The Mandroids were suits of specialized battle armor designed by Tony Stark for use by S.H.I.E.L.D. Ironically, they were first deployed against their own creator and the other Avengers when the heroes were falsely accused of alien sympathies.[1]

There were five Mandroids built directly under Tony Stark's supervision. When Stark International was taken over by Stane International, Mandroid models were put into mass production. After the Armor Wars subsequent Mandroid models had to be streamlined and removed Stark technology.[citation needed]

A Super-Mandroid variant was developed. Under orders from Glenn Talbot, this model became the "Hulkbuster" and was used in battle with Bruce Banner (Earth-616).[citation needed]

A number of Mandroid models have fallen into enemy hands. Justin Hammer used a number of them to protect his Villa.[2] Moses Magnum and Ares' Warhawks made significant use of them.[citation needed]

The Mandroid X is the most recent known model in active service. The CSA and Damage Control maintain variants that have yet to be classified. Several models are maintained by the NYPD.[citation needed] At least one has been modified with Spider-Slayer technology.[citation needed] Oyama Heavy Industries was also commissioned to make a sleeker model that emerges from a special collar.[citation needed]

All known Mandroids have flight capability. In addition to their armor plating and life support, they can generate a powerful forcefield. Hulkbuster variations have additional armor and other upgrades.[citation needed]

A power claw can be used for gripping and attacking.[citation needed]

The other arm's blaster can emit various energies such as a laser torch, neuro-stunner, magnetic "punch-blasters", a tractor beam, or electrostatic charge.[citation needed]

The Mandroid X is able to cloak itself for brief periods.[3]
