The average fan is probably wondering why Iron Man would need so many suits. Well, as you undoubtedly already know about technology, things can become obsolete pretty quickly. Plus, since Iron Man is always at the frontlines of every fray, he’s going to need a backup just in case.
One of Iron Man’s most iconic suits, the Silver Centurion, made its appearance in Iron Man 3. This suit debuted in the comics in 1985 after Tony hadn’t been seen wearing a suit for two years. This suit was crafted as a part of the Iron Legion sometime after the battle in New York.
