The Mark XXIII Armor (codenamed Shades) was Tony Stark's twenty-third Iron Man suit and was specialized to withstand extreme heat. It was a part of the Iron Legion. It was destroyed by the Clean Slate Protocol activated by Tony Stark.


The Shades Armor was called, along with the rest of the Iron Legion, to help Tony Stark and James Rhodes during their fight against Aldrich Killian and his Extremis Soldiers. During the course of the fight a number of armors were destroyed, though they eventually managed to eliminate all of the Extremis Soldiers. At the end of the battle the remaining suits that were not destroyed by Extremis Soldiers were destroyed when Stark activated the Clean Slate Protocol, including the Mark XXIII. [1]


The Shades armor was built using multiple-layered, heat-resistant armor plating. This specialized exostructure offers superior protection from extreme heat, not only for the user, but the suit's internal systems as well. The Mark XXIII, not built for heavy combat, carried only basic repulsors.
