I am Iron Man. You think you're the only superhero in the world? Mr. Stark you've become part of a bigger universe. You just don't know it yet. - Nick Fury

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Tony is captured by terrorists. When he refuses to build a weapon for them, they hold his head underwater. In a brief but graphic scene, we see the arc-reactor implanted in Tony's chest. Terrorist's throw a man on the ground and threaten to shoot him, while his wife and kids watch (Iron Man saves his life.) Multiple intense battle scenes.
Sexual Content: Tony has a reputation as a womanizer. Within the first 15 minutes, we see him rolling around on a bed with a woman he just met. Not 10 minutes later, he is on a plane watching as skimpily dressed women dance around a pole.
