During his capture at the hands of the Ten Rings, Tony Stark created a suit out of materials and weapons provided by the group to escape. With help of Scientist Ho Yensen, he created the first version of his Iron Man suit and engaged the group in a furious battle. Using it and its weaponry, Stark managed to escape his captors and destroy much of its weaponry. When he returned to the United States and decided to fight crime as Iron Man, Tony would use the suit as a template to design his future Iron Man suits. However, he would keep Mark I as a backup in case the other suits were disabled, compromised by hacking, or affected by technical problems.
In the Mod
Iron Man's Mark I suit was first added to the Superheroes Unlimited in version 1.5 (The Iron Man Update).
4.0 - 4.3.12
In versions 4.0 - 4.3.12, Iron Man's Mark 1 suit can be crafted in either the Hero Maker or the Stark Workbench. Wearing the suit and the other Iron Man suits will be required if the player wants to use the latter. Whilst wearing Mark 1, the player will be given Strength 5 and Fire Resistance. Iron Man's Mark 1 suit also has a flamethrower (Suit Ability 2 Key), fire rockets (Suit Ability 4 Key with rockets in inventory) and limited flight (hold the Suit Ability 1 Key and Space Bar).
Like all of his other armor and other superheroes, Mark 1 is immune to fall damage. However, the armor is very heavy, meaning that the player will be given slowness whilst wearing it. The flight system is also less stable than other superheroes. In pre-version 4.2 updates, the player is also given a HUD, which restricts the view of the player whilst wearing the helmet.
To craft Iron Man's Mark 1 suit, you will need:
In the Legends Mod, Mark I can now be accessed through the Stark Workbench. It can be obtained by trading tokens (20,000 in pre-2.0/6,000 2.0 onwards). If the player has committed to the Stark legacy, crafting the suit does not cost tokens. Whilst wearing the costume, the player will be granted Health 20, Strength 12, Jump Boost 1 and Fortitude 3. The suit will also grant them Fire Resistance 1, make them Bulletproof, and immunity to Bleeding and Fall Damage.
Iron Man Mark 1 will also be able to fire flamethrowers (Ability 1 Key for single and Equip Key for dual), a rocket launcher (Ability 4 Key) and a jet booster that allows them to fly temporarily (Utility Key). The player will also be able to perform Super Punches (Ability 2 Key), Seismic Toss (Ability 3 Key) and Ground Pound (Ability 5 Key). However, the suit is vulnerable to EMP blasts and will be deactivated if hit with an electric based attack.
If the player has committed to the Stark Legacy, the following items will be needed to unlock Iron Man Mark I:
