XIV. BLEEDING EDGE ARMOR


After being hacked by the Skrulls in Secret Invasion, Stark found that the Extremis in his system was completely compromised and, therefore, unusable.

(please log in to view the image)

However, he still had an enhanced biotechnological physiology. And when he was finally able to start picking up the pieces of his life, he decided to create a new suit: the Bleeding Edge armor. A liquid metal nano-tech suit which was a quantum leap ahead in sophistication over his previous armors.


STRENGTH

Here, he flexes and twists steel girders to fashion a prison in Captain America and Iron Man #635:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ngth02CA635.jpg

He can utterly manhandle lesser superstrong opponents like Frenzy. From X-Men Legacy #267:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...enLegacy267.jpg

In terms of striking power, he could dish it out to Hulk-class opponents like Rulk and... the actual Savage Hulk. From Hulk #25 and Avengers Assemble #4:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...gth01Hulk25.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rsAssemble4.jpg

He blitzes Cyclops empowered by half of the Phoenix Force and holds him off for precious moments in Avengers Vs. X-Men #10:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ngth04AvX10.jpg


DURABILITY

The Bleeding Edge armor was a clear upgrade in blunt force durability. The class of foe he was able to engage on a consistent basis proves so. Here, he engages Rogue amped by several superpowers, including She-Hulk's, in X-Men Legacy #267:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...enLegacy267.jpg

He shrugs off a haymaker from Colossonaut in Avengers vol.4 #25:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...vengersv425.jpg

Here he takes shots from Mjolnir in Iron Man/Thor #3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...nt01IMThor3.jpg

Mokk, Breaker of Faith, gave the Bleeding Edge armor a beating with his own enchanted uru hammer in Invincible Iron Man #505:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...unt02IIM505.jpg

The Bleeding Edge armor was durable enough to trade shots with Magneto, amped by the power of celestial bodies in AvX Vs. #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...unt03AvXVs1.jpg

Detroit Steel tries to pierce his armor with a giant saw and is casually dismissed in Invincible Iron Man #32:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...cing01IIM32.jpg

Lethal spider-webs from the Doppelganger have a sharpness measured at .003 microns (3 millionths of a centimeter). And while they exceed his armor's tolerances, they don't shred him or stop him from tearing them off in Carnage #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...g02Carnage1.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

So clearly he was bullet-proof as well. From Avengers Assemble #1, Iron Man 2.0 #2 and Daredevil vol.4 #15:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rsAssemble1.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ing04IM2012.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ing05DDv415.jpg

His resistance against energy attacks was top tier also. He shrugs off Gladiator's heat vision in Annihilators: Earthfall #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...nergy04AEF2.jpg

Thor blasts the Bleeding Edge armor in Iron Man/Thor #3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...gy02IMThor3.jpg

Even more than that, Thor draws forth divine lightning to strike him and while he is staggered, he shakes it off for another attempt in Iron Man/Thor #4:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...gy03IMThor4.jpg

When the Avengers are violently teleported by the Hood wielding the Power, Space and Reality Gems in Avengers vol.4 #11, Iron Man is the first to wake up, among others like the Protector, Luke Cage and Dr. Strange:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...vengersv411.jpg

The Bleeding Edge armor had psychic dampeners installed to keep Xavier out in Avengers vol.4 #8:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Avengersv48.jpg

Ghost tries to hack him and finds his efforts thwarted in Thunderbolts #150:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...derbolts150.jpg

Even hacking devices of the High Evolutionary's are eventually overridden by his countermeasures in Iron Man/Thor #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ng02IMThor2.jpg

His chemical resistance allowed him to resist mystic projectile stomach acid from Hydra D.O.A.'s supervillain, Innards, in Fear Itself: The Fearless #6:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...01Fearless6.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

He even had countermeasures against phasing attacks like Kitty Pryde's in X-Men Legacy #267:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...enLegacy267.jpg

XIV. BLEEDING EDGE ARMOR (cont'd)


SPEED

Remember that feat where the Extremis armor assembled in the middle of a repulsor detonation that exploded next to him before the heat even reached him? The Bleeding Edge armor one-ups it by assembling and protects him by erecting a force-field against a repulsor detonation that exploded from right underneath him in Invincible Iron Man #30-31:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...peed01IIM30.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...peed02IIM31.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

He was "running and processing data from the alpha car while [he] was still in the heart of the repulsor detonation" and knew it was sabotage near instantaneously. From Invincible Iron Man #31:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...s/BESpeed03.jpg


BLASTING POWER

A repulsor ray blast reduces an airliner wing to dust in Avengers Vs. X-Men #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Power07AvX1.jpg

The Bleeding Edge armor buries depowered Juggernaut into a crater in Thunderbolts #150:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...derbolts150.jpg

He sends Mimic to dreamland with a uni-beam blast in X-Men Legacy #267:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...enLegacy267.jpg

He faceplants an amped Ulik with a single blast in Iron Man/Thor #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...er02IMThor2.jpg

Later, he knocks him out with a follow-up in Iron Man/Thor #4:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...er03IMThor4.jpg

Terminus attacks the Avengers and with his helmet breached by Tanarus, the Bleeding Edge armor literally lobotomizes him with a single blast in Mighty Thor vol.2 #9:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ghtyThorv29.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...tingPower06.jpg

Amped by Jupiter's magnetic fields, he sends Magneto reeling in AvX Vs. #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...wer08AvXVs1.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

Amped by New York City's powergrid, he blasts and staggers Mangog in Thunderstrike vol.2 #5:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...erstrikev25.jpg


REPULSOR RAYS

Obviously, his blasting power was increased. But he also refined his non-lethal suppression abilities with his repulsor rays. From Carnage #1 and Iron Man 2.0 #10:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...s01Carnage1.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Rays03IM210.jpg

He could also fire repulsor rays at multiple targets simultaneously in Avengers Assemble #3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rsAssemble3.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

His morphological nanotech abilities permitted him to transform sections of his armor into a fully-powered repulsor cannon. The effect certainly left a mark. From Invincible Iron Man #30, 505 and 516:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...CannonIIM30.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...annonIIM505.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...annonIIM516.jpg

OTHER WEAPONS SYSTEMS

Even though the Bleeding Edge armor was liquid metal nanotech, it was still outfitted with traditional munitions. Here he shoots wrist-mounted missiles at Rulk in Hulk #25:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...silesHulk25.jpg

The Bleeding Edge armor could eject a very large amount of cluster bomblets in Fear Itself: The Fearless #7:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...tsFearless7.jpg

The Bleeding Edge armor could emit ultra-sonics that locks down depowered Juggernaut in violent fashion and takes down Cannonball instantly. From Thunderbolts #150 and X-Men Legacy #267:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...derbolts150.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...enLegacy267.jpg

The Bleeding Edge armor's electrical discharges were much wider and more spectacular in effect. From Invincible Iron Man #500, Iron Man 2.0 #12 and Avengers vol.4 #34:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...hargeIIM500.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...hargeIM2012.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...vengersv434.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

When the Avengers invaded Utopia, he came prepared. He shoots microscopic telepathic tasers, "roughly 17,000 of them" shuts Emma Frost's telepathy down. From Avengers Vs. X-Men #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...cTasersAvX2.jpg

Here, he shoots laser eyebeams that knock out the Protector in Avengers vol.4 #21:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...vengersv421.jpg

Wide array lasers actually home in on over a dozen different targets simultaneously in Avengers vol.4 #24:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...vengersv424.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

A new powerful weapon in his arsenal was an energy blade that could slice right through Mokk, Breaker of Faith's head with a single swipe in Invincible Iron Man #505:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...BladeIIM505.jpg

He also could fire solid light concussors in Carnage #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...orsCarnage2.jpg

A magnetic force pulse is a non-lethal option for keeping well-meaning civilians away from him in Invincible Iron Man #512:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...PulseIIM512.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

A super magnet swarm comprised of "two million neodynium high-grade magnets" staggers Magneto in AvX Vs. #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...SwarmAvXVs1.jpg

The Bleeding Edge armor fires a localized electromagnetic pulse in Living Laser's face. From Avengers: X-Sanction #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...X-Sanction2.jpg

With another electromagnetic pulse, he shuts down everything within several blocks, including the Baxter Building and War Machine's armor. From Iron Man 2.0 #12:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...4-EMPIM2012.jpg

The @#%$ it, fire everything protocol makes a return in Carnage #5:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...colCarnage5.jpg


FORCE-FIELDS

(please log in to view the image)

The Bleeding Edge armor projected powerful force-fields. They could trap and contain opponents. Even powerful ones like the time-displaced Apocalypse in Amazing Spider-Man Annual #39 and Avengers vol.4 #3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ASMAnnual39.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Avengersv43.jpg

He shields himself from an Ultimo's self-destruct explosion and the Protector's attacks in New Avengers vol.2 #17 and Avengers vol.4 #21:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...vengersv217.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...vengersv421.jpg

XIV. BLEEDING EDGE ARMOR (cont'd)


MAGNETISM

He could fire magnetic force pulses in Invincible Iron Man #512:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ism01IIM512.jpg

As seen earlier, the Bleeding Edge armor also had a powerful anti-magnetic arsenal. He combats Magneto with a super magnet swarm in AvX Vs. #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ism02AvXVs1.jpg


ENERGY ABSORPTION

The Bleeding Edge armor absorbs enough power from the New York City power grid to leave it blacked out and staggers Mangog with an amped uni-beam in Thunderstrike vol.2 #5:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...erstrikev25.jpg

He uplinks through several satellites and taps the magnetic field of Jupiter (ten times that of Earth) to overpower Magneto in AvX Vs. #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ion02AvXVs1.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

When depowered in the Microverse, he needs an energy source. He just steals it from Lord Gouzar's entire army. From Avengers vol.4 #34:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...vengersv434.jpg


ENERGY MANIPULATION

The Bleeding Edge armor's energy manipulation was top-tier. Here, he takes Thor's divine lightning and focuses and calibrates it precisely enough to transmute Diablo merged with the Destroyer armor in Iron Man/Thor #4. What makes it more impressive is that the Destroyer armor was amping itself by stealing power from various god pantheons around the world. The discharge also has the side-effect of reverting Thor to his Donald Blake persona and disabling his own armor:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...on01IMThor4.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...pulation01a.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

The Bleeding Edge armor reduces Wonder Man's ionic form and contains him in a small prism prison in Avengers Annual vol.4 #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rsAnnualv41.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ipulation03.jpg

Invisible Woman focuses her force-fields and the Bleeding Edge armor takes them and amplifies them to cover the entirety of Manhattan Island. From Fantastic Four #600:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...tion04FF600.jpg


OTHER ABILITIES

While the Extremis in his system was disabled by the Skrulls, his body was still a platform of biotech physiology. It turns out that when he deleted all knowledge from his mind, autonomous life functions were deleted also. His repulsor tech rig now operates those functions. From Invincible Iron Man #25:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...iologyIIM25.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...r02-Biology.jpg

The autonomous assembly was replaced with liquid metal assembly. And rather than just the undersheath, the entirety of the Bleeding Edge armor was now stored in the hollow of his bones. It added only 25 lbs., yet was stronger than ever. From Invincible Iron Man #25-26 and 30:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...BoneStorage.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...torageIIM26.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...torageIIM30.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

The liquid metal assembly was based on neurokinetic nano-tech morphology. He controlled nanoparticle bundles of iron and platinum with his mind. The armor was inspired by Iron Lad's armor. He liked it so much, he decided he should invent it... and did. From Invincible Iron Man #30 and Young Avengers #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...hologyIIM30.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ngAvengers2.jpg

The neurokinetic nano-tech morphology could implement redesigns of his armor instantly. From Invincible Iron Man #30, 505-06 and Carnage #5:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...cMorphology.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ologyIIM505.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ologyIIM506.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ogyCarnage5.jpg

The precision of the neurokinetic nano-tech morphology could construct a suit only 11 microns thin (one thousandth of a centimeter) that still retained enough fighting capability to tackle a carbonadium-armored Dr. Octopus. From Invincible Iron Man #502:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ologyIIM502.jpg

Since the Bleeding Edge armor was a part of him, he retained full technopathy. That gave him the ability to remote control his suits. From Hulk #26:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ntrolHulk26.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

This technopathy gave him the power to hack top secret U.S. military databases and even Danger's security grid on Utopia. From Avenger Assemble #8 and Avengers Vs. X-Men #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rsAssemble8.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...cking01AvX2.jpg

OTHER ABILITIES

(please log in to view the image)

The Bleeding Edge armor's scanners are "constantly analyzing the particle content of the surrounding air" and tracking extra-terrestrial threats with interstellar radar. From Avengers Vs. X-Men #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...mAnAvenger5.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...nners13AvX1.jpg

He could detect any energy signature recorded by the Avengers. That certainly contributed to his computer systems pinpointing what frequency could shut down a technomorph and narrowing down how to sonically disrupt power transference. From Fear Itself #1, Hulk #26 and Avengers Assemble #3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...FearItself1.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ers05Hulk26.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rsAssemble3.jpg

His scanners could diagnose concussions, track invisible opponents and detect chronal disturbances. From Avenging Spider-Man #3, Thunderbolts #150 and Amazing Spider-Man Annual #39:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Spider-Man3.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...derbolts150.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ASMAnnual39.jpg

His scanners were so acute, he could hear Stane's enhanciles buzzing inside of Sasha Hammer. From Invincible Iron Man #30:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...EScanners03.jpg

And his scanners' sophistication permit him the ability to scan every molecule and particle on a time-displaced Apocalypse and retrace his path and point of origin in the timestream. From Avengers vol.4 #3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Avengersv43.jpg


OTHER ARMOR DEVICES

(please log in to view the image)

The entire suit was covered with repulsor tech liquid lenses. This permitted him extraordinary visual acuity and 360 degree vision. From Invincible Iron Man #29-30:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ners01IIM29.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ners02IIM30.jpg

His repulsor node was also an improvement over the original. A combination of Starktech repulsor technology and Rand electro-magnetics. From Invincible Iron Man #25:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...epulsorNode.jpg

His armor was outfitted with electronic jammers. From Hulk #26:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...mmersHulk26.jpg

His helmet contained psychic dampeners that trigger automatically when telepathy is detected. From Avengers vol.4 #8:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Avengersv48.jpg

A remote tracker can tag along with Rulk while Stark is occupied elsewhere in Hulk #26:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...moteTracker.jpg


ORIGIN

Stark and Reed discuss the after-effects of the Extremis in his body being shut down. After describing how much power is being used to power his brain, he tells Reed he isn't just upgrading, he's elevating the evolution of the Iron Man armor completely. Later, he explains it to Sasha Hammer:

"Well, I met a kid once. He literally came from the future. Wore a suit a lot like mine. But it responded to his thoughts. It was a kind of liquid and it could change shape. Not add mass, per se, but redistribute its mass as he saw it. And I thought -- wouldn't it be amazing, to have a suit like that. For the Iron Man and the pilot to truly be one. For the Iron Man to be able to intuit what the pilot wanted. For the pilot to have self-instinctual control...

Turns out, it was amazing because I built it. And the tech I invented here, today, is still in use all those centuries from now. . . . All of it stored in my bones and charged to run by the R.T. in my chest. Surprisingly light, stronger than ever, and extraordinarily thin. . . . I've become science fiction.
"

The Bleeding Edge armor would eventually be expelled after Mandarin sabotaged his body. From Invincible Iron Man #25, 30 and 517:

XV. MODULAR MARK II ARMOR


Having vented his Bleeding Edge armor and Extremis tech from his body, Stark decided to build a new Modular armor: the Modular Mark II.

(please log in to view the image)

When Pepper Potts asked him why he revisited the Modular armor paradigm in the most recent issues of Iron Man, he responds, "I could create almost anything with the liquid tech... but a specialized tool works better at its specialist task. I could morph a repulsor cannon, sure... but a one purpose unit ups the kick. This is swapping flexibility for effectiveness. This is about making choices and living with them." From Iron Man vol.5 #3.


STRENGTH

When satellites begin falling, the current Modular armor is up to the task of lifting and keeping them aloft and pushing it back into geosynchronous orbit. From Avengers vol.5 #14:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...vengersv514.jpg

He lifts a huge war drone/dragon hybrid into the air in Avengers: Endless Wartime #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...essWartime1.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

The Modular Mark II's striking power was good enough to send a reanimated Abomination reeling in Hulk vol.2 #3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ower01Hulk3.jpg


DURABILITY

With greatly increased blunt force durability, the new Modular armor shrugs off a punch from an Extremis enhancile (which previously had torn apart other armors of his). From Iron Man vol.5 #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...lunt05IMv51.jpg

Here, he withstands a furious assault by the Savage Hulk in Indestructible Hulk #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ctibleHulk2.jpg

And a later one from Doc Green in Avengers & X-Men: Axis #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...lunt06Axis1.jpg

The Modular Mark II armor model withstood a piercing attack from an alternate Terrax the Tamer's axe in New Avengers vol.3 #5:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Avengersv35.jpg

The new Modular armor resists the high temperatures of Extremis enhancile flame attacks in Iron Man vol.5 #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ture02IMv51.jpg

The Modular Mark II's filters were capable of keeping him safe from chemical threats as well such as the Carrion virus out that ended up infecting even Hyperion, from Superior Spider-Man Team-Up #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...-ManTeamup1.jpg

He could completely seal off the Modular Mark II armor from outside hacking attempts. From Iron Man vol.5 #15:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ing01IMv515.jpg

His teammates ensnared, only Tony was able to resist the Red Onslaught's telepathy with his Modular Mark II armor's telepathic inhibitors. Even heroes like Thor, Doc Green and Vision fell to his influence. From Avengers & X-Men: Axis #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ntal01Axis1.jpg


SPEED

The current Modular armor was capable of flying speeds exceeding escape velocity. From Iron Man vol.5 #5:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...peed02IMv55.jpg

Despite having vented all the Bleeding Edge liquid tech from his body, he still possessed an enhanced biotechnological physiology which included his brain. His mind's processing speed was as fast as it ever has, to the point where, he actually entered into a time dilation mode with one-third of his brain that ran hacking program suites. From Iron Man: Fatal Frontier #7:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...alFrontier7.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ularSpeed04.jpg

The other two-thirds of his brain? It processed two entirely separate tasks: (i) engaging in a H2H fight with mercenaries; and (ii) remotely controlling his Modular Mark II armor in a mech fight. All simultaneously. From Iron Man: Fatal Frontier #5-7:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...alFrontier5.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...alFrontier6.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...alFrontier7.jpg


BLASTING POWER

The brand new Modular armor takes out three Extremis enhanciles simultaneously with a taser charge in Iron Man vol.5 #1:

XV. MODULAR MARK II ARMOR


REPULSOR RAYS

(please log in to view the image)

The latest Modular armor was fitted with the latest model Mark IV repulsor rays. From Iron Man vol.5 #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Rays03IMv52.jpg

His targeting system nails the evasive Spider-Man and lays him low with a single volley in Punisher War Zone #4:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...herWarZone4.jpg

And while it comes up short here against a Hulkbuster armor, he could reconfigure his repulsors and let loose a full power single volley in A+X #7:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...orRays05AX7.jpg

Or discharge a close-range, high-pressure repulsor burst with a punch in Iron Man: Fatal Frontier #10:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...lFrontier10.jpg

The plot device abilities of the Modular Mark II's repulsor rays are on full display here in New Avengers vol.3 #21 when a "short-frequency pulse" ends up knocking out Dr. Strange who had channeled an extra-dimensional entity that annihilated the Great Society and threatened two Earths during an Incursion:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...vengersv321.jpg


OTHER WEAPONS SYSTEMS

XVI. SPACE ARMORS


Beyond the general purpose armors, Stark designed several specialty armors.

(please log in to view the image)

While most of Stark's general purpose armors were capable of limited space-flight, he built a series of suits that were designed specifically for the rigors of outer space. Indeed, he currently uses the latest version of the Space armor in his current ongoing.


STRENGTH

While he was outmatched, this version of the Space armor was able to engage in a toe-to-toe knock-down, drag-out fight with Ronan the Accuser in Iron Man #279:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ngth02IM279.jpg

Another Space armor specifically built for the rigors of hypergravity forces caused by riding a constantly accelerating shuttle trades blows with the Titanium Man in Iron Man vol.3 #83:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...gth01IMv383.jpg


DURABILITY

(please log in to view the image)

The rigors of space necessitated that the Space armor be strong and durable to blunt force. Here, the Space armor could withstand a sustained beating by Ronan's Universal Weapon in Iron Man #279:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...lunt01IM279.jpg

This Space armor was at least as durable as Titanium Man's armor. From Iron Man vol.3 #83:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...unt02IMv383.jpg

The harmful ambient radiation one encounters in outer space also requires special shielding to certain energies. Here, his Space armor is coated with refractory coating and protects him from Sunturion's microwave blasts. From Iron Man #143:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ergy01IM143.jpg

Shatterax uses an anti-neutron wave barrage on the Space armor and "a layer of material similar to that used on the fuselage of NASA's space shuttle radiates the unimaginable heat of the blast into the void." From Iron Man #278:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ergy02IM278.jpg

His Space armor utilizes psi-shielding against mental takeovers. From Iron Man vol.5 #9:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ntal01IMv59.jpg


SPEED

Obviously, the Space armor had to achieve at least escape velocities with its flying speed in order to make it into outer space in the first place. From Iron Man #142:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...peed01IM142.jpg

Now, the current Space armor is actually capable of FTL warp speed. Its top speed otherwise is now limited to Mach 10. From Iron Man vol.5 #8 and Iron Man: Fatal Frontier #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...07-FTLIMv58.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...alFrontier1.jpg


WEAPONS SYSTEMS

The current Space armor could use wide-angle repulsor rays that were powerful enough to stop a gigantic tidal wave in Iron Man: Fatal Frontier #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...alFrontier1.jpg

The Saturn V Space armor could fire high frequency repulsor rays that could disrupt plasma bursts. From Iron Man: Fatal Frontier #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...alFrontier2.jpg

The Space armor's uni-beam could emit high intensity light beams and deflector beams. From Iron Man #143:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...beam01IM143.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ceUnibeam02.jpg

The Saturn V Space armor's uni-beam was particularly powerful. From Iron Man: Fatal Frontier #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...alFrontier2.jpg

Despite how draining they were, pulse bolts were a part of his arsenal. From Iron Man #278-79:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...olts01IM278.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...olts02IM279.jpg

The original Space armor could fire low intensity plasma bolts. From Iron Man #257:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...maBoltIM257.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

The Space armor was equipped with tasers for non-lethal suppression. From Iron Man #279:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ns01a-Taser.jpg

Another Space armor contained useful concussion buds. From Iron Man: Bad Blood #4:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...IMBadBlood4.jpg

His current Space armor could equip itself with warp homing missiles that locked onto warp signatures. From Iron Man vol.5 #8:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ssilesIMv58.jpg

OTHER ABILITIES

His Space armor used force-fields that could withstand the Universal Weapon for a short time. From Iron Man #279:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...elds01IM279.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

The current Space armor makes especially liberal use of force-fields. He could even project force-fields around other people. From Guardians of the Galaxy vol.3 #1 and Iron Man vol.5 #6, 11 and 13:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ftheGalaxy1.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...elds02IMv56.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...lds04IMv511.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...lds05IMv513.jpg

With sufficient energy absorption, the force-fields are powerful enough to hold against a huge mass launched from the Moon down to Earth at incredible speeds along with being powerful enough to protect him from within the heart of the atomic blast that follows. From Iron Man: Fatal Frontier #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...alFrontier1.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rcefields07.jpg

But even when running on the lowest reserve power levels provided by his chest unit, the Saturn V Space armor could use force-fields to contain a gigantic blast and extend protection to his foe. From Iron Man: Fatal Frontier #2 and 3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...alFrontier2.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...alFrontier3.jpg

The Space armor could magnetize its own soles or opponent exo-suits. From Iron Man: Bad Blood #4:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...IMBadBlood4.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...IMBadBlood4.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

The Space armor does retain the classic thermocouples that allow it to drain off heat and convert it to power. The thermocouples are so powerful, they can absorb power from tremendous projectiles and even atomic-size blasts. From Iron Man: Fatal Frontier #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...alFrontier1.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rmocouple02.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rmocouple03.jpg

The Space armor's energy absorption circuits are tested when Sunturion's energy form merges with the armor to power his uni-beam in Iron Man #144:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...tion01IM144.jpg

His scanners prove capable of picking up "minute traces of airborne microwave radiation" and "traces of artificial pheromones [and n]euro active gases." From Iron Man #142 and Iron Man vol.5 #9:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ners01IM142.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ners02IMv59.jpg

The Space armor proves capable of hacking Shiar security systems. From Iron Man #278:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...king01IM278.jpg

The Space armor even used cloaking abilities. From Iron Man #278-79:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...oakingIM278.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...oakingIM279.jpg


OTHER ARMOR DEVICES

His first Space armor could disengage exo-unit gauntlets and use them like long-range grapplers. From Iron Man #143 and 258.4:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ntletsIM143.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...tletsIM2484.jpg

Handy auto-cameras retract from his helmet for surveillance. From Iron Man #143:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...CameraIM143.jpg

Another Space armor could use solar sails to lessen the power drain of space flight. From Iron Man: Bad Blood #4:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...-SolarSails.jpg

The Saturn V's Space armor's repulsor batteries could be ejected and detonated. From Iron Man: Fatal Frontier #1-2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...alFrontier2.jpg


ORIGIN

There have been at least seven different models of the Space armor. The first Space armor model was an experimental unit. "I feel strange. Really strange. This prototype possesses enormous power. And yet it feels... bulky, and awkward in normal gravity." From Iron Man #142:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...igin01IM142.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...aceOrigin02.jpg

The next significantly redesigned Space armor was much more refined and combat-ready and put into use during Operation: Galactic Storm. The main problem with the armor: it was designed for use before Stark was diagnosed with neurological atrophy and put incredible strain on his body. From Iron Man #278:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...igin03IM278.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...gin03aIM279.jpg

The next substantial redesign was put to use in the finale to his long-standing feud with Justin Hammer. From Iron Man: Bad Blood #4:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...IMBadBlood4.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...aceOrigin05.jpg

When the events of Long Way Down and The Future concluded, Stark fell into a depression. After finishing his quest to reign in leaked Extremis virus technology, Stark decided to take up a previous invitation made by the Guardians of the Galaxy: join them in outer space. He did. And found himself in a whole new galaxy of trouble. From Avengers Assemble #8 and Iron Man vol.5 #5-6:

http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...aceOrigin09.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...igin11IMv56.jpg

The latest space armor was specifically designed for lunar travel. "[T]he Saturn V armor. All the luxury of my usual suit, inside a crunchy candy shell designed for lunar landing. Six times the power storage, kept in these two repulsor batteries on the back -- feeding into redesigned boot jet that should get me there in just under three hours." From Iron Man: Fatal Frontier #1-2:

XVII. STEALTH ARMORS


The next specialty armor that Tony Stark designed for specialized missions was the Stealth armor.

(please log in to view the image)

One of the more visually memorable armors, it was meant to be invisible and excelled in covert operations. At first, extra armaments and physicality compromised the stealth modes. But Stark continued to refine the cloaking systems and with each model, he honed the combat capabilities and powers available to him.


STRENGTH

The second Stealth armor was physically not a match for the Titanium Man, but it could hold its ground long enough to lift and chuck boulders to buy him time. From Iron Man #229:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ngth01IM229.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

An updated Stealth model was still strong enough to tear steel blast doors several feet thick straight off their hinges in Iron Man Annual #13:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...2IMAnnual13.jpg


DURABILITY

While outclassed by the Titanium Man's strength, the Stealth armor was hardly made out of tin-foil and could resist great blunt force. Here, he resists being crushed by a bear-hug long enough for him to devise an escape plan. From Iron Man #229:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...lunt01IM229.jpg

The Black Panther surprises Stark by using a power glove that simulates superstrength but all it does is get him angry, all per T'Challa's plan. From Black Panther vol.2 #45:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...unt02BPv245.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

Although much thinner than his other suits, the Stealth armor was durable to piercing damage and completely bullet-proof. From Iron Man #229:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...cing02IM229.jpg

Another Stealth armor was designed to combat Black Panther and was made with a "polymer-based structure that's immune to Panther's anti-metal claws." From Black Panther vol.2 #44:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ing01BPv244.jpg

You don't get much more energy-based than Living Laser. And the Stealth armor resists a blitz from him. From Iron Man vol.5 #3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ergy01IMv53.jpg

The Stealth armor proved surprisingly resilient to electromagnetic pulses. Here, a squad of armors remotely controlled is taken out by the Warbound's Stone Ship, "but the Stealth armor is E.M.P. shielded." From Iron Man vol.4 #19:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...EMP01IMv419.jpg

The new Firebrand finds a way around the stealth mode by using her high temperature flames, but doesn't incinerate him by any measure. From Iron Man vol.5 #3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ture01IMv53.jpg

XVII. STEALTH ARMORS (cont'd)


WEAPONS SYSTEMS

The first Stealth armor was actually completely weapons-free. It was "designed to utilize every bit of space for detection and evasion components! And that meant going without my repulsor rays -- or any other active weaponry!" From Iron Man #152:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...nsFreeIM152.jpg

The second model did boast repulsor rays. But only three blasts worth. Ditto for the one he used to take on Black Panther years later. From Iron Man #229 and Black Panther vol.2 #45:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Rays01IM229.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ays02BPv245.jpg

The current Stealth armor had no stated limitation to the number of repulsor ray blasts he could shoot. And while the "repulsor's output would barely tickle someone like the Titanium Man. But the Living Laser? He's no Titanium Man." From Iron Man vol.5 #3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Rays03IMv53.jpg

The Stealth armor could still use the uni-beam for high intensity light beam attacks. From Iron Man Annual #13:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...m01Annual13.jpg

The second Stealth armor had the ability to emit electrical discharges. From Iron Man #244:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...chargeIM244.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

He upgraded that to a powerful plasma discharge when he engaged the Black Panther. From Black Panther vol.2 #45:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...hargeBPv245.jpg

The latest Stealth armor utilizes tasers in Iron Man vol.5 19:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...asersIMv519.jpg

That model could even shoot an electromagnetic pulse to disable Black Panther's tech. From Black Panther vol.2 #45:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...apons03-EMP.jpg

The most current model could discharge sleeping gas. From Iron Man vol.5 #3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...04-GasIMv53.jpg

And equip a new heavy duty taser specifically attuned to Dark Elf physiology and an experimental ring nullifier gun. From Iron Man vol.5 #24:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...asersIMv524.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...vyDutyTaser.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ngNullifier.jpg


ARMOR ABILITIES

It goes without saying that the Stealth armor had several cloaking abilities. That includes chameleonware, lightbenders and image inducers. From Iron Man vol.5 #3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...onwareIM229.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...benderIMv53.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ucer01IMv53.jpg

This level of Stealth armor makes him "invisible to any form of detection Panther currently uses, including his night vision, infrared, and enhanced senses." From Black Panther vol.2 #44:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...uitryBPv244.jpg

The Stealth armor proves capable of hacking H.Y.D.R.A. carrier waves and taking control of an usurped armor. Part and parcel of that was using an electronics jammer to prevent weapons locks. From Iron Man Annual #13:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...g01Annual13.jpg

The Stealth armor was outfitted with scanners. A probe provides for ultrasonic scans and his current model is uplinked to satellites. From Iron Man #152 and Iron Man vol.5 #3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ners01IM152.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ners02IMv53.jpg

The current Stealth armor has painkillers to help him cope with injury. From Iron Man vol.5 #24:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...llersIMv524.jpg

The latest Stealth armor is even modular. He can swap in some heavy offensive weaponry mid-battle in Iron Man vol.5 #22:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...arityIMv522.jpg


ORIGIN

There have been at least five different models of the Stealth armor. The first Stealth armor model was, as usual, an experimental unit. "I realized a need for specialized armor to be used in clandestine situations after radar tracked me to the Starwell space station." As a prototype, he wasn't able to incorporate any weapons systems into it. From Iron Man #152:

(please log in to view the image) (please log in to view the image)

The next model was "a lot slimmer than [his] regular armor, to make it more maneuverable -- which means [he] had to pare down the weapons systems." At the same time, at least it did have some weapons systems, unlike the first version. From Iron Man #229:

(please log in to view the image) (please log in to view the image)

Stark hadn't "fully trusted Panther in a long time -- which explains the modifications [he] made to this . . . Advanced composite ceramics, kevlar-like polymer weave backed by optical fiber networks -- likely fronted by polycarbon head hologram generators, tuned to the IR bandwidth of Panther's 'Night-Vision.' Experimental bio-neural gel-pack circuitry, adaptive logic combat guidance processors, active noise reduction engine. . . . there was no actual metal in the armor." From Black Panther vol.2 #44-45:

(please log in to view the image) (please log in to view the image)

The latest Stealth armor model was his most sophisticated and combat-ready one yet. Although his repulsor output was only 10% of normal, the Stealth armor was resilient and capable enough to beat Living Laser, Firebrand and Vibro. Not too shabby. From Iron Man vol.5 #3:

XVIII. DEEP SEA ARMORS


Another specialty armor was his Deep Sea armor.

(please log in to view the image)

Since his general purpose Iron Man armors could only dive down to certain depths with a limited oxygen supply, Stark constructed a specially pressurized suit.


STRENGTH

One of Stark's Deep Sea armors was actually capable of engaging Namor underwater and giving him trouble in Iron Man vol.4 #12:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...gth01IMv412.jpg

Another gives Namor a toothache with a strike in Wolverine vol.3 #45:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...lverinev345.jpg


DURABILITY

Naturally, the Deep Sea armor was capable of withstanding the crushing pressures of deep sea travel. Here, he functions perfectly fine two miles down in Iron Man #218:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...lunt01IM218.jpg

The deepest known depths of the ocean is several miles deep. So that probably makes this measurement of "100 miles below sea level" incorrect. In any case, he's down really really deep. About as deep as deep can get, apparently. From Wolverine vol.3 #45:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...lverinev345.jpg

Structural integrity is massively important, so Atlantean bladed weaponry fails to overcome its piercing durability in Wolverine vol.3 #45:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...lverinev345.jpg

Simple energy blasts aren't going to breach the suit. From Iron Man #218:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ergy01IM218.jpg


WEAPONS SYSTEMS

He's happy to find out that his repulsor rays function deep underwater. From Iron Man #218:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Rays01IM218.jpg

(please log in to view the image)

He does his best electric eel impression and lets loose an immense electrical discharge in Iron Man #218 and 258.4:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...chargeIM218.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...hargeIM2584.jpg

And underwater combat wouldn't be complete without mini torpedoes. From Iron Man #218:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...niTorpedoes.jpg

The first Deep Sea armor was also equipped with a powerful self-destruct cage. From Iron Man #218:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...trictCharge.jpg


ARMOR ABILITIES

It is only natural for the Deep Sea armor to have built-in sonar scanners. From Iron Man #218:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ners01IM218.jpg

And here Stark takes the underwater theme one step further by installing ink-smokescreens. From Iron Man #218:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...screenIM218.jpg

The first Deep Sea armor also had a partial disassembly function "in case [he] got trapped under debris during salvage operations!" From Iron Man #218:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...trictCharge.jpg

The second Deep Sea armor also had a cloaking function that helped it engage Namor underwater. From Iron Man vol.4 #12:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...akingIMv412.jpg


ORIGIN

There have been at least three different Deep Sea armors. The first one was, unsurprisingly, an experimental prototype. "My regular Iron Man suit can go underwater -- but not for miles. Or stay down for hours. This suit, on the other hand, utilizes the most recent innovations in undersea technology. And was built specifically to withstand the unique conditions of a deep sea environment." Unfortunately, he had to detonate it. From Iron Man #218:

The second version of the Deep Sea armor ended up being stolen and unleashed against the world during Execute Program. A radically different design, it was also far more powerful than the first version as it gave Namor a very hard time underwater. From Iron Man vol.4 #12:

(please log in to view the image)

For the third version, Stark mostly returned to the original design when he lent it to Wolverine in Wolverine vol.3 #45 and when he had to use it during World's Most Wanted in Invincible Iron Man #12:

XIX. HULKBUSTER ARMORS


Special opponents require special preparation.

(please log in to view the image)

Possibly Iron Man's most famous specialty armor, designed entirely around combating a single foe: the Hulkbuster armor.


STRENGTH

If you're going to engage the Hulk, you better be strong enough to go toe-to-toe with him. Stark explains that he's got a "magno-hydraulic pseudomusculature rated at 175 tons..." From Iron Man #305 and Iron Man: The Armor Wars #4:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ngth01IM305.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...3ArmorWars4.jpg

The second Hulkbuster armor was strong enough to literally stomp She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel, Luke Cage, Spider-Man, Wolverine and Captain America. From Iron Man vol.4 #12:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...gth02IMv412.jpg

And it was obviously much stronger than the Extremis armor. From Iron Man vol.4 #12:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...unt02IMv412.jpg

The Extremis Hulkbuster armor was strong enough to send World War Hulk soaring through buildings with a single strike in World War Hulk #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ength04WWH1.jpg


DURABILITY

Especially designed for the Hulk, the only type of durability it required was blunt force resistance. "And with its impact-resistant carbon-composites...", it could literally stand toe-to-toe with Professor Hulk in a slugfest. From Iron Man #305:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...lunt01IM305.jpg

The Extremis Hulkbuster slams into World War Hulk in the sky and the concussive impact tosses helicopters around and blows out windows for blocks around. From World War Hulk #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Blunt03WWH1.jpg

Even blindsided, the Modular Hulkbuster could withstand a direct double-fisted blow straight into its back. From Original Sin: Iron Man vs. Hulk #3:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...nt04OSHvIM3.jpg


WEAPONS SYSTEMS

Repulsor rays are still powerful enough to stagger Professor Hulk in Iron Man #305:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Rays01IM305.jpg

They don't quite keep World War Hulk at bay though in World War Hulk #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rRays02WWH1.jpg

The Extremis Hulkbuster was also equipped with an adamantium-tipped S.P.I.N. Tech needle. From Avengers: The Initiative #4:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Initiative4.jpg

The most recent Modular Hulkbuster utilized a Hulkbuster arsenal that combined repulsors with ultrasonics "deivered with enough force to power a continent." From Original Sin: Hulk vs. Iron Man #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...nicsOSHvIM1.jpg

The Modular Hulkbuster also could deploy gamma blades, countermeasures that generate "line[s] of radiation designed to cut through even his skin." From Original Sin: Hulk vs. Iron Man #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...GammaBlades.jpg


ORIGIN

Historically, there have been at least three separate Hulkbuster armors, not including the most recent Modular Hulkbuster. In Iron Man #218, he tells Banner, "This one, I built just for you. And with its impact-resistant carbon-composites and a magno-hydraulic pseudomusculature rated at 175 tons -- it's more than equal to the job." It would reappear during Iron Man and the Armor Wars #4:

(please log in to view the image) (please log in to view the image) (please log in to view the image)

The second Hulkbuster was commandeered in Execute Program and mopped the floor with the New Avengers. When Stark realized that a subconscious link allowed it to anticipate all of his moves, he was forced to risk his own life to shut both of them down. From Iron Man vol.4 #12:

(please log in to view the image) (please log in to view the image) (please log in to view the image)

The Extremis Hulkbuster was built as an insurance plan in case Hulk ever returned from the Illuminati's exile. Its trump card was the adamantium-tipped S.P.I.N. Tech needle which unfortunately turned out to be a dud because of H.Y.D.R.A. mole, Hardball. The Extremis Hulkbuster was destroyed in its fight with World War Hulk. From Avengers: The Initiative #4 and World War Hulk #1:

XX. HEAVY DUTY ARMORS


Stark did not stop with the famous War Machine armor when he designed armors for pure firepower.

(please log in to view the image)

A cross between the War Machine armors and Hulkbuster armors, there were situations when Iron Man had to go in heavy.


STRENGTH

The most current Heavy Duty armor "could fight a Hulk in this suit." From Iron Man vol.5 #4:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ngth01IMv54.jpg

At the very least, he could tear apart the rogue Recorder 451 in Iron Man vol.5 #15:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...gth02IMv515.jpg


DURABILITY

The Heavy Duty armor was meant for engaging in close-up high-firepower fights. So it only makes sense for it to be durable to piercing damage and be completely bullet-proof. From Iron Man Legacy #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ng01Legacy1.jpg


WEAPONS SYSTEMS

The first Heavy Duty armor actually had autonomous repulsor modules that would float around him and target his enemies. From Spider-Man Family #8:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...-ManFamily8.jpg

One of the Heavy Duty armors was equipped with guided missiles. From Iron Man Legacy #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...dedMissiles.jpg

It was also equipped with a repulsor blade in Iron Man Legacy #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ladeLegacy1.jpg

The most current Heavy Duty armor had repulsor cannons capable of blowing away the heads of Extremis enhanciles. From Iron Man vol.5 #4:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ulsorCannon.jpg

It also had shoulder-mounted tasers. From Iron Man vol.5 #4:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...TasersIMv54.jpg

He also had shoulder-mounted lasers that could fire with precision accuracy:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...oulderLaser.jpg

And a weapons-oriented Heavy Duty armor wouldn't be complete without a @#$% it, fire everything protocol. From Iron Man vol.5 #4 and 15:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...otocolIMv54.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...tocolIMv515.jpg


ARMOR ABILITIES

The current Heavy Duty armor could emit force-field pulses to keep back Extremis demons and deflect energy blasts. From Iron Man vol.5 #4:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...elds01IMv54.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rcefields02.jpg

The current Heavy Duty armor had scanners that used sonar pulses From Iron Man vol.5 #4:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ners01IMv54.jpg


ORIGIN

There have been at least four different Heavy Duty armors. The first version of the Heavy Duty armor was featured in Spider-Man Family #8. It was more than capable of combating the Arsenal robot, a sleeper automaton engineered by Howard Stark in case Nazis won World War II:

(please log in to view the image) (please log in to view the image) (please log in to view the image)

The second one was featured in Execute Program. "It's an experimental composite of carbon nanotube-reinforced ceramics skinned with adamantium." It was eventually put down when Stark slammed an antarctic vibranium laced armor into it. From Iron Man vol.4 #12:

(please log in to view the image)

The third version was featured in Iron Man Legacy #1 when he decided to invade Transia after learning that bastardized versions of his Iron Man armor were being used to slaughter international relief workers:

(please log in to view the image) (please log in to view the image)

The fourth Heavy Duty armor debuted in Iron Man vol.5 #4 when he tracked down thirteen Extremis enhanciles. "Heavy opposition? Close confined area? No room to maneuver? It's going to be a stand-up fight. We go in heavy."

XXI. TUNNELING ARMORS


One of the more specialized armors he's constructed was the Tunneling armor.

(please log in to view the image)

The Tunneling armors were bulky suits built for subterranean operations. They were strong, durable and built like tanks.


STRENGTH

The first Tunneling armor was capable of ragdolling the Thing in Iron Man vol.4 #12:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...gth01IMv412.jpg

The second Tunneling armor could crush Iron Men armor imitations. From Iron Man Legacy #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...th02Legacy2.jpg


DURABILITY

The second Tunneling armor was resistant to piercing damage. Here an energy axe is deflected by the armor in Iron Man Legacy #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ng01Legacy2.jpg

It also tanks energy assaults from sonic howitzers and concentrated microwave pulses. From Iron Man Legacy #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...gy01Legacy2.jpg


WEAPONS SYSTEMS

The second Tunneling armor could fire uni-beams. From Iron Man Legacy #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...beam01IM143.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ceUnibeam02.jpg

Naturally, it also wielded a pair of drills that could be used both for tunneling and offense. From Iron Man Legacy #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...illsLegacy2.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...or02-Drills.jpg


ARMOR ABILITIES

It wouldn't obvious at first, but the first Tunneling armor was capable of flight. From Iron Man vol.4 #12:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...tjetsIMv412.jpg

The first Tunneling armor model utilized an Antarctic vibranium helmet to facilitate tunneling. From Iron Man vol.4 #12:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...aniumHelmet.jpg

The second Tunneling armor was capable of using magnetism. Here, he emits a localized magnetosphere to catch countless bullets and send them back in Iron Man Legacy #2:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...sm01Legacy2.jpg


ORIGIN

There have been at least two Tunneling armors. The first model was commandeered against him in Execute Program. "It's got a shielded Antarctic vibranium helm. And uses a hybrid repulsor-unibeam unit to facilitate subterranean rescues." From Iron Man vol.4 #12:

(please log in to view the image) (please log in to view the image) (please log in to view the image)

The second model was used to cross the Transian border underground to confront an army of repurposed Iron Men. It was eventually destroyed by Doom's army. From Iron Man Legacy #2:

XXII. SINGLE PURPOSE ARMORS


Over the course of Stark's life, he has created many, many armors. Those include general purpose armors, specialty armors and other armors for single purpose use. These single purpose suits were either used by Stark only once or were used by other pilots.


GUARDSMAN ARMOR

The Guardsman armor was the first single purpose armor he created that was a drastic departure from the Iron Man paradigm.

(please log in to view the image)

Developed together with his ally, Kevin O'Brien, it was originally intended to be a backup to the Iron Man armor -- a fail-safe measure that he hoped would never need to be used. Stark never ended up donning the suit himself. When Stark was captured by villains, Kevin O'Brien put on the suit to save him.

However, a malfunction in the armor warped Kevin's personality and turned him from an ally of Stark's into an enemy. Kevin was killed in battle and his brother, Michael, sought the armor out for revenge. Stark and Michael eventually settled their differences and after repairing the malfunctioning units, he inherited the Guardsman armor with Tony's blessing. From Iron Man #43-44:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rigin01IM43.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rigin02IM44.jpg

When the United States designed the Vault, a prison especially for super-villains, they contracted for the Guardsmen armors to serve as security. Stark would design Guardsmen Mark II armors for service in Avengers Spotlight #29:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...Spotlight29.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...manOrigin04.jpg


WAR MACHINE ARMOR

The War Machine armor is the most enduring single purpose armor that Tony Stark invented.

(please log in to view the image)

When Tony's nervous system deteriorated almost past the point of no return, he designed his variable threat assessment armor, the War Machine suit. He wore the suit only once before going on to fake his own death. On his seeming deathbed, he bestowed the armor to his best friend, James Rhodes. Rhodes, who was reluctant to pilot another Iron Man armor after numerous close calls, respected Tony's wishes nonetheless. From Iron Man #281 and 283-84:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...igin01IM281.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...neOrigin02a.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...igin02IM284.jpg

The War Machine armor itself would go through several upgrades and even different iterations that weren't based on Starktech. As this is the Revamped Iron Man Respect Thread, it only focuses on the Stark-driven versions. Indeed, War Machine deserves an entire thread to himself. The most recent War Machine armor debuted in Iron Man 2.0. This version specialized in cloaking and ghost intangibility technology. It was the only model of its kind. From Iron Man 2.0 #1:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rigin03IM23.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ineOrigin04.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...ineOrigin05.jpg


TELEPRESENCE ARMOR

After the surgery to Tony's nervous system was completed, he was still convalescing and remained bedridden.

(please log in to view the image)

During this time, Stark debuted the Neuromimetic Telepresence Unit 150 suit. The armor was operated completely by cybernetic remote control, "Though similar in design to [the Neo-Classic] armor and its remote-controlled counterpart, the NTU-150 incorporates the new SE Telepresence technology, enabling the unit to be operated under full Virtual Control. . . . In contrast to traditional robotic devices, the NTU-150 contains no mechanical framework to mimic the action of the human body. The unit's outer shell is articulated by a multiprocessor-controlled structural integrity field, which allows for a much greater range of movement than would be ordinarily [] feasible.

More importantly, it provides far greater internal space, allowing for an exhaustive range of weapons and defensive systems, data collection/analysis hardware and utility devices of various types.
" The Telepresence armor would eventually be destroyed in combat with Ultimo. From Iron Man #290, 296 and 299:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...igin01IM290.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...nceOrigin02.jpg

http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...igin06IM299.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...nceOrigin07.jpg


THORBUSTER ARMOR

One of the most powerful single-purpose armors Stark has ever created, designed to fight one of his oldest allies: Thor.

(please log in to view the image)

In the Standoff storyline, Thor inherited the Odinforce and the throne of Asgard. He also took a greater personal interest in world affairs and the welfare of his personal worshipers. Having invaded sovereign nations to wage war, Captain America and Iron Man were brought in to halt escalating tensions. Iron Man came prepared with the Thorbuster armor.

Essentially a walking power reactor with a jewel fragment of Asgardian magic at its core, the Thorbuster armor actually absorbed and rechannelled the Odinpower that King Thor wielded and engaged him in a spectacular fight. At the battle's conclusion, both the Thorbuster armor and the trust between the two laid shattered. From Thor vol.2 #56, Iron Man vol.3 #64 and Avengers vol.3 #63:

XXII. SINGLE PURPOSE ARMORS (cont'd)


ABLATIVE ARMOR

When Stark encountered an alien nanoplasm capable of co-opting any materials, including his armor, he had to resort to using a special suit.

(please log in to view the image)

"It's a prototype -- the Ablative Armor Mark I. Ablative, meaning that it's meant to be degraded as it gets hit. See those tiles honeycombing the surface? They're layered on... Each tile's made of a high-impact polymer. When one gets damaged, it pops off, and the next one below it snaps into place. . . .

That structure on the back's a polymer kiln -- it cooks up new tiles, as needed. The suit's force field system then grabs the new tiles and shoots them back into place. It's less robust than the standard model, but if I get hit with more armor-absorbing goo, I can just eject the bad tiles and keep on going.
" From Iron Man vol.3 #71-72:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...in01aIMv371.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...veOrigin02a.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...in03aIMv372.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...veOrigin04a.jpg


GAMMA-PROOF ARMOR

The U.S. government became concerned with dirty bomb terrorism and tasked Stark with developing a radiation-proof suit that would allow a layman to operate within the contaminated area.

(please log in to view the image)

A chance meeting with Bruce Banner took his experiment for a Gamma-Proof armor into a radical direction, "The elements needed to shield the gamma make constructing a flexible, working suit nearly impossible. But we may have an ally in the RG-27 compound... RG-27 not only shields the body from the gamma, but actually breaks down the photons, eventually nullifying the radioactive poisoning. The sticker is that RG-27 is most potent in gas or liquid form. . . .

Hmmm... line the suit with a network of minute irrigation tubes... flowing with RG-27. . . . behind the reservoir system is a second lining -- very thin -- of magnesium oxide. It acts like a magnet to the gamma photons, drawing them into the suit.
"

The Gamma-Proof armor worked to specs, however, Stark exceeded his test protocols and ended up being gamma poisoned. This inevitably led to him engaging the Savage Hulk in a fight with it. From Incredible Hulk vol.2 #72 and 74:

http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...mmaOrigin07.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...mmaOrigin08.jpg


IRON SPIDER ARMOR

In the lead-up to Civil War, Stark enlisted Peter Parker's help. One result of that partnership was the Iron Spider armor.

(please log in to view the image)

"I've incorporated mesh webbing that can allow you to glide for short distances. Heat-resistant kevlar micro-fiber that can resist small-caliber bullets. Built-in fire, police and emergency scanner. Audio and visual amplification, including infrared and ultra-violet... carbon filters in the mouth area to keep out toxins, ad a short-range gps microwave communication system, all routed through a computerized control system in the titanium chestpiece. . . .

The suit can also blend into a variety of backgrounds. . . . The waldoes can pick things up safely and look around corners. . . . they also have limited fighting capabilities...
" What Spider-Man didn't know is that Tony was using the suit's telemetry data to develop counter-measures against Spider-Man himself. Eventually, Peter would abandon its use but the Iron Spider costume would be used by M.V.P.'s clones in the Initiative. From Amazing Spider-Man #529-30, Iron Man vol.4 #14 and Avengers: The Initiative #7:

EXCALIBUR ARMOR

In the finale to the Iron Man/Dr. Doom trilogy, Iron Man: Legacy of Doom, appeared one of the more powerful Iron Man armors to date: the Excalibur armor.

(please log in to view the image)

When an ancient extra-dimensional evil invades Earth, the legendary weapon Excalibur is the key to victory. Possession of the sword makes you invincible; possession of the scabbard makes you invulnerable. Iron Man's Neo-Classic armor merged with the scabbard becoming a construct of pure magical power. Together with Doom, made invincible by wielding the blade, they fought the demon.

But to no avail. They had to complete the full merger and when the blade itself was plunged into the heart of the Excalibur armor, the magicks that poured forth destroyed the evil. In the aftermath, Merlin took custody of Excalibur. From Iron Man: Legacy of Doom #3-4:

XXII. SINGLE PURPOSE ARMORS (cont'd)


IRON PATRIOT ARMOR

After the events of Secret Invasion, Stark was forced to resign from S.H.I.E.L.D. and forfeit all technology to the control of Norman Osborn, Director of H.A.M.M.E.R.

(please log in to view the image)

Despite Stark's efforts to lock down all of his own Iron Man armors, Norman Osborn managed to bypass his security measures with the assistance of Ghost. Using his own genius, he managed to repurpose one of them into the Iron Patriot armor. Nevertheless, "Well, there [were] certain components to the puzzle we're just flat-out missing. The repulsor tech generator that powers the thing. First and foremost. We can replicate a lot of things but Tony Stark's genius isn't one of them." From Dark Avengers #1 and Invincible Iron Man #13:
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...rkAvengers1.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...iotOrigin02.jpg
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...igin03IIM13.jpg

Eventually, Osborn's tenure as head of H.A.M.M.E.R. ended after a mental breakdown caused by Loki. During Siege, Osborn led a disastrous assault on Asgard that ended up reuniting the Avengers and led to his incarceration and forfeiture of his Iron Patriot armor. From Dark Avengers #16:

At some point, a massive drone army of Iron Patriots went rogue under A.I.M.'s control. Lieutenant Colonel James Rhodes was called in by S.H.I.E.L.D. to handle the problem. Rather than fight them, he appealed to their soldier programming as a former Marine. And now, the Iron Patriot is on the side of the good guys. From Secret Avengers vol.2 #6:

RESCUE ARMOR

Pepper Potts was fatally injured by a repulsor detonation at Ezekiel Stane's doing. Her body riddled by shrapnel and too weak to undergo surgery, Stark had to resort to drastic measures.

And thus, the Rescue armor was born. "To enhance her recovery, we put a Stark-Rand electromagnetic repulsor generator inside of her. After it regulated and accelerated her healing process. I gave her the option of keeping it. It made her more human than human. It powered her suit and it made her a super hero. . . .

Pepper's suit, though... it's an extraordinary search and rescue enhancile. Much more paramedic in nature. No explicit weaponry.
" From Invincible Iron Man #4 and 10-11:

Pepper used the Rescue armor throughout Dark Reign. Eventually, in order to bring Stark out of his brain-death, Pepper's Stark-Rand node was needed. But enamored with her time as a super hero, she forced Stark to build her the Rescue Mark II. The Mandarin eventually corrupted the Rescue Mark II's built-in A.I. system and she was forced to destroy the armor forever. From Invincible Iron Man #21, 29, 524 and 526-27:

IRON DESTROYER ARMOR

A time of uncertainty and fear grips the world. During the events of Fear Itself, Odin's elder brother, Cul, summoned the Worthy by summoning mystic hammers from the heavens and transforming its destined wielders into unstoppable engines of destruction to rampage in the Serpent's name. As the Avengers rallied to humanity's defense, Stark understood that they were completely outmatched. At the foot of Odin's realm of Asgard, Tony petitioned the god to let him build weapons worthy of this war -- drinking an entire bottle of wine and sacrificing his years of sobriety and discipline to the god.

One of those weapons was the Iron Destroyer armor, his own Bleeding Edge armor encased in mystic uru and enchanted with the power of Odin. An armor powerful enough to take the fight back to the gods of fear. When Odin sealed Asgard-space off, the enchantment powering the Iron Destroyer left as well.

BLACK ARMOR

As part of an elaborate plan to destroy Tony Stark, Hammer Industries took control of his Iron Man capabilities after convincing the government he was unfit to pilot the armor.

(please log in to view the image)

In response, Stark purged the armor from his body and put in motion his own counter-offensive. James Rhodes, whose death was previously faked, emerged as a new Iron Man in a newly-designed suit of Black armor and has been meeting Stark's enemies head-on. "Your suit. I know there's bits of Stark tech. Resilient tech. Think there's some A.I.M. and S.H.I.E.L.D. stuff in there..." From Invincible Iron Man #515, 517, 522 and 527:

XXII. SINGLE PURPOSE ARMORS (cont'd)


PHOENIX-KILLER ARMOR

Stark has piloted armors to take on men, demons and gods, and even cosmic forces of destruction.

(please log in to view the image)

In Avengers Vs. X-Men, the Avengers are warned of the impending arrival of the Phoenix Force to Earth. Three Avengers teams are formed to tackle three specific tasks: (i) retrieve and relocate Hope from Utopia; (ii) intercept the Phoenix Force in space; and (iii) conceive and execute a plan to destroy the cosmic firebird forever. Stark led the third team.

"At the beginning of space-time, cosmic death and rebirth were only microseconds apart. Clearly, the bird was born in that moment. I've talked to Beast, T'Challa and even Hank -- they all agree... If I'm going to build a Phoenix-killer, I've got to figure out a way to crack universal expansion."

Unfortunately for Stark, while the Phoenix-Killer armor did catastrophically disrupt the firebird, it ended up splintering it into five pieces that bonded with five X-Men. From Avengers Vs. X-Men #4-5:

REBELLION ARMOR

Knee-deep in the events of Long Way Down, Stark discovered that Mandarin has been inside his head -- able to push Stark in directions he chose.

(please log in to view the image)

Under the villain's manipulations, Stark has been working tirelessly side by side with his ex-rival Ezekiel Stane to produce Titanomechs -- machines that will house ancient entities trapped in Mandarin's rings and could lead to the extinction of all life on Earth. Using whatever tools he could spare while persuading various Iron Man adversaries to betray Mandarin, Tony secretly built himself a new suit of armor: the Rebellion armor.

"Being removed from a high-end lab like the ones we have at Resilient meant crafting weapons lacking a certain polish. Still there's a certain something about building death-weapons in a cave -- how does the saying go? 'Polish comes from the cities: wisdom from the desert'?" From Invincible Iron Man #523-25:

THE IRON ARMOR

During Rings of the Mandarin, the Dark Elf, Malekith, managed to steal four rings for his own.

(please log in to view the image)

With the help of magic/tech expert Dark Angel, Tony traveled to Svartalfheim to retrieve the rings. Outnumbered and outgunned, Tony barely escaped alive. After distributing all but one of his rings to his three best generals, Malekith pursued him. Tony might be out-elved, but he retrieved one of the rings. And now that Dark Angel sent him a special suit made of actual iron (a metal that burns elves), Malekith better watch his back!

"Oh, little Elves, lost in the woods. Watch out... or the Iron Man will find you." From Iron Man vol.5 #24-25:
