The Iron Man 3 action figures suck.
Why'd they jump back to the five points of articulation?  They're like the old Kenner Star Wars figures from the '70s.

Nothing is cooler than the "classic" red & gold armor from the late 70s/early 80s.

It's kind of like the "LamborghiniCountach" of Iron Man armors - Lamborghini will never be able to make a car that looks cooler than the Countach, and no artist/designer at Marvel will ever improve on the look of the "Mark V" Iron Man armor.

Not that most of the armors aren't pretty cool. But they aren't AS cool.

Can anyone explain the hulkbuster suit? Or attempt to?

I though hulk was of the 'infinite strength' type, so in comics does it even let stark stand up to hulk for seconds, let alone trade punches?

The Hulkbuster armor is a heavy-duty exo-frame (an add-on to the Mk. XI Modular Armor) designed for maximum strength amplification at the cost of reduced versatility and mobility. As its name suggests, it was specifically designed for hand-to-hand combat with the rampaging. The armor was rated with a lift (press) capacity of 175 tons. During its maiden run, the armor enabled Stark to hold his own in sustained physical combat with the Hulk.

From World War Hulk, the new Hulkbuster suit didn't last too long against him.  I think the only man made substances that can withstand the brute force of the Hulk is adamantium and Captain America's shield.

This may be a stupid idea, but what if it's a space suit for the Hulk?  Most of the Avengers can wear NASA standard issue, but the first time Banner gets pissed off the Hulk will be left in vacuum wearing just his purple boxer shorts.  Of course, they probably addressed this in the comics years ago.

My understanding of the hulk (and I've only glanced at wikis) is that, modern writing says he just gets stronger as time goes on in combat, since he gets angrier?

I know there's a lot of variance in power over time.

There is much argument about this.  From what I can gather, the shield is an alloy of vibranium and steel/iron.  I remember reading that it was an accidental creation so when they tried to reverse engineer it and they came up with adamantium.

In the comics, his shield is the only known adamantium-vibranium alloy that exists  (or at least it used to be, 20 years ago when I still knew everything about Marvel.  Now it's probably made of plastic).  It allows him to do all those cool bounce tricks and whatnot.

In the comics, Cap's shield is an Andamantium/Vibranium alloy. Vibranium has some incredibly unique physical properties depending on whether it's antarctic or Wakandan variety but the end result is that the edges amplify its "bounciness" and the front of the shield more or less completely defies the preservation of inertia... though the first OHotMU also mentioned that there was a Stark-made inertial dampener between the shield and its handle. Whichever of Cap or the Winter Soldier isn't carrying the real shield will often have a "solid light" shield that's generated from a bracer on his left arm. The solid light shield can be thrown and has more or less identical properties to the real one, but it can be broken.
USAgent most often used a shield that was plain old Vibranium.

The movie version of the shield is Vibranium. and Steel I suspect that the idea of adamantium is part of the X-Men/Wolverine IP that's been granted to Fox.

Anyway, yeah, I think the Hulk Armor being shown looks a lot more like armor for the Hulk, if only because of the silly posture.

It was vibranium and steel, but it's been mistakenly said to be vibranium and adamantium many times.  In any case, it's a completely unique alloy and only two such shields exist in the 616 universe (one is Cap's, the other was brought to 616 from an alternate timeline by Vance Astro in Guardians of the Galaxy...don't know where that one ended up, but it's not on Earth...and yes, Rocket Raccoon really wanted to throw it around).

Currently Cap's shield has got a third ingredient - Uru, the same metal Mjolnir is made from.  The shield was damaged and Odin had it repaired with Uru, which also means it returns like the hammer, though Cap was already good at making it return.

It was my impression that Uru was just a mystical ore that is very resilient to damage.  It is my impression that the ability of Mjolnir to return back to Thor when called upon is due to a mystical enchantment placed upon the hammer and not a native ability of Uru.  Then again, I could be totally wrong about that.

Also, if I remember correctly, Tony had a Thor-buster armour set too for those occasional times when Thor went crazy and tanked through everyone.

What I don't understand is why if they are bringing in Hulkbuster armor, and they already have decent looking Hulkbuster designs in the movie armor style, why does the "official" Hulkbuster armor basically toss aside all this and look so lame?

No, you're right.

It's not that the hammer is so heavy no one can lift it, it's all in the enchantment.  But Uru was supposed to be some super-rare space metal, about on par with Vibranium.

My guess is because the Marvel Universe basically removes the Norse pantheon from any place of true godhood.  They're aliens.  They have significant technology that crosses the line into magic, but they're basically aliens.  They're not incorporeal beings that existed from the beginning of the universe that they created.  They're grand emperors and princes of a massive galactic empire with lots of resources and a very strong mystic tradition, but they're little different than the Kryptonians in the DC universe, though they're realm is larger and more grand, and not in easily reachable by traveling in Euclidean space.

True, but what matters to them is whether it feels like a threat.  Odin, Loki, and Thor in the Marvel comics universe doesn't represent much of a perceived threat to them, due to they way they are presented - emperors and princes.  Descending into the pits of hell to make a deal with Satan for a soul doesn't feel like any more of a threat than "The Devil and Daniel Webster".  It's all understood and easily dismissed.  They understand it, and these tropes are common to literature of all types.

However, D&D was scary because it has audience participation, and very few understood what was going on.  Fear of the unknown.  Put Jesus in those comics as a specific entity with a created backstory, a set of defined powers and an agenda, and the second it makes it way out of obscurity into the mainstream of comics, watch the fundies lose their shiat.  That's a threat to them.  You're openly defining their god, and assigning him a mortal agenda, a political stance, and controlling his actions through creative writing.

And I always liked how Strange (and/or Agamotto) always handed him his bald ass in one form or another.  Something satisfying about a fanatic being hoisted by his own petard.

Pants_Optional: I preferred the silver/red centurion suit. Probably because it's the one I grew up reading.

Why do I subconsciously think that JJ Abrams was behind the design of that armor?

Orgasmatron138: crab66: I thought the human side of the hulk was one of the worst things about the Avengers.

Huh, i thought it was one of the best things about the movie.  Mark Ruffalo did more in his screen time to establish the character than the two Hulk movies combined.


I'm not a Marvel fanboy, and couldn't give two shiats about any of these guys before the movies, but I thought Ruffalo hit an absolute home-run with his Banner.  Might not be true to comics, but I really loved what he did with the character.  This brilliant man, with all that unwanted, near-uncontrollable power, with no way out even if he tried to kill himself - he made me give a shiat.  Everyone was quite good in this.  It's a fun movie I pull out whenever I want to watch something fun and entertaining.  Captain America was kind of the odd-man out, but that fit his man-from-the-past situation, so it worked too.

Silver centurian is my favorite
But most of my ironman comics feature Rhode in the mark v and the ironman turbo roller skates.

Look it up, its hysterical.
Even when I was 8 I thought it was lame.

No Such Agency: Dr. Whoof:
Currently Cap's shield has got a third ingredient - Uru, the same metal Mjolnir is made from.

Oh for fark's sake.  And, why do the Christians never protest the fact that in Marvel Comics, the Norse pantheon* is demonstrably real, whereas Yahweh and Jesus are still only imaginary people that Nightcrawler talks to at night?

* huh huh, you said "áss"


I think even the Christians realize that Thor is a better superhero than Jesus. Also the all encompassing 'The Lord works in mysterious ways' explanation.

I thought the suit he rigged together in Afghanistan during the first movie was the coolest.

It was a tribute to the Mark I that he was introduced with back in the day.  Except then it was to escape commie jaundiced Asians, not sunburned Arabs hired by his business partner to kill him.

Yeah, let's have the fanboys dictate what's up in the movies.  That always works so well.

The Asgardians in the comics don't have advanced technology that looks like magic to we primitive screwheads, they have actual magic. They are aliens, as are all the mythological gods, but they come from a magic-based universe instead of another planet within the regular 616. Odin is basically the same as Dormammu, who are both on their way towards power levels like the Vishanti, Cyttorak, etc...

Yeah, I was kindof disappointed in that aspect of the films.  "We better subtly hint that this is all technology and not magic, cause you know if there's anything people don't like it's magic in a movie about Norse gods and their friends with the flying armour, frozen man, and gains-extra-mass-somehow guy."

That line in the Avengers where Thor says, "...in Asgard we like to think of ourselves as more advanced." made me cringe.  Similarly when Loki said, "The human think us immortal.  Should we test that?"

I wonder if this will be addressed in a Dr. Strange movie (if it ever gets made).  Also, the power of the cosmic cube is also pretty magical since it can basically grant any and all of your wishes.

You should probably not read The Mighty Thor.

I do.  Been reading all the Thor stuff since the 80s.  Yes, gods can die, but it takes alot more than being dropped in a hulk-cage.  They also come back.  In Thor comics, Ragnarok is a cycle that repeats over and over again.  For all intents and purposes they are immortal barring extreme circumstances.  (if that's what you're referring to)

An even when 'dead'  they are really sort of 'alive' in Hel or Valhalla.  They just moved around a bit.  And if one is so inclined they can be dragged back out.  Anyway, regardless of that, I just really disliked the turning magic into tech aspect of things.  Seemed like a weird editorial action given everything else in the films.

/I think in the animated EMH they even tried to make Stark able to 'analyze' Asgardian magic as advanced energy or something.

The post Fall of Asgard Mighty Thor comics have both humans and Asgardians referring to their magic as "technology", was my point. They also have a baptist minister take Silver Surfer's place as Herald of Galactus because he wanted to be in the presence of a real God. The Agardians even make special "space suits" to go fight Galactus. Anyways, I'm not as opposed to or offended by the whole technology/magic thing because A) I didn't grow up on Thor and B) It doesn't really take away from the overall impact of their powers/abilities. Sure, magic is more mysterious, but we live in a different world than we did 30 years ago. People don't want excuses, they want a reason. I don't think it really has much to do with someone at Marvel being afraid of incurring Christian wrath, I think they just wanted to make a more cohesive universe, or at least one that was more in tune with the movies. I mean, clearly they can't just eliminate all magic and just call it technology, because where would Heroes/villains like Dr. Strange, Enchantress, Juggarnaught, Scarlet Witch (yes I know she's a mutant, it's still magic to me, dammit) and Iron Fist be? Their powers either consist of or are bestowed by magic.
