design-wise, and this is no different. The description of the armor was that it was 'oversized' and 'clunky' yet it owes more to Flashdance than anything else, with the tube boots (leg warmers scrunched down) and slimline body armor (leotard)... I know I'm being harsh. But then he's got armored underwear, and an armored bare midrif-shoulderpads thing going on. I just never got it, despite the solid art on the book early on. But hey, I resisted the urge to redesign and just went at it.

I think the Silver Centurion armor was awesome.

As to the "leotard look" - I always liked the magnetically reinforced chainmail that he could fold into a briefcase... you know... the Mk III types...
