Tony Stark is hands down one of the most brilliant characters ever designed in the Marvel Universe. He is smart, charming, and just the right amount of arrogant. But, you gotta give it to him, he knows when to be each one and when not to. But what do you expect from someone who has the resources and intellect to make whatever his mind imagines?

We would all probably be the exact same way. Right? Well, there is no real way to know. What we do know is of all his inventions the arc reactor is the most famed. What we also know are a bunch of things you didn’t know about Iron Man’s arc reactor. Don’t worry we are going to fill you in on the details.

Did you know Pepper Pots has her own arc reactor? That’s right. Not in the Marvel Cinematic Universe but in Marvel Comic Universe. She was blown up by a suicide bomber out of revenge from someone Tony killed. Find out about her super powers as well in the video.

Then there is how the arc reactor is actually being built by a team of specialist over at M.I.T. That’s right, very soon we will have an arc reactor brought from the pages of the comic books to the real world. It should be able to power 200,000 homes plus and be almost as small as the one inside Iron Man’s chest.

To learn about how it can be weaponized, the story on how it is not actually designed to keep him alive, its defense against EMP blast, and so much more, check out the video.
