Quote1 This is Iron Man. It's not a suit. Iron Man's an idea. Ever changing. And limited only by our imagination. I say "our" because Iron Man is an idea we all share at Stark Unlimited. It's all of us and everything we do here. We are Team Stark and... We. Are. Iron Man. Quote2

  • In the variant cover to this issue drawn by Adi Granov, every suit in the foreground is of signifiance to his work on Iron Man over the years:[2]
  • In the flashback scene at the beginning of this issue, Tony Stark is wearing one of the outfits worn by Iron Man actor Robert Downey Jr. in Weird Science.
  • The license plate of Tony Stark's flying car reads "Rylos," which is the name of a planet in the film The Last Starfighter.
  • Present at the Foundry is a suit of armor similar to that of the Exo-Man, protagonist of a film of the same name who is commonly mistaken as a 1970s live-action version of Iron Man.
  • A bystander watching Iron Man use the Fin Fang Foombuster Armor mistakes him for Gigantor. Another person points out it's Iron Man, and the bystander says they're the same thing. Gigantor is an American adaptation of the Japanse anime character Tetsujin 28-go. "Tetsujin" is Japanese for "Iron Man."
  • Andy Bhang compares Iron Man's technique of creating a weak spot in Fin Fang Foom's hide to how Smaug, the antagonist dragon of J. R. R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, had a patch bare of scales on his underside.
  • After being left stranded underwater, Iron Man jokes about getting a car ride from the transportation network company Lyft.
  • A launch trailer was released by Marvel on YouTube to promote the series:
