The Mark XXXVIII Armor (codenamed Igor) was Tony Stark's thirty-eighth Iron Man suit and was designed to specialize in heavy lifting. It was a part of the Iron Legion. It was destroyed by the Clean Slate Protocol activated by Tony Stark.
The Igor Armor was made by Tony Stark long after the battle of New York. As part of the Iron Legion, the Igor armor was used by Iron Man and War Machine during their fight against Aldrich Killian and his Extremis soldiers. When the destruction of Red Snapper caused structural instability to the freighter Norco, Stark summoned Igor to stabilize and support the platform. It was destroyed when Stark activated the "Clean Slate" protocol.
The Igor Armor is much more powerful in terms of brute strength than any of the other Iron Man armors, as well as being extremely durable, making it a formidable opponent in battle. However, it was designed specifically for heavy lifting, not combat. The Igor armor contains a variety of mechanisms in its legs and back that can lock into place, allowing it to support large, heavy structures on its back for an extended period of time without failing.
- This armor resembles the Hulkbuster armor from the comics, and as its concept art had the traditional red and yellow color scheme, it was assumed to be it until Iron Man 3 was released and confirmed it was another armor.
