“My people have a tale, about a Prince –– much hated by his King –– who was banished to the underworld and jailed there. The evil King gave him the most difficult labor –– working the iron pits.
Year after year the Prince mined the heavy ore, becoming so strong he could crush pieces of it together with his bare hands. Too late, the King realized his mistake.
When he struck at the Prince with his finest sword – it broke in half.
The Prince himself had become strong as iron.”
–– Iron Man (2008), original script
