The fortieth Iron Man suit created by Tony Stark was a hyper velocity suit nicknamed "Shotgun" that can travel in excess speed of Mach 5.[1]

The Shotgun suit responded to Stark's call for reinforcements against Aldrich Killian's Extremis-enhanced soldiers assisting in his fake terror plot against the United States, and was briefly worn by Stark against Killian himself during the battle. The Shotgun's repulsors proved capable of very rapid and versatile firing, even to the point of using a gauntlet repulsor to backhand Killian across the face with highly-amplified force. Killian's counter-attacks tore away pieces of the suit, forcing Stark to expel himself from the suit before Killian finally sliced it in half.[2]


The MK XL is powered by a miniaturized arc reactor. It has a more aerodynamic design compared to other suits, aiding in high speed flight.
