** A very obscure one: the Black Widow's cover identity "Natalie Rushman" refers to "Nancy Rushman," a cover identity the comic-book version of the Widow used in an arc of ''Marvel Team-Up'' in the 1970s.
** Tony's bodyguard, Happy Hogan, is shown training Tony how to box. In the comics, Happy was a boxer before becoming Tony's bodyguard. Given Happy's fight with a security guard (which he wins) later in the film, this origin probably still applies.
** The broken semi-transparent Captain America shield looks like it comes from the Creator/RebBrown ''[[Film/CaptainAmerica1979 Captain]] [[Film/CaptainAmericaIIDeathTooSoon America]]'' films. [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-K_N0MjuLrOk/T6hSD6C6U-I/AAAAAAAAAz0/3a5D2GSq0Pw/s1600/reb+brown+cap!.jpg Here's a picture.]]
** Tony suggests perhaps he could be Secretary of Defense, a position he held in the comics for a little while in the early 2000s.
** Happy Hogan rescues Tony from Vanko on a racetrack. In TALES OF SUSPENSE #45, Happy rescuing Tony from a crashed race car is how the two characters first met.
** The map of metahuman activity that Nick Fury shows to Tony has markers in Africa and the middle of the Atlantic ocean. The marker in Africa is in reference to the ComicBook/BlackPanther, while fans have speculated that the one in the ocean is meant to hint at either [[ComicBook/SubMariner Namor]] or ComicBook/TheInhumans.
** Tony stores his armor in an attache case, which dates back to the very earliest issues of ''Iron Man''.
** The film's villain is named Ivan Vanko; he is more or less an amalgamation of the characters the Crimson Dynamo and Whiplash. His father's name is Anton Vanko, the name of the original CD in the comics.
** Anton Vanko defected to the West in 1963, the same year both Iron Man and the Crimson Dynamo first appeared.
** The Stark Expo is held in Flushing, NY, the original location of Stark's factory in the comic books.
** Olivia Munn's small role is as Chess Roberts, a reporter from the first issue of the third volume of the comics who only appeared once.
** Stark being forced to attend the Senate Armed Services Committee is lifted straight from the comics; the senator there was named Byrd, not Stern. Likewise, the government trying to get ahold of the Iron Man armor has been a recurring theme in the comics for decades, going away and coming back every so often.
** Stark's line about the suit being a hi-tech prosthesis was mostly true in the comics originally; in the film though, the arc reactor in his chest is perfectly capable of keeping him alive without any need for the suit at all.
** Stark quips at the senate hearing that he would consider being Secretary of Defense if they asked nicely; he held this position in the comics at one point.
** Monaco, where the racetrack scene takes place, was the home of Justin Hammer in the comic books.
** Ivan Vanko's fake ID and name tag at the racetrack is Boris Turgenov, the name of the second Crimson Dynamo.
** Stark has been known to race in the comics as well; when he first met Happy Hogan it was when Happy saved his life after a crash, the same as Happy does now in the movie.
** In the comics, Tony Stark would often carry his suit around in a briefcase. In later years he made the briefcase itself into armor.
** The briefcase armor in the film bears great resemblance to the Silver Centurion armor from the comics in
its own page]].color scheme.
** Stark getting drunk in his Iron Man suit and recklessly endangering lives in it is a reference to Demon in a Bottle.
** Though under different circumstances, Rhodey first donned the Iron Man armor in the comics due to Stark's alcoholism.
** Howard Stark is said by Nick Fury to have co-founded SHIELD; in the comics, Tony Stark co-founded SHIELD and provided them with all of their tech.
** In the same scene featuring Bill O'Reilly's cameo, Pepper Potts can be heard talking on the phone to company lawyers, attempting to do something about the acquisition and use of the Mark II armor by the government but ultimately being unable to. This is a reference to Armor Wars. Further, the person she is talking to on the phone is named Bert, who shares his first name with the lawyer Bert Hindel from Armor Wars.
** Rhodey's armor is called the Variable Threat Response Battlesuit by Justin Hammer in the film; this was the original name for the War Machine armor in the comics as well.
** Vanko remotely compromising War Machine's armor and taking control of it is similar to when Justin Hammer did this to Iron Man in the Demon in the Bottle story arc.

* AltumVidetur: According to Natalia's C.V. she speaks many languages. When Tony asks if she speaks Latin too, she answers... in Latin, and he's impressed. And she's bad-ass in general.
