Iron Man 3: A guide to Tony Stark’s new armors


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.

 

Mark XLVII

In the first two Iron Man films and Avengers, Tony Stark went through armors Mark I-VII but in ‘Iron Man 3’Image 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.’

Hulkbuster (Codename: Igor/ Brute)

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.

 

 

 

 

 

Ghost Armor

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

 

Stealth Armor

The Iron Man Stealth Armor first appeared in 1981 and was designed very much like the classic Stealth Bomber. Tony Stark created the Stealth Armor because of being easily tracked. While originally designed with only evasion components it was lated upgraded with weapons and plastic/ceramic shell that would protect him against Magneto. Stealth Armor is present in Iron Man 3 poster if you can take a zoom. It is a derivation of the MARK VI armor, with built-in stealth capabilities, which allow him to infiltrate the TEN RINGS’ hideouts unnoticed.

 
 
Hydro Armor

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.

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.

 
 
 
 
 
 
MARK XLII-R – RAPID EVACUATION SITUATION CONTROL UNILATERAL ENFORCER (R.E.S.C.U.E)
This Armor like the H.A.P.P.Y. suit comes with a new A.I., this time modeled after Pepper Potts and modeled with firefighting skills
 
Other rumored Armors
 
MARK XXII – LAYERED PLATING ARMOR v.01
 
While experimenting with various forms of armor formation, TONY STARK designs this armor with the concept of retractable layers. It allows this armor to fold into a more compact form, making it more portable than the MARK V armor. This one resembles the classic/Spandex Armor, v.01 has the horned face, v.02 has the rounded face with a different color palette
 
MARK XV – STORED KINETIC INTEGRATED NETWORK (S.K.I.N) ARMOR
Stark created this while attempting to create a new form of malleable liquid metal that could be configured into other shapes, It looks like the comic SKIN Armor but has huge shoulders.
 
MARK XL – ASGARDIAN DESTROYER ARMOR

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.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
MARK XLII – X01 – PARTICLE RADIATION CANNON ATTACHMENT
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.
 
MARK XLIX – HEART BREAKER v.02

• 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

Mystery Aliens in Loki Army


Avengers Aliens

It’s been a while the Avengers super bowl spot surfaced and we got the first look at the aliens in the Loki’s army with no info on who the aliens are, the only hint we got that Loki after leaving Asgard at the end of Thor made pact with some inter-dimensional gangsters. Here are some theories on who are these mysterious Aliens.

Skrulls/Chittauri : While Joss Whedon denied about Skrulls in the movie he never said anything about Chittauri in the film. In the ultimate universe The Chittauri serve as the ultimate version of Skrulls and since fox owns the rights to Skrulls since they appeared first in Fantastic Four so this can be a safe way for Marvel Studios to design them as a mix of 616 and Ultimate Universe and name them Chittauri. Skrulls have always played an important role in Marvel universe and this can be debut in MCU. But having Skrulls need a lot of backstory to be explained so it is a safe way to go with someone whose origin story is not required or as enormous as the Skrulls

Skrulls-Chittauri

Skrulls

 

Kree: Since random mentions of Captain Marvel in the movie there are chances of Aliens being the Kree but they are not. They not at all have any resemblance with any of the attacking Aliens. The only connection is that after Skrulls, Kree is the most powerful race of planet that can attack earth. Not now but may be in future we will get to see them.

Thanos: WE already had a infinity gauntlet easter egg in the Thor and after that there were fare chances him appearing in Avengers. Also have you noticed how similar the headbands are similar with the one Thanos wears?

 

Thanos

Thanos marvel comics

The New Men AKA Knights of Wundagore: When screenshots of Super bowl teaser first surfaced something that took everybody’s attention was a contraption Loki was riding while chasing Iron Man. The same type of object is used to the New Men who were a creating of High Evolutionary. High Evolutionary always has a role in every cosmic event in Marvel universe. Wundagore is the place where Magneto’s children were born who because two of the most prominent avengers. But after we got clear pictures the aliens looked nothing like them.

 

Knights Of Wundagore

Frost Giants: Loki can always escape to Jotunheim anytime he wants. He have used Forst Giants for a number of purposes, after all he is Laufyson. They don’t even need to have a backstory like Skrulls . The aliens have a striking resemblance to the Jotun Army except for the fact that we know that they use some high tech weapons.

Frost Giants as in Thor film 2011

 

Badoons: Whichever site I have been to seem to have this race as one of their favourite. They have very little backstory to explain and are green in colour like the ones in Loki’s army. The only difference is that they generally don’t use such hi-tech armour.

 

Badoons

Annihilus and his Minions: Though the aliens’ faces have a striking resemblance to ones Annihilus uses but then rights to Annihilation wave is owned by Fox and Fantastic Four franchise so there is a no no about them as well.

 

Annihilation Wave

Sons of Muspell: The Superbowl teaser shows lightening over a building and a dimensional portal opening in the sky. This reminds of an old Thor/ Fantastic Four team up comics where it happened over the Baxter building. Also Muspelheim is one of the realms from Asgard and thus doesn’t requires to have a backstory and simply followed by an invasion.

 

Sons of Muspell

Namor and the Atlantians: Iron Man 2 dropped hints about Namor being in the MCU and we all were with high hopes about getting a Namor movie soon. But the Atlantians are blue in colour rather than the green coloured Aliens in the film.

Atlantians

 

Karbonites: Karbonites were a lesser race which serves as the origin story for Beta Ray Bill. Having Karbonites in Avengers can easily introduce Beta Ray in Thor 2, the only problem is that here only Beta Ray Bill was the one with horse shaped face on that planet and rest of them were humanoids.

 

Beta Ray Bill

Dark Elves: The look is very similar to what we’ve seen, and in a slight design tweak could be mistaken for Skrulls.  Also they originate from those 9 realms.

Dark Elves

 

Breakworlders: Breakworld is just a planet/race of aliens that appeared in The Astonishing X-Men a few years ago.  They have a dark greenish/grey skin, wear armor. And they were created by Joss Whedon himself.

Breakworld Ashtonishing X-men

 

Abyss and the Luminals: We already have seen Dimensional portal opening in the trailers. One of the stories surround this portal and cosmic cube belongs to Luminals. Nova and Cosmo trapped a villain named Abyss and an group made up of many aliens named the Luminals, and while in the Dimensional Envelope Abyss defeated The Luminals and TRANSFORMED THEM INTO HIS OWN ZOMBIE ARMY. They too have a close resemblance to Luminals and this can explain Loki’s interest in the cosmic cube.

Abyss and the Luminals

 

Alpha Centaurians: A group of aliens who invaded earth because water on their planet finished. They have the most close resemblance to the ones in Loki’s Army. The action figures can easily identify them to be one with the number of fingers and three toes. This can be another way to being Namor the Sub-mariner in MCU.

alpha centaurians

Nebula and her Minions: When the statement comes up as interdimensional gangsters who else can fit at this point for Loki to make a deal with. Once Nebula was a dreaded interspace mercenary and a pirate she attacked Earth to gain ultimate powers and use Dr Harker’s atomic compressor. We already saw clips of Thor and Loki holding a mysterious box and leaving Earth with it. Also his army made up of various aliens species so he can easily be tied into the attack. Also Nebula is relates to Thanos so this can serve as a backstory to introduce the big man in Avengers.

 

Nebula

Still there is possibility that someone other than them will totally turns out to be the ones in his army, who knows? For that we’ll have to wait for 2 weeks more.
