Suits Me Fine

im41deathmaskface

You know what else Iron Man should wear? A hat. Since he's doing the turtleneck thing (a.k.a. Marianne) I'd give him an arty beret.. or if it was the 1990's, even an irreverent tuke, maybe with a patch on it, like Captain America's head with a big red "X" over it. I actually have a bunch of those on hand, and I made them all myself! Not that I'm one to bear a grudge, mind you. Anyway, that's what Iron Man could wear on a date. For a business meeting or a DUI hearing, I'd recommend a three-piece suit with a nice fedora or a homburg. For company picnics? A peppermint-striped jacket with a straw boater. For leisurely yachting across New Haven Bay, an18th century British admiral's costume (with epaulettes and everything!) and a Cap'n Crunch hat, rakishly cocked. And for a European beach, speedos and a dab of zinc oxide where his nose is supposed to be.

What about a field jacket with a bunch of pockets and belts? He could wear one of those right? Right?

I thought some hideous, be-suited man was riding on the wing of the plane.

It's stories like this that have given the thought balloon a bad name.

Jon: Or if it was the Image Era, a leather jacket with big impractical spikes on the shoulder!

Bill S.: Amen, brother. Somebody (like maybe an editor, although that title is meaningless at Marvel, as evidenced by the career of Chris Claremont) should have explained to Conway that thought bubbles -- and ellipses -- are a privilege, not a right.

He looks like a Mexican wrestler when they're not in the ring (because they ALWAYS wear the mask):
see?

Verification word: Mlxyzkmx, is he related to a certain imp from the 5th dimension?

MaGnUs: Holy crap, you're right! Maybe he can team up with El Santo and fight an Aztec werewolf robot or something.

Or hook up with some Martian Vampire French Maids.
