We're ranking every Iron Man in the Marvel comics universe. Along with all Iron Man incarnations that appeared in the comic books, this list also includes alternate versions as well as villains who became Iron Man. Who is your favorite Iron Man?

Several enemies have worn the suit and used the Iron Man alias, like Doctor Doom, Ultron, and Norman Osborn. Other comic book characters who wore Iron Man's armor include James Rhodes, Ben Reilly, and Captain America.
