so i get why there are so many spidermen in the game. there have been many people to take on the name spiderman, there is the spiderverse which adds so many more spiderman. but my question is why are there so few ironmen? correct me if im wrong but isnt there only 1 or 2? i get that 99% of the time iron man is Tony Stark but why cant we have him in his different Suits? like why not have the first actual iron suit Mk 1, or the bleeding edge armor, or Mk 7 aka the stealth suit, or the hulk buster suit or the many other types of suits he has had.

I guess it's already been pointed out that there are two Ironman heroes. One in the base set, one in Secret Wars. As to why: because that's what the designers have decided to put in, though I'm sure Marvel has a say too.

Ranger Rob makes a good point though!

True, but those aren't official UDE designs.

I found this to be odd, too. I "knew" (convinced myself) that the Secret Wars boxes were going to have a few versions of Iron Man, and his various suits for various purposes (Stealth and Hulk Buster being obvious examples) would be excellent reasons for the game having multiple versions of him.

Please, don't give UDE any more ideas about copy characters... :/ At least not until we have all a-side heroes in the game... :/

I wouldn't mind a hulkbuster version, but I think Ironman as a whole is a douche.

Which affects their usefulness not at all.

I find a lot of official UDE designs to be dull and derivative.

I actually find that there being only 2 Iron Man characters is just fine. Some characters are just way too present, and only getting more so. Captain America is the obvious example, with at least 5 versions, 7 if you count Falcon in the mix. Wolverine has 3 and I still say that's too much. Meanwhile, tons of our favorites have yet to become playable at all.

... but this is an old argument...

I can't say with 100% certainty, since I haven't read all of the customs in question, but the few times I do venture into the customs board, I find most of them to be sloppily designed, and unlikely to be anything that would ever actually see print.

You're not alone. I usually end up making my own, because if it's going to be sloppy and ill conceived, it should at least be MY sloppy and ill conceived work.

We have 2 Iron Man - Tony Stark: Regular and Superior.
We have several Spider-Man, but only 3 of these are Peter Parker: regular, black suit and Peter Parker from Civil War.


If anything, the comparison could have been Iron Man (Tony Stark) - Captain America (Steve Rogers).
There are MANY Steve Rogers:
1. Regular
2. Steve Rogers, Director of SHIELD
3. Captain and the Devil
4. Captain America 1941
5. Captain America Secret Avenger

I'd much rather have just one of everyone until we have them all. Then they can start doing different versions.
