The debut of the new suit
The debut of the new suit

Stark's trademark red and gold armor arose from a battle with a villain named Mr. Doll, who could control the gold armor through a replica figurine. To circumvent the villain's ability, Stark withdrew and constructed a new suit with a significantly different look and a lighter build- thus allowing him to devote less of his own strength to moving the armor and more to fighting Mr. Doll's influence-, resulting in the streamlined red and gold suit.

Iron Boy (aka Teen Stark) wore a slightly modified version of the Mk. III armor during his battle with Iron Man, although it was hastily destroyed by Iron Man.

Alternate Earths

The Mk. III armor appears as the primary suit in the live-action Iron Man movie. In the movie, Tony produces the armor after testing out the Mk. II, and uses it during his confrontation with the Ten Rings terrorist organization. During the final act of the film, Tony wears the suit during his battle with Iron Monger. At the start of Iron Man 2, Tony has already switched to the Mk. IV armor, with the Mk. III now shown on display in the Hall of Armors. The suit is destroyed along with all the other ones on display when Tony's house is blown up in Iron Man 3.
