When Tony Stark returned to Earth, after deciding to take time to clear his mind, he started creating many new technologies for himself. One of these being this new armor, primarily used by Tony to test new technological developments.[3]


This armor is powered by numerous Repulsor Tech cores, with "Repulsor Core One" being the one implanted in Tony Stark's chest. This armor's first version was composed of a liquid smart-metal which could be easily stored in a briefcase and be rapidly aligned to a subdermal guide to form the suit exoskeleton. However, this metal was not meant for battle, but rapid testing.[3]

The newest model's composition allows the user of the suit to attach/de-attach different kind of modules depending on the situation in a similar (but more limited) way to the Iron Man Armor Model 13. The suit can also be retracted into a "backpack" to allow its user's arms and legs mobility, but easy to immediately reassemble.[4]

Using technology given to him by Rocket Raccoon,[5] Tony created the "Stark Omniversal Multitasking Software"[6] to allow him to remotely control the armor on Earth via his Deep-Space Armor. This software was intended for emergencies when Stark was needed on Earth while he was in space with the Guardians of the Galaxy. The software approximate communication range is seven hundred light years.[7]

At least two other Model 42 armors, colored in the classic red and gold scheme, could be operated remotely.[8]

Remotely Operated Red & Gold Model 42

The armor features regular weaponry such as repulsor rays, employing the latest version, Mark IVa.[9] The suit can also deploy whips for either attack or to carry things.[10]

In order to access the modular ability, this armor can be accompanied by a mobile armory controlled by Stark's newest A.I. and be adapted to use different technologies.[9]

The code "Hdgk(X)=H2k(X,Q)∩Hk,k(X)" is capable of overriding the armor in order to make it respond to whomever recites it.[11]
