Throughout the years of Marvel Comics and the MCU as well, we have seen Tony upgrade his armor every now and then. With advancing technology and new innovations, Tony never fails to impress us with his new additions to his armor. But it looks like Tony has a contest that he cannot win. Surprisingly, the Iron Man armor is inferior to Doctor Doom’s suit in so many ways that you have not thought of!
Who Is Doctor Doom & Armor Features
Doctor Doom, otherwise known as Victor von Doom, is the monarch of Latveria and is the archnemesis of the Fantastic Four. He is easily one of the most powerful and interesting villains in the Marvel Universe. Moreover, he is the sole ruler and monarch of Latveria. In addition, he was introduced to magic at a young age by his mother, a Latverian mystic.
Doctor Doom contests a genius-level intellect completely on par with Reed Richards, Bruce Banner, and Stark That’s why it’s no surprise why they clash in the comics. But Doom’s armor stands out. He has an armor that is nuclear-powered and computer-assisted titanium battle suit. Moreover, it was created in a magical forge in a Tibetan monastery. Interestingly, his knowledge of magic helped him to forge an armor that sets him apart from his rivals. All the more reason why the Iron Man armor is inferior to Doctor Doom.
Iron Man & Doctor Doom’s Armor Comparison
In practicality, both the characters wear armors that are similar in many ways. Doom’s armor offers super-strength with heightened reflexes and senses. It comes equipped with advanced flight and survival systems similar to Iron Man’s. The suit gives the wearer the ability to survive in extreme environments like deep space because of its food, air, water, and waste recycling systems.
Doctor Doom’s suit comes with a direct link to his time platform which allows him to time travel. This is easily one of the most unique features of his suit. Just like Iron Man’s palm cannons, Doom has his iconic finger blasters, hence showing off his armor’s offensive side. Doom uses his armor to amplify his abilities as a sorcerer. This is exactly where Doom surpasses Iron Man in many ways. He is a sorcerer, and that allows him to travel different dimensions. Moreover, this is even supported by his suit.
In my opinion, Doom’s armor is far more lethal than Iron Man’s because it all depends on the wearer. And Doom has fewer morals as compared to Tony. After all, he is a villain. Hence, it seems like Doom’s armor is somehow assisted by his magic capabilities because the armor can generate magical energy blasts. Its other weapons-based offensive capabilities and increases his healing factor to extraordinary levels.
So in my opinion, Doom’s armor wins the debate. Who do you think would win? Is the Iron Man Armor is Inferior to Doctor Doom’s? Let us know in the comments below!
