    "It's also worth noting that the armor has an artificial intelligence system, which Stark has named "Jarvis." Check out our video interview with Favreau above where he talks about the decision to make Jarvis a computer rather than a human butler."

    If it is true I don't mind at all. After having Alfred and godawful Bernard from Spider-Man I don't need to see another butler type.

    That's one change from the comics I think is actually a bit better.

    Bernard was the most incompetent butler ever!

    I don't mind Jarvis being a computer.

    VERY interesting choice. Like others here, I won't miss him terribly. I've had enough of the Superhero butler for now. Nothing on Jarvis personally, but it's just been done enough already.

    Thanks...

    well they've pretty much merged two characters together here then. It's nice to see some co-operation and some insight from the cartoons coming in.

    Bernard was integral to the whole plot of Spider-Man 3. He cleared everything up for Harry and made Harry a good guy again.

    Well other AI computer systems Iron Man has had in the comics are Friday and Jocasta (Ultron's ex). I don't know what the heck happened to Friday and Jocasta.

    the writing regime probably deemed them to be too sci fi -fantasy for the tom clancy style they adopted for iron man:im:

    They went the right route with this, prevented things from getting redundant.

    where did you hear this exactly, I have not read about any of this prior. Are we sure there is an AI in the suit ?

    Wonder if TK780 or TMP have figured that out in the suits they are building (lol) Might need to add in some $$ t othose price tags. How much is an AI I wonder ? (LOL) !

    Agreed. I really don't mind the change of making Jarvis a computer.

    It's actually a very cool take, it makes sense that the smartest man on earth would have alot of AI assisants, especially his "butler".

    Despite being a die hard Iron Man fan, i actually dont mind this decision. Its better than having no Jarvis at all, which is what i thought was probably going to happen.

    Good call turning him into an AI construct.

    Let's see...Rich, brilliant, playboy-type superhero with gadgets and a proper English butler.

    The general audience would totally think that Jarvis was an Alfred ripoff.

    Especially since Batman only has Alfred as his sole confidant. Stark has Rhodes(who's his main confidant/best friend) as well as Happy and Jarvis. I think this is a good choice. I wonder though, why did he name his computer Jarvis? Maybe after the real Jarvis who was with his family when he was growing up? It's just a guess.
