Re: The IRON MAN 3 News & Speculation Thread - Part 8
Interesting /co/ thread if true. Some guy is posting details of the armors from a production reference guide.
I don't necessarily believe it, just posting for future reference in case it turns out to be true. Some of the descriptions really do sound likely in the film and match what Feige said about certain things being set up in IM3 we may not notice without seeing Phase 2 entirely Specifically referring to the Asgardian armor
Supposed armor descriptions:
EDIT: If this stuff is true (which I have a feeling it is) then it is SUPER spoilerific for the movie, and I mean it will pretty much spoil most of everything for you. Read at your own risk.
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
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.
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.
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 V armor.
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.
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.
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.
-White/black/gold armor, which has the concept art leaked recently.
Heavy Duty Armor:
-A.K.A the Hulkbuster Armor. Not explicitly termed as the Hulkbuster though, since that's not the intended purpose. It's prototype is the Mk. XXII / v.01, and is smaller and more humanoid.

-Classic/Spandex Armor, v.01 has the horned face, v.02 has the rounded face with a different color palette.
-Slightly modified Mk.VI, with a dark blue color palette. Red eyes and Arc Reactor.
-Looks like the comic SKIN Armor, but slimmer and more segmented. Huge shoulder armor.
SPECIALISED AQUATIC ARMOR v.01
Designed with the sole purpose of undersea exploration in mind, TONY STARK builds the SPECIALISED 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.
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.
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 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.
Specialized Aquatic Armor:
-Hydro Armor. Resembles the comic Hydro Armor, but sans the glass fishbowl helmet.
Asgardian Destroyer Armor:
-A mecha version of the Destroyer seen in Thor. Incomplete prototype.
-Looks like a hybrid of the comic Telepresence Armor, and the Mk.VII. Gets thrashed by Coldblood.
Particle Radiation Cannon Attachment:
-A huge cannon that attaches to the Mk.XLII's chest. Based on Bleeding Edge's cannon.
RAPID EVACUATION SITUATION CONTROL UNILATERAL ENFORCER (R.E.S.C.U.E)
A custom-modified variant of the MARK XLII, created by STARK to facilitate PEPPER's rescue from A.I.M after their experiment.
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.
Perfecting the EXTREMIS technology at long last, TONY STARK is finally one with the IRON MAN ARMOR.
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.
-Feminine version of the Mk.XLII. Has firefighting functions.
Heartbreaker Armor v2:
-More cohesive version of the Heart Breaker armor. Color palette based off the initial Ultimate Iron Man armor.
