How Iron Man's Arc Reactor (Probably) Works

Since the Iron Man arc reactor is a fictitious device, and it has no official scientific explanation in the Iron Man canon that I’m aware of, we might as well something up. Now, I’m mixing real science and fake science here. So physics nerds and comic-book nerds: Deal with it.


It's Too Bad This Stunning Iron Man Mark II Statue Doesn't Move

What Sideshow Collectible’s new Iron Man Mark II quarter-scale statue (based on the second suit Stark built in the 2008 film) lacks in articulation, it makes up for in size and detail. It’s just over 60cm tall, and features a perfect gloss metallic paint job, and light-up features in the helmet, chest and palms.


This New Clip From Avengers: Age Of Ultron Is So Awesome

One of the best parts of The Avengers was when heroes like Captain America, Thor and Iron Man all faced off against each other. Because all of The Avengers are now friends in the Age Of Ultron sequel, they had to find another way to face off: by seeing who could lift Thor’s hammer at a superhero party!


Marvel Phase Three: Get Ready For The Most Ambitious Superhero Movies Yet

When Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy was announced, I had to say I was a little bewildered. Why would Marvel take a property few people read and turn it into a blockbuster tentpole film? Of course, all fears were immediately dispelled when we saw the damn thing, mostly because it’s amazing. Now the comic book giant is taking a gamble on six new movies in what it’s calling Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and they’re some of the most ambitious projects yet.


Iron Man Prosthetic Hand Will Make Kids Feel Like Superheroes

Remember that prosthetic with Wolverine-like claws? It has nothing on this Iron Man 3D-printed glove, designed for kids in need of a prosthetic, packed with electronics and other Stark-approved features.


'Captain America 3' To Kick Off Marvel's Civil War Story Arc, Robert Downey Jr To Return As Iron Man

Captain America: The Winter Soldier was one of the best stand-alone Marvel movies yet. It played beautifully on modern themes of privacy, safety and surveillance, with some of the coolest goddamn action scenes yet. That’s going to be hard to top for Cap, but it’s being reported that Marvel have another slam dunk in the works. Variety is reporting that the third Captain America movies will trigger one of the most epic Marvel comic arcs yet: the Civil War. Whose side are you on?


This Beastly Sword With An Arc Reactor Would Make Iron Man Even Cooler

Though I think Tony Stark would try to invent some sort of laser if he made his own saber and that Iron Man doesn’t quite need a sword with all his weaponry, this beast of a sword made by Man At Arms: Reforged would still look pretty badass when used with Iron Man’s suit.


How Close Are We To A Real Iron Man Suit?

If we are just talking about an armoured suit that augments a human’s strength and weaponry, then we’re extremely close. But if we’re talking about something with all of the primary abilities of Iron Man’s character (i.e. flight, clean infinite power, and repulsor beams), that may never become a reality. The current version in the comic books is even more insane than the one in the movies — the suit’s made almost entirely of nanites, which can repair or replicate themselves and any weaponry on the fly.


I Wore Part Of The US Army's Real-Life Iron Man Suit

The US Army is working on a real-life Iron Man suit, and the first prototypes are coming later this week. But yesterday I got a sneak preview of one of the many clever components. It’s not a rocket launcher or a bulletproof shield, but it does a very, very important job: Keeping Iron Man’s head up.


Endless Animated Features Make This The Best Amateur Iron Man Suit Yet

There are more homemade Iron Man suits on the internet than Tony Stark has dollars in the bank. Some are even quite good, but none come as close to mimicking the real thing like this creation by an Instructables user calling himself Honus.
