- "...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 construted, 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 pre-war 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 embeded within them, in the black rectangular spaces, which the lasers scanners on the mechanical arms scan to confirm the user's identity and activate the pod's functionalities, automatically forming itself around Tony and become 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 platings, as well as with some silver platings.

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.
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.
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 will automatically wrap itself around him, without any need for external mechanical assistance like previous armors. The armor consisted of air brake flaps, which reduced speeds from 600 mph to 0 mph.
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 upto 5 gigawatts.
The armor has a anti-armor missile launcher similar to the one onboard 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 miniture 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 AvengersEdit
This suit was located in Stark Tower, and was not yet complete during The Avengers. With his Mark VI armor heavily damaged, Tony Stark decided to activate the Mark VII to fight off the Chitauri invasion. This armor's automatic start-up capability saved Tony after he was thrown from the tower by Loki in the Avengers.
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 is still in use as Tony meets Rhodey at a restaurant with the suit. It did not appear in the pier with the Iron Legion. It was destroyed in the attack on Tony's mansion in Malibu, along with the suits in the Hall of Armors.
The Mark VII is a playable and unlockable armor in the game.
