The Mark 42 was a suit built by Tony after he nearly died at the battle of New York City and designed so Tony could mentally summon it piece by piece anywhere and at anytime, as he never wanted in danger without a suit nearby.
One night, Tony had a nightmare, it "came to the rescue", hovering over them, it woke Pepper Potts, who screamed and awoke Tony, who dismantled it.
During the attack on the mansion, Pepper Potts donned the armor upon Stark's orders to get herself and Maya Hansen out. Once they were safely out, Tony called the armor back to himself and failed to stop the attack.
Tony later called it to help him escape The Mandarin's mansion. He then remotely controlled it to save the passengers on the Air Force One and stop Savin from abducting President Ellis.
J.A.R.V.I.S. sent the armor to Tony as part of the House Party protocol. He ordered it to suit up on Aldrich Killian and activated the self destruct sequence. It exploded, wounding Killian.
- On the box art for 76007, Pepper Potts is seen in the armor, showing that you can place either Tony or Pepper's head in the armor.
