    Why didn't he call up one of those 100 suits instead of spending half the movie without a suit or working on a broken/defective one?

    :confused:

    This confused me a bit too. But apparently the rubble from the house had trapped them, and JARVIS let's Tony know as soon as the rubble is clear that they're available.

    Or so at least someone explained that to me... I honestly don't recall hearing it, and it seems like a weak reason. I mean the Iron Man suit is rated to lift quite a bit... so 30 something suits, including the Hulkbuster armor (called Igor in the movie) shouldn't have had a problem getting out of there.

    Sounds like that someone was trying to come up with a weak excuse. ( and failed)

    I'd like to see the rubble it would take to trap that many Iron Men!

    :laugh2:

    That seemed to be the reason the movie gave and I agree it was a weak reason.

    I will add that Jarvis was malfunctioning and he is pretty much critical in running and coordinating many of the tech functions for Stark. It really didn't give a good reason as to why Jarvis was malfunctioning, but it was mentioned a few times that he was. One can assume that until he was up and running correctly that the suit(s) were unavailable.

    It just was one of those plot holes that never seemed to be adequately addressed. Of course it being a comic book movie, I don't lose much sleep over it. I enjoyed the movie, but it wasn't what I would consider great.

    Well when all the Iron Men suits are so pathetic they basically instantly explode when touched by anything, they probably have a hard time with rubble =p

    Gotta be honest I didn't care much for the movie. It was a solid action flick though, I'll give it a solid 6.5.

    The suits were great with the new tech on how he could call them when needed.

    He could project them on to someone who was coded for them. ie. Pepper.


    I think I know the answer for why the suits were so fragile and crappy.

    They went into mass production and cut costs by cheapening the assemble.

    OR

    They franchised them and cut out the good ingredients.

    Either one leads to crappy suits.

    The Arc reactor does power the suit. It does have a limited life span before it needs to be refueled. I'm guessing he didn't have the necessary fuel rods on him when he crashed in Tennessee, so he improvised another way to charge the reactor.

    Also, the mk42 was a prototype so that may have had something to do with it.

    Furthermore, the suits were seemingly changed to work without Tony in them since IM2 (or else War Machine/Iron Patriot wouldn't work with Rhodes).

    But your comment explains why he couldn't just use the Arc Reactor to power the suit when it wasn't 'charged'.

    The worst part of the movie was the crappy suits. I can understand the MK42 prototype (or whatever it was called) being flimsy, but not the army suits that were already completed. It didn't make sense for those suits to be destroyed by one punch from Potts and the other superhuman guy and by crashing into stuff when the IM suits withstood much more in previous movies, including a battle with Thor and getting caught up in the blades of the SHIELD aircraft. I also thought it was dumb for them to destroy the rest of the IM army at that time.

    Overall though, it was a pretty entertaining movie and I still liked it.

    Did anyone catch the ending where Iron Man was talking to the Hulk? After a very long credit scene, Tony is laying on a psychiatric couch telling the story to Banner, who has dosed off and missed the entire story that Tony was telling him. Banner apologizes for falling asleep and says that he is not that kind of a doctor. It was pretty cool seeing Banner with a cameo at the end. Then at the end of the teaser, it says that Iron Man will return (something that we already knew).
