So what does /m/ rhink of Iron Man?
Favorite suit? Favorite Story arc? Favorite Tony? (Mainstream 616, Ultimates, MCU, etc.)
He's been my favorite Superhero since I was a kid, granted when I was like 4 I thought he was just a robot.
>Extremis and Civil War
>616 (Civil War)
I will grant that he's not a very good character by himself in the comics, he needs another Superhero as a foil.
I'm iffy on all these armors that can do shit like materialize around him or turn liquid or be stored in his bone marrow or whatever. I know Tony's all about going for futuristic hypertechnology and stuff, but it loses a lot of that Iron Man charm if the armor is not physically assembled out of solid pieces.
Hell, I remember when he used to carry the armor around in a goddamn briefcase. The suitcase armor scene in the second movie was a cool nod to that.
Post some pilot suits that actually look practical.
Time for a Star Trek thread.
What is the best type of ship and why is it the Constellation-class?
Also, a reminder that new Star Trek Online characters can earn bonuses for themselves and other characters on the account via the Delta Recruitment event currently ongoing.

Can we have a /m/-literature thread?
I only ask because when I really think about it, the only thing I can call /m/-literature is Starship Trooper and even then the suits are hardly the focus of the work. And it seems sad that my list includes only a single work.
I really didn't like Starship Troopers. Hell, I don't like anything Heinlein has done. Compared to Clark and Asimov, he really was the weakest of the big three.
There are the various (Mostly untranslated) Gundam Novels, tons of light novels of various different series (which are also untranslated)...
Really, if you want mecha books, you gotta read the moon runes.
Well, there's always Haldeman. Forever War and Forever Peace are the two /m/-related books of his that come to mind, Forever War being the better book, but Forever Peace having the better /m/ parts.
Heinlein was at his best with short stories. The Unpleasant Profession of Johnathan Hoag, And He Built A Crooked House, The Roads Must Roll, etc. are all nice and solid stories, provided you don't ask too much out of them.
I don't know quite why his novels suffered, but the only two I think approached the calibre of his short stories were Moon Is A Harsh Mistress and Door Into Summer (off the top of my head).
I actually have to say Clarke was the weakest, however, at least his most popular...
