Trivia / Iron Man

The Comics

  • Fan Nickname: Tony's Abusive Boyfriend, for the armour in the arc in which the Iron Man armour became sentient.
  • Name's the Same: The current Whiplash shares his name and ethnicity with the original Crimson Dynamo, Anton Vanko, and his codename with Mark Scarlotti.

90's animated series

  • Divorced Installment: The show was cancelled after only two seasons and the action figure line was axed before the fifth wave could be released. The figures were repainted, given new head sculpts, and then released as part of the toy lines for Spider-Man: The Animated Series and X-Men.
  • Exiled from Continuity: The 616 version of Force Works featured U.S. Agent, who presumably did not appear because of rights issues (as the character is tied to Captain America).
    • Likewise, the producers could not use Cap himself in season two's Armor Wars adaptation.
  • The Other Darrin: Dorian Harewood took over for James Avery as War Machine, Whirlwind, and Whiplash early into Season 1. Also, Harewood, Robert Hays, John Reilly (the voice of Hawkeye), Jim Cummings and Neil Ross (Fin Fang Foom) were the only cast members to return for Season 2. Virtually everyone else was replaced.
    • Century also suffered from this... twice! His original voice actor was among those let go in-between seasons. In "The Beast Within," Jim Cummings takes over voicing the character. But in "The Hands of the Mandarin" two-parter, fellow series regular Tom Kane had the role instead. (This was most likely because H.O.M.E.R. didn't appear in Part 2 and production wanted Kane to have something to do.)
