Origin of Iron Man: Part 1 - S1-E11

Character mistake: When young Tony Stark is telling his father that their helicopter's anti-flak chip didn't kick in, he acknowledges that it was his fault by saying he blew it. When his father corrects him and says "No Tony, we blew it. Stark and Son," Tony defensively says "The anti-flak chip failed, it's not my fault," completely contradicting what he said seconds earlier. (00:14:00)

The Wedding of Iron Man - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: When Mandarin attacks Tony Stark and lifts him in the air, Hypnotia has suddenly appeared next to Julia when the shot changes. Given that she wasn't visible in any previous shots, even if Hypnotia was standing near Julia, not enough time had passed once Tony was lifted for her to appear in that spot. (00:17:56)

The Wedding of Iron Man - S1-E13

Plot hole: When Mandarin is concluding that Tony Stark and Iron Man are one and the same, he is watching video footage of when he had Tony Stark captive, and Tony first constructed the Iron Man armor and used a dummy that looked like himself in order to fool Mandarin into thinking that Iron Man was rescuing Tony Stark from captivity. If Mandarin had video footage of Tony Stark in that room where he organized his own rescue, then he also would have had footage of Tony Stark constructing the dummy of himself in the first place, and thus would have known Stark was Iron Man from the get go.

Origin of Iron Man: Part 2 - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Fin Fang Foom and the Mandarin's two mechanical dragons are looking for Tony Stark, they are flying in a clockwise fashion above the crevice opening, and they all change color when reaching a certain position. The silver dragon starts out at around 6 o'clock and then turns into the green color of Fin Fang Foom when it reaches around 9 o'clock. Then Fin Fang Foom turns into the gold dragon when he reaches around 3 o'clock. Lastly, the gold dragon closes the loop by turning silver when it reaches around 6 o'clock. The process repeats itself four more times. (00:12:45)

More trivia for Iron Man

Answer: Gleaned from the Internet: Some critics criticized the premise of so many one-off battles that were introduced and concluded within one or two episodes. Others felt the first-season plot lines were overly simplistic and never progressed or developed through the season. Also, the rivalry between Iron Man and the Mandarin also failed to capture viewer's attention.
