Anthony Stark (Earth-616) from Infinity Vol 1 2 001

When Tony Stark officially joined of the Guardians of the Galaxy, he created a new and sophisticated Space Armor in order to move better throughout the infinity of space without any complications.[3]


This armor is powered by numerous Repulsor Tech cores, being the "Repulsor Core One" the one implanted in Tony Stark's chest.[2] It is equipped with Stark's newest A.I. called P.E.P.P.E.R., which can take over the suit in case of emergency.[4] It is also equipped with the "Stark Omniversal Multitasking Software"[5], which allows its user to control other suits of armor located on Earth (such as the Iron Man Armor Model 42) from distances of hundred of light years.[6]

Similar to the Iron Man Armor Model 42 and the Modular Armor, this armor's composition allows the user of the suit to attach/detach different kind of modules to better suit the current situation.[4]

The armor features regular weaponry such as repulsor rays. Defensive systems include a forceshield[7] and psionic shields.[8]

In order to access the modular ability, this armor can be "accompanied" by a mobile armory and be adapted to use different technologies.[4]

Saturn V Armor extension

The armor has two flight modes. Warp speed, which is used for interplanetary travel, and sub-warp speed, which reaches Mach 10 speed.[2]

The Model 45 also included an armor extension called the "Saturn V Armor" designed for Lunar landing. It granted the Model 45 six times the power storage of a regular Iron Man armor, kept in two repulsor batteries on the back, these batteries feed into redesigned boot jets that allow speeds higher than Mach 10.[2]

On Earth-TRN562, the Intergalactic Iron Man Armor was created in response to Ronan the Accuser's arrival on Earth. The armor had rocket thrusters, allowing for space entry and travel, stronger repulsors, and could disable Chitauri shields. He promised to create a War Machine Armor variant for War Machine.[9]


  • The way in which this armor has been drawn by different artists is very inconsistent. The shape of the torso plates and the location of the yellow-colored parts varies from artist to artist. The most noticeable differences are the lack of spike-shaped yellow paint around the unibeam when drawn by Greg Land,[3] Dale Eaglesham[10] and Lan Medina,[2] and the presence of spiked shoulder pads when drawn by Greg Land,[7] in contrast with Steve McNiven's original design for the armor.[11]
    • These inconsistencies are subtly expained in Iron Man Vol 5 #15. In the beginning of the issue, Stark takes off his damaged Model 45 (which sports spiked shoulderpads and lacks yellow paint around the unibeam, similarly to when it was drawn by Greg Land) and changes it for his Model 42. When he jumps back into action, he uses several remotely-controlled Iron Man suits, and among them, an intact version of the Model 45 identical to Steve McNiven's original design. Thus, the inconsistencies in the way the armor is drawn are explained as there actually being two slightly-different versions of the same armor.
  • The armor's "Saturn V" extension is named after a model of rockets used by the NASA for the Apollo and Skylab programs from 1967 up until 1973.
