That's gotta be an Avengers issue. It would be quite a way to 'twist the knife' with Stark and Banner's relationship.

If the hall of armors are destroyed say half way through the movie, and Tony is left with only the armor we see him dragging through the snow at the end of the trailer, I guess there wont be a appearance from the Stealth armor.

IDK. I believe it will appear. I think it will be among the 40 unseen armors.

My theory about this 40 armors thing is that Tony has a secret garage/warehouse filled with armors.

This garage/warehouse was a place where he stockpiled prototypes of his various armor concepts (like the ones we saw in holographic form during IM2) as well as backups of his first 8 armors (explaining how the Mark II is back in the HOA like it was never weaponized and turned into WM) and, after his home/main garage is destroyed and he loses everything, he regroups there with Rhodey to repair the Mark XLVII armor and to equip the prototypes/backups with the remote control/Extremis tech we saw him using on the XLVII in the trailer.

Default Re: Next Armors

wait i'm still a bit confused with the suit-chronology...

IRON MAN

mk1 = Afghan cave suit
mk2 = prototype silver = WAR MACHINE = IRON PATRIOT (?)
mk3 = "Hot-Rod"

IRON MAN 2

mk2 as WAR MACHINE
mk4 = Streamlined hot-rod (coz mk3 was destroyed at the end of IM1)
mk5 = Brief-case suit
mk6 = Triangle-Arc

AVENGERS

features mk6, with the triangle core, and then he suits up with the old mk4? It'd make sense since Thor also goes back to his "old suit" so to speak, from his film during the invasion.

IRON MAN 3

mk2 as WAR MACHINE is remodeled as IRON PATRIOT
mk4 since he's been using it since New York
mk7 = Gold-plated / Extremis-suit

Help me out here! :'(

The suit he uses in Avengers is a new one.

So in Iron Man 3 the suits would presumably be:

Mk. VII (First appeared in Avengers)
Iron Patriot (Supposedly first appeared as MK II in Iron Man)
& Mk VIII (Gold plated/Extremis[first seen in Iron Man 3])

You're right, Mk.7's the one we see at the end of Avengers, I suppose it was made to endure more firepower while featuring that mid-air suit-up mode that I think wasn't in the previous ones? Design wise there's little difference tho. And I think Mk.7's no longer functioning after the Chitauri attack.

Evolution of the Iron Man armor



Mark I
is easily distinguishable, nothing more to add to that (except maybe an extensive comparison with Iron-Monger)





The Mark 2 suit is the silver, and I'm guessing has the same features as mark 3 except for solving that in-story "icing-problem," making it an ideal ground-suit. But I think, as with most of the updates from here-on out, the feature for this was that it was streamlined and was capable of flight as well, though probably lacking all the greater fire-power that the next suits have at this point.



Mark 3
is essentially the last one with a different alloy to withstand better flight. It's got more fire-power, is connected with the "Seraphim satellite" (???) and arguably more durability. But design wise, it retains the basic designs save for the hot-rod red and gold colour-swap with Mark 2:



(I'm looking at the pattern on the arms, the chest, and the mid-section)





In addition, of course, Mark 3 masters the flight and has those brilliant flaps to keep this grounded in reality:






(also, yes I wanted to post more pictures )

Default Re: Next Armors

With Iron Man 2, we have Mark IV, V, and VI:



Story wise, I suppose he had to update to Mark IV because Mark III was totaled by Iron-Monger.



It's more streamlined, the arms are redesigned, the mid-section has those three "dots," and the legs are also more like the F-22 raptors rather than circular mech-legs. I think they intentionally made the design on his mid-section resemble the comic-book superhero "briefs" look but maybe I need to stop staring at the armor's crotch so long. And heck, I guess this is the "playboy suit" since most of what we've seen Tony do in this was a) sky-dive off the plane to attend his party, b) get poisoned, c) get drunk, and also loses big-time to Mark II before being shelved. I like the design tho.

Mark V, like the original, is distinctive for being the "brief-case" suit:



And of course, with the end ofthe film we have a redesign with Mark VI, the triangle-core:



Design wise the only thing they seem to have changed was the chest; everything else is essentially Mark IV.

Then we have The Avengers, and in addition to the triangle-core Mark VI, we have Mark VII:



In addition to a few major changes to the leg, this one's got more thrusters:



And has a mid-section that's different from the previous ones:



What makes this one work is the fact that the gold is more distinctive on his helmet and arms, the silver on his legs gets rid of that "underwear red" I was talking about earlier, and the chest-piece and arms make it somewhat similar to the Mark III suit from the first movie. Added feature: you can put it on while air-borne! Had more durability, and was perhaps the ultimate battle-suit since it took a nuke in another dimension to turn this off. I'd say Tony ascending to the highest point in the cosmic order in this one makes, on some levels, transcendental.

And now we have Mark VIII, the Extremis suit for the upcoming feature:





I can't be the only one who loves the new lighter gold, it just makes it seem so much more like what you'd expect from a real-life suit, I had no qualms with the previous ones but this just stands out as something distinctive on its own. At first I hated it, it looked like someone pooped on Tony's suit, but the final product on the film looks so much better.

Also, Tony really makes love with it. Literally.



(let's just call it the rape-suit, or the kink-armor, or Mk.Narcissist, or maybe I'm thinking of a self-indulgent joke that I can't articulate at the moment.)

Jarvis- Sir the MARK 7 is not ready

Stark- Then skip the spinning rims. We're on the clock.

Interesting theory, wasn't it said that Tony would wear more armors in IM3 than all of the other movies combined?

I enjoyed your run through of all the armors and I agree, the Mark VIII it looks awesome onscreen.

For everyone's clarification, the new suit is the Mk XLVII (47), not the Mk VIII (8).

so where are the other 40 suit's

I wonder if that includes the recreates of the original suits.. . we pretty much saw each of those suits destroyed in the movies they appeared in,so he obviously remade them for display/back up, did he still just call them by their originally designated titles of mark I-VI, or are those now considered VIII-XIV...?
