Iron Man falls on hard times, robs Florida bank
Tony Stark has hit many lows over his lifetime — alcoholism, Civil War, Secret Invasion … Iron Man 2 — but who could’ve guessed he’d resort to a poorly dressed life of crime?
The Orlando Sentinel reports a man wearing an Iron Man mask and tan jumpsuit ran into a Wells Fargo Bank in Flagler County on Thursday afternoon, waved a gun and demanded money. None of the 10 people in the bank at the time was injured, but the man got away with an undisclosed amount of money.
The Flagler County Sheriff’s Department said the man is 5 feet 4 inches tall — presumably the Iron Man armor comes equipped with lifts — the aforementioned tan jumpsuit, boots and a red-and-black backpack. He was seen fleeing in a maroon compact car rather than the Audi R8 e-Tron he drove in Iron Man 3. We can only guess that’s been pawned or repossessed.Perhaps not so coincidentally, someone in an Iron Man mask robbed a bank in early May in San Clemente, California. That time, he was driving a Toyota Tundra pickup. Watch surveillance video of the Florida robbery below.
