The Lai brothers said they created the Radix series in 2001 at a time when Iron Man, who first appeared in comic books in 1963, was still “wearing simple spandex-like attire and minimal armor.”

Did I miss a period of Iron Man's history when he was wearing spandex-like attire?

Yeah, Iron Man has minimal armor.  Always has.  It's not like wearing armor is his thing or something.
