Created by Tony Stark aka Iron Man and Pepper Potts, Arc Reactor became a heart-substitute and the only power source to keep the legacy of Stark Industries going, after Tony Stark was seriously injured when a shrapnel almost killed him after an attack. The device first appeared in Iron Man(2008). He became the only person on this planet whose hearts needs electrical charging, the same like our smartphones begin to cry at the last bar of the battery. So we are going to bring you four facts you probably don’t know about the Arc-Reactor.
1. Howard Stark is the brainchild of Arc-Reactor
Before Tony Stark came up with the miniature model of the Arc-Reactor, Howard Stark created the Arc-Reactor that provided a huge amount of energy powering the whole Stark Industries and then the Stark Tower obviously. This life-supporting electromagnet reactor provided the output of 8 gigajoules per second and saved out Stark.
2. Palladium reaction and Iron Man Armor
So Tony Stark had it all after Howard. And as far as the reactor’s success is concerned Stark discovered that the arc reactor was effective but had adverse effects following the use of it, causing several health anomalies.
3.The new Arc-Reactor
Since Tony Stark had the blueprint of Arc-Reactor it was time to give a new facelift to it and this time he came up with something effective which was first used in the Iron Man Armor MK VI, which first appeared in Iron Man 2 in 2010. This time, the reactor was incorporated with an anti-personnel cannon and triangular plastron.
4. Arc Reactor is made of vibranium
Vibranium is one of the most important elements of the Marvel. The extremely rare and immensely strong meteoric element is related to Captain America, which is extracted from the meteors. As we have seen that Tony Stark suffers from palladium reaction in Iron Man 2, he discovers a new message of his father to create a new element and thus able to rectify this problem.
