"The FIDDLER is a suit with a lightweight construction, and a single removable, multi-functional Pneumatic Hammer. A suit designed for rescue missions or for construction efficiency instead of combat."
―(Iron Man 3 - The Official Game) The Mark 29's description the Iron Man 3 game.

The Mark 29 (Mark XXIX), also known by its codename as "Fiddler", is a Nimble-Construction 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.[1]

It was featured in Iron Man 3, and made its debut when Tony ordered J.A.R.V.I.S. to initiate the "House Party Protocol", in which it was activated along with the rest of the Iron Legion to aid Tony in his battle against Aldrich Killian.

The Stark named the suit "Fiddler", because of the armor's design resemblance to a "Fiddler Crab", which also boasts one larger claw than the other, similar to the suit's arm pieces.

Armor Design

The Mark 29 has black and silver plates in it's overall armor design. With some red colored platings on it's left jack-hammer arm.

Armor Capabilities

Pneumatic Force

The Mark 29 has the ability to create an immense amount of power using it's single left-handed Pneumatic Hammer. The hammer can contract and then release a massive blow when used or activated.

Because of the intense power it's left Pneumatic Hammer can create and release, the armor can crush hard objects or debri in it's path. With this ability, it is suitable for usage in construction areas, but can also prove to be a lethal weapon when used against a foe.

Armor Features

Central Unibeam Projector

The "Fiddler" features an enhancement unique to its predecessors, it features an extremely enlarged and increased RT Core Unit being able to fire an enormous and much tactful Unibeam Blast than other armors preceding Mark 29.

Pneumatic Hammer

Although not considered as a weapon, the Mark 29 has one powerful Pneumatic Hammers that can still be lethal when used. It's colored with red platings, and have black-lined stripes on them which serves as a symbol for a Construction Warning.

The Pneumatic Hammer's functionality is similar to the regular mechanism of a jackhammer. When activated, the hammer will retract and can be done repeatedly to destroy debris. The hammer's metal blade can expand to allow room for more crushing of debris.



The Mark 29 is equipped with the standard based Repulsor technology.


The Mark 29 has an oversized circular-shaped Unibeam.

Left Pneumatic Hammer

The armor is equipped with a powerful Pneumatic Hammer on it's left arm that allows it to crush hard objects and debris.


Before Iron Man 3

The Iron Legion and Creation

Sometime after the Battle of New York, Tony Stark, who was haunted by his near death experience from the event, suffered from post traumatic stress disorder and became obsessed with security.

Because of this, Stark began working on the Iron Legion, and through its development, created several Iron Man Armors, which were the Mark's 8-28 all with various designs and purposes. After the Mark 28 / Jack's completion, Stark proceeded to working on his next armor, the Mark 29.

Stark created the Mark 29 as a subset of the Construction Suit, designing it with only one Pneumatic Hammer on it's left arm. The armor specializes in faster speed and agility while working around, or when fighting against enemies. Tony also gave the name "Fiddler" to the suit for it's solo Pneumatic Hammer on its left arm.

It was presumed that the armor was tested a number of times before it was fully functional and ready for combat.

Completion and Storage

Once the armor reached perfection, Stark stored it in the Hall of Armors Extension beneath his Malibu House for future use. After Fiddler's completion, Tony began creating a new line of Iron Man Armors with more advanced features, starting with the Mark 30 / Blue Steel.

Iron Man 3

Malibu Raid

When Tony's Malibu Mansion was raided, and later destroyed, the Mark 29 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"

After Tony and Rhodey uncovered the plans of A.I.M. and saved President Ellis, they both head to the Roxxon Oil Rig to confront Aldrich Killian.

The Mark 29, along with the rest of the Iron Legion were activated by J.A.R.V.I.S. under the order of the "House Party Protocol" issued by Tony. The armor then flew out of the Hall of Armors and went towards the Roxxon Oil Rig together with the other 35 armors.

Arrival at the Roxxon Oil Rig

When the Iron Legion arrived, Fiddler followed after the first few armors' entrance to the scene. Forming a line, and surrounding the area together with the other armors. While waiting for Tony's commands, the armor hovers with the others as the Extremis Soldiers stand surprised with their arrival.

After a few remarks, Tony orders J.A.R.V.I.S. to "Target all Extremis heat signatures. Disable with extreme prejudice." J.A.R.V.I.S. replies with "Yes sir!", which echoes throughout all the suits, including the Mark 29, and the battle ensues.

Extremis Battle & Victory

Fiddler started targeting and attacking the Extremis Soldiers and fought them off together with the help of the other armors during the ongoing battle.

The armor was presumed to have fought and killed several extremis soldiers during the fight, as it was one of the last 21 armors left standing and succeeded in eliminating the remaining extremis forces with the help of the other Iron Legion armors. Fiddler then resumes to flying around the oil rig in the aftermath of the battle.

"Clean Slate Protocol"

The Mark 29 was then detonated by J.A.R.V.I.S. for fireworks along with the other 21 armors, under the Tony's order of the "Clean Slate Protocol". This was to show Tony's devotion to his girlfriend, Pepper Potts.
