Many moons ago we brought you a Top 5 list of our favorite costumes across various mediums. This time Biff and Martian Luthor Kang revisited the idea with a keen eye and a finer toothed comb.
5) Iron Man Armor (MK III)
Iron Man’s well known red and gold armor is a masterwork of sleekness and simplicity, but it never stood out to me. Maybe because it has existed for the entire time I’ve been alive. Yet when I dove back and saw him for the first time with that armor and the oh-so 1960’s horns on it, I knew I was looking at something special. Designed by the legendary Steve Ditko the horned look didn’t stick around long, but man do I wish it did.
Bonus: The original giant silver armor (MK I) and the original giant gold armor (MK II)
I completely get why these were redesigned especially since they seem so incredibly bulky, but I just love that vintage 1960’s Sci-Fi B-Movie look.
Nothing on the shelves looks quite like Francesco Francavilla’s pulp crime fighter, The Black Beetle. As we wait for the second miniseries Necrolgogue to be released I thought we’d step back in time and take a look at the debut storyline, No Way Out.
A few months ago all 4 issues of The Black Beetle’s inaugural miniseries along with a zero issue (that was originally published in segments for Dark Horse Presents) were collected into a gorgeous hardcover and released.
