Chapter 24: Tony’s first test flight
The genius Tony, who was at home, only took one night to reproduce the Ark Reactor.
On the other side, a group of scientists was in the studio of Stark tower. Not only was the large palladium Ark reactor next to them, they even had more comprehensive equipment and materials.
In the end, their whole group couldn’t compare to a single person. Even after more than ten days, they hadn’t been able to produce any usable energy.
Obadiah almost vomited blood as he stared at the Iron Monger, who was about to be finished, but the problem of its energy was not solved yet. Wasn’t this a joke?
Looking at Tony’s side, he had developed the second generation Mark armor in just a month.
It was said to be the second generation, but it was actually the third generation.
The second-generation Mark suit was the first modified version of the first-generation Mark armor and it was used for various experiments.
But the second generation had a fatal weakness. It was not cold-resistant, and it was easy to freeze and lose control.
However, Tony had already made improvements in the second generation according to Lu Yuan’s guidance. He had turned it into the third generation.
At night, accompanied by Lu Yuan, Tony finally put on his battle suit for the first time.
At this moment, Iron Man’s suit had not been painted yet, so its overall color was silver-white.
However, it still looked very handsome. When Tony put on his armor with the help of the steel prosthesis, even Lu Yuan felt excited.
Finally, Tony put on his Iron Man suit for the first time and stood there fully armed. His entire body was protected by the steel armor, and it was full of a mechanical sense as if he was filming a future sci-fi film.
“Perform final inspection,” Tony gave instructions.
It turned out that he had also added an AI system in his armor, and that was taken over by his intelligent butler Jarvis so that he could support its function.
For example, apart from giving a command, there was no need for Tony to personally examine every detail. Instead, Jarvis would conduct the examination and give him the result.
Jarvis wouldn’t notify Tony until there was something wrong with the armor.
There were many other advanced features, including flight assistance and so on.
Tony would not be able to control the suit once its speed exceeded the speed of sound because of his reaction speed.
At that time, Jarvis would help him control it.
“Wait, did you say that you’re going to test it today?” When Lu Yuan heard something wrong with Tony’s words, he quickly stopped him. “Don’t joke around, or you’ll die.”
Tony was too bold. He wanted to personally test the suit he had just been developed, even though a tiny miscalculation could kill him.
But Tony chuckled and indifferently said, “Aren’t you by my side? You’re my bodyguard.”
Lu Yuan was speechless. “I knew working for you wouldn’t be that simple.”
He knew that he would not be able to relax because Tony was depending on him.
“Alright, I’ll fly with you. If something goes wrong or something happens, I’ll keep you alive,” Lu Yuan promised.
Upon hearing his promise, Tony felt even more at ease.
Even Jarvis, who had originally wanted to dissuade him, did not speak. Instead, he made a prompt. “We are ready to launch. The tunnel has been scanned, and the nearby situation and map have been uploaded. We can take off at any time.”
“Then what are you waiting for, Jarvis? Let’s go crazy for once.” Tony was not willing to waste any time at all. He immediately called out to the intelligent butler to activate his battle suit. The four flying machines under his feet and in his palm shot out Ark pulses together. They transformed into powerful airwaves that made him fly.
The next moment, the four flying machines roared together, and Tony rushed out in an instant. He turned into a silver line as he rushed out of the underground garage.
At the first moment of activation, Tony had even reached the speed of sound and even triggered the sonic boom effect.
However, there was one person who was faster than him. Lu Yuan was even faster than the speed of light. He crossed his arms and maintained his standing position, but he did not need to move because he followed Tony from the underground garage to the sky.
The two of them paused in the air above the villa, one on the left and the other on the right. They raised their heads and looked into the distance. Tony felt that his mind had become blank because he saw the endless sea in front of him. This feeling made him incomparably excited.
Looking at the calm Lu Yuan, Tony couldn’t help but think of competition, and shouted, “Lu Yuan, let’s race.”
After speaking, Tony turned into a silver shadow, dragging a ray of light behind him as he flew towards the luxurious city in the distance.
It was already late at night, so he did not need to worry about causing a stir.
Lu Yuan shook his head. Racing against him? Tony really overestimated himself. He only needed an instant to go to the Sun, and Tony was still far from reaching that level. It would take him a long time to just circle around Earth.
That’s why Lu Yuan deliberately allowed Tony to fly for a long time before catching up with him. As a result, he still got ahead and stopped at the edge of New York City to wait for him.
Tony was dumbfounded and asked Jarvis, “Jarvis, did you see how he got here?”
Jarvis remained silent for a moment before he spoke in an uncertain tone: “He may have already surpassed the speed of light. Even the satellites couldn’t capture his movement.”
It turned out that Jarvis had even used satellites to target and monitor Lu Yuan’s movements, but he still could not tell how fast Lu Yuan was.
Tony was speechless. Beyond the speed of light? Was there really someone in the world who could surpass the speed of light? Wasn’t that too exaggerated?
Lu Yuan didn’t care about it at all. He even took the initiative to suggest to Tony: “Don’t you want to know how high can you reach?”
Tony asked, “Are you sure there won’t be a problem?”
Because Lu Yuan had already mentioned the icing problem of steel armor, so he started to worry about it.
Lu Yuan smiled and shook his head. Now you are worried? Then do you still want to die?
“Don’t worry, I will look out for you. Let’s go,” Lu Yuan said, and took the lead in slowly flying up into the sky.
Seeing this, Tony did not want to be outdone. The flying machines on both hands and feet spat out waves of air as he chased after Lu Yuan.
The two of them, one in front and one behind, raised their heads and headed out into the sky as if they were going to fly to the Moon.
But they were not Chang’e…
In fact, this was the performance test of the battle suit. In the end, they finally gave up when Tony could no longer bear the thin air.
Lu Yuan nodded. Tony’s battle suit was finished.
So Lu Yuan approached Tony at such a height and secretly said: “Tony, I need you to build an inferior Ark reactor. I want to give that to Obadiah. But I can’t give it to him directly, so you have put it where I tell you to, and when he comes to steal it, you can use that opportunity to copy data from his computer. It contains all of his criminal records.”
Tony looked at Lu Yuan. “You mean it’s time to close the net?”
