Explore Arc Reactor, Iron Man and more!

Just look at this made-in-a-cave arc reactor and think about the immense physical pain Tony Stark had to go through, first with the hommade surgery at the hands of his captors -- without anesthesia - and then replacing the car battery with this. His chest mangled, bones cracked and moved around, a metal tube inserted, a foreign object inserted -- all without so much as an aspirin. Tony's PTSD goes back to this point; his fragile "arrogance" is an armor hiding his inner trauma - never forget.
