Powers/Abilities/Functions: The Godkiller Mark II battlesuit was immense in size with superhuman strength and durability to match its size. It was equipped with offensive laser repulsors capable of damaging even godlike foes and housed an interface that Iron Man could use the pilot the large battlesuit. It was powered by multiple reactor cores that could be ejected from the battlesuit to act as a sort of "last resort" bomb and it was also equipped with boot jets that allowed flight. Iron Man could also eject himself from the armor if needed.

History: (Avengers VII#4 (fb) - BTS) - Tony Stark spent four billion dollars to create the Godkiller Mark II armor, which he nicknamed "GK II" and stored on Mars in the eventuality he had to battle cosmic-level threats.

(Avengers VII#4 - BTS) - After finding many of the Eternals dead and returning to the Avengers to see a sky riddled with fire, Iron Man ordered his A.I. Motherboard to find the Final Host Celestials and when Motherboard remarked on how profanity did not make her systems go any faster, Iron Man demanded to know the status of his GK II. Motherboard replied that the armor was leaving Martian orbit as they spoke, to which Iron Man told her to have the armor hurry.




(Avengers VII#5) - While attempting to rescue civilians in the fiery sky, Iron Man asked Motherboard for an update on his GK II and Motherboard explained that it was nearing Earth orbit with an estimated time of arrival of eleven minutes. Motherboard later reported back to Iron Man when the ETA reduced to three minutes as cosmic insects appeared. Just as the situation against the Celestials was escalating, Iron Man excused himself from the battle to rendezvous with the arriving GK II armor. Upon seeing the armor's arrival, Doctor Strange asked what the weapon was, to which Iron Man replied it was the Godkiller Mark II armor that he kept on Mars for occasions such as the one the Avengers were in. Iron Man then flew into the air and interfaced with the Godkiller Mark II armor, soon joining the superpowered Thor, She-Hulk and Ghost Rider in confronting the Final Host one-on-one.

(Avengers VII#6) - From within the Godkiller Mark II armor, Iron Man battled the Final Host with his fellow Avengers, eventually managing to down the Celestial Obliteron with Ghost Rider's assistance. When the Godkiller Mark II began using up its power, however, Obliteron got the drop on Iron Man, slicing off the Godkiller's arm with his scythe. Iron Man fought back, however, grabbing Obliteron with the Godkiller's good arm and preparing to fly Obliteron into the sun. The Godkiller was subsequently halted when several thought-deceased Celestials revived as Horde-infected zombies to attack Iron Man. Having no other choice, Iron Man ejected himself from the Godkiller armor then ejected the Godkiller's reactor cores, destroying the Godkiller in a massive explosion that also damaged several Celestials.
