* TomatoSurprise: A minor one occurs when Tony is saving the passengers from UsefulNotes/AirForceOne plummetting towards the water. [[spoiler:After the "barrel of monkeys" save, he checks to make sure they're all safe and takes off over the bridge. A semi truck runs flat into him... and the pieces of the Mark 42 scatter across the bridge. Tony only winces in disgrace as Rhodey opens up the door to the dark room he was in.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalWimp: Advanced Idea Mechanics, the fearsome HYDRA science division responsible for creating MODOK, the Super-Adaptoid, and the Cosmic Cube, is casually namedropped as the front company of a villain who wasn't even affiliated with them in the comics.


Added DiffLines:

* MovieSuperheroesWearBlack: The bright yellow radiation suit outfits Advanced Idea Mechanics sport in the comics are nowhere to be seen.

* MythologyGag:
** The Roxxon Oil company is a long-time institution of the comics universe, most notable for its involvement in the creation of various incarnations of Deathlock.
** At one point when Happy and Pepper are discussing security procedures at Stark Enterprises, he addresses someone offscreen as "Bambi", the first name of Tony's most famous secretary in the comics, Mrs. Arbogast. A few seconds later, we see a brief glimpse of a woman approximately where "Bambi" would have been, and she looks like a young (early 30s at most) version of Mrs. A.
** The circular basement complete with a series of armors is nearly identical to Tony's base from the '90s' ''WesternAnimation/IronMan'' cartoon.
** The Mark XXXVIII "Igor" Armor is based off the comic's second Hulkbuster armor.
** The Mark XXXIII "Silver Centurion" Armor is inspired by the 1980s Silver Centurion Armor.
** The Mark XV "Sneak" Armor is inspired by the modern comic's Stealth Armor.
** The black Mark XVI "Nightclub" Armor is inspired by the 1980s Stealth Armor.
** Pepper briefly dons the Iron Man suit, referencing her stints as the armored superhero "Rescue" in the comics as well as the few times she wore the suit for one reason or another.
** [[spoiler:Killian]] has a tattoo on his chest of Fin Fang Foom, a dragon that belonged to the alien race that created the Mandarin's rings in the comics.
** Tony starts the final battle in the Silver Centurion suit, then goes into a red-and-gold number, and when ''that'' gets wrecked switches to basic War Machine-ish gray. He's basically re-enacting twenty years of the armor's development over the course of five minutes of fighting.
** The little nifty flick-out one-shot repulsor used by Tony to attack Savin is based on the Repulsor Gun used by Tony in ''Ultimate Iron Man: Armour Wars'' (another Warren Ellis work).
** The movie's version of the Extremis Enhancile combines elements of the Extremis Enhancile from the "Extremis" Arc, along with elements from "The Five Nightmares" arc.
** In the comics, the Iron Patriot armor was worn by the villainous ComicBook/NormanOsborn. Now, it's the heroic ComicBook/WarMachine's new paint job. In ''Ultimate'' comics, Iron Man is also using the code name of Iron Patriot and using a specially designed and painted Iron Patriot suit, to help rally Americans back under one banner after their country went to pot following the destruction of Washington D.C. Its use for Killian's purposes may be a nod to its use by a major villain in the comics.
** Multiple for Creator/WarrenEllis' "Extremis" arc;
*** Dr. Maya Hansen and Aldrich Killian are key characters.
*** The POTUS is named Matthew "Ellis".
*** [[TheDragon Savin]] takes a Uni-beam through his chest at contact range.
*** Killian breathes fire. Though that last one is admitted in-universe to be ridiculous, and it's never mentioned again. It was one of the key powers of the [[ContinuityNod original Extremis enhancile]] along with superhuman speed, which was also removed for the movie.
** The more gold-inclined armor of the Mark XLII is potentially a reference to the original [[http://cdn.comixology.com/2012/MAY12/MAY121879.jpg Iron Man suit from the '60s]], which was painted exclusively in gold.
** Happy says that people laughed at him when he told them he was Iron Man's bodyguard. In the comics, the cover story for Iron Man was, for a long while, that he was an employee of Tony Stark, usually his bodyguard. [[spoiler:Also, the comics Hogan dies after being put in a coma protecting Tony, much like this Happy was put into a coma and ''almost'' killed investigating Savin.]]
** Tony couldn't spare one armor from his Iron Legion for Rhodey because none of them were calibrated for Rhodey's brainwaves; in the comics, Rhodey ended up going insane from using Iron Man armor that had specifically been calibrated for Tony.

** He also asks her [[spoiler:if she's working for the Mandarin. He's kidding, but...she doesn't answer. Because she actually is.]]



** The climactic final battle, where Tony uses an army of fully automated Iron Man suits to defeat Killian, seems to foreshadow him [[Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron creating an army of fully automated Ultron drones]].

* PunchParry: Once during Tony's fight with [[spoiler:Killian]]], this happens, the force sending Tony backward while it [[RealityEnsues visibly breaks the other guy's wrist]], least until Extremis quickly healed it.


Added DiffLines:

** Once during the climax, a PunchParry occurs between Tony in a prototype suit and [[spoiler:Killian]], who's augmented with Extremis. The force sends Tony away mostly-unharmed since his opponent's hand wouldn't budge, and the metal wouldn't immediately cave either so ''he'' was moved... however, [[spoiler:Killian]]'s hand is visibly broken from the force of meeting an ''armored fist''. The only reason he could continue the fight is because Extremis manages to heal it fairly quickly, yet his agonized groan showed it still ''hurt''.
