You want to know who I am, right? Right?! Well, my name is Webb; Hunter Webb. 
If you have any questions regarding my Guide then you can easily E-Mail me at
Hummer1114@Gmail.com. I will get to you as soon as I can. But, if you would,
put "Iron Man Guide" as your title. If it's close to that, I won't be strict. 
But if you put NO title at all, it will be treated like Spam and most likely 
deleted. On the other hand, Happy Thoughts!

===============================================================================
B. INTRODUCTION
===============================================================================
The game Iron Man is supposed to be a tie-in to the movie. In my opinion, it
wasn't...At all. However, I kind of enjoyed this game. Constant suspense kept
it real yet still fake-like. What is really cool about this game is that you 
actually get to play in Iron Man's former suit. Now in the case of the movie, 
I have one word: WHOA! Marvel makes the best animated movies I have ever seen.
I can't really tell if this is a sandbox game or not. But the levels sure do 
have the space of one. Now to the guide!

(My rank of the Game's Achievements Difficulty: 4.5/10)

===============================================================================
C. ACHIEVEMENT GUIDE
===============================================================================
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Sidekick (75 Points)
Complete all missions on Easy difficulty (or harder)

Beat the campaign on the Easy difficulty. The Achievements in this game ARE 
stackable so if you beat the game on Hard or Formidable, you will get this
Achievement along with the others.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2. Hero (75 Points)
Complete all missions on Normal difficulty (or harder)

Beat the campaign on the Normal difficulty. The Achievements in this game ARE 
stackable so if you beat the game on Formidable, you will get this
Achievement along with the others.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3. Super Hero (75 Points)
Complete all missions on Formidable difficulty

Beat the campaign on the Formidable difficulty. The Achievements in this game
ARE stackable so if you beat the game on this difficulty, you will get this
Achievement and the above two.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4. Disarmed (25 Points)
Destroy stockpiled Stark weapons in the Escape mission

This Achievement will unlock naturally as you complete this objective in the
first mission of the game.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5. City Protector (25 Points)
Destroy drones without civilian damage in the First Flight mission

When the Stark Helicopter starts to attack you in the First Flight mission, pay
attention to the drones it deploys. If you see a car explode, no Achievement.
You MUST make sure that the drones don't blow anything up at all costs.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
6. Decommissioner (25 Points)
Destroy all Prometheus missiles in the Maggia Compound mission

Before proceeding to your Primary Objective, go after these three missiles. You
will know when you're about to fail the Achievement when Jarvis says something
about the missiles launching.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
7. In The Drink (25 Points)
Avoid civilian casualties in the Flying Fortress mission 

All you have to do is destroy the fly thingy before the timer hits 0. Not that
hard but I would do this on Easy because this is one tough mission. If done
right, the flyer thingy will crash in the ocean and you will get an Achievement
out of it!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
8. Tatyana, Interrupted (25 Points)
Protect the nuclear facility in the Arctic Battle mission

Make sure that Tatyana (the BIG gun) doesn't blow up the nuclear facility. When
Tatyana is about to fire, devices will raise out of some domed buildings that
you can shoot at to shut down the forcefield protecting Tatyana. The domed 
buildings can be found very close to Tatyana. If you kill Tatyana and the
nuclear facility is still intact, Achievement success!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
9. Not a Scratch (25 Points)
Avoid harming the destroyer and its crew in the Lost Destroyer mission

Make sure not to destroy a turret or anything that is attached onto the ship.
Only focus on the drone towards the center of the ship and you should be fine.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
10. Power Saver (25 Points)
Avoid disrupting the city's power supply in the On Defense mission

There is a strategy here. Make sure Titanium Man doesn't use all four power 
stations to replenish his health. Also, do NOT destroy any of the four power
supplies or you will also lose the Hero Objective and Achievement. Just make
sure to kill Titanium Man quick and watch your fire.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
11. Shocking! (25 Points)
Protect outlying occupied buildings in the Save Pepper mission  
 
This is one frustrating Achievement. Besides saving Pepper Potts, you ALSO need
to save these buildings. In simple terms, make sure that the dropships do not 
destroy the buildings in the town. A good way to do this is to fly through a 
ring (to partially shield the reactor) and check on the buildings. When Jarvis
says something about it being "stabilized", you need to go through another
ring. However, when the missiles come to destroy the reactor, the rings do not
help at all. Destroy all these, go through another ring, and focus on the 
buildings again. Soon the mission will be over and you will get the
Achievement!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
12. Proton Shut Out (25 Points)
Prevent cannon attacks on civilian targets in the Island Meltdown mission

When you have destroyed all four couplings, Horgan will introduce his big gun.
This gun is invincible to all forms of Iron Man's attacks. However, stupid man
was not thinking and actually made his wrist gun strong enough to harm his own
creation. When Horgan starts charging his wrist gun, get ready to move. When he
shoots, dodge behind the AIM weapon (big gun in middle of level) and it should
take damage. Repeat until the AIM is dead. But, do this fast because the gun
will eventually start to shoot civilians.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
13. Escape Velocity (25 Points)
Sever the tether before the satellite overloads in the Space Tether mission

This one I unlocked without trying. My advice is to beat this mission before
the four-minute timer reaches zero. Shouldn't be too hard.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
14. You're Fired! (25 Points)
Destroy power regulators in the Iron Monger mission

This is a must-do objective and has to be finished in order to beat this
mission. There are four power regulators in all to destroy. Once the fourth is
destroyed, a cut-scene will kick in and you will have the Achievement.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
15. Excelsior! (70 Points)
Complete Hero Objectives for all missions

There is one Hero Objective for every mission in Iron Man. If you want to know
how to get one, look around my Achievement Guide. There are actually
Achievements for doing Hero Objectives.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
16. Ten Rings Obsoleted (25 Points)
Complete the One Man Army vs. Ten Rings challenge without an armor breach

You can either focus all power on your health or on your weapons. If your
health starts to get low, hide! If you die you HAVE to start over. If you have
finished the Challenge without dying, you've done it right.
NOTE: Each challenge will get tougher as you go. The Maggia is the easiest, and
the AIM-X is the toughest.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
17. Maggia Obsoleted (25 Points)
Complete the One Man Army vs. Maggia challenge without an armor breach

See "Ten Rings Obsoleted". 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
18. Mercs Obsoleted (25 Points)
Complete the One Man Army vs. Mercs challenge without an armor breach

See "Ten Rings Obsoleted". 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
19. AIM Obsoleted (25 Points)
Complete the One Man Army vs. AIM challenge without an armor breach

See "Ten Rings Obsoleted".

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
20. AIM-X Obsoleted (25 Points)
Complete the One Man Army vs. AIM-X challenge wihout an armor breach

See "Ten Rings Obsoleted".

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
21. Air Superiority (15 Points)
Destroy all dropships before the Stark Gunship is stolen in the First Flight
mission

Simply be quick. Be very aware of your environment and be sure you know what 
you're doing. I would focus all your power to your weapons so you can kill the
dropships quicker.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
22. Road King (15 Points)
Destroy all convoy vehicles in less than 2 minutes in the Stark Weapons mission

Concentrate all your units power to your Thrusters. Quickness is the key here. 
The convoys should be marked on your hud and your radar as orange targets. Fly
to each one and destroy it quickly. Just ignore all other enemies as they will
slow you down.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
23. Launch Aborted (15 Points)
Destroy all Prometheus missiles within 10 minutes in the Maggia Compound
mission

Just be quick; 10 minutes is a lot of time for what you need to do. Jarvis
should tell you about the missiles so just be sure to destroy them as quick as
you can.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
24. Collateral Damage (15 Points)
Destroy a Prometheus missile by destroying a fuel truck in the Maggia Compound
mission

This can easily be done at the very beginning of the level. As soon as it
loads, hit your after burners and fly slightly towards the right. You should
come across the first missile. Look for a fuel truck very near the missile 
silo. Shoot it quickly! If you wait, it will drive off and it's explosion will
not destroy the missile. Shoot the fuel truck as soon as you find it.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
25. Personnel Vendetta (15 Points)
Defeat 20 soldiers in the Arctic Battle mission

During this mission concentrate on killing 20 soldiers before moving on to any
major objectives. As long as you have killed 20 INFANTRY troops, you're good.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
26. Overkill (15 Points)
Defeat a soldier using the Unibeam

Probably the easiest Achievement in Iron Man. You can do this on the First 
Flight mission. After the tutorial, there will be an invasion. Look for a
ground troop, charge up your Unibeam, and shoot him. Achievement unlocked!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
27. Smack Down (15 Points)
Defeat Titanium Man before his second recharge in the On Defense mission

Concentrate all your suit's power on Repulsors. Constantly attack Titanium Man
and do not stop. When he goes to his first recharge, wait right next to him 
while he recharges some of his health. When he is done, blow the heck out of
him. Just make sure he is does NOT recharge at the second recharge station by 
killing him.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
28. Impenetrable (15 Points)
Complete a mission (other than Escape or First Flight) without an armor breach

Do this on Easy as that is the simplest. I would play the mission "Stark
Weapons". When the time comes that you fight the BIG tank thing (I think it's
called the Dreadnought?), take cover behind a rock and shoot your Unibeam and
rockets at it. If you're health goes low, do not engage it because it could
easily kill you.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
29. An Object in Motion (15 Points)
Destroy any target using a ramming attack

Find a, say, helicopter. Use your afterburners and fly straight into the heli. 
It should die but if it doesn't, try again. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
30. Grounded (15 Points)
Successfully grapple and throw a plane

Let a jet/plane fly towards you. Hold B as it approaches you. If done right, 
Iron Man should grab onto the back of the plane. Aim it towards the ground and
let go. Achievement unlocked!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
31. Your Own Medicine (15 Points)
Damage or destroy another enemy while grappling a SAM launcher

A SAM launcher is a ground launcher that shoots missiles. Go near one, hold B
when you approach it, and Iron Man should grab hold of it. Aim it near another
enemy and push RT. The second the missile kills the enemy, you'll get the 
Achievement. These can be found on the Stark Weapons and Maggia Compound
missions. 
NOTE: After shooting a limited amount of missiles, the SAM launcher will
explode.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
32. Long Shot (15 Points)
Damage or destroy another enemy while grappling a howitzer

Exact same method as the "Your Own Medicine" Achievement except this is with a
Howitzer. A howitzer looks like a tank but instead it shoots shells up into the
air which come back down. These can be found on the Maggia Compound mission.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
33. Hulk Smash! (15 Points)
Successfully grapple an opponent in the Hulkbuster armor

When you unlock the Hulkbuster armor, play in it on the Stark Weapons mission.
When you find an infantry troop, go up to him (carefully) and hold B. That's
all there is to it.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
34. Ground Pound (15 Points)
Defeat and opponent using the ground pound in the Extremis armor

When you unlock the Extremis armor, play in it on the Stark Weapons mission.
When you find an infanty troop, fly up high, then land with a thud. The enemy
will go flying and you will have gotten the requirement for this Achievment!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
35. Classic Confrontation (15 Points)
Defeat Titanium Man using the Classic armor

Once you unlock the Classic Armor, replay the mission where you fight Titanium
Man. Not difficult one bit...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
36. Old School (15 Points)
Defeat Iron Monger using the Silver Centurion armor

Once you unlock the Silver Centurion Armor, replay the mission where you fight
Iron Monger. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
37. Pugilist (15 Points)
Complete any mission (other than Escape) without using weapons systems

Try and get this on the Stark Weapons mission. It could take some time but this
is probably the easiest level to do this on.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
38. Eject! (25 Points)
Spare the US fighter pilots in the Stark Weapons mission

Grapple them. Yeah, this is frustrating as the US pilots are not idiots and do
not fly too close to you. When you see one come close, hold B and fly towards 
it. Do this for all of the fighters.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
39. Guardian (25 Points)
Protect warehouse workers in the Maggia Factories mission

OK, now this one was glitched up for me. Even though like 3 factories were 
destroyed, I still got the Achievement. My advice is to just kill all the tanks
and helicopters as fast as possible. Jarvis will alert you so you're not 
completely alone.

===============================================================================
