Poll Position: Armorers Challenge!

bubblegum_crisis_by_tso2me-d33xv4f

 

This weeks Poll Position I ask you to pick from a list of Power Armor wearing heroes and villain to pick your favorite based on  whatever criteria matters most to you.

Your Choices are as follows. The Beetle, The Blue Beetle, Crimson Dynamo, Doctor Doom, Force, Guyver One, Lex Luthor, Rocket Red, Steel, and Tech Jacket. 

These are mostly DC and Marvel characters, but there are a couple dark horses in there ( no pun intended). You may noticed I left a couple well known armor clad individuals off this list which I did for a reason. I did not want the popularity of Ironman and his ilk to slant the poll so I left them off.

  1. I miss Shepard N7 armor from Mass Effect. Iconic body armor.

  2. Blue Beetle, both for the design (which rocks) and the story behind it.

  3. i almost went with Blue Beetle, but then i noticed Luthor on the list. i love the fact that despite having no superpowers he is THE super villain.

  4. Nick Hentschel

    I have a soft spot for Steel, because I loved the concept: not Superman, but someone *inspired* by him, “paying it forward” to the world with what skills and knowledge he had, even if it wasn’t as much. I’d like to think that it’s what I would have done, and it’s a very sound interpretation of what Superman means to his world.

  5. @Nick: Apparently we are the only ones that voted for Steel.

    Also, I failed to notice “others” before I voted…. Wish I’d included the Knight Sabers in there…. (The picture at the top of the post). They are some seriously but-kicking girls.

    Other wasn’t suppose to be on this poll this week, it was the result of a setting I forgot to change on my polldaddy account from last weeks poll where I allowed people to add additional entries.

  7. Ah. Still… Pseudo-vote for the Knight Sabers. ;)

    I had considered adding them to the poll, but first I am not sure if they have a manga series or are purely anime, and secondly I figured One Manga reference with Guyver One.

    I like the Original Anime Series better then the Tokyo 2040 remake but they are both good. For anyone interested in seeing the Knights Saber in action the name of the Anime is Bubblegum Crisis with the original ova’s having a sequel called Bubblegum Crash. The Remake Odiously named Bubblegum Crisis: Tokyo 2040

  9. I vote/hope that the top 2 or 3 winners get parts from their design added to HM3. Keep up the good work Jeff.

    F.Y.I., I voted for Guyver, but Steel was a close second, I agree with what Nick Hentschel said about inspiration.

  10. I voted for the Beetle, because I loved that original Thunderbolts run.

  11. Bael, remember that, by the Thunderbolts {“Justice, Like Lightning!”} run, Beetle was known as MACH-1 (and had a MUCH cooler set of armor, if you ask me)!
    I like Doc Doom, but I consider the armor to be kind of incidental to his character concept…
    He looks good in it, he wears it, it kind of defines who he is… but it’s NOT what makes him dangerous!
    Bio-booster Armor Guyver is downright scary, and powerful, but kinda dorky looking.
    Lex, in the purple and green armor, has a LOT of power, and, it’s Lex… very worrisome, in the hands of a good scriptwriter. On the other hand, it kinda makes the Guyver armor look like the front page of GQ, by comparison! Until I saw that Mangaverse version of Cyclops (Eeek!), I thought it was, hands down, one of the worse costumes EVER!
    I went with Blue Beetle, because he’s got the whole package…
    Awesome power, decent appearance, heroic (if rookie) pilot.

  12. I do, WillyPete. And I do like the Mach 1 armor a little better, but he also wore this rig when he was in Federal custody after Hawkeye made him turn himself in. The picture here is the Govt. built model they had him use.
