After being held captive in an Afghan cave, billionaire engineer Tony Stark creates a unique weaponized suit of armor to fight evil.
As Tony is about to test his completed prototype suit, one of the sound effects heard as he boots up J.A.R.V.I.S. and mapping radar, is the "ship zap" effect from the classic arcade game Space Invaders (1978).
I feel like you're driving me to court martial. This is crazy. What did I do? I feel like you're gonna pull over and snuff me. What, you're not allowed to talk? Hey, Forrest!
Jimmy: We can talk, sir.
Tony Stark: Oh, I see. So it's personal.
Ramirez: No, you intimidate them.
Tony Stark: ...
Iron Man's armor regularly saves him when he is slammed into hard surfaces. In reality, his tight-fitting armor would do almost nothing to protect him from this sort of attack. When slamming into concrete, it is not contact with the concrete that causes damage, it is the instant deceleration. Thick padding can help with that, but not skin-tight armor. He would be pulped inside the armor.
Part of the closing credits are seen against computer-graphic renders of armoured suits. One of the renders is an armour with a Gatling gun attached - the War Machine suit, which would appear in Iron Man 2 (2010).
