It’s been almost a decade since Iron Man got on the big screen and since that time, Tony Stark has been seen wearing various cool Iron Man suits. The first one was Mark I that Tony built in a cave while he was held captive by the terrorist group called The Ten Rings. Inspired by what it could do, he started building a bunch of upgraded suits. All of them are powered by the arc-reactor operated in his chest and can shoot high-energy repulsor beams.

Iron Man Suits are extremely rigid since they are made up of a highly strong gold-platinum alloy. They can endure extreme damage inflicted upon them and can easily face things like…

This tank's shell …

A severe squeeze from the Iron Monger…

High under-water pressures…

The God of Thunder...

Crushing force of the Helicarrier fan…

A ferocious fight with the green beast…

I'm awesome.
I'm awesome.

So as you can see, the suits can withstand nearly anything unless…

It’s this moving truck…

Or this bridge…

Or just these regular goons…

Yes Tony, I'm confused too.
Yes Tony, I'm confused too.

Well, the answer to this is pretty simple. The power of the suits lies with their wielder and not in the machinery. Tony himself was in the suits when they proved their strength. Whereas, they easily fell apart when nobody was in them. So that must mean the suits function properly only when someone is inside them.

But how can a human inside the suits prevent them from falling apart? Maybe it’s that the arc reactor inside Tony’s chest is stronger than the ones installed in some his suits? If that’s the case, Rhodey’s Iron Patriot and War Machine suits seem quite tough too although Rhodey’ suits have a normal arc reactor.

The only conclusion that builds up from the above facts is that the Iron Man suits are stiff only if someone's in them.
