When battling Forceworks after the fog has disabled their technology, Blacklash mentions that their powers still work. However, Blizzard and Blacklash should be defenceless because they both use technology to power their weapons.
Iron Man: Whoa, look at the time. Got places to go, people to see, fog to avoid!
Iron man: Taxi!
Hawkeye: Taxi this!
Hawkeye: (When Century entrances Hypnotia) Man, I gotta get me a set of those powers.
Mandarin:(When he found out Iron Man's identity)Tony Stark? How glorious! How perfect! How obvious.
The Heart of Darkness and the storyline "The Hands of the Mandarin", both appeared in the Iron Man comics.
