MAULER power armor (Marvel Comics) (Iron Man enemy)


(M.A.U.L.E.R. armor suit)


The M.A.U.L.E.R. suit is a minor suit of power armour  seen in the Marvel Universe. We have these cursory notes about it, and I have no idea why. Beyond stats for such a suit being useful.

I suspect it was a conversion work from the TSR Marvel Super-Heroes RPG as early tests with second/third edition DCH stats.

Powers and Abilities

Brendon Doyle is a collected, professional merc. He managed to steal the MAULER suit from Stark and used it to augment his firepower. He’s a quite sensible and skilled man.

The MAULER suit includes :

  • A laser/electron beam on the right arm (a laser beam guides and makes a path for accelerated electrons).
  • A pulsed electrical charge in the left gauntlet.
  • Powerful jets on the ankles.



Aaron Soames was an old accountant who got fired for being too old. He was refused a pension by his ex-boss, defence industrialist E. Chord.

To avenge himself, he stole one of Chord’s product, the MAULER suit. Soames attempted to get Chord despite Daredevil’s interference. He managed to reach his target, but his revenge was merely symbolic and he did not harm him. Nevertheless, Chord’s guards killed him.

However, the DoD’s contract with Chord was cancelled, and he had to sell his business to Stark. The MAULER armour was put into storage.

The suit was then accidentally found by a petty thug named Turk, who failed in his attempt to use it against Daredevil.

Later, Chord sent professional merc Brendon Doyle recover it. However, Doyle absconded with the suit for himself.

When the Armor Wars occurred, Stark found out that the MAULER suit incorporated some of his tech. Therefore, he went after Doyle. The merc acted sensibly and let Iron Man recover the MAULER suit without a fight.


Doyle is a big, bearded Anglo-Saxon fellow. The MAULER suits looks mostly like the Human Bomb’s, only with blue motifs and exposed cables and gadgetry on the surface.

DC Universe History

As a minor suit of armor with a big gun, the M.A.U.L.E.R. suit could be used anywhere.
