Iron Man is constantly tinkering, and each suit evolution gets a new name - Mark 1 was built in the cave in the mountains, Mark 2 was built in his lab and has tech to deal with the icing problem etc. In this scene, he is developing the Mark 42 suit (https://ironman.fandom.com/wiki/Mark_42). The suit can arrive in multiple pieces that can slot on ...
