In the Zoom Suit comic book, Myles Mason mistakes the alien suit as the answer to his prayers when it falls from the sky, but in real life the Zoom Suit was created by the team behind the popular HALO armor – Nightmare Armor Studios.

"It's exciting and very original", Said Sid Garrand of Nightmare Armor Studios. "We manufactured the best armored suit possible. With chrome plated parts, candy apple green and blue painted parts and green LEDs to match the alien glow featured in the comic and animation. It's an amazing piece that we're very proud of.

The 12 year old hero stands just 5 feet high, but will be a major presence at the Zoom Suit booth and on the floor at Hero Con beginning on Friday, June 30th 2006.

"Visit us and get a photo with Zoom", said Zoom Suit creator John Taddeo. "Although, this thing weighs like 50 pounds, so get here before Myles passes out from exhaustion."
