―Tony and Rhodey talking about the "House Party Protocol" suits, while waiting for them to show up.

The Mark 34 (XXXIV), also known as "Southpaw", is a Disaster Rescue Suit Prototype, and was one of the many newly built suits created by Tony Stark, sometime after the events of The Avengers.

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 it's name "Southpaw", because of its left-handed claw, which is derived from the term "Southpaw", meaning left handed, literally, as well as it's similar appearance to a pirate, because of it's left-handed claw that somewhat resembles the hook of a pirate.

It was built as a prototype of the Mark 35, and was the first Disaster Rescue Suit built by Tony, to handle disaster involved situations. It was later succeeded by the Mark 35, which was a complete version of the suit, having a single claw on each of the suit's arms, instead of one.

Armor DesignEdit

The Mark 34's overall design includes black and silver plates in the armor. It has a large claw like arm in the left, while the other one is a normal arm equipped with a standard Repulsor. It has large and unique shoulder pads, and a slightly streamline-like armor body.

Armor FeaturesEdit

Retractable Left ClawEdit

The Mark 34 has a powerful retractable claw on it's left arm, which is used to carry and remove debris.



The Mark 34 is equipped with the standard based Repulsors used by the previous Iron Man armors. The repulsion system is Repulsion Mark I, and it is used for combat, flight stabilization and destroying heavy objects or debri.


The Mark 34 has a standard circular-shaped Unibeam. It is powered by a Vibranium Arc Reactor Mark II. The armor's arc reactor is surrounded by a thick plated armor in the chest area, which is also painted a dark color, resembling a near black appearance.


Before Iron Man 3Edit

The Iron Legion and CreationEdit

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, became paranoid and obsessed with security.

Because of this, Stark began working on the Iron Legion, and through its development, created several Iron Man Armors, from the Mark 8 to the Mark 33 all featuring various designs and purposes. After the Mark 33 / Silver Centurion's completion, Stark proceeded to working on his next armor, the Mark 34.

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

Iron Man 3Edit

The Mark 34 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 35 armors.

Tony then gives J.A.R.V.I.S. the order to "Target all Extremis Heat signatures. Disable with extreme prejudice.", and JARVIS responds with "Yes sir!", which echoes throughout all of the armors, including the Mark 34. The armor starts targeting and attacking Extremis Soldiers after, and fights them off with the help of the other armors during the ongoing battle. It is unknown what happened to the Mark 34, as it may have been destroyed in battle or blown up in the "Clean Slate Protocol" by Tony as a sign of devotion to his girlfriend, Pepper Potts.

Marvel's Iron Man 3 - JARVIS: A Second Screen ExperienceEdit





  • The term "southpaw" comes from the sport of baseball. In the United States, most baseball parks were built so that the batters faced east, keeping the afternoon sun out of their eyes. A left handed pitcher (who would be facing the batter) would be throwing the ball with the hand closest to the south. The term southpaw has also been used in boxing to designate a fighter who fights with their left as their rear hand. Thus the Mark 34, with its specialized left arm, receives the nickname "Southpaw."


  • The Mark 34 is the first and only armor to feature a single claw-like arm on the left side.
  • The Mark 34 is the second armor to feature an irregular left arm. The first being the Mark 29.
