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.
The Mark 38 brings a whole new design into the various types of armors in the Iron Legion.
The Mark 38 has two stabilisers on its legs, to assist lifting extremely heavy items such as the docks as shown in Iron Man 3.
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 vertical rectangular Unibeam, that can project a high amount of power strong enough to destroy and clear debris in it's path.
Before Iron Man 3Edit
This suit is seen smashing through crates and stabilizing the docks, when Tony tells J.A.R.V.I.S. stabilize the docks after the Mark 31 crashes into a pole making the docks unstable.
The Mark 38 is a playable suit in the Iron Man 3 - The Official Game, and can be unlocked by unlocking all armors. It is one of the special offer armors, and is not limited.

- Game Description:
- There have been some speculation by media and fans alike that this suit is a protoype of the "Hulkbuster" suit, due to it's similar resemblance to it. It is unknown whether or not these rumors are true, but it is most unlikely as the designers needed more suit variations for the "House Party Protocol", and the strength variation was one of it. The "Igor" suit was most likely created for variations, and the resemblance to the "Hulkbuster" suit is the director's attempt to keep a strength leaning suit, but not make the Hulk seem antagonistic in any way. (The director would obviously know what the Hulkbuster is, so the resemblance would not be coincidental.)
- The Mark 38 is currently the biggest armor existing that was created by Tony Stark.
- The armor's appearance and shape takes on the look of an Igor, including the helmet.
- The Mark 38 was one of the six un-lockable armors available, as part of the "Iron Man 3 Unlock The Armors" promotional event for the film. It was released together with the Mark 17, Mark 33, Mark 35, Mark 39 and Mark 40.
