The Mark I (1), was the first Iron Man suit built and created by Tony Stark, in the initial events of the live-action film, Iron Man, and was later used to be transformed into the infamous Iron Monger by Obadiah Stane.

It was featured in the movie Iron Man, and made its debut  in the movie when Tony and Ho Yinsen were held captive by the terrorist group known as the Ten Rings. As they were held captive, they both devised a plan, through some old blueprints that displayed the image of the Mark I, thus marking the creation of Tony's first Iron Man suit.

The suit was very crude, due to its manual creation and the limited tools that were used to build it, unlike a proper creation like its successor, the Mark II, inside the Stark Mansion.

It has a few notable functionalities and weapons that it was equipped with, namely a Manually Deployed Rocket Launcher, a Flamethrower mounted on right arm, Jet Boots equipped on it's soles, an exposed Internal System attached to it's back, that runs and operates the whole suit's functionalities, and the very first Miniature Arc Reactor that powers the entire suit, and was later modified to a more advanced level called an Arc Reactor, to power almost all of the known Iron Man suits that exist at present.

Armor DesignEdit

The Mark I has a very crude appearance, with silver armor and no colors like Stark's other suits. This crude appearace is due to the fact that Tony had limited resources when constructing the armor from Jericho missile parts, and didn't have the resources or money to build highly advanced suits. It also had a pointed chest plate, curved helmet and more. It is composed of an iron-copper-magnesium alloy, giving it decent resistance against small arms fire.

Armor FeaturesEdit

Boot JetsEdit

The suit features very crude flight abilities based on solid state rocket fuel salvaged from the Jericho missile's propulsion system. The armor has no aerodynamic control over its flight, causing Stark to lose control of his suit shortly after he flew out of the caves.



The Mark I has an attached flamethrower on it's right arm. It is fueled by a small gas tank equipped on top of it's arm. Which is then ignited with a flame through manual control to create a very destructive flame-thrower.

Manually Deployed RocketEdit

The armor is equipped with a powerful Rocket, which is attached inside the arm piece of the armor. Because of the lack of power in the film, the Rocket malfunctioned, which caused Tony to deploy it manually.


Iron Man (film)Edit

In a life changing moment, Tony Stark is attacked and captured by terrorists, named The Ten Rings. While being held captive, Tony was forced to build a Jericho missile for them.

With the help of Ho Yinsen, Tony builds the Mark I suit instead and uses it to escape from the Ten Rings captivity. A few weeks later, he built the Mark II Armor with better weapons systems and propulsion but with no computer systems inside just in case the advanced Iron Man armors were hacked or taken over.

The suit is extremely resistant to damage, easily shrugging off small arms fire, and shown to be capable of withstanding being struck by a missile. The suit is later reduced to pieces after Stark ends up smashing straight into the ground after losing control of his suit's flying capabilities in the movie. After Stark's escape, the Ten Rings gang recover the pieces and assemble it back together.

The Ten Rings gave it to Obadiah Stane. Later, he upgraded the armor to combat Iron Man in the Mark III armor, now under the name of the Iron Monger. The Iron Monger was destroyed, and Obadiah was killed.

Iron Man 2Edit

It appears next to Mark II and Mark III when James Rhodes is putting on the Mark II suit.

Iron Man 3Edit

It appears for the last time next to the Mark II, Mark III, Mark IV, Mark V, Mark VI, and Mark VII in the Hall of Armors. It was destroyed in the attack to the Malibu Mansion.

Other MediaEdit

Marvel's The Avengers: Iron Man - Mark VIIEdit

The armor appears in this Application, mainly featured at the beginning and throughout the game in the Hall of Armors next to the Marks II, III, IV, V, and VI.

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

  • Armor Description:




  • There are no current notes available on this topic, as of the moment.


  • This is the first and only armor to be equipped with a Flamethrower, over the course of the film franchise.
  • This is one of the heaviest armors so far among all of Tony's armors in existence, but also one of the weakest.
  • Because of it's limited capabilities, and it's very weak composition, the Mark I is the only armor that will never be a part of Iron Man 3 - The Official Game.
