NeA reprise . . . "Nothing much."

Pieced together from the spare parts and scraps Tony scrounged from his "Mr. Fix-it" gig at Bistro Electronics, The Rehab Gray Armor, Model XI, Mark I, was first seen in pieces in Iron Man #188. Tony swore that he would never put it on, blaming the armor--its protective shell  MORE ...

Encephalo Remote ArmorM XV, M I

In #258, Tony Stark tested a special suit controlled by revolutionarily new encephalo-circuits in his Model XIV helmet. In short, Model XV started life as nothing more than a modified version of the Model XIV Armor—an empty suit run by remote control.
