Ivan Vanko created the Whiplash harness using his father's blueprints for the Arc Reactor and his own proficiency in engineering. He used this armor to try and kill Tony Stark at the Circuit de Monaco; however, he was defeated by Stark in his Mark V armor. After defeating Vanko, Stark removed the Whiplash harness's arc reactor and crushed it, rendering the harness useless.

Vanko later used his earlier schematics along with resources available to him through Hammer Industries to create the new Mark II while working on the Hammer Drones. S.H.I.E.L.D. later claimed what was left of the armor and it was studied by a group of scientistsThis section is under development. Information will be placed here soon.
