You all be wondering how many and what armors Stark will be using in Iron Man 3 and why so many armors all of a sudden. The Armor collection skips from Mark 8 in Avengers to Mark 47. FYI every armor has a special quality that makes it different with unique powers so here is a glimpse to various suits of Tony Stark and what they can do.
In the first two Iron Man films and Avengers, Tony Stark went through armors Mark I-VII but in ‘Iron Man 3’ he’ll be using Mark 47 (XLVII). The Mark XLVII armor is tied directly in with the Extremis nanotechnology and allows Tony Stark to control it with his mind. The suit is able to fly in separate pieces and wrap itself around Tony as needed. It also allows Tony to remotely control the suit, even when he’s not wearing it.
Deep Space Armor
In the ‘Iron Man’ comics, Stark created his first “Deep Space” suit in the 80s, which included booster jets, a compression gel to protect against G-force and an expanding solar sail to assist with re-entry into the Earth’s atmosphere. ‘Iron Man 3’ will reportedly include a scene where Iron Man travels into space with this new Deep Space armor, a sequence that would lead directly into the cosmic nature of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’
The Hulkbuster is actually an exo-module the wraps on top of the existing armor. Tony Stark used to first to originally battle Crimson Dynamo but battle with Hulk made it famous as Hulkbuster armor. It has a capacity to lift over 175 tons and survive the Hulk’s attacks, the exo-module takes the impact and not affect the main armor directly. The unibeam and repulsers are upgraded and made to cause bigger damage.
While not much idea about this one all we can say is that it looks heavily reinforced with a much larger chest piece.
The Ghost Armor is known as Mark XXVII in the comics and it is made of advance composite ceramic fused with a Kevlar like substance. It features upgrades that help Tony to mix and blend with the surroundings giving an advantage over enemy This armor is included in movie toy line so we can hope that it appears in the movie
The Hydro Armor was created for Deep sea missions, rumors suggest that Tony uses this suit in ‘Iron Man 3’ to search for evidence at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean after his Malibu home is destroyed by Mandarin. This suit looks relatively little like the one in the comics, which looked more like a deep sea diving suit, complete with glass helmet on top. The comic version of the suit included some underwater themed weapons including the ability to charge like an electric eel and shoot ink like a squid.
Hypervelocity Autonomous Personnel Protector
This armor, known affectionately as H.A.P.P.Y. is difficult to get into without divulging some larger ‘Iron Man 3’ spoilers and plot points. But it includes some new and improved A.I. that assists Iron Man in battle.
Stark come up with this armor design after stealing blueprints from SHIELD hellicareer. Based on mecha version of Destroyer it is still an incomplete prototype.
Unable to deal with FIREPOWER’s fiery attacks, TONY STARK designs the PARTICLE RADIATION CANNON to absorb and channel Taggert’s heat against him. It comes with a huge cannon attached to the chest is based on bleeding edge technology.
• Having his armor badly damaged in his battle with the MANDARIN, TONY STARK modifies and upgrades his HEART BREAKER ARMOR into its second version. Equipped with more ARC REACTORS to increase its output and offensive capability, this is the ULTIMATE IRON MAN.
• More cohesive version of the Heart Breaker armor. Color palette based off the initial Ultimate Iron Man armor.
MARK L – EXTREMIS ARMOR
This one is created by perfecting the extermis technology where Armor becomes part of Tony’s body. It is the Hybrid of Bleeding Edge and Extremis Tech.
MARK LI – ORIGINAL ARMOR [ REVISITED]
After all the EXTREMIS technology is disabled by Dr Hansen, TONY STARK is left unable to tap on his newer EXTREMIS-based suits for battle. Having no other options, STARK uses his original armor to battle Mandarin. This brings him to square one, where the movie started
