In a development that would be a lot more alarming in the Marvel universe, Iron Man's suit is missing, presumed stolen. Police in Los Angeles say the iconic suit, one of two used in the first Iron Man movie, was taken from a prop storage facility some time between February and April 25 this year, CBS Los Angeles reports. The suit, worn by Robert Downey Jr. in the 2008 film, is worth an estimated $325,000, reports ABC13. Police say the owners of the prop storage facility contacted them Tuesday after they checked the space where it was kept Tuesday and discovered it was missing. The case is being investigated as a burglary. (More Iron Man stories.)
