** Turns out it wasn't a random little kid. WordOfGod [[http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/tom-holland-officially-confirms-spider-man-was-in-iron-man-2_us_59508ea4e4b0da2c731c7080 reveals]] that it was actually a young Peter Parker. Just goes to show even at the age of 7 or 8 without powers Peter was a hero.

* One random little kid standing up to a rampaging robot with his toy Iron Man repulsor. Whether s/he thought it would work or he was trying to scare it off is irrelevant; that kid has a pair of brass ones. [[spoiler:Tony dropping in, shooting the Hammeroid, and going "Good job!" to the kid before leaving was just the icing on the cake. Whoever that kid is, that has to have been ''the best night of his life''.]]
** Note that this kid probably prevented the deaths of dozens. That [[spoiler: Hammeroid was going on a rampage trying to bring down Tony, and probably would have caused massive collateral damage. However, it is clearly shown that the Hammeroid can't tell if the kid is Tony or not, and freezes up.]]

* Black Widow unleashed in all her glory. [[spoiler: During the Climax Black Widow enters Hammer's head office to get to Vanko. She goes through the assembled security like a hot knife through butter, with a mix of martial arts, smoke bombs, taser mines and street fighting. The fact she finishes the last guard with a casual spray of mace and an annoyed look on her face makes it one {{Badass}} {{Crowning Moment Of Awesome}}.]]

* Whiplash's escape from prison. He nonchalantly kills his fellow prisoner, arms a plastic explosive, kills a guard attempting to accost him, and [[UnflinchingWalk walks away from his cell's explosion]] like it was all a walk in the park for him. {{Badass}}.

* The trailer gave us a BreakingSpeech from Whiplash delivered in Mickey Rourke's trademark rumble (with a Russian accent no less) describing how the Stark family is built on lies and thievery and how they will meet their fate. This is followed by him cutting a UsefulNotes/FormulaOne car in half with a single strike of his whips, then skipping down the track and slamming his whips into the pavement before cutting to a shot of him laughing. Just from the trailer it's clear Whiplash is gonna be a badass.
