- "...and there's one other person you've pissed off. His name was Phil."
- ―(The Avengers) Tony Stark to Loki in The Avengers.
It was featured in The Avengers movie, and made it's debut in the movie when Tony was forced to order J.A.R.V.I.S., to get it ready for combat, despite it still being constructed, to use it in the upcoming battle with the Chitauri Army, as the Mark VI was heavily damaged from its last use by Tony during the events in the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier.
The suit was built for heavy-combat, and is suitable for prewar involved situations, as it was war-ready, and was heavily armed with weapons, which it was specially created for.
The armor has a unique feature that involves forming itself into a large red pod, and when opened, has mechanical arms, that can extend and reach into Tony's arms, grabbing them and slowly wrapping itself around him.
This is done through the use of two special metallic bracelets, both of which have encrypted codes embedded within them in the black rectangular spaces. The laser scanners on the mechanical arms scan these to confirm the user's identity and activate the pod's functionality. The armor then forms itself around Tony and becomes visible as the Mark VII armor.
The Mark VII's design differs from it's predecessors. It has a new design and an improved body armor. The armor has red and gold plating with some silver plating.
The Mark VII has shown itself capable of enduring a flight through and out the center of a Chiatauri Leviathan, protecting its occupant for a short time in deep space, and taking countless blasts from assorted Chiatauri energy weapons.
The Mark VII is a bulkier suit equipped with a detachable backpack, with much more space for repulsor units and weapons. Its chest piece is circular like most other armors, unlike the triangular chest piece of the Mark VI. The Mark VII's chest-piece is circularly inverted.
After making its way to Tony, it extends robotic arms equipped with laser scanners, which sync up with special bracelets worn on Tony's wrists. The armor possessed air brake flaps, which reduced speeds from 600 mph to 0 mph.
Donning System Edit
This suit uses advanced technologies based on the Mark V suitcase armor, which makes it far easier to put on. When not in use, the Mark VII can be folded into a large pod. When activated by J.A.R.V.I.S., it can take flight with its repulsor units and fold-out wings. It can flexibly open itself to allow Tony to enter into the suit and automatically wrap itself around him, anywhere at anytime, without the aid of robotic arms or any external mechanics.
Like previous Iron Man armors, the Mark VII's primary weapons are the repulsor units in its hands. The Mark VII's repulsor units were upgraded to have a plasma charge in them.
The Mark VII has a standard Unibeam, which uses the new and more powerful Vibranium Arc Reactor created by Tony.
The Mark VII had a triple barrel laser mounted on each arm. Unlike the single-use laser weapons of the Mark VI, it was implied that these weapons fed off of the suit's main power supply. The lasers could generate up to 5 gigawatts. Unlike the Mark VI, these lasers could be used multiple times.
The armor has a anti-armor missile launcher similar to the one on-board the Mark III's gauntlets, but much larger. One of these was powerful enough to blow apart a Chitauri Leviathan when fired between its armored plating, after the creature had been attacked by the Hulk.
Numerous miniature air-to-air missiles are housed in the shoulder pods, which are a part of the detachable backpack.
The shoulder pods house miniature missiles and can fire up to 92 missiles at once
These weapons were used to wipe out many Chitauri during the initial parts of the invasion.
More missiles are located inside the legs, presumably for air-to-ground attack when flying horizontally over a target. These missiles were fired after Iron Man flew inside a Chitauri Leviathan, destroying the creature from within.
This armor contained numerous infrared flares, another feature common with its predecessors. These flares were used to draw the attention of the first Chitauri Leviathan.
Before the War for Earth, the Mark 7 was created by Tony Stark to test a new deployment system.
This suit was located in Stark Tower, and was not yet complete around this time. With his Mark VI armor heavily damaged, Tony Stark decided to activate the Mark VII to fight off the Chitauri invasion. After a brief conversation between the two, Loki threw Tony off Stark Tower. After making its way to Tony, it extended robotic arms equipped with laser scanners, which sync up with special bracelets worn on Tony's wrists. After the Mark VII saves Tony, he starts fighting off the Chitauri invaders.
Tony ultimately wins the battle by flying the suit through the wormhole carrying a nuclear missile. The missile destroys the Chitauri flagship and disables the Chitauri on Earth. The suit runs out of power and crashes to Earth, but is caught by the Hulk.
The Mark VII was used when Tony meets Rhodey at a restaurant using the suit to travel there. Later, it was destroyed in the Hall of Armors along with the other armors, from Mark I - Mark VI.
The Mark VII is a playable and unlock-able armor in the game. It's the 4th strongest armor with the Striker Missile Special Power and is the 13th weakest armor in the game.
- Score Multiplier: x4.0
- Special Power: Striker Missile
- Game Description:
- Unlock Cost: 45,000 XP
- Build Cost: 35,000
- The Mark VII's designs would be the origin and base designs for future armors, which were integrated into the various types of armors in the Iron Legion.
- Despite the armor's successful battle against the Chitauri Invasion, The Mark VII is yet under prototype stage when it was first activated in The Avengers. The armor remained in prototype stage throughout it's deployment in the film.
- With this fact, it is possible that the Mark VII hadn't achieved optimal power though it was able to halt the Chitauri Invasion. If it had reached the completion stage, the armor would have been much more substantial and significantly stronger.
- The Mark VII is the first Iron Man Suit to upgrade it's Repulsors with Plasma Energy Charges. The addition of Plasma Energy in this suit will be utilized on future Iron Man Suits, the Iron Legion in particular.
