Random Thought #212

What happens if Iron Man sneezes?

I happened to be watching some Cartoon Network (The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy) and they advertised an Iron Man figure with removable helmet. It then occurred to me that sneezing with the helmet on might be bad. Not only would it mess up your view screen, but it might also fire a missile. That would be bad if you hit a town or something, probably worse if you hit Thor or the Hulk.

By that measure, having a runny nose wouldn’t be quite as bad, as you probably wouldn’t accidentally kill anyone.

An itch would be just as bad, though in a completely different way. Then again, Tony Stark is a genius, so he probably installed some sort of auto-itching, viewport wiping system.

What if, dare I say it, you really, really had to, y’know, go?

Some things are probably best not thought about.

Cheers,
-Jason

It makes you wonder how the guy apparently flew from his house in Malibu to Afghanistan and back in that suit...

Yeah! Unless he has some sort of 'emergency hatch' on the business end . . .

As was stated Tony Stark is a genious. He is also a hero, and as a hero he is concerned for the well being of the planet. Because he is concerned for the well being of the planet he recycles waste. Therefore it is only logical to assume that his suit is actually powered by his bodily waste. That's right Iron Man uses excrement energy. Now arn't you glad you had that random thought.
