We all remember those E.D.I.T.H. drones from Spider-Man: Far From Home. The E.D.I.T.H. drones were able to create an illusion. These illusions were considered to be real by any human being. But MCU fans have theorized that they were almost similar to Iron Man suits. If you have seen the film, you can clearly see that the technology used in those drones were the ones also used in Iron Man suits. Now let’s check out the similarities between EDITH drones and Iron Man suits.
Tony Stark’s first AI was J.A.R.V.I.S. The AI character was later taken over by F.R.I.D.A.Y. in Avengers: Age of Ultron. In terms of E.D.I.T.H. drones, the AI was also E.D.I.T.H. They were controlled by Stark’s glasses given by Nick Fury to Parker. Parker transferred the control of those glasses to Quentin Beck. Beck was revealed to be the main villain. Beck was an ex-Stark Industries employee and was masquerading as a superhero. After Beck died, Peter regained control of E.D.I.T.H. and destroyed the drones.
2. Launched from Satellite
Most of us remember that epic fight scene between Iron Man and Hulk in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Bruce Banner turned into Hulk as a result of Wanda’s haunting visions. Stark stopped him with the Hulkbuster, designed by him and Banner. A whole lot of buildings and other properties were destroyed in that scene. Hulkbuster was launched from a satellite. In the same way, even E.D.I.T.H. was launched from the satellite. A good example is where Peter orders E.D.I.T.H. to attack Brad Davis inside the bus.
3. Both can fly
Iron Man was able to fly anywhere with his suit. As seen in Avengers: Infinity War, Iron Man flew outside Earth to rescue Doctor Strange from Maw. Also in 2012’s The Avengers, World Security Council decided to end the invasion by launching a nuclear missile at Midtown Manhattan. Stark intercepted the missile and took it through the wormhole towards the Chitauri fleet. Even the E.D.I.T.H. drones had the ability to fly. In Spider-Man, Far From Home, Quentin Beck used drones to wreak chaos and destruction in various places.
Iron Man suits and E.D.I.T.H. drones have cameras. Iron Man used the cameras to analyze the attack pattern of Steve Rogers and plan his defense attack. In terms of E.D.I.T.H., the cameras allowed Beck to see the live footage. The E.D.I.T.H. drones increased the scale of his illusions and Beck established himself as an Avenger-level hero. He was easily able to attack Peter and his friends. Peter’s friends along with Happy were able to defend themselves from the drone’s attack.
Iron Man suits and E.D.I.T.H. drones had miniguns attached to them. The War Machine suit was also the same like Iron Man. Even War Machine’s suit had a minigun. Stark used the guns to fire bullets at his enemies. The miniguns could also remove any blocks that prevent him from entering anywhere. The miniguns of E.D.I.T.H. drones were also able to fire bullets at anyone on Beck or Parker’s command. Beck used the feature particularly in the climax of Far From Home.
E.D.I.T.H. drones had flamethrowers attached inside them. But even Iron Man suit had one. You all might remember the Mark I suit from Iron Man. It was the first suit designed by Tony Stark. Mark I had a flamethrower that could easily turn enemies into ashes. The flames from E.D.I.T.H. drones were able to destroy a massive amount of property in Far From Home. The Fire Elemental that attacks Prague was formed as a result of those flamethrowers.
7. Red laser
One particular feature that we have noticed in Iron Man suits is the red laser. It is something that has been used by Tony Stark in almost every MCU movie. The red laser can be used to break through any metal and destroy enemies at the same time. The E.D.I.T.H. drones also have the same red laser. While searching for Peter’s friends, an E.D.I.T.H. drone broke its way through a door with that red laser.
The shockwaves were first used in The Incredible Hulk when Hulk is attacked by Ross and Blonksy’s forces. The technology was developed by Stark Industries. It was used by War Machine to stop Wanda Maximoff in Captain America: Civil War when she helps Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes escape. The E.D.I.T.H. drones had the same technology. The drones were able to dodge Spider-Man’s attack by repeatedly hitting him with shockwaves in the climax fight scene of Far From Home.
So these were the features similar between EDITH drones and Iron Man suits.
