The Mark I (1), was the first Iron Man suit built and created by Tony Stark. It was built in the initial events of the live-action film, Iron Man. The suit was later used as a model for Obadiah Stane's Iron Monger.
It was featured in the movie Iron Man, and first appeared when Tony and Ho Yinsen were held captive by the terrorist group known as the Ten Rings. While they were held captive, Tony and Yinsen devised a plan. In the cave, they created blueprints for the Mark I.
The suit has several notable functionalities and weapons. It is equipped with a Manually Deployed Rocket Launcher, a Flamethrower mounted on right arm, Jet Boots equipped in its soles, an exposed Internal System attached to its back, and the very first Miniature Arc Reactor. The reactor powers the entire suit. Later, Tony created an upgraded version that would power almost every other suit to date.
Armor Design Edit
The Mark I has a very crude appearance. This is due to the fact that Tony had limited resources when constructing the armor. It was actually built from Jericho missile parts. Tony didn't have the resources or money to build highly advanced suits. The suit had a pointed chest plate and curved helmet. It is composed of an iron-copper-magnesium alloy, giving it decent resistance against small arms fire.
Armor Features Edit
Boot Jets Edit
The suit features limited flight capabilities 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 a flamethrower attached to its right arm. The suit is fueled by a small gas tank on top of its arm. The gas is then ignited by a flame through manual control. It creates a very destructive flame-thrower.
Manually Deployed Rocket Edit
The armor is equipped with a powerful rocket, which is attached to the arm piece of the armor. Because of the lack of electricity in the film, the rocket malfunctioned, which caused Tony to deploy it manually.
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 instead builds the Mark I suit. With time running out, Yinsen sacrifices himself to allow Tony time to bring the suit online. Once it is, Tony fights his way out, killing many members of the Ten Rings and destroying their weapons stockpile. As the stockpile explodes, Tony flies off in the Mark I but it crashes in the desert and is destroyed. A few weeks later, he builds the Mark II Armor. The suit has better weapons systems and propulsion. It has no computer systems inside.
The Mark I is highly resistant to damage, easily shrugging off small arms fire. It can even withstand a missile strike. The suit is later reduced to pieces after Stark ends up crashing to the ground. The suit has no control over its flight. After Stark's escape, the Ten Rings recover the pieces and reassemble the suit.
The Ten Rings give the Mark I to Obadiah Stane. Later Stane upgrades the armor to combat Tony's Mark III. Obadiah calls the upgraded the Iron Monger. The Iron Monger was defeated, and Obadiah was killed.
The armor appears in the beginning and throughout this game in the Hall of Armors next to the Marks II, III, IV, V, and VI.
