Stark Industries Tech-Assess: “Tactical Force”
“They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but in this instance I’d rather get flowers, chocolates. An online gift card. Anything but this.
“Continuing my examination of Hydra’s Faux-Vengers after their capture by our resourceful new Agent, I’m taking a look at (snicker) ‘Tactical Force.’ The centerpiece of this rather cheaply thrown-together imitation of my armor (it looks like Hydra got their hands on surplus Guardsman armor from The Vault -- I will have to talk to Chief O’Brien about tightening security over there) is the chestpiece, which tries to emulate my own arc reactor technology through -- wait for it -- that’s right, Iso-8, the gift that keeps giving. They’re able to project something resembling my Uni-Beam with energy generated entirely by a shard of our Wonder Material from Space.
“To continue that theme, the Hydra Agent inside the suit has the same Iso-8 powered subdermal implants relaying video feed of my own moves into his central system so he can copy my style precisely while fighting.
“Though the subterfuge goes only so far. This guy doesn’t have a mustache, much less a beard. Where’s the commitment to the role, man?”
