Alas! we couldn’t reach there but someone with an extraordinary mind has proved that it was not fictional.
The man behind turning fiction into reality
Adam Savage, the former ‘Mythbusters’ has brought the idea of Iron Man in the real-life. He has created the first IM suit which can even fly. Many attempts of creating the Iron Man suit previously have been in vain. But Adam believed in ‘Try, Try and Ever Succeed’ and reached the level of success.
