“We’re building Iron Man”...
During a speech to announce of Manufacturing Institutes led by the Department of Defense, President Barack Obama made a joke about Iron Man.
The institutes are reportedly designed to spur similar innovations compared to the ones created by Tony Stark and Stark Industries in the Marvel Universe. Obama joked, "Basically. I'm here to announce that we're building Iron Man."
He went on, "I'm going to blast off in a second. This has been a secret project we've been working on for a long time. Not really… Maybe. It's classified."
