Different Versions of the Iron Man Suit
The first suit featured is the Mark 1. This first iteration of “Iron Man” was created in a cave where Stark and Dr. Ho Yinsen were held captive by the Ten Rings, a terrorist group. While crude, this first version of the suit featured a manual rocket launcher, flamethrowers mounted on each arm, and jet boots that helped Stark escape.
Also featured in the video is the Hulkbuster. This suit, known as Mark 48 (since it is allegedly the 48th suit Stark built), is officially called the Hulkbuster 2.0. Powered by 1 or more Arc Reactors, this suit was used by Bruce Banner to fight Thanos at the Battle of Wakanda during Infinity War.
The last suit featured is the Mark 85, the final costume we see Stark wearing in the year 2023 in Endgame. Equipped with enhanced nano-structure, this armor is more durable and efficient in battle than its previous versions.
The advanced armor features Iron Man’s classic gold and red color scheme with a silver eco-structure connecting separate armor pieces. Of note, the helmet features updated technology that enables Iron Man to more efficiently target enemies, as well as new information displays.
Iron Man’s Legacy Lives On
Iron Man has undoubtedly left an indelible mark on the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). His wide variety of technologically advanced suits are one of the many ways Marvel created such a memorable character in Tony Stark.
As only seems fitting, Peter Parker appears to be following Stark’s path in this regard. Spiderman is already on costume number three in his MCU appearances.
