The Mark 39 (Mark XXXIX) suit made its debut when Tony ordered J.A.R.V.I.S. to initiate the "House Party Protocol" in Iron Man 3.

There are enough strange people who take the subway, but rarely do normal commuters catch your eye.

This is what happens when you take a long-exposure photo of one of these coils in-action. That is just one of the many simple, yet oddly satisfying, things that have gone viral on the internet.
