Proton Beam Generator & Monobeam?
Where is it documeneted the the MK I (Original Grey Armor) was equipped with a Proton Beam? I don't recall ever seeing it used in a comic? The same with the Monobeam?
TOS #39 Documents the basic armor and exoskeleton, the chestplate pacemaker, the air-pressure jets, the suction cups, "Reverse Magnetism", the ability to generate electrical interference, the miniature finger buzz-saw, the lubricating system and the mini-blow torch.

It's just another name for it...starting in the Hydro Armor the chestbeam was now the 'tribeam' and in the later red and golds it was now unibeam.
Proton Beam...that's a toughie. The references I can find have it as part of the chestplate as a short range weapon.
The Mono-Beam was NOT featured in the MK I armor created by Stark in Vietnam! It was incorporated into redesign that took place immediately after his return to the States, resulting in the MK II Gold armor (which was also originally grey).

It wasn't used, but the chestbeam is clearly part of the original design. ~~Kokushishin
