One of the more technologically advanced armors in Tony Stark's arsenal is the Iron Man Model 30, otherwise known as the Extremis armor. While it's been said that the upcoming "Iron Man 3" will be based in part on the "Extremis" storyline, written by Warren Ellis and illustrated by Adi Granov, we still have no major clues as to how the Extremis "virus," or so it's been called, will play into the film.

It's very quick, but Jon wanted to have a kind of a cool easter egg in there.”
