    Stark decided to create new types of tech so he invented new Iron-man Amor in Black and Gold colors which is powered by large number of Repulsor Tech cores. One unique thing about this armor is that the color of Repulsor Tech Cores and Repulsor Rays is red instead of yellow or blue.

    After Iron Man was Inverted during the AXIS event, he replaced this suit with the Endo-Sym armor.


    It can be stored in a briefcase in the form of liquid metal and change it's shape in form of Armor around Stark almost instantly while being activated. The armor can be overridden in order to respond to whoever it is needed through the use of special code "Hdgk(X)=H2k(X,Q)∩Hk,k(X)".

    When Stark joined Guardians of the Galaxy, he used the tech given to him by Rocket Raccoon to allow him to remotely control the armor on Earth when his help is extremly needed while being several light years away with Guardians of the Galaxy.

    While the armor still contains usually abilities as other armors like repulsors, Uni-Beam (stronger than ever with this armor), electricity discharge, yet busters to allow flight as well as superhuman levels of strength, speed and durability, amor's primary function is the ability to attach and de-attach different kind of modules and equipment from different purposes depending on the situation which allows Stark to use different types of technology without the need of creating special armors for different task at hand. To access of modular ability and to adapt the armor to different types of technology the suit needs the aid of Stark's newest A.I. called H.E.L.E.N.
