Re: The Official Iron Man Movie Comic nods Thread
One not a lot of people seem to have caught is the possible nod to the X-Men during the initial Mk.II flight test. As Tony rockets skyward, Jarvis is giving him the details on what craft currently holds the record for highest altitude reached. It's revealed to be the Blackbird. And while the SR-71 Blackbird has held this record in real life, I don't think it does anymore. So this could definitely be seen as a a wink and a nod to X-men fans.
