The Evolution of 8 Superheroes, Then and Now.

5. Iron Man

Iron Man is unarguably one of the suavest superheroes out there. Making his debut in 1968, Iron Man, this series ran for almost 30 years, coming to an end in 1996. A second series, taking place in a parallel universe, was soon introduced, and this ran for 13 issues; a third volume ran 89 issues, coming to an end in 2004. 2005 saw the fourth series, titled The Invincible Iron Man.

In 2008, Iron Man was released in theatres, with Robert Downey Jr. playing Tony Stark. He reprised his role in later film sequels and adaptations, such as Iron Man 2, Iron Man 3 The Avengers, and Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Exo Man, although in no way related to Iron Man, holds a striking similarity in the iron suit that he, like Iron Man, dons, and, in this manner, he is something of a precursor to Iron Man. You can see the similarities, of course.(source)
