Marvel: I can control Metal - Chapter 39
Chapter 39: Mark III in Manufacturing
Looking at the carefully packaged reactor in his hand, Tony cocked his mouth.
Put it on the table.
Leo wanted to go and take a look. Although he knew what it was, he still couldn’t control his curiosity.
Tony turned his head and pointed at Leo, “Don’t break it, that sports car can be given to you, but this can’t be broken for me!”
“Do not worry!”
Looking at this commemorative reactor, Leo remembered the scene at the end of the Avengers 4, a little in a daze.
After a while, he put it back in place, glanced at Tony sitting in front of the computer, and smiled helplessly. He is not him now, but one day, he will become him.
In Afghanistan, thousands of kilometers away, in a dimly lit tent, several bearded fighters pieced together fragments of Mark 1 dug out of the desert.
Holding a few drawings left by Tony in his hand, facing hundreds of fragments, it took several days.
Finally, a rough human figure was pieced together, and there are still many small parts that I don’t know where to put it.
Standing next to him was a brawny bald man with a cigarette in his hand. The burn on the right half of his head was already scabs.
He looked at the helmet of Mark One with dark eyes, not knowing what he was thinking.
Twenty days later.
Tony sits in front of the computer round table that he reassembled. There are a total of eight computers placed on the front, back, left, and right, all of which display different data about the armor.
Looking at the data on the two screens in front of him, Tony continued to analyze the problem.
“It was recorded that the main sensor failed at more than 40,000 feet, and the pressurization system also had problems, probably because of icing.”
“Your insight is sharp, sir.”
Jarvis went on to say, “If you plan to fly out of the atmosphere to other planets, maybe we should also enhance the exhaust system.”
Tony looked back at the armor data on the three displays behind him, remembered the tragedy of falling from the roof, and continued talking.
“Contact Sith Corporation to reconfigure the metal material of the shell and use the gold-titanium alloy of the Seraph satellite.”
“This should not only ensure the power-to-weight ratio, but also increase the strength of the fuselage, understand?”
“Yes, sir, do you want to show you the renderings?”
“Yes, show me!”
The computer in front of Tony started to pop up some structural parts.
Leo walked downstairs, “Mr. Stark, I just seemed to have heard a good thing, gold titanium alloy?”
Leo said to Tony with a smile, and licked his lips, looking at him expectantly.
“Leo, isn’t tungsten alloy out of your taste? The rate of consumption of metal has been getting faster and faster recently.”
Tony turned around and said, “A few days ago, it was only one ton in three days, and now it consumes one ton of metal in almost one day. What have you done?”
“Don’t you know that my ability needs metal assistance, and the higher the quality of the metal, the less I need it. Although tungsten alloy is great, I have to change my taste occasionally!”
Leo smiled flatteringly. Indeed, ten tons of metal have been consumed these days. Although tungsten alloys are not particularly expensive, they add up to three million dollars.
Leo has lived in Tony’s house for so long. Although Tony didn’t say it, he often excluded Leo in words, but he also regarded Leo as a friend in his heart.
Originally only Pepper, Rhodes are two friends of Tony, and was absolutely not stingy with his friends.
“Jarvis, buy two tons of gold and titanium alloy back.”
“Leo, do you know how expensive this thing is? The black market dealers outside have been staring at this metal. In the black market, it costs three thousand dollars a kilogram. You can eat too much.” Tony couldn’t help but complain.
‘Tonight’s Disney Concert Hall is laying a fiery red carpet. In the presence, Tony Stark will present to the Fire Brigade House Fund for the third time, donating the fund, and it has become a gathering place for Los Angeles celebrities.’
There was such background sound from the TV that had been playing on the wall, and Tony was attracted by his own name.
“Jarvis, have we received an invitation letter?”
“No relevant records, sir.”
Relevant news continued to be broadcast on TV, “Since he made his radical remarks at the press conference, he has never appeared in public again. Some people claimed that he was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and had been in bed for several weeks. ‘
“But no matter what the truth is, no one expects him to be there tonight.”
Tony listened, a little disdainful, and he didn’t know what he was thinking.
“The rendering is completed.” A three-dimensional image of Mark III appeared on the computer, and the golden armor all over looked very spicy.
“It’s a bit too dazzling, what do you think?”
“My thoughts, you have always been so low-key.” Jarvis replied.
Tony turned around and poured a glass of water from the kettle, just in time to see his favorite red and yellow classic car.
“Add a little that dazzling red to it.”
“Okay, this keeps your low-key style.”
Leo listened to the conversation between Tony and Jarvis, and he really liked the artificial intelligence Jarvis more and more.
And Tony never seemed to see Jarvis as an intelligent system.
In all conversations, the word ‘we’ is often used, as if Jarvis has been by his side.
But Leo frowned suddenly and realized that Tony poured out chlorophyll juice from the kettle. It seems that he had discovered the palladium metal poisoning caused by his many experiments.
Because of the built-in reactor, metal palladium poisoning will occur. This problem was not solved until the information left by Howard Stark was found, new replacement elements were found, and the fourth-generation reactor was built.
Of course, if the shrapnel in Tony’s chest is taken out, and then the reactor is externally installed, it is also a solution, such as Rhodes’s war machine and Ivan Vanke’s loss of whip.
Leo is well aware of Tony’s character, obsessive-compulsive disorder, self-destructive tendency, and a typical narcissist.
Although it is undeniable that Tony, as a genius, CEO of Stark Industries, etc., has narcissistic capital.
This kind of self-confidence makes Tony think that he can control his life.
However, once a narcissist realizes that failure is inevitable, it is likely to collapse or even self-destruct.
This was clearly demonstrated by Tony in the palladium poisoning incident.
And now the armor is still powered by Tony’s chest reactor, can it be external?
of course can.
Tony said that he would not be producing weapons, weapons for killing.
Is that steel armor a weapon?
As long as Tony himself is in the steel suit, controls the suit, and charges his body, then Iron Man is not a weapon and will not fall into the wrong hands.
The core of the steel suit is the reactor, and the suit without a reactor is basically harmless.
So Tony didn’t dare to put the reactor outside in the steel suit. Once he did that, anyone could put on this suit. Iron Man was no longer Iron Man, but just a weapon. Tony made the most in history. Strong mass killing weapons.
As Tony said later, “This is a high-tech exoskeleton, not a weapon. Only I (personally charge and control the suit) is Iron Man.”
So for Tony, even if Leo had taken out the shell fragments from his chest now, he would not take down the reactor in his chest.
The external reactor will greatly increase the risk of outflow.
“The coloring is complete.”
The red and gold matching picture of Mark III appeared on the screen.
“I like it, make it, and look good!”
“Start automatic assembly, it is expected to be completed in five hours.”
Tony stood up and glanced at his watch. “Don’t wait for me, baby.”
“Leo, do you want to go out and play?”
