Iron Patriot Drones[]

Iron Patriot Drones are a legion of self-automated machines based on the Iron Patriot armor used by A.I.M. to frame America for various international acts of terrorism.


In an attempt to frame the American government for terrorist acts, the terrorist organization A.I.M. used the blueprints of the Iron Patriot to create their own Iron Patriot robots.


Following the Siege of Asgard, wherein Norman Osborn attempted to attack the kingdom of Asgard, Osborn was arrested and his organization H.A.M.M.E.R. was dismantled and the United States Department of Defense acquired all of their assets, including Norman Osborn's Iron Patriot armor.  Modification were made to the design to create a drone with base level artificial intelligence. At a weapons expo, agents of the technology and science focused terrorist organization A.I.M. (Advanced Idea Mechanics) stole the complete Iron Patriot drone. A.I.M. then used their knowledge to increase the artificial intelligence capacity and mass produced them from an assembly in China and used them to incriminate the US in a series of attacks.
