    Default Man of STEEL: John Henry Irons Appreciation 2021

    At the end of the year, all Appreciation threads are closed and new threads for the coming year are put in place.

    Appreciation threads are for just that - Appreciation. Not for debate, not for slamming and not for bringing other characters down by comparison.

    Happy New Years everyone discuss all thing Steel here

    He featured prominently in DC's last Superfamily promotional piece. Hope that means Dr. Irons has some cool moments in the future.

    Fingers crossed we’ll be getting something with Irons playing a major part soon!



    If Clark needs help with tech or something sophisticated he should be going to Irons and not Batman. C’mon use the Superfamily more writers!

    That would require writers know about the Superfamily.

    I agree, naturally.

    I was originally going to make this a thread dedicated to both of them but I couldn't figure out a way to flip the title.

    If DC actually brings her back and uses her we can still use this thread to talk about her if everyone is ok with it. I miss Natasha’s big mecha:


    With all the waste Lexcorp dumps in the bay I’m sure Metropolis occasionally has to fight Kaijus lol.

    Also what did you guys think of this as first gen “proto suit” for Irons?

    It might be all the cold around him, but those circular goggles just say Mr. Freeze to me. Like if you cover everything and just have his head showing, bald stoic man with those goggles? It's Mr. Freeze. It's a cool design, and I like it as a rough draft of the steel suit to a degree, but I dunno. I kind of like the almost jankier, rivet-worn look to Steel costumes. This is a little high tech. More plate would probably help it in my mind, but it's not bad.

    I love the idea that John and Natasha are Kaiju special ists. Holy shit that rules.

    Seriously, "special-ists" (remove the hyphen) is censored and not "shit?"

    I'm fine with it, Natasha is more than welcome.

    Good as time as any to remind people Steel will be in Jurgens Generations two parter, Shattered and Forged. Jurgens has never really wowed me but he’s usually at least decent. Hopefully it will tide us over until we find out if Steel will be playing a role in what’s to come.

    Shattered


    Forged
