The Mark 9 (Mark IX) is a Fully-Loaded Suit, and was the ninth suit created by Tony Stark, to surpass the Mark VIII, sometime after the events of The Avengers.
It was featured in the movie Iron Man 3, and made its debut in the movie when Tony ordered J.A.R.V.I.S. to initiate the “House Party Protocol”, in which it was activated along with all the other suits to aid Tony in his battle against Aldrich Killian.
The suit was another basic Iron Man suit, that was created by Tony. Bearing much resemblance to it’s predecessor, it retains the famous gold and red color scheme, that takes the identity of Iron Man, with the exception of the redesigned colored plates and the rough-edged mask, a feature that is unique with the suit.
It is equipped with a vast variety of weapons as well, and just like it’s predecessors, retains the signature repulsor weapons that was used in the previous Mark suits.
The Mark IX’s designs are almost similar to that of the Mark VII, only that it is more refined and is not as bulky as the Mark VII is. It has the usual Red and Gold color scheme in it’s armor plating, and has a jetpack equipped on the back of the armor.
The Mark IX uses a more advanced technology that was based off on the Mark VII’s technology, which is able to wrap itself around Tony’s body, without the aid of robotic arms or any external mechanicals.
It can flexibly open itself to allow Tony to enter into the suit and automatically wrap itself around him, anywhere at anytime.
