Hollywood Daze: Iron Man’s Armour in Age of Ultron
There are a lot of different aspects to the Age of Ultron Avengers film. There has been a lot of discussion regarding the Ironman Hulkbuster suit – first appearing in Ironman #304. This book has spiked up in price in the past few months selling for about $20 – $40.
Another Ironman armour that will appear in the upcoming film is the Bleeding-Edge Iron Man Armour. This armour was created by Matt Fraction during his Invincible Iron Man run. The Bleeding-Edge Armour suit is always inside of Tony Stark and he can command it to appear – this is because he needs his armour to live to run the repulsor technology running his heart.
This armour ALREADY has Hot Toy and adult collector action figures, however, the Disney Store now has an exclusive Marvel Legends figure featuring the armour.
SO what does this mean? Making action figures with this armour and distinguishing it as a special suit shows that the Bleeding Armour Iron Man is in the Marvel Universe to stay. A good book to be looking for and buying now would be that costume’s first appearance – Largely undervalued – and findable for under $4 – The Invincible Iron Man #25. This book also features the first appearance of Detroit Steel – a villain that based on its backstory will appear again in Iron Man story lines.
This book had two standard covers and several variants including Robert Downey Jr. Movie variants – and once people realize its significance has only one place to go. Up.
