"Nice timing."
"Oh yeah, that's awesome. Give me a suit."
"Oh, I'm sorry, they're only coded to me."
"What's that mean?"
"I gotcha covered!"

The Mark XXXIII Armor (codenamed Silver Centurion), also known as the Enhanced Energy Suit, was Tony Stark's thirty-third Iron Man suit. It was a part of the Iron Legion. It was destroyed by the Clean Slate Protocol activated by Tony Stark.

History

Tony Stark using the Silver Centurion Armor

The Silver Centurion armor was created by Tony Stark after the Battle of New York. Part of the Iron Legion, this was the first suit Stark used in the battle against Aldrich Killian and his Extremis soldiers. When Red Snapper's destruction caused instability to the oil platform, J.A.R.V.I.S. sent the Centurion armor to protect him.

Using it, Stark nearly rescued Pepper Potts before Killian arrived through the floor. Caught off guard, Killian applied extreme heat to the Centurion's chest, severely damaging it. As he lay there, Stark used the Centurion's "hidden blade" to slice off Killian's arm. The damaged Centurion was left on the floor. It is unclear, due to its damaged state, whether or not the Silver Centurion self-destructed.[1]

Capabilities

Silver Centurion's hidden blade

The Silver Centurion saves more energy than any of the other suits. Tony Stark most likely made this because one of his issues with his suits in battle was that they run out of power. It has blades hidden in the arms that can be used in battle, a design carried over from the Mark XXX. This suit was among those that adapted the Mark VII's design of having collapsible parts that allowed the user to step in and out of the suit seamlessly, which would also allow the suit to eject the user on command.

It has a slight protective force field, which allows the suit to attract or repulse objects using its magnetic polarity. The suit is also capable of firing pulse cannons that build in intensity the further they travel.[2]

Behind the Scenes

  • According to the Mark XXXIII's designer Andy Park, The Silver Centurion was the design he was obsesses with as an adolescent. Iron Man #200 got him into comic books. He actually stopped collecting the book when the Silver Centurion armor got destroyed and he went back to the old red-and-gold color scheme. "The hardest part to pull off was the drastically different bullet-shape he had in the comic book."[3]
