All Iron Man Suits, From Weakest to Strongest

Iron Man suits
"It means get lost Squidward." -Tony Stark


“I build neat stuff, got a great girl, occasionally save the world. So why can’t I sleep?” -Tony Stark

I’m sure that a lot of us can somewhat understand why the man can’t sleep, but who needs sleep when they contain the wit, humor, and the urge to save innocent people from the darkness that lurks all around this world? It takes time to gain true potential in becoming the ultimate superhero and that’s where the evolution of Iron Man’s armored suits helps him to grow into the superhuman he became. 

#1. Mark I


"If you douse me again, and I'm not on fire, I'm donating you to a city college." -Tony Stark

Introduction And History

Iron Man was first introduced to the Marvel world in March of 1963, when he was featured in the comic book #39 “Tales of Suspense.” Imagine. Just imagine you are held hostage in Vietnam and forced to build a terrorist group a missile so they can do harm to others. What would you do? 

Tony Stark is an engineer with an ever-turning brain of genius ideas and runs the technology company known as Stark Industries. Being brilliant can be an advantage to our enemies and they did not outsmart Mr. Stark when he found iron materials on that lovely kidnapping day. Determination, motivation, and outsmarting his prison guards was exactly what he was going to do to survive and to protect the innocent people of this planet. 

He built his body shield around a chest plate made of iron due to pieces of shrapnel that had been lodged into his body while in Vietnam. This plate keeps him alive and keeps the ammunition shells from entering his heart. 

Suit Powers

  • It can withstand extreme temperatures, as in a fiery fire
  • Physical attacks against him will be manageable
  • Air pressure jets are added to allow him to jump higher than normal
  • The suit contains suction cup features, which allows this superhuman to attach to walls and ceilings
  • It contains a magnet effect to bring objects closer to him or to push objects away
  • Rockets and flamethrowers

Battle With The Mark I Suit

  • He escaped the terrorist group known as “The Ten Rings,” while defeating most of them with this suit on
  • This suit was destroyed after he demolished his vietnam enemies and crashed into the sandy desert

#2. Mark II


"It's an imperfect world, but it's the only one we got. I guarantee you the day weapons are no longer needed to keep the peace, I'll start making bricks and beams for baby hospitals." -Tony Stark

Introduction And History

After Iron Man’s vacation in Vietnam was over, he went on to design another armor suit. He had the mental drive to make it better than his original one that was left in pieces in the sand. Wanting to expand his knowledge, this suit was made purely for experimentation and he focused on the flying ability he was able to create with the Mark I. This armor was made of chromed titanium steel. Stark quickly realized a major problem when he would fly straight up above to reach the clouds and his armored suit would freeze over in solid ice, with him inside

Suit Powers

  • It featured steel flaps to advance speed qualities
  • Durable enough to withstand gunfire and crashes (thank goodness)
  • Stabilizers were installed into the legs and shoulders for flight stability
  • Repulsors and the unibeam were added for power

Battle With The Mark II Suit

  • James Rhodes is considered his best friend and has the title of Lieutenant Colonel of the U.S. Air Force
  • Rhodes ends up stealing this suit and battles Stark while wearing it. He then delivers the suit to the military and they transform it into the War Machine Armor

#3. Mark III


"They say that the best weapon is the one you never have to fire. I respectfully disagree. I prefer the weapon you only have to fire once." -Tony Stark

Introduction And History

The famous dark red and gold colored suit began when he created Mark III. With this suit, while always wanting to perfect his science skills, Tony fixed his issue with the iceberg effect of high grounds. The capabilities and power this armor contained became stronger than ever. It is made of the same titanium from previous suits, but he added gold alloy to the mix to fix the freezing during the flight situation. The dark red and gold colors were inspired by his prized possession that rests in his garage, his hotrod car.

Suit Powers

  • Ice resistant
  • Repulsors on every plate, including armor gauntlets and armor boots
  • Flight assist flaps
  • Micro missiles

  • On the journey back home, while flying of course, he spots two F-22’s and accidentally demolishes one of them. Yikes!
  • Thankfully, his military buddy Rhodes calls the planes off and he can continue home to Pepper, the CEO of his company and later becomes his wife
  • While traveling home with the Mark III suit entact, he begins to lose power and goes on back-up power mode. Uh oh. It’s okay, don’t forget that he perfected the icing over disadvantage from his earlier suit!
  • Obadiah Stane is the former CEO of Stark Industries and is Tony Stark’s business partner (Why do his friends always turn on him?) Stane needed a competitive name, so he came up with the Iron Monger. He created a suit based off of the Mark I armor suit Stark created
  • Iron Man, not Monger, instructed his partner Pepper to blast the roof in order for the suits to lose power, as he is  battling with his former CEO. I hope Monger realizes he is only tough with this suit on! They both fall down into the factory, then boom!! An explosion erupted and the Mark III suit is officially considered damaged due to battle

#4. Mark IV


"Give me a scotch. I'm starving." -Tony Stark

Introduction And History

Why stop at Mark III when you have the best of intentions to use the suit for the good of the people? Tony didn’t stop. He continued to build it better and better, each time after the previous one would be destroyed. The Mark IV suit needed to have cosmetic upgrades where Stark created a new chest plate consisting of the ultimate solution of titanium and gold alloy to prevent freezing over.

This armor suit was being assembled for Iron Man’s upcoming battle with the Chitauri Army. The alien army was led by an intimidating creature known as Thanos. It’s pretty amazing, because this suit actually saved his life when J.A.R.V.I.S. prepared it to catch him when he was free falling through the air.

Iron Man has truly outdone himself with this one, evolving his parade of suits into the most extreme fighting machines!

#32. Mark XXXll


"Please know, when I drift off and be like everything lately, I'm fine. I'm totally fine. I dream about you. Because it's always you." -Tony Stark

Introduction And History

Oh Romeo, oh Romeo, how are you so manly? Yes, this is Romeo! Another added member during Stark’s crazed obsession with building the Iron Legion, Romeo got his name from the Enhanced Chest Repulsor RT. It’s a fitting name since most of us know Shakespear’s character had a huge heart of love to give. Well, this Romeo just looks like he has a big heart of love, but he’s better off using that force for destruction towards enemies. 

Suit Powers

  • Firefights are this suits’ speciality, with the Enhanced RT
  • Since the armor is layered with materials, its speed is progressed due to the light weight of the whole piece

Battle With The Mark XXXll

  • Destroyed during the Clear Slate Protocol (sorry, Romeo!)
