Iron Man has made many suits and many of them serve some specific purpose like the Hulkbuster armor and the suit to fly in space, but has he made any suit which will help him in fighting underwater?

I want to ask about the Marvel comics and about suits specifically designed for underwater combat?


1 Answer 1


In Iron Man Issue 218 we see he has created a suit, the Iron Man Armor Model 6 or Hydro Armor, specifically to go underwater in.

In Avengers Vol 8 Issue 9 we see Iron Man Armor Model 61 which he uses specifically to fight underwater in.

In the Iron Manual we see his Deep Submergence Suit.

In the MCU Tony's armours seem to cope reasonably well underwater. In The Avengers we see him out at sea underwater fixing the pipeline.

In Iron Man 3 we see the Hammerhead armour as part of the House Party Protocol.

It is region locked so I can't download the app but the Iron Man 3 - JARVIS: A Second Screen Experience app apparently describes this armour as:

Deep Sea Diving Suit designed for extreme pressure and traveling at high-speeds underwater. Features upgraded work-lights for high visibility.

    It was specified this was about the comics later but as I'd already added the MCU part I'll leave it to be complete.

    We see his Hydro-armor in the Ironman animated series and also in the recent Avengers Assemble animated series when they are fighting Attuma (the warlord from Atlantis)

    love it that the armour has a second, clear bubble helmet on top of his usual one (which is already water tight)!

    @codeczar they appear to, I’ll have a look when I’m back at a PC if there’s any explicit evidence.

    I just wanna say that "Iron Manual" is the best, dumbest Marvel Comicism I could have read today. 10/10. Jul 22, 2019 at 19:36
