Brad - The safari jacket look for Wonder Man debuted in Avengers #167, which was drawn by George Perez.  So if he did the re-design it would have been his second for Wonder Man in about a year (having given him his previous costume in Avengers #161).

Robert, I'm talking about this costume:

 

Which made its debut in AVENGERS 254, IIRC.

I really enjoyed how powerful the Hulk was shown to be in THE INCREDIBLE
HULK #316.

Is that the first time Hawkeye exhibited precognitive abilities?

The second uniform is my favorite. I was really disappointed when he came out in that safari jacket.
Loved the way his was written after he came back from the dead. Unsure of himself and not really believing that he belonged as an Avenger. It has only been within the last couple of years that I found out about the "Hollywood" Simon.

Gah! The red and white Iron Man!

I'd suggested to Mark Gruenwald that the armored Giant Man, in the "Armored Avengers" issue of WHAT IF? looked much more like an IRON Man, in blue and silver, than did the red and gold armor that Tony Stark had sported for so many years. (I still missed the gray!!) I said maybe, since they were tinkering with the design of the armor (and I was in on that) the color could be changed?

But what they did was put him in red and white -- which looked to me like a coloring mistake.

I see what you mean, JB... the blue and silver make for a better color scheme.... never liked that red & white suit tho' (too bulky) . Looking back at this "What If" issue, I missed that version of Iron Man's armor, especially the
helmet/mask-

-C!

I dubbed it the "New Coke" armor years ago, because, well.....

They debuted within months of each other, and lasted about as long to boot.

First step, or at least an early step, on the road that leads to multiple suits of armor for different purposes. "Here's the suit for deep sea diving, here's the suit for outer space..." All things he could do perfectly well in the original armor. When the other suits turned up, I asked "Which one does Robin wear when Batman is injured?"

First time I saw the Silver Centurion suit, I thought it was cool. It looked new and exciting and it sort of typified the impression of looking into the future when I got my hands on imported US comics. The UK versions were a bit behind, so I was still on Secret Wars and Iron Man was red and gold (and Rhodey!) for my UK issues. As time went on though, I found myself longing for the sleeker red and gold version and was happy when they eventually returned to a version of it (inferior as the new version was).

I'm in the minority. I like the red & silver. I DO, however, think it would be very cool in that blue instead of red.

My first impulse when the variant armors started to come out was, "Are they doing this to make more toys?" I thought I was deeply cynical at the time.
