Spreading my arms and taking to the skies like an eagle has always been my biggest fantasy. The closest I’ve ever come is piloting a two-seater Cessna, which was fun, but nowhere near as exhilarating as Jarno Cordia’s latest stunt involving a wingsuit and a pair of jet engines strapped to his ankles.
I'm a sucker for happy stories, I make no excuses. So, when I saw Alex—a seven-year-old boy who was born with a partially developed arm and loves superheroes—meeting with Tony Stark himself—played by Robert Downey Jr—my heart started to melt. Then I saw Alex in awe with his new bionic arm, I was like...
Iron Man blows up a lot of cars, but he also has a lot of really cool ones sitting in his garage. At the same time, his collection is a bit unoriginal, don't you think? A Shelby Cobra, a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, some assorted supercars... meh. I'll tell you who does it better: the man who plays him in real life,…
Reason #187 that Robert Downey Jr. is pretty much the real-life Tony Stark: He has a 6-foot tall Iron Man "armor" that can fly and he can control remotely. To be fair, he probably won't be putting it on to stop bad guys anytime soon, because it's actually an awesome, custom-made toy.
On Earth, superheroes can soar through the air and swing through the urban jungle like Tarzan. But when costumed crime-fighters go into deep space, they often need a ship to zoom around in. Here's a round up of insane and awesome superhero space vehicles.
Five months ago, modder H1Vltg3 gave us an Iron Man script for Grand Theft Auto IV, and it was already loads better than the official Iron Man moviegame of 2008. With another five months' worth of polish, it's even better.
Audi has some very obvious product placement in Iron Man, which means that Audi's DTM (German touring car) race crew in Germany gets these Iron Man-style suits for their races.
Tony Stark is a man of wealth and taste. He likes cars that are obscenely fast and ludicrously expensive, like the Audi R8 and the Saleen S7. But when he dons his Iron Man suit, cars get blown up. Specifically, his cars. And other people's cars. Also military equipment, aliens, and his enemies, but especially cars.
Iron Man has finally returned to theaters across the country, inevitably leaving a lot of us lusting for our own set of red and gold armor. But it turns out that billions of dollars, a genius IQ, and the magic of Hollywood aren't required to realize that dream. At least, not for these brilliant amateur creations.
Whether he's blowing stuff up as Iron Man or whipping his race car around Monaco, Tony Stark is nobody's bitch. And of course, he has excellent taste in automobiles.
The latest trailer for Iron Man 3 dropped yesterday, and I had two major takeaways from it: First, the movie looks like it's going to be insanely awesome. Second, Tony Stark has apparently ended his dalliance with Acura and gone back to his first love, Audi.
While talking about her speculated multimillion-dollar net worth, Gabby Douglas professed her desire for a white AcuraNSX roadster, just like the one in The Avengers. What, no R8?
Iron Man gave up his trademark R8 for an Acura NSX droptop in The Avengers, and it looks like Audi feels bitter about it. Why else would they diss the fictional character's ride on Twitter?
Iron Man 2 mostly served as a reminder that Tony Stark is kind of a dick, a sentiment The Avengers will only reinforce when Stark arrives in this poorly disguised Acura NSX replacement. It's another reminder to Acura's fanboys they'll probably never get one. Handsome dick.

Audi's Iron Man sponsorship tie-up continues with Tony Stark adding an Audi R8 V10 Spyder to his garage along with a chauvinistic tagline for the second movie. Because, you know, a multi-billionaire superhero needs a car to get laid.
