Anton and Ivan Vanko
Nick Fury and Natalie "Rushman" aka The Black Widow

By way of explanation.....
Suffice to say that the Vankos are not happy...and not just because the older one is on his deathbed.

Tony Stark
By way of explanation.....
Vanko went rogue and wound up getting deported back to Russia. The other three would have been in elementary school at the time, not that this would stop Reed Richards.

Copyright infringement lawsuit from Justin Hammer
Keys to her hotel suite
Results of a paternity test

Conan (O'Brien, not The Barbarian)
Conan (The Barbarian, not O'Brien)
It's Garry Shandling's Show

This is the theme to Garry's show, the theme to Garry's show. Garry called me up and asked if I would write his theme song.

Justin Hammer and Ivan Vanko
Justin Hammer and Natasha Romanoff aka The Black Widow
Justin Hammer and James Rhodes aka War Machine
Justin Hammer and Nick Fury
By way of explanation.....
I have nothing funny to add here, so let's just take a moment to think about Scarlett Johansson in the Black Widow outfit.

9. How does Pepper describe Stark employee Natalie Rushman?
"Black Widow-y."
"For an accountant, she has the most balanced books I've ever seen."
"Potentially a very expensive sexual harassment lawsuit"

Potato bomb.

He has electro whip things attached to his shoulders. You do the math.

Stark's poisoned heart on a platter.

Traditional Russian burial for his father.

15. Right before Vanko breaks one, how much does Hammer say that it costs to build each killbot in his Iron Man-wannabe armada?
$35 million

"Make the whole world run on Hammer Time."
"Screw Stark right in his Palladium cavity."
By way of explanation.....
Just as an fyi, you don't really need to spend millions of dollars on technology to do that, dude. All you have to do is eat lots of bran and get past the security guards.

Howard Stark
Pepper Potts
President Nixon (from the 1960s, not in a Watchmen way)

21. Tony brings Pepper a gift in lieu of an apology. What is the gift?
Her own Iron Man armor, a suit she calls Rescue.
A promise ring. He knows it's about damned time he made the first move.

23. What is the engraved message on the diorama Howard Stark leaves his son?
"Knowledge is power."
"The facade is a facade."
"The key to the future is here."
"Wisdom is earned, not learned."
By way of explanation.....

24. What is the hidden item passed down from father to son?
The cure for Palladium dependency
The estimated mass of Vibranium
The structure of a new element
The measurements of Miss December, 1964 (Like father, like son)
By way of explanation.....
Howard Stark knew the details of the new element, but 1960s technology was not advanced enough to achieve its invention.
25. Which Avengers item somewhat aids in the creation of the new element from question 24?
Captain America's shield
Stark's first Iron Man suit
Thor's hammer
Black Widow's "sexy lycra outfit"
By way of explanation.....
Shockingly, none of Iron Man's tech is used in the creation of the new element, but the shield is used to level one of the pipes.
26. Who physically attacks Iron Man onstage at the Stark Expo?
James Rhodes aka War Machine
Justin Hammer
Natalie Rushman aka Black Widow
Pepper Potts, who clearly never wanted to be CEO of Stark Industries.
By way of explanation.....
When Vanko hacks the system, the War Machine armor attacks Iron Man against the will of Rhodes.
27. Who strong arms (literally) their way into making Hammer reveal that he is working with Vanko and where Vanko is located at the time?
Happy Hogan
Iron Man
James Rhodes aka War Machine
Natalie Rushman aka Black Widow
By way of explanation.....
Rushman twists Hammer's arm behind his back and makes him talk. What I take from this is that Scarlett Johansson likes to play rough.
28. In the time it takes Happy Hogan to beat up one security guy at Hammer Industries, how many does Black Widow wipe out?
All of them (except the one fighting Happy).
By way of explanation.....
Black Widow could wipe out the 1985 Chicago Bears defense. And not just because they're all in their 50s now.
29. What impact does the Ex-Wife have on Whiplash's armor?
It negates his left whip.
It shreds a segment of the leg armor.
It temporarily blinds him, allowing War Machine to get behind him.
None. It's Hammer Tech, after all.
By way of explanation.....
"Hammer Tech?" is my favorite moment in the movie.
30. Who presents Stark and Rhodes their awards for heroism?
Justin Hammer
Nick Fury
Senator Stern (Garry Shandling's character)
Steve Rogers (but not the same actor as in the Captain America movie)
By way of explanation.....
