Following this trailer, the internet got crazy about Iron Man new armors, there’s been a lot of speculations (also on my end) but it seems that somebody on 4chan revealed what’s what.
(Warning, major spoilers ahead)
Looks like there’s a new facebook app that allows to take a peek at the new armors, there’s one unlocked every day.
I’ll have to sort them out between confirmed and supposed armors.
And as you can see in this poster: Some of the suits come from the water after his house was destroyed. Here’s another shot from the trailer. I tried to attach the right image to each description but most of them are still speculations, i’ll update when i get more info.
MARK 39 – SUB ORBITAL SUIT “GEMINI”
(Previously known as MARK 48 – SPACE ARMOR v.01)
After experiencing the CHITAURI attack in “THE AVENGERS”, TONY STARK has been working on a suit capable of space travel. Crafted using a unique new metal alloy that absorbs his ARC REACTOR energy signature, IRON MAN travels into the far reaches of space to find the source of a coded SOS he receives.
MARK 38 – HEAVY LIFTING SUIT “IGOR”
(previously known as 36 – HEAVY DUTY BRUTE ARMOR v.02)
Designed for heavy duty tasks that his standard armors cannot handle, TONY STARK creates the HEAVY DUTY BRUTE ARMOR with sheer strength in mind. Equipped with state of the art hydraulic systems powered by a modified ARC REACTOR, this armor enables IRON MAN to take on the strongest enemies.
MARK 22 – LAYERED PLATING ARMOR v.01
Experimenting with various forms of armor formation, TONY STARK designs this armor with the concept of retractable layers. This technology allows this armor to fold into a more compact form, making it more portable than the MARK 5 armor.
MARK 23 – LAYERED PLATING ARMOR v.02
Dissatisfied with the previous LAYERED PLATING ARMOR, TONY STARK further refines the armor design into this version. Featuring a simpler assembly procedure, TONY STARK is able to head into battle at a moment’s notice.
Looks like layered plating to me, not sure if it’s v1 or v2 i almost thought it was stealth.
Mark 11 – STEALTH ARMOR v.01
A derivation of the MARK VI armor, TONY STARK configured it to have built-in stealth capabilities, which allow him to infiltrate the TEN RINGS’ hideouts unnoticed.
MARK 15 – STORED KINETIC INTEGRATED NETWORK (S.K.I.N) ARMOR.
Attempting to create a new form of malleable liquid metal that could be configured into other shapes, TONY STARK creates the S.K.I.N ARMOR. Unfortunately, the alloy compound proved to be unstable, resulting in TONY STARK putting the project on hold.
MARK 18 - SPECIALIZED AQUATIC ARMOR v.01
Designed with the sole purpose of undersea exploration in mind, TONY STARK builds the SPECIALIZED AQUATIC ARMOR. Able to withstand greater pressures than his standard armors, IRON MAN travels deep into the sea to recover rubble from MANDARIN’s attack.
MARK 40 – ASGARDIAN DESTROYER ARMOR
Taking into account that Earth might face future threats from the ASGARDIANS, TONY STARK set about designing an armor specially to take down any invading ASGARDIANS. Using the DESTROYER’s blueprints stolen from S.H.I.E.L.D’s HELICARRIER, STARK creates the ASGARDIAN DESTROYER ARMOR.
MARK 42 – 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.
MARK 17 – ARTILLERY LEVEL RT SUIT “HEARTBREAKER”
(Previously known as Mark 48 – HEART BREAKER v.01)
Created using various parts and components from his damaged IRON ARMY suits, TONY STARK assembles a unique armor with high offensive capability. Armed with a larger ARC REACTOR with higher energy output, IRON MAN is ready to take on his most dangerous foe: THE MANDARIN.
MARK 49 – 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.
MARK 51 – ORIGINAL ARMOR [ REVISITED]
After DR. HANSEN disabled all the EXTREMIS technology, TONY STARK is left unable to tap on his newer EXTREMIS-based suits for battle. Having no other options, STARK dons the REVISITED ARMOR to finish his fight with THE MANDARIN.
MARK 35 – DISASTER RESCUE SUIT “RED SNAPPER”
MARK 33 – ENHANCED ENERGY SUIT “Silver Centurion”
MARK 47 (or Mark 42)
MARK 50 – EXTREMIS ARMOR
Perfecting the EXTREMIS technology at long last, TONY STARK is finally one with the IRON MAN ARMOR.
Possibly an hybrid between Mark 42 and bleeding edge armor.
MARK 40 – HYPER VELOCITY “Shotgun” SUIT
(Previously known as MARK 45 – HYPERVELOCITY AUTONOMOUS PERSONNEL PROTECTOR γ (H.A.P.P.γ) ARMOR)
Mourning his dear friend HAPPY HOGAN’s death, TONY STARK creates this armor in the image of his deceased friend. Equipped with its on A.I. programmed after HAPPY’s neuro patterns, H.A.P.P.γ assists IRON MAN in his battles.
MARK 42-R – RAPID EVACUATION SITUATION CONTROL UNILATERAL ENFORCER (R.E.S.C.U.E) A custom-modified variant of the MARK 42, created by STARK to facilitate PEPPER’s rescue from A.I.M after their experiment
Following this trailer, it seems pepper is going to pilot Tony’s suit and maybe her own:
That’s R.E.S.C.U.E in the comics, judging from the trailer, it is likely that she’s going to be infused with extremis instead of having an arc reactor in her chest, as for the armor. It’s supposed to be a modified version of the MARK 42
