Of all the heroes and villains in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there's no one more immersed in technology and weaponry than Tony Stark. From his revolutionary arc reactor to the Mark series of Iron Man suits that transform him from eccentric billionaire to high-powered member of the Avengers, Tony never ceases to wow us with his inventions. Beyond the things we're already familiar with, however, fans online have spotted some weapon and tech details you may have missed. For example, in Iron Man 2, when War Machine's suit malfunctions, its HUD display starts translating everything into Russian. In Iron Man 3, Tony unveils an Iron Man suit has a homing ability. When he summons the faceplate, though, you'll notice that the impact splits his lip. Some of these little details even take some specialized knowledge! In Iron Man, the firmware downloader Tony uses for the Mark 1 is actually from a LEGO controller.

Check out his list of weapon and combat details from the Iron Man movies, and don't forget to vote up your favorites!

    In Iron Man, Obadiah tells Tony that the arc reactor is his 'ninth symphony.' In the classical music world, there is a belief that after a composer writes their ninth symphony they would die. He was implying that the arc reactor would be the last thing Tony created before Obadiah kills him.

    Hammer's Ex-Wife Missile Isn't Actually A Dud

    From Redditor u/kn728570:

    In Iron Man 2, the ExWife fizzles out when used on Vanko. The duo chastises Hammer’s inferior tech, but it actually failed because Rhodes was standing still, and too close. The ExWife is a “Kinetic-kill” missile, which requires the added velocity of its supersonic firer, and time to get up to speed.
