In the movies Tony will employ multiple armors at once, with of course only one of them manned. This effectively turns him into a one-man super-team. Should he employ the army of armors in the comics? Does it make him too powerful?

If he's fighting an army of aliens or robots...sure.

But he probably shouldn't have 100 Iron robots blasting the Controller in Madison Square Garden.

I prefer for his inventing ability to show a lot more variety than that. Many of the things he does to win battles shouldn't be armor-related at all. Like inventing a nanotech poison and his attacks in armor just being a distraction while it works its way into the villain's system. Or him figuring modifying the phase variance to make the villain's doomsday weapon destroy itself. There should be a real feel that his intellect has depth, and he's not just some one dimensional type who throws armor at every problem.

...I don't mind if he pulls this trick out occasionally...like when overwhelming power or a big distraction is needed.

I hate this very concept; it ruined IM III for me. The whole point behind the "suit of armor" is that it is a man inside making the decisions and NOT a robot/drone. (I guess Shane Black did not watch IM II,)

So to answer your question, "No Tony should not use his army of armors in the comic".
