  • Flight: The Mark IX armor can reach speeds above Mach 3.
  • Self-Contained Life-Support System & Environmental Protection: The suit can be completely sealed for operations in vacuum or underwater, providing its own life support, and is shielded against radiation.
  • Repulsors: Concussive force bolts that are fired from the palms of his gauntlets.

  • Rocket Launchers: The armor contains four anti-tank rockets that can be fired at a moments notice.
  • Point Defense Laser: A defensive laser on his left shoulder shoots down and disables incoming projectiles.
  • Tasers: The armor contains non-lethal tasers that are effective in taking down normal thugs with ease.
  • Personal Shield: Iron Man's personal shield is an incredible feat of engineering. Ethan Drake designed it specially for the Iron Man Mark IX Armor. It is capable of withstanding direct impact from missiles and heavy ordnance. This same shield was also applied to the Iron Lad Armor.
  • Particle Beam: A weapon capable of firing streams of particle energy at enemies.
  • Flame Thrower: A wrist mounted flame thrower can be found in the Mark IX armor.

  • Energy Conversion Power Recharge: The suit is also able to convert nearby energy sources, such as heat or kinetic energy into electricity, or even drain electrical energy directly into the batteries for recharge.
