Saw this the other day on MSN as they ranked the costumes that movie heroes have wore recently. No real surprise they gave Iron Man a good grade for the armor. For the most part I thought it was an agreeable article, and if nothing elser amusing. If you only care about what they said for IM though:
Iron Man: A http://movies.msn.com/movies/galleryfeature/superhero-costumes
Is King Arthur legendary because of his "Lawyers of the Round Table?" Heck no. Lancelot in a massive, blood-stained iron body suit swinging a mace -- now THAT is legendary. Just ask Guinevere. And this is precisely the appeal of Iron Man. Heavy, destructive, menacing, powerful and best of all, a design that's true to the comic original while still looking modern. The Iron Man costume may, in fact, be the best movie adaptation we've seen.
