"Jarvis! Get Igor to steady this thing!"
Tony ordering J.A.R.V.I.S. to make Igor hold the dock crane in place, to keep it from collapsing.

The Mark 38 (XXXVIII), or otherwise known by it's name as the "Igor", is a Heavy Lifting Suit, 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 it's 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 the Igor, beacuse it has a similar resemblance to a "Hunchback", having a slouched and bulky appearance, just like that of an "Igor". It specializes in lifting heavy objects such as debris, and is capable of tremendous strength and power.

Having an Enhanced Multiple-layered Titanium Plating, it's armor is the thickest of all armored Mark suits, making it the biggest suit of all, as well as the strongest in physical strength and durability.

Armor DesignEdit

The Mark 38's design is unique compared to any other armor built by Tony Stark. Its resemblance is similar to the shape and size of an Igor, hence where the suit get its name.

The Mark 38 has blue and silver plates, with blue as the dominant color. The silver plates cover areas that highlight the armor's appearance, such as the face plate, the arm's and legs and the middle area of the armor's abdomen plating.

Armor CapabilitiesEdit

Extreme StrengthEdit

Having built to carry and lift heavy objects, the Mark 38 has an incredible amount of strength and power. Capable of lifting almost anything ten times its size (such as the oil rig), the armor has fives times the regular strength of a simple Iron Man armor. With this ability, the Mark 38 is the strongest of all armors.

A feature that helps the armor carry heavy and massive objects is it's Spine Lifter, in which it supports whatever object it carries and applies the same amount of pressure to counteract the pressure pressing down on the Mark 38.

Armor FeaturesEdit

Spine LifterEdit

Mark 38 Spine Lifter 3D Model

3D Concept of the Mark 38's Spine Lifter.

The Mark 38 has a powerful, pressurized support lifter located in the armor's spine area. Most commonly referred to as the Spine Lifter, this feature allows the Mark 38 to carry heavy and massive objects, such that it could be ten times the armor's size, and could support the weight easily without breaking.

This feature is unique only with this suit, and is the armor's main function, as well as its most notable feature.

Pressure SupportersEdit

With its ability to carry weight, the Mark 38 has specialized arms that enable it to lift heavy objects and grant it's ability to do so. The Mark 38 has two pressure systems, with one on each arm. The Pressure Supporting feature is bulky and makes up one of the most notable features of the Mark 38.



The Mark 38 has standard heavy duty repulsors, used to help lift up the suit from it's very heavy weight. It is not used for combat, and is only used when the suit flies.


The Mark 38 has a horizontal rectangular Unibeam, that can project a good amount of power strong enough to destroy and clear debris in its path.


Before Iron Man 3Edit

This section is under development. Information will be placed here soon.

Iron Man 3Edit

The Mark 38 was activated by J.A.R.V.I.S. 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.

Later it was used to lift a oil rig after Tony called JARVIS to do so.
