Health problems linked to exposure to the power systems led to Stark abandoning this design into a new "safe" armor.
During his status as a fugitive from Norman Osborn, Tony used this armor again while on the run around the world.
Repulsors had variable settings. Like other armors, it maintained a unibeam. Pulse bolts were powerful but power drain limited their usage. In addition to standard sonics, a "sonic ramshot" could now be fired.
Explosive and tear gas pellets were stored in the left gauntlet. Flame-retardant foam was also stored.
The armor's communications with enhanced with a cellular phone and wireless modem.
Sensor upgrades included a Combex/Sonar system and seismographs.
A later add-on was a force bubble projector. This "hamster ball" provided protection for civilians.
A chin toggle was used for convenience (drinking water) and as a backup if the cybernetic link became damaged.
- This armor was originally identified in the All-New Iron Manual as the Model 17, it was later renumbered Model 16 in the Iron Manual.
- Artist Alex Ross had originally co-designed this armor together with writer Kurt Busiek as part of a pitch for an Iron Man run following John Byrne's departure from the series with issue #277. When Busiek relaunched the series with Iron Man Vol 3 #1, he suggested using Ross' armor design, adding glowing details based on CGI renderings made by Iron Man fan Allen Bujak.
