      Jarvis may be a robot...but the A.I. has definitely gifted him with a precious sense of sarcasm.

          The human body can take the shock of an explosive tank shell and the impact from a 2000 ft. fall, as long as it's encased in a metal suit of armor.

                    Tony Stark has a heart. However, it requires an external source working round the clock to keep it from getting impaled by small metal shards.

                          The preferred weapon is the one you only have to fire once. That's how Dad did it, that's how America does it... and it's worked out pretty well so far!

                                  Even though you're super secretive about the specs and design of the mini-reactor you built for your chest, your disgruntled business partner will just happen to have the perfect tool to extract it conveniently in his briefcase.

                                      Tanks can hit flying human targets in the air, but they'll miss when it's standing right in front of them.

                                        If you're designing a computer software to transfer power to your prototype, don't make the execute command too simple. "Enter" is too easy. "Function 11 ctrl i i enter," now that's the ticket!

                                          When forcing a genius kidnap victim to build a weapon of mass destruction, be sure to leave him alone with no guards to bother him. Instead, use spotty camera coverage to monitor his progress.

                                            It doesn't matter how unethical it may seem or how many different sections of the Geneva Convention it goes against, if you hand an unarmed crime lord to a group of people he's been terrorizing, the entire theater will cheer for you.

                                              Actually, "Terrorists" are not sanctioned or belong to any army/country, so they are not covered by the Geneva Convention, a fact our current administration should well learn.

                                            If your company builds weapons, it shouldn't be that surprising some of your products fall into less-than-savory hands via the black market.

                                              Batman and Iron Man have the exact same power. They're both incredibly rich. The difference is that Tony Stark does it better.

                                                A super-genius engineer, who can build tiny reactors and super suits, doesn't think to design a launch silo in his mansion. He'd rather keep repairing the holes he knocks through the roof.

                                                  Pepper Potts has never surfed for NSFW material at work. If she had, she'd understand that when downloading things you don't want somebody to see, it's far more reliable to just minimize the window than to turn on the screensaver.

                                                      Yeah; apparently pointing and shooting ain't as easy as it looks.

                                                    Audi wants you to know that the Audi car in the final fight sequence was made by Audi! (And also notice that, apart from some scratches on the hood from Iron Man's fingers, the car escaped unscathed.)

                                                      Tony Stark eats Burger King, uses Verizon, and drives an Audi. Just so you know.

                                                        Giant eyeholes in a prototype armor suit are not obvious targets.

                                                          Applying enough force to a man's chest to pull him backward through a concrete wall is not enough to crush his ribcage.

Instead you try to get him to build a missile. I suppose if they had caught Steve Jobs they would have asked him to build a new iPhone..
