Yeah, I was thinking the same thing as well. But since you phrased it first, I'd say that's the best defense of the Tony's Ultimatized origin I've ever read.jtg3885 said:Was anyone else REALLY surprised to find out Tony is an IUGM? In Ultimates Nick Fury references Tony's amazing mental abilities, and we also hear him referred to as a freak in Nightmare, if my memory serves me correctly. That, and the fact that he designed the new Iron Man armor while hiking up Mt. Everest kinda had me thinking they were going to take that tact anyways. I was leaning towards a Forge-like ability, but this fits with the character as well.
