Iron Man is a superhero that features in comic books published by Marvel Comics, and movies produced by Marvel Studios. He is a founding member of the superhero team the Avengers.
Tony Stark is an American billionaire playboy, an industrialist and master engineer who suffers a severe chest injury during a kidnapping. Stark's injuries are dire and shrapnel is moving towards his heart.
His fellow prisoner, a talented physicist, constructs a magnetic chest plate to keep the shrapnel from reaching Stark's heart, keeping him alive. Together they secretly create a powered suit of armour, which Stark uses to escape. He uses the suit to protect the world as Iron Man while concealing his true identity.
Unfortunately, the shrapnel fragment lodged in his chest cannot be removed without killing him, and he is forced to wear the armour's chest plate to act as a regulator for his heart. He must recharge the chestplate every day or else risk the shrapnel killing him.
This high quality ceramic mug comes with a heat-sensitive print. Watch Iron Man’s chest plate regulator suddenly appear when the mug is filled with hot liquid – WHAM! Smoke and effects are also revealed on the reverse image.
