Iron Man’s virus armor just made its debut in Marvel Comics and proved that it has an important advantage over the Hulkbuster – it can not be hit.
Warning! Spoilers for WEB for Spider-Man # 4 by Marvel Comics below
Marvel Comics just debuted a brand new one Iron Man Armor that may be more effective at fighting the Hulks than the many Hulkbuster suits. IN WEB for Spider-Man # 4, Iron Man takes a hologram look to greet WEB’s students. However, the group of young heroes quickly finds out that the projection has been hacked and the virus armor cannot be easily restrained.
WEB for Spider-Man has seen Tony Stark bring together some of the most talented minds in the Marvel Universe and provide them with facilities to learn and train with advanced technology. However, students including Peter Parker, Harley Keener and Squirrel Girl have faced a hacker who has tried to steal and destroy valuable data from the WEB while tracking down the heavily involved Green Goblin. After arriving in Paris, the team just learned the truth behind the hacker – but first they have to deal with a junky Iron Man hologram.
IN WEB for Spider-Man # 4 by Kevin Shinick, Alberto Alburquerque, Rachelle Rosenberg and VC’s Travis Lanham, Amadeus Cho angrily confronts the WEB students who are not impressed with what has happened, suggesting that one of the students is the target of the green elf. After going over potential suspects behind the Green Goblin mask, Iron Man arrives via hologram. He tells them that he has tracked down the suspects and everyone was accounted for during the attack. But when he forwards what to do next, Iron Man’s hologram is hacked and attacks the students.
The hacked hologram Iron Man turns out to be a huge problem for Amadeus Cho and the WEB students. It hits them with a powerful explosion of energy as the young Hulk’s attack is rendered useless as each blow goes through the projections without impact. While Onome manages to send the hologram back into the computer system, students have to jump into the VR and remove the virus from within. It turns out that Green Goblin is actually Mendel Stromm, a former Spider-Man villain whose body is almost exclusively machine.
Although Tony Stark had no control after the hologram was hacked, he should consider using a version of the virus armor instead of the Hulkbuster. Amadeus Cho’s blow had no effect on the projection. If Stark can control a hologram that can shoot back but not be hit, it seems like a perfect solution to remove the Hulk. Hulkbuster armor is certainly powerful and worth using, but often they are destroyed when the battle is over. With the virus armor, Iron Man could potentially stop the Hulk without taking a single blow.
