The Iron Man armor is the most advanced weapons system on the planet; it is also an extension of the technology that keeps inventor Tony Stark alive. From the jury-rigged Mark 1 to the self-assembling Mark 42, each iteration of the armor has run off the same arc reactor that keeps deadly shrapnel from piercing Tony's heart. But Tony's most important armor is the business suit he wears as the face of Stark Industries, the company he runs with CEO Pepper Potts. Mark I Captured by terrorists and forced to make weapons, Tony Stark instead built a suit of armor and escaped. The Mark I was destroyed on its maiden flight, but the parts were found by Obadiah Stane and used as a template for the Iron Monger armor. Mark II Stark's second, more refined attempt at armor was prone to icing, resulting in a near-fatal drop from the upper stratosphere. The Mark II was temporarily upgraded to serve as James Rhodes' War Machine armor; it has since been reverted. Mark III Stark's first red-and-gold suit was a success, and was used to battle terrorists in Afghanistan. After it was heavily damaged in battle with Stane's Iron Monger suit, Stark did not attempt to repair it. It is currently labeled "Battle Damaged." Mark IV The Mark IV replaced the damaged Mark III, and is very similar in appearance. After it was discovered that the arc reactor in his chest was poisoning him, Tony abandoned the Mark IV, developing a new reactor and a new suit of armor. Tony Stark The genius son of industrialist Howard Stark, Tony was seriously injured by a bomb blast in Afghanistan. The shrapnel in his chest is held at bay by an electromagnet, powered by the same arc reactor that powers his many suits of armor. Pepper Potts Virginia "Pepper" Potts was originally the personal assistant to Tony Stark, in charge of managing his schedule, relationships and art collection. Briefly installed as CEO of Stark Industries, she is now Tony's business partner and love interest. Mark V Collapsing into a box the size of a briefcase, the Mark V is portable and can be put on without robotic assistance. While durable, it still sustained massive damage from Ivan Vanko's energy whips in their Monaco street fight. Mark VI The Mark VI was designed to use a more powerful type of arc reactor made of vibranium. The suit survived a brawl with the Asgardian Thor, but it was seriously damaged when caught in a turbine while repairing the falling SHIELD helicarrier. Mark VII This armor was used to repel the invasion of Earth by the Chitauri. Deploying in a torpedo-shaped form, Stark merged with the Mark VII in mid-air, destroying several Chitauri transports before guiding a nuclear device towards their flagship. Mark XLVII Stark's most high-tech armor, the Mark XLVII is the 42nd suit to come out of his ironworks, and features independently mobile components that can be summoned and assembled with a mental command.
