The Mark 27 (Mark XXVII), also known by its name as "Disco", is a Chameleon Suit, and was one of several new Iron Man Armors created by Tony Stark as part of the Iron Legion. The armor was created sometime after the Battle of New York.
It was featured in the movie Iron Man 3, and made its debut in the movie when Tony ordered J.A.R.V.I.S. to initiate the "House Party Protocol", in which it was activated along with all the other suits to aid Tony in his battle against Aldrich Killian.
The suit earned its name "Disco", because of its colorful blue and orange color scheme, that makes it resemble the colorful lights on a real disco ball, as well as the blending abilities of a real "Chameleon", and is where the suit's specialty is derived from.
The reason the suit is colored blue with orange plates, is because it has a special stealth system that enables it to blend in with the environment, like a real chameleon does, and boosting the ability to do so with its unique color scheme.
The Mark 27's design is based almost completely on the Mark XII, with only the hands, color scheme and capabilities of the armor being different. The Mark 27 has blue and orange colored plates on it overall design. It has a smooth and simple design on its face-mask and helmet, and reuses the new redesign used on the Mark VII and other succeeding armors after it and before this armor.
The Mark 27 has the ability to camouflage in the surrounding environment. This is a feature similar to cloaking, only it can fully conceal itself with the surrounding environment. This ability is unique only to this suit, hence having the armor's name type as the Chameleon Suit.
Donning System Edit
The Mark 27, along with all the other newly built Mark suits, uses a more advanced technology that was based off on the Mark VII's technology, which is able to wrap itself around Tony's body, without the aid of robotic arms or any external mechanicals.
It can flexibly open itself to allow Tony to enter into the suit and automatically wrap itself around him, anywhere at anytime, much like the Mark 42's technology and the other newly built Mark suits'.
The Mark 27 has a powerful Repulsor Thrusters equipped on it's back.
The Mark 27 retains the standard Repulsor technology.
The Mark 27 has a circular shaped Unibeam, which is powered by the new Vibranium Arc Reactor Mark II.
Numerous miniature air-to-air missiles are housed in the shoulder pods, which are a part of the detachable backpack.
The shoulder pods house miniature missiles and can fire up to 92 missiles at once.
More missiles are located inside the legs, presumably for air-to-ground attack when flying horizontally over a target.
This armor contained numerous infrared flares, another feature common with some of its predecessors.
Before Iron Man 3Edit
The Iron Legion and CreationEdit
Sometime after the Battle of New York, Tony, who was haunted by what happened in New York, got obsessed in making more Iron Man suits. One of them was the Mark 27.
Completion and StorageEdit
With Disco's completion, Stark proceeded to create a new type of suit with anti-radiation capabilities, which resulted in the creation of the Mark 28, also known as "Jack".
When Tony's Malibu Mansion was raided, and later destroyed, the Mark 27 along with the rest of the Iron Legion were still stored safely within the Hall of Armors Extension, as it was left undamaged during the attack. The chamber was still intact, completely sealed, and concealed from view.
This was part of Stark's plan, in which the Iron Legion was to be used later after he uncovered the truth behind the Mandarin and A.I.M.
Activation of the "House Party Protocol"Edit
The Mark 27 was activated by J.A.R.V.I.S. along with all the other armors in the basement of Tony's Malibu Mansion, under the order of the House Party Protocol issued by Tony. It then flew out of the Hall of Armors and went towards the Roxxon Oil Rig together with the other 34 armors.
When the Iron Legion arrived, the Mark 27 followed the first six armors as they formed a line in their entrance to the rig. The Mark 27 was the last armor to arrive when the first seven armors formed the line, together with the Mark 15, Mark 39, Mark 40, Mark 33, Mark 35, and Mark 17. The Mark 27 could be seen on the far right of the line just after it arrived. When Tony orders J.A.R.V.I.S. to "Target Extremis heat signatures. Disable with extreme prejudice.", J.A.R.V.I.S. responds by saying "Yes sir!", which echoes out through all of the suits, including the Mark 27. The armor then starts targeting and attacking the Extremis Soldiers. It fights them off during the ongoing battle with help of the other armors. The Mark 27 could be briefly seen flying in the background when Tony is trying to save Pepper. Sometime before Tony failed to catch Pepper, the armor was destroyed by the Extremis soldiers. It could be briefly seen again in the background laying on a platform when Killian says "Shame... I would've caught her." The armor's back was severely damaged and its left arm had been ripped off.
The Mark 27 is a playable armor in the game. Released together with the Mark 16 in the Version 1.5.0 update, it is categorized under the Armor Parts section and has the Anti-Air Defense Special Power. The armor is only unlockable through collecting its parts in the Dunes location. It was the second weakest armor with the Anti-Air Defense Special Power and was the 9th weakest armor in the game.
- The Mark 27 is the twenty-seventh suit built by Tony Stark, and is the twentieth suit as part of the Iron Legion.
- The Mark 27 appeared only a split-second on-screen when it arrived together with the Iron Legion, after the suits formed a line to surround the rig. It can be seen as the last suit to the right after the line of suits finishes forming. After Tony’s failed attempt to save Pepper, the Mark 27 could be seen again in the background laying on a platform when Killian says "Shame... I would've caught her." The armor's back was severely damaged and its left arm was gone.
- This is the first armor to feature an orange color scheme in its design, as well as one of the three armors to have a design as such, the others being the Mark 28 and Mark 36.
- This is also the first and only armor that features an orange and blue color scheme, making it very unique compared to the other Iron Man armors.
- This is also the first armor to feature blue in its color scheme, as well as one of the four armors to have a design as such, the others being the Mark 30, Mark 38, and Iron Patriot armors.
- This is the 4th stealth suit (the Mark 15, Mark 16, and Mark 18 being the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd) created by Tony.
