Iron Man Mark VI is the current Iron Man suit used by Tony Stark. It is the most modern and up to date version currently built and is the first to feature a triangular arc reactor, replacing the round reactor that was on the Mark's I to V.
The sixth generation Iron Man armor was constructed in the wake of heavy damage sustained to the fourth and fifth generation Iron Man armors, and makes use of a more advanced arc reactor than its predecessors. It employs the same repulsors and anti-personnel cannon as the MK IV, but it features a triangular aperture in the plastron, armor piercing grenades (instead of the MK III's rockets) and hand-mounted single-use lasers. These lasers were eventually upgraded for more sustained use prior to the MK VI being retired.
The Mark VI suit first saw battle against a small force of robot drones and the remotely controlled War Machine armor, before being worn in battle against Ivan Vanko in a battlesuit of his own. It later sustained moderate damage battling Thor and was then ravaged by multiple collisions with a S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier fan. Despite this, the MK VI Iron Man suit was intact enough to continue limited service with a little repair work, although significantly impaired.
It was retired shortly thereafter, being replaced by its successor, the MK VII.
