Only diehard comic book lovers are the ones who knew about him but now with all the movies and RDJ’s coolest performance; Iron Man has become a household name. There are so many superheroes out there, some with greater power, some who acquired great name even before Iron Man but this guy is something special. The character its portrayal and everything about Iron Man has great significance. Here are some cool things that you should know about him.
Iron Man Movie Was A Huge Gamble
Marvel has filed for bankruptcy in 1996. The studio wasn’t doing well, and their X-Men wasn’t a great thing. They took a radical shift and planned to set up their own studio. All the people involved in the studio has put everything they had in line to finance the movie. If the movie was failed, they would have nothing in their hands and would have gone bankrupt again. But fortunately, the movie made 500 million USD back in 2008. They were able to start their own cinematic universe.
Howard Hughes Was An Inspiration
Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created the character of Iron Man based on the story of Howard Hughes, who was a billionaire playboy in their times.
J.A.R.V.I.S Full | Form Will Leave You In Shock
J.A.R.V.I.S is the artificially intelligent assistant of Tony Stark. It is super smart and helps Tony in emergency times. The full form of this assistant is something that will leave almost everyone in shock. It is a simple name- Just A Rather Very Intelligent System.”
The comic book writers hadn’t given much of a thought about this name either. As Tony Stark is quirky and doesn’t care much about this kind of things, the name sounds apt to an extent.
Tony Graduated At The Age Of 17
Everyone out there knows that Tony Stark is a smart guy. He is so very smart that he entered MIT at the age of 15 and graduated at the age of 17.
Iron Man Suit Had A Nose
When the Iron Man character was first created, it didn’t have a particular nose shape, but in the mid-70s, Stan Lee added a nose to the suit. After some days he thought that the nose wasn’t looking so good with the suit and got it removed immediately. The suit went through various alterations in comics.
Tony Took Training From Captain America
There is no denial in the fact that Tony has all his superpowers lying in the armor and he can’t combat much without it. This is the reason why he took training from Captain America in order to fight even without the armor. This was mentioned in the comics, but they haven’t shown this in the movie, though.
These are some of the coolest things about Iron Man. This is the character that matters the most for Marvel Universe. Be it movie or comic; it made a greater than life impact on people.
