Heavy mettle

Letter to the Editor

To the editor:

I’m glad that “Iron Man” is finally getting a film adaptation (“Hayter shows mettle for ‘Iron Man’ gig”). When I was a child, he was one of my heroes, and I read his exploits religiously. However, I believe there is an error in the report of the forthcoming project which you printed. I don’t recall Tony Stark (Iron Man) having an accident which forced him to put on his red and gold armor to survive. On the contrary, Tony Stark, like Batman and other superheroes, was forced to keep his identity secret and put on his suit whenever the world was threatened. So I really have no idea where the writer got the impression that Iron Man’s suit was a kind of life support system.
