10 Fun Facts About Iron Man
1. Too Many to Count
Since Iron Man has been around for over 50 years, and there are alternate universes with multiple versions of him in the comics, it’s difficult to say exactly how many suits Stark has made. If only Earth-616—the name of the original Marvel universe—is considered, then he’s currently at Mark 53. But that doesn’t take into account all the modifications and changes he’s made to these suits, nor the ones in other universes. Let’s just say he’s made well over 100 suits and leave it at that.

2. Imitation Is the Sincerest Form of Flattery
There have been multiple attempts throughout the years to recreate the Iron Man suit in real life. There’s the Human Universal Load Carrier, which is an exoskeleton that can carry up to 200 lbs and go up to 10 mph. Richard M. Browning has a version that consists of six micro jet engines that can lift him 10 feet off the ground. And then there are the many cosplayers who have built replica suits with working parts, like a helmet that can open and close. So whether you want a suit that makes you strong like Iron Man, fly like Iron Man, or just look like Iron Man, there’s something out there for you. Sadly, nothing yet that can do all three.

3. A True Billionaire
In the Superior Iron Man comic book series, Stark is actually a villain, akin to a pharmaceutical fat cat. He’s known for giving the world a free drug called Extremis that makes people immortal, among other things, but only for a short period of time. He then began charging people one hundred dollars a day to use the drug, which in turn caused people to do whatever it takes for money to buy it. Iron Man Teddy
4. Mrs. Rogers
There’s a universe in the comics where Tony is born a woman named Natasha Stark who goes by the name Iron Woman. However, what’s interesting, or weird, depending on how you look at it, is she ends up falling in love with, and marrying, Steve Rogers AKA Captain America. I’m going to go with weird.
5. The Butler Did It
In the Iron Man films, J.A.R.V.I.S is Tony Stark’s AI system, but in the comics he’s an actual human being whose full name is Edwin Jarvis. He’s the Stark’s family butler who took care of Tony after his parents died. Iron Man Teddy
6. Someone’s Been Hitting the Gym
When the Iron Man suit is fully powered, it can lift up to 100 tons—that’s 200,000 lbs! That doesn’t even take into account the Hulkbuster suit that Stark created for the sole purpose of, well, dealing with the Hulk, which can lift up to 175 tons.
7. Keeping up With the Times
Since Iron Man has been around for decades, the location of his origin story has changed several times to stay relevant. In the comics, Stark originally built the suit in Vietnam, but that was later retconned so that he built it in the Gulf War, before Afghanistan was finally settled upon for the movie. Iron Man Teddy
8. Child’s Play
Stark is as witty as he is smart, and he’s not one to shy away from a childish joke from time to time. Take for instance, his artificial Butler, J.A.R.V.I.S, which stands for “Just A Rather Very Intelligent System.” Well played Stark, well played. princess peach action figure
9. Skipped a Few Grades
Forget about Doogie Howser; Stark is the OG wunderkind! Stark entered MIT at the age of 15 and graduated two years later with a Master’s degree in chemical engineering. Iron Man Teddy
10. It Was a Good Deal
In our world, Area 51 is a government property that many believe is used to hide anything and everything to do with aliens. However, in the Marvel comics Stark actually owns the property after he purchased it from the state. So far, he’s only used it to hide the reality gem, one of the infinity stones. That’s technically an alien artifact, so I guess it still fits.
