Iron Man always was one of my favorites, though I couldn't say why. That looked like one of the good ones.

Looked cool but what's with him hand-making the (super high tech) armor on the prison compound blacksmith's anvil?

The fact he makes the armour whilst a prisoner seems related to the plot from the animated feature of Iron Man. He was supposed to make a weapon in exchange for his life but made the armour to help him escape instead.

The armour shown is the Mark 1 Iron Man armour.

As to him hand-making the armour, I guess that requires our suspension of disbelief. Out of all the Avengers, Iron Man did seem to be the one who was more human - no inherent super powers; his power derives from technology as well as being a flawed person (weakness of women and wine).

I think somewhere his creators (Kirby, Lee et al) say they they inspired by Howard Hughes. That is supported in some way in that his father's name is Howard (Stark).

The other stars are Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury (SHIELD) which those of us who read Ultimates can confirm there was no other choice but him, Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper, and Jeff Bridges as Obadiah Stane.
