From the Chambre Ardente :: Skin Armour?
Even whilst all this is going on*, I am still firmly focused on my ultimate goal… finding the Skin Armour.
And, for a moment there, I almost thought that I’d done it. That I, Incognita Anne etc. etc. etc. had finally tracked down the fabled Skin Armour that once provided the centrepiece of Musrum’s Iron Castle Museum! The fame alone garnered by such a significant discovery would have made those long lonely years of dogged investigation all worthwhile…
Someone told me about that Wikipedia thing, saying that the sum of human knowledge was gathered there. So I went and had a look and badda bam badda bing! There it was… ‘Skin Armour’ …clear as day.
Of course, nothing in life is meant to be that easy.
Turns out that there was a S.K.I.N Armour, the possession of one ‘Iron Man’ – and just one in a very long line of armours. Indeed Iron man a.k.a Tony Stark goes through armour the way most of us change our socks. Frankly, this was one case of the clothes very much making the man. Without his armour, Iron Man was nohing except a soft-bellied geeky rich kid. Still, he had some pretty nice suits. >>
“The golden sections of Iron Man consisted of S.K.I.N, a flexible elastic alloy that can be manipulated to conform to any desired shape. It is lightweight but very dense and is harder than titanium, approaching low-grade Adamantium. S.K.I.N. can be contracted to fit into a small container or stretched/shaped into another form. The alloy's wondrous properties were developed by Askew Technologies, and the exact elements incorporated into the S.K.I.N. remain unknown."
Actually it sounds very practical. Hardwearing. Flexible. I wonder who his tailor is?

*E.g sponge-cat outages, the destruction of large sections of the Museum during the containment measures, Inky’ subsequent disappearance, fresh incursions by that smelly Goblin Nori or whatever itts horrid name is, and now the subtle undermining verging on outright mutiny of Administration.
