One of the more technologically advanced armors in Tony Stark's arsenal is the Iron Man Model 30, otherwise known as the Extremis armor. While it's been said that the upcoming "Iron Man 3" will be based in part on the "Extremis" storyline, written by Warren Ellis and illustrated by Adi Granov, we still have no major clues as to how the Extremis "virus," or so it's been called, will play into the film.
"It's not a virus," explains Granov in a recent interview with MTV Splash Page. "It's nano technology which gives the 'infected' superpowers. At least that's how I understand it."
Despite the fact that we have yet to see a full blown adaptation of "Extremis," there have certainly been design aspects from previous Marvel films that are largely based on the Extremis armor. Which is no coincidence considering that Granov has been a conceptual designer for Marvel Studios since 2008.
