The Unibeam is a secondary repulsion blast that comes out of Iron Man's RT. It has to be used wisely, as if it is used too much, it can rapidly drain the suit's power. It has also been shown that it can be used as a search light. First used by the Mark II armor, the Unibeam has to be charged, therefore it has been used rarely.
The suit's entire power can be diverted into the Unibeam to perform the blast which can defeat even the most powerful beings like Thor or Hulk. Like in Iron Man the video game and 2 the other systems nearly go down. It cannot be used while in flight mode, only in hover or ground mode.
It must only be used in complicated times. It uses 20-30 percent of battery power. In the Mark VII, it was used many times without using too much battery power. The reason is of the Arc Reactor built in Iron Man 2.
Types and ShapesEdit
The armor's energy can be redirected into the Unibeam shoot a powerful blast that can repel or obliterate any object. The energy burst takes the form of whatever shape Tony chose for the cover of the Arc Reactor be it a perfect circle, inverted pyramid or hexagon.
Tony created the Unibeam while refining his Iron Man armor. To project energy out from his reactor, he designed a powerful weapon and projectile unit, which gave birth to the Unibeam. It was first equipped and tested on the Mark III. Tony uses it to rescue a family while battling Iron Monger though it only knocks Iron Monger out of the fight for a moment. The Unibeam is not used again due to immense power drain it caused on the already power drained suit.
While drunk in the Mark IV, Stark casually destroyed a watermelon with the Unibeam while showing off for his party guests.
During Tony's first encounter with Thor, the Mark VI was enhanced to 475% power allowing Stark to blast the Asgardian with a combination of both repulsors and his Unibeam.
The Unibeam was powered by the new Vibranium Arc Reactor Mark II. During the battle on Air Force One, Tony killed Eric Savin by blasting him with the Mark 42's Unibeam through the chest at point-blank range. The Unibeam was powerful enough to completely overwhelm Savin's Extremis powers, disintegrating his chest and vital organs and still travelling for several feet afterwards.
During the final battle, Tony used the Unibeam on the Mark 45 in conjunction with Thor's lightening to overload Ultron's doomsday machine.
While fighting Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes, the latter forced Tony against a wall and attempted to remove the main arc reactor of the Mark 46 with his metallic arm. Tony unleashed the Unibeam blasting Barnes several feet away and disintegrating the artificial limb.
- The Unibeam is based on the weapon of the same name and function from the comics.
- The Unibeam is only used sparingly across the eight years of Iron Man appearances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe due to its massive power requirements as such Tony only uses it in times of dire emergency. The only times he used without regard was when he was drunk and when his armor was supercharged by Thor.
