Bradford’s Mark Pearson, a 44-year-old repairman just spent a little over a year creating an almost perfect replica of the Iron Man suit, just by using sheets of cardboard and fiberglass.But sadly, it doesn’t fly, to the disappointment of Mark.

Although Perason isn’t the only person to build a replica of the famous Iron man suit, his is definitely one of the most realistic looking.  ”I don’t know why I did it”, he claimed, “I guess it was just a moment of madness. I decided on making the helmet then I said to my partner – I’m going to make the full suit.” As he started work on the helmet, he simply couldn’t stop. He downloaded the templates from the Internet, and made them into cardboard moulds. Once those were all created, he was able to create the fiberglass parts of his magnificent replica.

But the strangest thing about Pearson’s Iron Man suit is that it doesn’t fit its own maker. HE had to ask 24-year-old Darren Higgins to fill in Tony Stark shoes. Asked why he chose Iron Man’s suit, the English repairman said “I’m not sure why I picked Iron Man. I’m a big fan and I think I like the fact that he is not really a superhero, he is just a man with a flying suit. But what a suit – it’s the Ferrari of superhero suits.”
